“Loved the Hennessey House B&B”
Reviewed May 21, 2008

We loved the Hennessey House. It is located in downtown Napa on Main Street. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do and it was such a cozy and relaxing place. The owners (a married couple) were so accomodating and eager to help with directions, reservations and suggestions of things to do. We felt so at home and so relaxed during our stay. The breakfast served each morning was home cooked and delicious! The grounds are beautifully manicured like a garden paradise. Our room was clean and charming. We loved it.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the Hennessey House while we explored the wine country. Everything about this B&B exceeded our expectations. Kevin and Lorri are charming hosts and have not overlooked anything. Our reservation was expertly handled and we were warmly greeted upon arrival. Every member of the staff is cheerful and willing to help in any way. They gave us excellent recommendations on what to see and do and where to eat. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The common areas invited you to sit down and make yourself at home. We did our morning Bible studies drinking coffee in the living room just as we do at home. The only things missing were our dogs! There is a courtyard perfect for an after dinner drink and conversation. The location makes for an easy walk to excellent downtown restaurants and there is plenty of parking in the rear. Did I mention Lorri's breakfast? She personally makes a gourmet meal for you to start your day. Fruit, breads, egg dishes all brought right to your table. Even when we had to leave before breakfast to catch an early flight, Lorri insured that a continental breakfast was prepared for us in the refrigerator. We could not have been happier with the Hennessey House and can recommend it without reservation.

My husband and I stayed at the Hennessey House to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. We stayed in the Mary's Delight room and was very spacious. The king bed was very comfortable leading to very long restful night sleep.

The staff was very polite, friendly, readily available, and very accommodating. One night we came home from our anniversary dinner with dessert, and Lorrie (owner) was there to help provide us with plates and utensils, even though it was fairly late in the night.

The breakfast maybe more "exotic" for some but we certainly loved the "twists" they did from the classics. Instead of the classic boring french toast, one morning they did cranberry apple french toast. Other mornings were southwestern egg strata which was similar to a quiche with southwestern kick and spicy baked eggs. Yum! Another one of our favorites was the mozzarella herb muffins which were served with the breakfast and we're hoping to get the recipe.

Overall, the Hennessey House exceeded our expectations and certainly made our stay in Napa very memorable. Hopefully, we will be able to return to the Valley and would certainly stay at there again.

The owners and the front desk staff were really friendly, nice and helpful. The room we stayed in was remarkable, clean and interesting. Breakfast was really great and you can tell that a lot of attention was given in its preparation. We would definitely go back to the Hennessey House the next time we visit Napa.

This is a well run B&B. Our room on the first floor of the main house was spacious; the bed comfortable. There is nightly wine and cheese before dinner and fresh bakery in the evening. The breakfast was fine and plentiful. It would have been almost perfect except in the morning our car was burglarized in their car park, despite the sign that said, "24 hrs security." The innkeeper expressed his concern verbally and said we could stay in the inn sitting room until our replacement rental car arrived.

Just another reason to always remain vigilant about your possessions and do not leave anything even mildly tempting in your vehicle despite the lovely surroundings.

  • Liked — The little touches: wine & cheese, bakery, port in room
  • Disliked — Car park said "24 hr security" and that was not true

henhouse, Owner at Hennessey House Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, April 27, 2008
I would like to thank these guests for their nice comments regarding the property, rooms, and service. My wife and I were very shocked to hear about the theft, which occured on the last night of their stay. I spoke with the guest in person regarding the incident and he explained he had inadvertently left his portable GPS device on the front seat of his car. I expressed my concern and told them we would do anything to assist until they were ready to be on their way.

The guest never mentioned his concern about security to me, so I never had a chance to talk to him about it. Hennessey House does maintain a staff presence at all times in order to best serve our guests. As an additional deterrent, we also post a sign that warns anyone with inappropriate designs to go somewhere else. We are located in a quiet residential neighborhood.


Sincerely,
Hennessey House Management

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hennessey House and were very pleased with our stay. Everyone was helpful and it was within walking distance to "downtown" Napa.

We stayed in the Paisley room which is the smallest room in the house and had no complaints. The bed was very comfortable, and the room had a very homey feeling.

The free wine and cheese is the afternoons were a nice before dinner snack. Wonderful backyard to sit and relax after a long day of wine tasting.

The only thing that I disliked was the breakfast selection. I'm a picky eater and most of items are somewhat exotic. They did have cereal and yogurt available to everyone as an alternative; so there was a little something for everyone. Everyone else raved about the food though and commented morning after morning about how great it was.

I would stay here again and would recommend this B&B without hesitation.

We stayed three nights in the bridle suite and it was wonderfull. We had ordered a so-called "winter-package" which included champagne and truffles at arrival and a full day wine tour. The room was fantastic. It was large and had a nice fireplace and a two-person jacuzzi. It was nicely decorated and details had been given much thought. The rooms at Hennessey house do not have TV's which is great in my opinion. There is however a TV room in the main house in case there is something you absoulutely can't miss. The breakfast is served like a three course meal and it varies from day to day. Quite good, but a little to much for my tase. There is also complimentary cakes and coffe around 3 pm every day and wine and cheese in the evening. The wine tour that we had was great. We were picked up at the hotel by a nice driver and spent a wonderful day drinking wine togheter with an american couple.
I would definately stay here again and I would make sure to have the same room.
