“Honeymoon stop over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

Excellent place to stay. We are just gutted that we couldnt stay longer. Everything was perfect from the room to the service and the breakfast was awesome. It was also excellent to meet the owner at breakfast. We stopped in the aqua room which had a massive bathroom and hugh TV!! Thank you Old World Inn for a great stay.

My husband and I stayed in the Chocolat room at the Old World Inn Cabernet House and loved our room! He was especially fond of the projection TV inside our huge poster bed. From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel at home. Tom showed us where everything was and gave us some restaurant recommendations - most are within walking distance to downtown Napa, which is very conveneint after a long day of wine tasting. We especially enjoyed being able to stroll downstairs to a lovely breakfast each moring and hearing about all the great wineries from the other guests. The french press coffee, available at any hour, was awesome! We loved getting our decaf and plate of desserts each night and enjoying them in our room. I would highly recommend The Old World Inn if you're seeking a place to relax and enjoy all that wine country has to offer.

Room Tip: We stayed in Chocolat, and while we heard some moderate street traffic, it wasn't so much that i...

This was our second visit to the Old World Inn. We absolutely loved everything about it. The buildings are beautiful, the staff is excellent, the owners are warm & welcoming, the location is perfect & the rooms are clean, comfortable & beautifully decorated. We truly won't stay anywhere else in the valley. The breakfast is amazing, the evening wine tasting is fun & personal and the cookies, chocolates, brownies & coffee are excellent. You will not be disappointed.

Nice B&B, although not completely quiet as it is on a main street ...pay attention to the room descriptions when it says not the quietest room. We arrived and were shown aoround the pantry and made to feel welcome immediately. Great nightly wine tasting and chance to mingle with guests.

Excellent food, comfortable beds, great helpful staff!

Room Tip: Secret Garden room is very noisy especially if you think you may want to sleep in.

We stayed here for a couple of days mid-week in August - and our experience here was OK. The owners are very friendly and helpful - they provided us with good tips on what to do in Napa and pointers to some good wineries. And their french press coffee is delicious. But apart from that - we thought it was a very average as far as b&b's go. Our room was really small and cramped - for the price, and the decor made it seem very impersonal and cold. The breakfast was really disappointing - it's a sit down affair where they start with a small serving of fruit followed by some variation on a bread-pudding / quiche. No variety at all and not very hearty.
They do wine-tastings .... but very limited and small selections.

My husband and I had our first trip to Napa for my birthday (we're also newlyweds 9 months) as well as the first time in a B&B and the Old World Inn was amazing! From the moment you walk in, you are taken to a different place in time with the old Victorian home that has been renovated. The rooms have very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are small, however the spa tub is large and very sufficient. When we arrived in the evening, there were treats like homemade brownies and truffles waiting for the guests. Also, in the evenings the inn owner Russ has a different winery representative come by for a tasting in their wine cellar for the guests. The breakfast was amazing and beautifully served! No buffets here! We were extremely happy with our choice and are planning to return next year!
