Bardessono surpassed my husband's and my expectations when we were there 1st week of May 2013. Look no further...just book it! The serene location (room was so quiet we slept with the awesome exterior shade down to the comfortably furnished patio, with the door open and the romantic fireplace going all night...fresh air and solitude) is convenient to walking to everything. They arranged our dinner reservation at Bottega, across the street, for our anniversary and it was phenomenal! Katy at the front desk was perfect in every way to assure our experience was all that it could be. She is so personable and "real". It's clear she stands behind the importance of customer service, and the resort 100%. Our large room was super comfortable, great reading lights at bedside and loved the huge bathroom and no carpeting was a wonderful surprise too. Amenities like slippers, robes, chocolates, fresh roasted nuts, free water distilled on property was limitless, and even champagne were in the room in celebration of our anniversary. Pool was rooftop and beautiful as well, like the resort grounds! Technology in the room first class. The best pedicure ever is across the street at Lavendar Nail Spa. It doesn't get much better than Bardessono. We will return for sure. It's pricey, but worth the splurge for our special treat.

Whenever possible, I like to guarantee my experience. Sometimes that means shopping at a boutique market for produce where you pay more but you can be certain the produce will be perfect. Other times its upgrading to first class for a transatlantic flight so a nice meal and sleep are assured.

Many here have described the suites, the grounds and the service. Allow me to keep it simple: Bardessono is a guarantee. It's a lock. It's exceptional in every way.

Dear jbdmd,

How good is this review? Fabulous, thank you. Not sure we can guarantee a perfect stay for everybody, but I can guarantee extraordinary effort to achieve that goal.

This is such nice recognition. Thank you. And speaking of flying first class....our organic and environmentally-friendly Ren bathroom amenities from the U.K. are the same as what British Air uses in their first class cabin. Would like to suggest they copied us, but you know the reverse is true...

Please return soon and often.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

I just finished my second stay at the Bardessono within the last 12 months. I have not stayed at a hotel that can compete with the Bardessono's commitment to excellence. I brought two of my girlfriends with me this last time and enjoyed delicious wine, the amazing pool and all of the other first-class amenities offered at Bardessono. I will be returning for a third stay... hopefully very soon! This as good as it gets. Thank you, Jim and the rest of the Bardessono team for providing us with a relaxing, luxurious experience.

Bardessono is a modern and chic, beautifully and teastefully designed hotel. The decor is sleek, but service is very personable. The place is very open, relaxing and tranquil, yet very centrally located and all the fantastic restaurants (Bouchon, AdHoc, Bottega etc) are all in short walking distance.

My husband and I stayed there for a weekend with our 4-year old son. I wouldn't call this place a kid-friendly hotel, but they were very friendly to kids. They treated our son with the same hospitality they offer to any other guests and made him feel welcomed (he brought his balance bike and they took a real good care of it just like real bikes). I saw one or two other family with kids during our stay, but I never really heard kids other than our own. We didn't hear noise from other rooms or other guests at all actually (there were many people, but the place never felt too busy or crowded).

The staff were all very attentive, friendly, and pleasant. I loved their casual/relaxed "wine country" manner, but I'd also add that they were always perfectly professional - never stuffy, but professional.

Their bar and restaurant were also wonderful. They make great cocktails and food was fantastic - we had a memorable dinner there. Having its own garden made good sense - the way the cooked vegetables were all amazing.

Hotel room is spacious and comfortable. Very well equipped and spa tab was really nice touch. I also enjoyed their rooftop pool very much. It's really beautiful to be up there by the water and again, there were always people but never was too busy or too crowded. They also have a small gym which opens to a great view of their garden, and then to the scenery of wine country.

We had a fantastic stay at Bardessono. Really love this place.

Dear Bardessono_fan,

What a great Trip Advisor name. Much better than JBTYountville_CA, which is singularly boring.

We're so glad you stayed here with your four-year old. And to him, his bike is the most important possession he has, no doubt. I'm glad we treated it with the care and respect it deserves.

You're so nice to post this detailed review, which, for Trip Advisor readers, captures the essence of our hotel, its aesthetic, and our staff.

You live close by, so please return soon and often. We'll keep a place in our bike shop open for our favorite balance bike.

Warm regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at the Bardessono. It was our first trip to Napa and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The resort is beautiful, very peaceful, yet still in the middle of the town of Yountville. It was our anniversary and we were upgraded to a steam spa room. We didn't get a chance to use the steam shower, but the fact that we were given the upgrade was a really nice touch. My husband did try to use the outdoor shower after a bike ride one morning, but it was too chilly out.

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like honored guests. We arrived later than we had planned and even though I called to let them know that we would be late, the manager was waiting outside for us when we pulled up and said that they had been worried about us. We were immediately offered a glass of wine and escorted to our lovely room.

Everything is very modern and there are buttons for everything. The shades are outside the windows and are raised. lowered and tilted with the push of a button. The furnishings are sleek, there is plenty of closet and drawer space and the bed was very comfortable. I didn't love the pillows. I would have preferred something thicker and firmer.

The staff at this resort are fabulous. There is no request that they won't try to accommodate. We were taking a sunrise hot air balloon ride the morning after we arrived and when we asked for directions to the place where we needed to go, we were offered a ride there and back. It was just the type of extra touch that makes this place really special. I would definitely return to Bardessono if we get back to the Napa Valley.

Room Tip: We liked the first floor rooms.

Dear TheLarkMd,

What a nice review. Thank you so much. You really went into a lot of detail about our staff and the service they deliver. We really do try to go the "extra mile" for all of our guests, and provide, warm, anticipatory service.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and time in Napa Valley.

Should you return, which we hope you will, we have a good selection of pillows to choose from. Just let us know what type of pillow you prefer in advance of your stay and it will be waiting for you.

Warmest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

You must stay at this property! We were looking for a place for one night (many require 2-3 night minimum), and Napa Valley Reservations sent us to Bardessono. It was fantastic from the moment arrived. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the property is very quiet and private, rooms are spacious (especially the bathrooms!) and well appointed, and the location just off the main street in downtown Yountville couldn't be more perfect. We walked to Redd for dinner and Bouchon for breakfast in minutes. The rooftop pool was relaxing and serene. And the hotel is super eco-friendly if that is important to you!

Room Tip: The hotel rooms are in little clusters/groves around fountains. We were in the Cypress Grove....ver...
