Reviewed February 19, 2014

We came to Bardessono last year for a mini honeymoon and returned this year for our wedding anniversary. We love the peaceful surroundings and sustainable environment. We also brought our pups, so we appreciate a hotel as beautiful as Bardessono would allow us to bring our pets,who were spoiled and pampered as much as we were! We love the doggie beds and bowls that were provided for them during our stay. Thanks again!

Room Tip: Definitely splurge on a king spa suite with the outdoor shower. The outdoor patio is a peaceful spac...

Dear mssophiag,

Thank you for staying with us again and posting this very nice review. We're so glad you honeymooned with us a year ago and then returned for your anniversary.

We enjoyed serving you both and the pups this time, and hope we'll be an anniversary tradition for you.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

I'll preface this by stating we've been fortunate enough to have stayed at some of the best boutique hotels in the world...and Bardessono surpasses almost every one of them. Let's start with the service...from the GM, to the hostess at Lucy who helped us with coffee, to the guy who drove the hotel-provided Lexus truck to deposit us at the fantastic Michelin-star-associated restaurant (Redd Wood...also highly, highly recommended) they were able to book for us even though we'd failed to provide them any kind of notice: kind, accommodating, meticulous and comfortable in that "welcome home, long lost friend" kind of way. We were visiting for our 11th anniversary and absolutely everyone remembered to congratulate us. We stayed in a King Spa Suite, and would highly recommend. The quality of the fit out is superb: high-quality bed linens, firm but comfortable bed, spectacular outdoor bathtub, steam shower (that wasn't really steamy, though the shower pressure was great), and romantic in-room fireplace. We didn't eat at the restaurant, though it was lauded by Chris and his guys at Robert Sinskey (hands down our favorite vineyard). There are several very well rated hotels in Napa, but we hate being isolated and outside of walking distance like most of them are. At Bardessono, you can walk to all the wonderful places in Yountville, from Bouchon Bakery across the street, to Ad Hoc a few doors away, to tasting rooms and shops. In all, absolutely perfect. Thanks, Bardessono. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All are fantastic, but cheek with the hotel if it's Magnolia season...they encouraged us to visi...

Dear mmbuhrig,

What a nice review. Thank you so much. We're delighted you chose us to celebrate your anniversary and enjoyed your stay. Your kind words about your room, our staff, and our location are deeply appreciated.

Our magnolia trees in the Magnolia Grove are in full bloom and spectacularly beautiful, as are our olive, cypress, and birch trees, but without blossoms. Your picture captures them beautifully.

We look forward to your return. It will be nice to greet and thank you in person.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

The Bardessono was truly an amazing place with excellent service! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, and they made us feel very special from the second we arrived. We received a personal greeting with wine and later a bottle of champagne was sent to our room as a gift. The only bummer was that it rained the entire time so we could not take advantage of everything that the Bardessono had to offer outside, but it was still incredible. Our room had so many neat features that I didn't mind staying inside. On a side note about the service, I was enjoying a cup a coffee in the bar area and saw a man walking outside in the pouring rain without an umbrella. Out of nowhere, a staff member rushed outside from the lobby to hand him an umbrella to make sure he stayed dry. I could tell that the guest was a little take back and surprised by the quick gesture, but he seemed to really appreciate it. They really do take care of you during your stay and make sure even the smallest things are covered.

My wife and I are already planning on coming back because it is such a neat place and right in the heart of everything in Yountville. It was worth every penny!

Dear Gcmax,

We really appreciate your staying with us and this nice review. Whenever it rains here, which has been rarely this year, our hearts go out to our guests (as do our umbrellas.) Napa Valley, Yountville, and Bardessono are special places; and while wonderful in any weather, they are magical in the sunshine.

Thank you for your kinds words about our rooms, our staff, and the service we deliver here.

Please come back soon.

Warm regards from now sunny Napa Valley.

We had an amazing stay here at the end of January. Antonello showed us around the hotel and then to our room (in the Magnolia section). The room was wonderful!! The attention to detail and how attentive the staff was was also very nice. I will say that if you are on the lower level, the people above you can be a little disturbing if they like to walk around a lot (wood/stone floors). The people above us must have had a small child playing with toys early our first morning.

I want to say that Antonello was SO nice! He'd greet us by name every time he saw us. He seemed genuinely happy to see us and talk to us when we saw him. One night we ate at Bistro Jeanty, and he recommended the Tomato Soup - it was so good!!

They don't have a free breakfast like many other Napa hotels, but they do offer muffins, coffee and tea in the bar to tide you over until you get breakfast.

We did have a drink in the hotel bar twice - loved the guys in there (good lemon drop martini). They do have a few TV's - we watched the superbowl there. We also ate in their restaurant - Lucy - once. The antelope and gnocchi were wonderful!!!

We hope to come to Napa off season again and stay here (it can be real pricy in high season).

Room Tip: A second floor room, or one that doesn't have a room above it would be quieter.

Dear SherriLR,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this great review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and your dinner in Lucy.

I'm sorry, though, that your upstairs neighbors were a little loud. We'll put up in an upstairs room next time. Fortunately, among our repeat guests, preferences are about evenly split between upstairs and downstairs rooms. The beauty of the downstairs rooms are the outdoor showers, as well as indoor steam showers, which the upstairs rooms don't have.

We hope you'll be back...soon and often.

Warmest regards from your friends at Bardessono.

Jim.

There wasn't one thing that wasn't perfect the weekend we stayed here for my wifes 30th birthday. The atmosphere is fantastic and luxurious the moment you walk in the front door. We walked into a room that was simply incredible, with small details taken into account. Fireplace inside the room with a full private patio outside including a table and lounge chairs. The bathroom had dual sinks, spa tub and a steam shower that has a door that opens to the outside private shower adjacent to the patio. On the edge of the hotel are small and wonderful vegetable gardens for the hotels great restaurant, Lucy, which they actually serve as fresh as can be in their menu (Check out my Lucy Restaurant as well).

The hotel provides brand new Lexus' for 3-4 hour test drives. My wife and I took one out for a drive around the valley and were given an amazing route to take through the Napa mountains, highly recommended if you need a break from all the wining and dining.

We woke up in our room one morning to an in-room spa treatment. Once the massage is done they quietly leave your room while you are still relaxing. All of the staff we encountered were kind and accommodating. They truly do all they can to please the guests. Simply tell them what you need or want and they will take care of it. Everything from this trip made this the best getaway that we have ever had. When considering the plethora of hotels located in Napa Valley, do yourself a favor and choose Bardessono.

Thank you for choosing Bardessono to celebrate your wife's 30th birthday. And thank you for posting this thorough, detailed, and wonderful review.

You clearly enjoyed Bardessono to the fullest by dining in Lucy, having in-room massages, and taking one of our Lexuses for a drive. Your kind words about our garden and food are appreciated, as is your nice mention of our staff and efforts to delight our guests.

We hope you will celebrate more birthdays and anniversaries here going forward; and happy Valentines Day to you both.

Warm regards from your friends at Bardessono.

Our stay was focused on my wife's Birthday. I wanted it to be special and it surpassed my expectations. We have never been treated so well. The facility is world class. I cannot think of any aspect that I would suggest upgrading. The in house restaurant "Lucy" was a very pleasant surprise. It could easily stand alone as a top local establishment. The key, was the people. Everyone we came in contact with focused on our needs. I have no idea how so many staff addressed me by name and were always asking how they could additionally help me. If you go to the Napa area and do not stay here you have made a serious error.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good.

Great staff and wonderful amenities. The room was spacious and comfortable. The location is ideal. The grounds were not only beautiful, but serene and inviting. If I can afford it, I would stay there all the time.

Green Features: They were the only hotel with NEMA 14-50 and J1772 chargers. They seemed very environmentally conscious.

Dear doctortraveler168,

What a nice review. Thank you. We really appreciate you posting it now, considering your stay with us was nearly a year ago..

I hope Quebec City (one of my favorite Canadian Cities) is enduring the winter storms well. You know where to come should you be in need of sunshine, great food, and wine. (Although it's raining today...)

We hope we'll see you back here soon.

All the best from your friends at Bardessono.
