I can't say enough about the Bardessono! The staff and concierge exceeded all expectations. Thanks to the Bardessono we had a fantastic wine tasting day with an awesome driver and were able to secure reservations at French Laundry. Be sure to book an in-room massage and take advantage of all the amenities the hotel has to offer. Looking forward to our next Bardessono stay!

We visited Bardessono in April for our honeymoon and my birthday. From check-in to check-out, the staff and accommodations were perfection. We could not have felt more attended to and relaxed at this incredible hotel. The grounds are breathtaking and the food is wonderful. The staff was always present (from turning down beds to cleaning our room while we were out) but never "in the way." We felt so wonderfully relaxed and taken care of at Bardessono. It's worth every penny and we'll be back as soon as we can! Thank you all!

We visited in January of this year and loved every moment of our stay.

The rooms are beautiful and spacious with fireplaces and huge bathrooms. We had a soaking tub and indoor/outdoor shower.

The staff is very friendly and helpful; they greet you with a glass of wine and helped us with some of the final details stay (i.e. the best deli to get sandwiches at, choosing between two vineyards to visit, etc.). We had a small issue with the room but they took care of everything and made sure we were happy with the outcome. We enjoyed breakfast at Lucy as well. We loved the heat lamps/fire pits in the morning/at night!

The hotel is conveniently located and you can walk anywhere in Yountville. They also have a hotel car that will drop you off/pick you up at places around town. We left on a holiday and they shipped some wine back for us.

As it was winter, we didn't spend time at the pool but did venture up to get a peak and it looked wonderful.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the Napa/Yountville area.

Dear plush366,

Thank you for staying with us in January and posting this wonderful review. Napa Valley is an "outdoors" place year round, but it does get cool and sometimes rainy in the winter months, which is why we went to great length to make our outdoor areas warm and friendly year round.

So glad you enjoyed yourselves here. Please come back in warmer weather and enjoy our pool next time.

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

There could not be a better located hotel for anyone serious about food. This property is right in the middle of Yountville, and all of the favelas restaurants are just a short stroll away. But don't overlook the food at the hotel...which is also superb since they have rather stiff competition with all of the town's most excellent restaurants. This hotel features a lovely common area with a large courtyard surrounded by water, where it is sheer pleasure to sit with a drink or coffee. The staff here is exceptionally well trained and helpful, the grounds and rooms perfectly clean, and the attention to 'green' and sustainability is mission #1. All great. The only thing that was not perfect was my ground floor room was not as private as I would have liked. The staircase going up to the second story rooms in the building had a view into my "private" walled patio and bedroom. This was the only flaw. Had I had a second story room, or a patio with true privacy, this would have been a 5 star rating.

Room Tip: Some of the downstairs rooms are not as private as one would want. There is a staircase going up to...

Dear Ono O,

Thank you for staying with us and posting this thoughtful and detailed review.

I would be less than honest if I didn't admit to being a bit disappointed by four circles instead of five, but completely understand your rationale. We are reviewing all sightlines in the hotel, as privacy for our guests is of utmost importance to our guests and us.

We hope you otherwise enjoyed your stay and appreciate all the nice things you said about us. And we'll be sure to have an upstairs room for you next time.

(On a personal note and having spent some of my career on Kauai, "ono" is such a great word in Hawaiian - it means "really good" and is also the Hawaiian word for the delicious fish - Pacific wahoo. When I saw your name it brought back great memories. Thank you.)

Kindest regards from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Probably the best place to stay in Yountville. My wife and I just spent three wonderful nights at Bardessono and would go back in a heartbeat. If you are going to stay in Yountville, this is the place.

Staff - were very accommodating at every turn. Always seemed anxious to help you with any request that you might have.

Food - We dined at their restaurant called Lucy and I was served the best Halibut dish I've ever had. It was very fresh and flavorful. Each morning there is a coffee set up at the bar along with complimentary Bouchon Bakery pastries.

Spa - I had a massage in a very nice setting. Great therapist.

Pool - Rooftop! The young man working the bar service was simply outstanding. He relocated an umbrella for us to use and it was extremely heavy. He was on the ball.

Maid Service - the maids were very accommodating and never interrupted us.

Gym - Very small but I got my workouts in.

The hotel offered a shuttle service to all of the local restaurants and shops. The vehicles were either a Lexus or another type high end vehicle.



If you go to Yountville and stay at Baredesso you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces inward to the courtyard area in order to avoid cars driving by on the outs...

My husband and I spent three nights at Bardessono and it was an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff have an incredible way of making you feel very special...each interaction they truly seemed to be interested in your day, your plans, etc. While a beautiful and high end property, it is not stuffy at all. We would like to point out how great the valet/doormen/bike getters/chauffeurs were...these guys were so nice and helpful. They really are the backbone of this operation and we appreciated everything they did for us..so helpful.

Our room was in the 'Cypress' block of rooms and we loved it. It was modern, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and the outdoor shower was a nice treat...my husband used it everyday. When else can you shower outdoors amongst nature?! Our room was spotless each day and the turn down service was done very well.

We spent a good amount of time at the pool and loved it. The cabanas are very nice, they offer complimentary sunscreen and the pool waiters provided great services. The food was good and I loved having a few 'green leed' drinks poolside...very tasty!

We did not have dinner at Lucy, the on site restaurant, but we did have breakfast there twice. The service was prompt and the food was very good...you could certainly taste the freshness and quality of the ingredients. We also had a few night caps at the bar and that was a nice experience as well. The service was good and enjoying the drinks outside near the fire pit was very relaxing.

Lastly, the hotel facilitated the shipping of our wine to our home. We completed a form and left the wine in our room. The 'jack of all trades' doormen got it from our room and a few hours later we received the UPS tracking number. It was very reasonably priced as well.

All of the little touches (welcome glass of wine, water bottles with bikes, complimentary sunscreen, purified water in the room, quality toiletries, etc) along with the impeccable service make this hotel one of the best we have ever stayed at. It was an experience, not just a hotel stay. We even saw a celebrity staying at the hotel! The beautiful town of Yountville and Bardessono made this vacation a memorable one.

Dear LB1202,

What a great review. Thank you so much. You wrote a detailed essay about your experience here, and touched on so many of our attributes. We're all delighted that you had such a wonderful time at our hotel and the great little town of Yountville. This is a special place, indeed.

Above you mention our staff, particularly our valet team, our bikes, rooms, outdoor showers, breakfasts, pool, and all the little touches we do to delight our guests... and shipping wine purchases for our guests is just one of them. And celebrity sightings here are not uncommon, though we fiercely try to protect their privacy, as we do for all our guests.

We hope you'll be back soon and can't thank you enough for your support and friendship.

All best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.
