I chose this B&B based on the wonderful reviews and photos on Trip Advisor. I was really disappointed when we were shown to our room. For nearly $300 a night, I didn't think it was a good value. We stayed in the Barrel Room in the Merlot House. The feel was very industrial - not a homey B&B. The room...

Literally can't express how amazing this inn is! The room was perfect and the bed was super comfortable!! Michelle at the front desk is awesome! She answered all of our questions and gave us great recommendations! She really made our stay at the inn that much better!!! All around a great place to stay while in Napa!

My wife and I went to Napa for our first time and didn't know exactly where to stay....we got lucky! We will return to Napa someday and now we don't have to wonder where to stay. Breakfast is included and that's what you need before wine tasting begins!

Stayed here for a week. Location was 4 blocks from downtown and riverfront. Outstanding amenities to include wine presentations in their wine cellar in the evening and dessert treats left out when you came in later. Excellent breakfasts. Rooms and bedding always clean and crisp. We stayed in main house. Courteous and efficient staff. A must stay!

We visited the Old World Inn for a birthday "staycation". The photos of the property on the website made it look charming and welcoming. The location is walking distance from downtown Napa so it made for good odds for a great time. Well, let me say, their service knocked my socks off. The room was gorgeous and well appointed, they...

We stayed in the cottage behind The Cabernet House. Absolutely wonderful. The cottage was roomy and comfy! We even hosted a Green Bay Packer party for 6 while we were there. Shared wine and brought in food from a local Italian restaurant. The staff is wonderful and met all our needs. Packed a breakfast to go when we needed to...

Outstanding B&B perfectly located in Napa city. Short walking distance to downtown and all the restaurants. Wonderful charm and yummy breakfasts. We stayed for 4 nights in the private cottage which gave us lots of privacy and plenty of room; something that I heard other guests complain about in the bedrooms they stayed in within the house itself. Our bedroom...

The old world in, is a nice retreat away from the fast pace that we arrived from. It is a larger B&B, with several rooms. The house is older, but the rooms are very comfortable, and the clerks/concierge were very helpful to us upon our arrival. They offer activities in the morning including breakfast, as well as evening wine tasting,...

From our check-in until our departure 4 days later(a sad day indeed) we couldn't have been more impressed with the Cabernet House. A group of 8 of us from FL ...all celebrating our 50th bday's stayed at the Cabernet House during the first part of September. Just a little background...My wife and I consider ourselves Bed and Breakfast aficionados, as...

This is a fairly large bed & breakfast with 3 different buildings. We stayed in the Barrel House rooms (basement level of the Merlot House). This room is unusual in that it has 2 king size rooms that share a bathroom (not for everyone). We chose this option as it was extremely good value for Napa lodging. There are 2...
