The rooms were spacious and allow for easy movement throughout to enjoy the private outdoor patio, living room, bathroom and shower areas with no encumbrances. The room offered wide doors, roll-in showers with sauna, easy to use adjustable shower head and tasteful grab bars throughout. Although the room was very accommodating, you won?t feel like you are in a room designed for disabled clients. The disabled accommodations flow cleanly and tastefully where needed. You?ll also really enjoy the in-room massages. The set-up is quick, quiet and overall the experience is peaceful and rejuvenating. A huge plus for any guest - a simple yet appreciated gesture, and one that most every other hotel charges significantly for. They offer triple filtered glass bottled water every day so you always feel refreshed.
The grounds at Bardessono are beautifully landscaped with wonderful stone water features and indigenous trees and plants to create a tranquil and beautiful "Zen-like" feeling that also blends seamlessly into the cozy town of Yountville. They also feature a spa lift so disabled clients can enjoy the wonderful roof top spa and scenic view. Yountville is just a short drive from Napa, Calistoga, and St. Helena?close enough to enjoy the many wineries yet out of the way from a lot of the daily wine tour traffic.
Staff members from kitchen, spa, grounds keepers and host were all amazingly attentive and proactive in offering any assistance that might be needed from ideas and suggestions on what to enjoy locally, to providing a special door stop to enable easier entrance and exit from the room.
Food - You'll be pleased to enjoy the selections from their Restaurant, Lucy, where your selection will include locally grown (on-premise) organic fruits and vegetables. The food quality is excellent, very flavorful and fresh. Overall 5 out of 5.
