Great Romantic Escape

It was my first trip with my new girlfriend and our first time to Napa. It was so much fun and romantic. We used Platypus Wine Tours and Mark our driver was fantastic. We met some great couples on the tour. By the third winery we were best of friends. The food was amazing. Recommend Mustard's Grill and have the pork chop. La Residence was perfect for our stay. We wanted a country feel and that was what we got. Tucked away but still close to what we needed. Staff was so friendly. Rooms were super clean. The pool and hot tub added to our romantic feel. Overall great time and look to go again .

Cozy and lovely

We needed an easy place to stay for the night and we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful grounds, the cozy and comfortable room and the evening wine tasting. The breakfast in the morning was fresh and delicious! Highly recommend!

A perfect base to explore the Napa region

Our only regret is that we did not book for longer. We had one night at La Residence in one of the cottage rooms. The room was large, very private with a nice outlook onto a small patio garden area shared with the adjacent rooms. The staff were very pleasant and informative about the region. A nice touch was the wine and cheese every evening which helped us to meet some of the other guests in a relaxed manner. The grounds were beautifully maintained, good pool area and a secluded hot tub area. The only very slight negative was the proximity to the main road but in truth that did not bother us at all. Would we stay there again? Absolutely. Can we recommend it? Definitely.

Napa Weekend

Great place if you are going to wine country and don't want a "hotel" experience nor do you want the small B & B. A perfect size, great staff, well located for those wine tasting trips. Nice pool and hot tub. I would definitely stay here when I visit Napa again. This is not a family vacation spot, I would say it was more a romantic couples location.

quiet, comfortable

Even though located on the highway through Napa Valley, our room in the main building was quiet and private. Very comfortable bed, large lovely bathroom.

Disappointing

We had high hopes. The websites photos were so nice. However, we were disappointed by a bed that was so soft that my back hurt the next day, a room with no dvd player (though most do have dvd players) and that was just so so, and a staff that just seemed to want to give the bare minimum and no more. Being super friendly goes a long way with us, but this place does not have a friendly atmosphere. And, although the breakfast room is nice and comfortable, the breakfast is blah, nothing special at all. Coffee, on the other hand, was very good. Overall, not worth the money at all.

Good....

Overall la residence was fine. The staff was great, but it was the little things that made it a 3 star rather than a 4 star. First, I felt as if I rented a cabin rather than stayed at a hotel, for Some that would be fine, but I like a busier atmosphere. Second, the continental breakfast, skip it, it's not worth it even when it's free. Like I said la residence is fine, just don't expect 4 stars and you will enjoy it.
