Yountville is the gastronomic capital of Napa Valley, and Hotel Yountville arguably the best place to stay therein.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

A total of 80 rooms and suites at the newly reopened property are located in freestanding two-storey cottages dotted around the attractive grounds. The rooms themselves are lovely and large, with excellent bathrooms and private outdoor space. The feel is all about cosy comfort, with four poster beds, fireplaces, Jacuzzis, big towelling dressing gowns, even bigger TVs and the now ubiquitous iPod dock.

The Hopper Creek restaurant is open for breakfast, if you can drag yourself away from your room and room service, and quick bites are available at the casual but elegant Y Bar or by the pool. While the food at the hotel is excellent, the reason to be in Napa is to explore the restaurants and vineyards, and the hotel have arrangements with several local wineries for special offers and discounts.

The hotel also has a cypress-tree surrounded swimming pool and another Jacuzzi open until midnight with an outdoor gorgeous fireplace. There is also a large spa, the Spa AcQua, spanning four thousand square feet and including an indoor whirlpool, six spacious treatment rooms with private patios, two couple's spa suites and luxurious double hydrotherapy tubs.

Why we love it

The location is ideal as you don't to drive to restaurants and wineries. The notoriously difficult to book French Laundry is just ten minutes walk away.

Located in Sonoma County, this intimate family-run property started out as a humble B&B, and retains that personal feel. Though there's nothing humble about the accommodation, which in true Ralph Lauren fashion has taken an English look and done it better than the original.

Exterior at Kenwood Inn, luxury hotel in Napa & Sonoma Valley

Kenwood Inn

Located in the Valley of the Moon and surrounded by vineyards, oak trees and fruit trees, guests would be forgiven for thinking they’d gone to sleep in America and woken up in the Tuscan foothills, such is the Italian villa feel to Kenwood, and the Apennine Mountain-like scenery from the bedroom windows.
