  • 6.0.Good

    Beautiful hotel but horrible bed

    The hotel was amazing, loved the location, courtyard with the fire pit, complimentary wine and cheese at 4pm every day and the staff was great. The only down fall was the bed, it had a huge dip in it and made the loudest noise everytime one of us moved. If they replaced the beds I would be back everytime I came to Carmel, but unfortunately the bed is so uncomfortable that our 2 night stay was quite sleepless.

    Pampered guests

    We were pampered with breakfast in bed, cream sherry and a fire, and fresh fruit.

    Just perfect. The rooms, appointments, little extras, fixtures are all excellent- luxurious even. Bed is super comfy, fireplaces and firewood a nice touch, the decanter of sherry upon arrival! Staff is great. I would have liked a more elaborate breakfast to match the rest of the visit, but that's minor. Still a good breakfast.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Wonderful stay

    Very good once again. Second year we’ve stayed here. Great service. Need more towels in rooms. No coffee in rooms but Quinn, the front desk manager, got us a small Mr Coffee and other items so we were set. Above and beyond! However at this price point shouldn’t be a. Issue. Otherwise great place well located in wonderful spot, Carmel by the sea.
