Our favourite rooms
For a sampling of the hotel spa in your own room, the over-sized Luxury Room in the Main House has a full free-standing spa-therapy bath tub set beside the pillow-piled canopy bed. There’s also a honeymooners’ hideaway (Room 12) which is secluded from the other rooms and guests and has its own patio area amid the grassy gardens. Better still, it’s directly under the spa so you can go straight from soul-soothing to slumber (or seduction). Luxury Rooms 7 and 9 in the South building both have river views and private balconies – ideal for summer breakfasts.
There’s no pool, but cushioned wooden lounger and parasols have been set up on the grassy riverbank.
Bring a car – Milliken Creek is delightfully out of the way, so to make the most of navigating Napa you’ll need your own wheels.
This intimate Inn is best suited for cosy couples' breaks.
