Hidden gem, in the middle of no where, so to speak. The staff was great, and the premium king room was worth the upgrade. Its about an hour from Napa, but close to Concord, Berkeley and Oakland.
Restaurant on property was excellent, and there's a spa on site, which we didn't take advantage of. Overall an excellent stay. A+

We slept in this morning and woke around 8:30am. We have been sleeping in a lot recently which has been nice for a change. We get up, eat our breakfast, shower and prepare ourselves for our passport application process.
We drive into the city of San Fran and get stung with a $4 tax entry fee. This highway was at least 10 lanes deep, the traffic going in and out was absolutely mental. We drive in and realise it's just like any other city driving around one-ways and trying to ...
... and lots of pine trees/for trees. 8am til 10 am - until Placerville. Then it was downhill fast! Shingles was 1,423 ft; El Dorado Hills was 622ft (at 10.15 am). Then 76ft at Rancho (?) at 10.36; and 25ft at 10.44.
We saw what looked like rice paddies near Sacramento. And at 11 am it was 26C.
Bryan said the drive through the forests (til 10 am) was the ...
... Some of you will recognise Minka Lisle's name. I don't think she'd have given me a second glance 40 years ago! Seafood wouldn't normally be my first choice of food, but it's impossible to avoid in San Francisco. Every restaurant is a seafood restaurant. On this morning's bus we were told that this season's Dungeness Crab is one of the best it's been for many years, so I thought id give it a go. Not being a crab connoisseur I don't ...
... in the air. Entry into the US was an interesting exercise, 4 fingers of each hand pressed onto a scanner and then each individual thumb, we didn't get patted down nor our bags x-rayed so it was relatively quick compared with some immigration procedures we have experienced The buses here that we are using are all totally black both inside and out and look like giant hearses! The one we used to come from the airport had some seats facing the front ...
... amp; playing a whole bunch of other games. Looked like a Frat / Sorority thing before everyone got drunk & ugly but again a bit if business team bonding goes on here. Sounds to me like a lot of business people wish they were back in College. Back home we made pasta, garlic bread & salad. I sampled some lollie water '**********ade' - dangerous, 5% alcohol but no alcoholic flavour. Perfect if I was team building on a grassy knoll! Early-ish to bed as another bit touristy day ...
