This is a beautiful old home, with spacious, very clean rooms. Whole house has a feel of a well lived in, spacious old home. Susie and Al welcomed us with a glass of wine and many of the imformation we needed for our visit in the valley. Our bedroom had a very comfortable bed and a very large bathroom with big, thick towels. Peace and quite at night was almost unbearable after three hights in San Francisco in what was the most noisiest hotel we would ever stayed in. We slept like a babies that night just to awake to absolutely delicious, fresh breakfast Susie made for us. Both Al and Susie are great hosts and we would stay with them again anytime.

We were extremely disappointed. It is the biggest mistake I've ever made in online accommodation booking. The place was nothing like on the website - the grounds are a total shambles and exhibit years of neglect. The outdoor furniture was filthy and much was broken. There was dried up cat sick on the front patio. The pool was filthy as were tables and chairs on back verandah where ashtrays full of cigarette butts looked like they'd been there a while. Our first instinct was to leave and find somewhere else but because it was late Saturday on a very busy weekend in Napa we were concerned about finding another room. Inside was pretty awful too - there unclean smell on enterting the house. The main sitting room was full of clutter. The carpet on the narrow staircase was very dirty as was the carpet on the hallway upstairs. The room we were supposed to have was awful and the bathroom gave me the creeps. The housekeeper must have realised it wasn't good as she was keen to "upgrade" us. The room we ended up in was clean at least and had a much better bathroom but the decoration left a lot to be desired. Al and Susie are pleasant friendly people. I feel guilty writing a negative reivew but I think it's time they completely renovated the property or moved on. I would be embarassed to have people stay in my place if it was anything like Hillveiw. We were very relieved to move on. Sorry.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hillview Country Inn. Ron and Susie were wonderful hosts and the food was delicious!

We were treated wonderfully. Al and Susie made some recommendations for things to do and places to go that suited us perfectly. All in all a wonderful holiday.

My two girlfriends and I had a wonderful, wonderful experience at Hillview Country Inn. Excellent location in the midst of gorgeous vineyards with hot air balloons filling the skies in the mornings. Perfect location for visiting wineries all over Napa Valley. Al and Susie are beautiful people who really care about their guests having a great visit. Susie makes deliciously fresh, warm breakfasts every morning to prepare you for a full day. Beautiful house with gorgeous yard. Wouldn't dare think to stay anywhere else in Napa! Thanks so very much for such a lovely, lovely vacation Hillview Country Inn!!!

Hillview Country Inn was off the beaten path and the setting definitely country, but it offered excellent service with all the amenities, delightful rooms, and a delicious country breakfast. The owners were extremely helpful and congenial. I wish I could have stayed longer and would go back in a heartbeat.

We stayed in the Harvest suite, and no one else was staying there that night, so we were offered to upgrade to a bigger room, but decided to keep the Harvest room for the bathtub. Al and Susie were really nice, and we enjoyed talking to them. Breakfast was good, fresh fruit, bacon, eggs, banana pancakes. They do have cats, but they are really friendly.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Hillview Country Inn bed and breakfast! When we arrived, we were given a warm greeting and offered glasses of wine, a nice touch being in the wine country and all. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we just sat on the deck enjoying our glass of wine and taking in the views. Our room was very cozy and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us! The breakfast was absolutely delicious along with some coffee and fresh orange juice. We will definitely return again!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hillview Country Inn. Al and Susie were warm and hospitable. When we arrived, they poured us a glass of wine and told us about the area. They had home-made brandy that you can help yourself to after you get home from dinner. The room was quiet and clean and it was an overall enjoyable experience.

Initially, Hillview Country Inn was hard to find but the GPS did a great job. Al and Susie, the owners, met us as we drove up and were quite open and welcoming. Our room was called the "rose room" and was, indeed, decorated in that motif. The bed and room was very nice and quite comfortable. Susie coooked breakfast and the first morning it was just us but the second morning the table was full. The only suggestion we would have is to perhaps replace the carpeting on the stairs leading up to the second floor where the 4 rooms are.

Our first experience with a B&B, and it was so charming--the food was excellent, hosts were friendly, resident cats were adorable, view was breathtaking, bedroom and bathroom were immaculate (and huge)! The four-poster bed was to die for. Listening to the Napa Valley Wine Train go by at night was an added perk! The only negative was the narrow entrance from Solano Street.

We enjoyed the stay and the people.

This place was great. I became a little iffy when we drove up and it was so close to the overpass, but once I checked in I completely forgot about that. The smore packages were a really cute touch! The food at the restaurant was amazing. I would drive there from the city just for dinner. Highly recommend staying here sometime!

Al and Suzie were amazing.....we felt like we were visiting family. We'll definitely be back !!!

Hillview Country Inn is a bit on the older side but is charming and full of antique furniture. Al and Susie were wonderfully welcoming and had many fun stories to share. Susie is an excellent cook - breakfast was amazing!

The Hill View County Inn B&B was a neat place to stay. The breakfast was very good and the atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing with all the trees.

Not good value here. Property is rundown. Carpets need replacing and bedding is worn. Air freshener smell is distracting. Breakfast was ample and good. Proprietors are very nice.

Al and Susie make the place what it is! Our first night, we arrived late and Al stayed up to greet and welcome us. Susie's home cooked breakfasts were fantastic.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Inn in September. We had a lovely stay. The Inn is charming and very homey. I admit I was a bit concerned booking on line because the price was so reasonable, but everything was great and service was outstanding. We will visit again!

A very disappointing place. Dust and clutter were everywhere. The carpet on the stairs and in the hall were filthy. Walls were well worn. I wanted to relax in the yard; but, this yard had not been watered or cared for. The pool was green and the lawn furniture by the pool was covered with mildew and dirt. I was told I could enjoy the beautiful back yard if I arrived early. This place needs major improvements and clean-up.

I have had the pleasure of knowing the innkeepers, Al and Susie, and think they are the most delightful people. They are charming, personable, hospitable and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Incredible value with this charming Napa B&B!

We liked the Hillview a lot - their rates were better than any of the other B&B's and the innkeepers are the friendliest people.

My husband & I stayed at this B & B in Oct. 2006 for 3 nights and were very disappointed by the decor, the furnishings, and the grounds. They are all seriously in need of updates.
