My best friend and I had a lovely time staying here. The woman who owns the house is very friendly and makes one hell of a breakfast! She also makes fantastic wine. I am sure anyone who stays here will have great time.

Scores above were completed in order to complete this survey. We had to cancel our reservations 2 days before we were due to arrive. The cancellation date was too late to receive a refund but the owner gave us full credit to be used for a future stay. This understanding/compassion was greatly appreciated.

This is totally an amazing, private and luxury guest house to stay in. Great wine, food, service and surrounded by the vineyards and olive trees of which we received the gift of. Could not have asked for more. Roberta is an attentive, intelligent hostess who actually enjoys having her guests enjoy sharing the property.

This is a fantastic estate in the middle of the wines and so quiet and private. Roberta, is a fantastic hostess with finger licking food and impeccable hospitality. She gave us a fancy soap gift wrapped upon arrival and made us an amazing breakfast including a raspberry tart. The sheets are fantastic and ironed!!! If you stay in town, you will hear the freight train every morning at 5 am but here is far away from any noise. We were two couple who stayed in the guest house and usually stay at 5 star resorts only and this was a fantastic retreat. Can't wait to go back.

We did a last minute booking for the Labor day weekend, and had the great luck that this charming cottage was available for us. Seeing as it was last minute we did not have any great expectations, but I have to say this was an absolutely perfect place to stay. First of all the location is so nice on top of a hill overlooking the vines, second the house and vineyard itself is so charming. The cottage you stay in was nicely decorated, fresh, with all comforts that you could possible need including a fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful pool to relax by when coming home from the wine tours. The best part of this stay was however the hospitality that we meet from Roberta. Not only did we have a complementary bottle of her great wine per night, we also got snacks to go with it including the house olive oil, and the breakfast on the patio in the sun was just great. The best part was also that Roberta herself is a great hostess, full of stories and information and can give you insightful tips on where to go and what to do when in Paso Robles. Overall I can highly recommend you to stay at the Bella Collina it will certainly be the icing on the cake during your Paso Robles Stay.

Bella Collina is a beautiful B&B that served as a wonderful retreat for tasting wonderful wines, enjoying delicious foods, and exploring Paso Robles and surrounding areas. We were two couples looking to get away from the city, relax and enjoy, and this unique B&B, and its owner Bobby were just what we were looking for. We arrived to find Bella Collina sitting atop a hill surrounded by its own vineyard. We were graciously treated to warm breads, cheese, and a complimentary bottle of the vineyard's wine, which was as good or better than anything we tasted the entire weekend. Every morning, Bobby made custom breakfasts atypical of many B&Bs with standard fare. She accommodates anyone with particular dietary needs, including one of ours. The accommodations were great, a true respite from the city, and we enjoyed great beds, linens, a fully stocked kitchen, which she encourages you to use and an overall feeling of serenity amongst the vines. On top of it all, Bobby will point you in the right direction for all the wineries and places to eat in the area. I highly recommend Bella Collina to anyone looking to relax, unwind, sip and eat in Paso Robles.
What a delight to have these two young couples to stay for the weekend. I enjoyed their company Looking forward to your return.

My family just enjoyed a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving stay at Bella Collina. Bobbie was a gracious hostess, her property lovely, her wine delicious, and gourmet food abundant and tasty. The 2 bedroom guesthouse was comfortable for my family (4 adults and 2 children) and the kitchen and living room space worked well for gatherings and dinners in. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Bella Collina to anyone looking for a peaceful and lovely visit to Paso Robles.
This is a wonderful, loving family you never want to see leave as they are so gracious, intelligent and caring. I enjoyed all of you and wish our time could have been longer. Know you are going to be met with open arms when you return.

My wife and I had 2 friends join us for a short weekend at Bella Collina. The 2 bedroom villa provided a great retreat from our busy weekend. Bobbie, the hostess, greeted us with wine, artisan bread and her award winning olive oil upon arriving. Sitting in the rose garden that first night watching the stars and sipping Bella Collina Cabernet was a restful way to end a busy travel day and get ready for some relaxation. Bobbie greeted us with a varied morning breakfast each day. The quiche and scones on the second day were my favorite. The beds were easy to sleep in and the accomodations were clean, up to modern standards and very comfortable. We could have, would have loved to, stay more days but a return to a busy schedule was required. Our brief time at Bella Collina was the perfect respite from our normal hurried routine. We did leave with a case of Bella Collina's award winning 2006 Cab as well!!

Beautiful hilltop location! Majestic views! Wonderful B&B owner who was full of dining suggestions & winery stops! Wished our 2 nights could have been 2 weeks!
You are not blessed every day with guests who are just so wonderful to meet. It makes my life richer having you here and I look forward to your return. Now sweet Jade is the princess around here.

We just arrived home from a wonderful stay at Bella Collina. The room and view were spectacular. Roberta is a special hostess. She had everything ready for us and later prepared bread and olive oil and tamales that were delicious. Breadfast this morning was super; eggs, ham, fruit, juice and condiments. We were very spoiled. Thanks, Roberta. Phil and Cheryl
Thank you for your review. I really enjoyed having you both here. The roses are really coming in now. They are so beautiful and the grapes are bursting forth with new growth.

We arrived after a 6 hr. drive, in the rain, and tired. Bobbie met us with wondeful hor d' oeuvres and a bottle of the 2005 Cab. Most amazing. We can't say enough about the guest house, location and Bobbie. 3 day stay in an extraordinary place. A Christmas stay we will always remember. Returning in April. Our thanks, Mike and Linda R
Thank you Linda and Mike for your review. Christmas this year was even more special with your being here. Mark really enjoyed the chance to talk to Mike about their very similar career paths and love of riding. I am looking forward to your return when the roses will be at their first bloom and glorious.

We had such a great time at Bella Collina. The property is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The guest house is so cozy and comfortable. Roberta was extremely welcoming and friendly, we loved her! Bella Collina wine was excellent, too! We loved it so much we can't wait to plan our next trip to Bella Collina in the next few months! I would definitely recommend this B&B!
One of the things I love best about having the B&B is being able to share my home with such guests as these two beautiful couples. I look forward to having them back to stay at Bella Collina.

Our Mother's Day weekend began when we flew to CA from Chicago and met our son, daughter-in-law, and 10-week old granddaughter who had traveled from the East Coast. After arriving somewhat later than expected, we were welcomed by owner Roberta Weideman, and found dinner as well as a bottle of her wine waiting for us in our La Bella Rose guest house. We spent 4 nights with Roberta, enjoying her wonderful breakfasts, evening appetizers, bottles of wine, and very interesting conversations. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, with roses in bloom everywhere. Although we didn't use the pool, we did talk and read beside it, and also took advantage of the great views from all sides of the elevated property. After eating the Roberta-prepared and delivered breakfasts, we spent our days visiting several of the Paso Robles wineries before returning to Bella Collina for another Roberta treat: homemade before dinner appetizers and wine. We were able to spend quality time with our son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter in our own two-bedroom guest house at Roberta's beautiful Bella Collina villa. When in the area again, we will definitely stay with Roberta! Tim, Paula, Jason, Ciara, & Keelin

Spending time at Bella Collina is like spending time at a treasured family villa. The warmth and beauty of the surroundings along with your incredibly attentive hostess makes the experience both comfortable and memorable. Well-appointed guest rooms, delicious food and award-winning wines complete the stay! Our family will be delighted to go back again and again. Thanks again, Elena, Carl, Megan and Chelsey LeBel
Very special guests who stay here are missed when they depart because they are great to meet, always interested in the vineyards, rose gardens and enjoy great wines. My life is blessed with this extended family of friends.

Our 3-night experience at Bella Collina was more than we could have ever imagined. We were greeted by our spirited hostess, and given a private tour of her beautiful estate which included vineyards, olive groves, and fragrant rose garden. The sunsets were stunning! Our first morning began with warm, pillow-soft homemade biscuits and jam. In the afternoons, our gracious hostess, Roberta, created gourmet appetizers, featuring her home-grown olive oil. In the evenings, we were treated to a complimetary bottle of Bella Collina's award-winning wine. Roberta clearly has a gift for welcoming people into her home, and making them feel like long-lost family. Knowing that my husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, she had a dozen of the most gorgeous red roses waiting for us in the guest house. Thank you, Roberta, for sharing your home and heart with us!
One of the most beautiful gifts given to me is when people who truly love each other come to stay. It was wonderful having you both here. Your gracious spirits still light up the guest house and the property. Thank you for choosing Bella Collina to celebrate your anniversary.

Visiting Bella Collina (Beautiful Hill) is like going to visit a favorite aunt-if she is an award-winning wine/olive oil maker/gourmet cook who lives in a villa overlooking the Central Coast wine country. The B&B features the amenities of a resort,but with more privacy,personality,and value. Upon arrival my friends and I (on a girl-friend/wine-tasting get away) were impressed with the grounds (the roses are amazing), which includes a large swimming pool/spa, as well as with the fully-appointed,two-bedroom guest house. It also has the comforts of home–if gourmet meals are routinely delivered to your door/you sleep on imported sheets. After the speediest check-in ever, I swam,while the others napped. The owner, Bobbi, disappeared into the main house,returning with a goat cheese salad appetizer, served with home baked bread and the house olive oil. Between the amazing food Bobbi prepared, our own goodies, and the well-stocked kitchen we did not have to eat out-giving us more money for wine. That evening we attended the Atascadero Wine Festival, featuring wineries (including Bobbi’s excellent label) from around the County. The Festival is held at the scenic and shady Atascadero Lake Park–a short drive from Bella Collina’s secluded,but not-too-remote location. Good friends,good wine,good food made for an idyllic summer evening. The next morning we were greeted with quiche and scones with strawberries /fresh whipped cream. Before heading out on our wine tasting tour and eventually our way home,we were given a tour of the vineyards,olive grove,wine cellar,and the main house. Of course,we could not leave without some wine and olive oil. Within days one of my friends booked a visit for her anniversary.In addition to wine tasting, she and her husband plan to visit nearby beach towns. We all look forward to visiting in the fall for harvest, in spring when everything is a gorgeous green, or for another unforgettable summer day.
These three ladies were a delight to have here at Bella Collina and I await their return. Intelligent, energetic, very lovely and appreciative. I love to share my home with you. Thank you for your beautiful review.

We had the opportunity to stay at Bella Collina and had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Roberta's hospitality was superb, and the accommodations very nice and comfortable. The rose garden, in bloom at the time, we unbelievable. I would thoroughly recommend this establishment!!
I always feel as though I am on vacation because it is so wonderful to have beautiful people come to my home to spend time enjoying this special place. It is a blessing to me. Thank you for your review and I look forward to seeing all of you again.

What a lovely find and wonderful hostess! My husband, teenage son and I were just thrilled to discover Roberta's La Bella Rosa while searching for an affordable accommodation that would meet our high standards, provide privacy and comfortably sleep the three of us. Every corner is beautifully decorated and the fully equipped, chefs kitchen begs for longer stays. There are many luxury details throughout the 2 BR suite including breakfast and evening appetizers served on Villeroy & Boch china. From the genuine warm welcome that greeted our arrival to the delicious home cooking, fabulous wines and incredible valley views, our stay was memorable. We can't wait to return! Cindy, Gary & Robbie Santa Monica, CA
I truly believe that wonderful, very special people who come to stay are such a blessing to me. I am looking forward to your return. Thank you for your thoughtful and kind review. I appreciate you.

We needed a "quiet" couple of nights away from everyone and everything. Bella Collina provided that and much more. Beautiful rose gardens and vineyards, with star-filled skies at night. Peaceful and serene with absolutely delicious appetizers and fresh-baked breakfast goodies, prepared by Inn-keeper herself! Roberta is gracious and warm, with helpful dining suggestions, winery suggestions, shopping suggestions etc. If you need pampering and some rest for your weary souls...Bella Collina is waiting for you! We will be returning as soon as we can!
Thank you for that wonderful review. I am the one who feels having you here to stay brings the blessings to me. When you are here, this is your home and I look forward to your return.

This cozy cottage was fantastic. Quiet, quaint, personal service, beautiful setting. We would definitely go back again. Bobbie's cabernet is delightful. Thank you for being such a caring hostess. Linda, George, David, Suzanne, Dan, Cathy
It was wonderful meeting all of you. All of you are welcome to come back to stay at Bella Collina. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to post a review. I appreciate it.

This is a spectacular setting in the middle of vineyards. You have no idea you are only a couple of miles from Paso Robles. Roberta is a wonderful, caring host who also happens to make great wine. Lovely two bedroom cottage.
Having delightful guests to stay here at Bella Collina is such a blessing to me. Many remain good friends. I especially love when they bring their children and grandchildren.

Bobbie will take care of you like family. From the welcoming bottle of award winning wine and tasty treats to the comfort of the guest house, you'll feel at home. We traveled with another couple and it was just fine. Be sure to ask for the orange scones - whom even Julia Child would be proud. Artisan or Panolivo should be done for dinner. Bring your bathing suit for a swim or a soak. Honest and warm hospitality. 5 stars!
Bella Collina guests are always gracious and interesting to meet. It is a pleasure to have great people here to stay. I feel that my life is enriched by their presence and I always look forward to their return.
