From the moment of check-in with the exquisitely moustached, and enthusiastic, concierge, Nelson, to the gentle giant, Vladimir, in the spa, the weekend was superb … and all too short. The staff was considerate, courteous and attendant. The breakfasts were sinfully delicious (try the pancakes!) and dinner was a delight. The morel mushrooms were plentiful and good, good, good. We loved the spa so much that we went both days day for massages. Vlad’s hands are the size of dinner plates and he works on those kinks so hard you can actually hear him huffing and puffing. Our room was clean and comfortably spacious. We particularly liked the in room espresso machine (we’ve seen it before, but only in Europe). We have been to Mendocino numerous times, but, without exception, this was the best.
