We took our team here for our Christmas party and booked 9 rooms. We also had our dinner party at the restaurant. The chef helped with the menu in advance which was excited well. We were unhappy with the table set up and to my relief the assistant food and beverage manager stepped in and saved the day. The decor... More

This was my first time here and I found this boutique hotel to be very classy and comfortable. Management and the staff are eager to please and everyone I encountered was very nice and helpful. We had a garden view room on the lower level - the walls and ceiling were quite thin and there was a constant high pitched... More

Beautiful contemporary décor throughout the hotel. Our room (#28) overlooked the charming courtyard and was spacious and comfortable. Excellent restaurant. The drive on CA 154 through the backcountry to connect with 101 and return to San Diego was also a special treat.

Would not honor our original price through hotelsOne.com even after Julie, at the hotel proper said the price would be the same. I called within the 48 hour limit to let them know that we were coming in a day later & to make sure the price would be the same as we booked originally. As we were not home... More

Hotel is really well-kept from the lobby to the Junior Suite we stayed at. Very clean, no smell, gives you 2 water glass bottles for free. Just don't make a mistake of taking the glass bottle home coz it will cost you $20. Well, I really love the bottle but don't want to pay $20. So I went looking for... More

Nicely designed contemporary hotel with great bar and restaurant. This is a real treat in a town without much to do but a great home base for winery tours. Ask for a room facing the courtyard on the upper floor.

Although this hotel is situated in the heart of Solvang, it is a welcome departure from the expected and tacky designs that proliferate throughout the city. The modern Scandinavian design of the hotel's interior creates a warm, yet hip, atmosphere. Even though you can tell that they kept most of the bones from the prior hotel, they did a very... More

We liked the hotel. Minimalistic. Very clean and everything is new. Caters to a younger crowd however, so we plan to try Hotel Corque next time. But not to say we would not return to this very nicely located and well priced hotel.

Great location, nice room, friendly staff, fabulous bar. We had a room in the middle of the hotel, upstairs. It was quiet, and easy to access with the stairs or elevator. Parking was convenient. Breakfast was granola, yogurt, cinnamon roll (homemade), coffee or tea. It was good and the staff was excellent! We will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Landsby, a newly renovated 41-room boutique hotel, brings a unique hospitality offering to Solvang. Located in downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the property combines a bright contemporary design with Scandinavian elements inspired by the town's Danish roots. The Landsby, which means "the village" in Danish, offers an authentic hospitality experience to both visitors and locals. Designed by Santa Monica-based design firm, Studio Collective, the hotel incorporates a Scandinavian lodge aesthetic with a design nod to the past. The hotel lobby has been completely reconstructed to add relaxed lounge spaces and a new bar. The bar's lively atmosphere will be the perfect place for patrons to gather and enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of locally-produced wine. The bright and welcoming guestrooms, including several junior suites and our signature tower suite, is finished with blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, genuine leather accents and sophisticated, yet comfortable, handcrafted furnishings. The rooms feature whimsical artwork commissioned by a regional artist and thoughtful accessories, which work together to create a residential ambiance. Standard room rates start at $225 and suites start at $329. All guests will have access to the property's redesigned outdoor garden lounge. This new space will prove an oasis for guests can relax and unwind among lush landscaping and romantically lit trees. Additionally, the property serves as an ideal retreat for meetings, with multiple meeting venues offering a total of 2980 square feet. The property also provides full-service amenities, catered meals from the restaurant, as well as access to courtyard and garden areas that can be used for breaks. Mad & Vin, the hotel's highly anticipated restaurant, is inspired by the local wine region of the California coast. The name of the restaurant, which translates to "food and wine" in Danish, continues to play off of the hotel's Scandinavian inspiration. Executive Chef Seth Nathan will develop a specialized menu that captures flavors from around the world and incorporates them into foods native to the area. The restaurant offers dinner seven days a week in addition to daily breakfast. A complimentary breakfast will be included for all hotel guests. Located 35 miles northeast of Santa Barbara, The Landsby is centrally located in downtown Solvang and steps away from boutique shops, bakeries, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, wine-tasting rooms, and restaurants. ... more   less
