An older hotel completely renovated and refurbished last April, and it came out great. Beautiful minimalist Scandinavian décor and furniture. Located in the heart of Solvang, which is a wonderful tourist spot--great for a weekend getaway or 2-3 night trip. Complimentary continental breakfast every morning including pastries from some of the good local bakeries. Windows are sealed closed, so one...

This hotel really excels in service, from the front desk to all persons in the bar and the restaurant. The manager in the dining room came to check on every table to make sure all was OK. My room was big with a comfortable bed. #39 corner room on the second floor. Although it faces the street you barely hear...

Most of the hotels in the Solvang area are iffy at best. The Landsby is beautiful and the design details are carried throughout the property. There are a few items that still need to be worked out; light switch by the bed and better offering for continental breakfast. However, the overall experience was positive and I would definitely stay there...

As soon as I walked in, I felt like I was home. It's light, warm, soft and everyone greets you with a welcoming smile. I had a tour of the property and every room is quaint, beautifully decorated, with a tiny sack of lavender on your pillow to ensure a good nights sleep. The robes are amazing! The breakfast skillets...

I recently took a trip out to California, the first stop at The Landsby. I was completely blown away. The decor of the entire place (I mean every inch, from floor to ceiling) is so well thought out. Natural materials mixed with more contemporary elements made for a gorgeous, yet super cozy atmosphere (think, lavender sachets on the pillow). The...

We chose The Landsby to celebrate our anniversary. Great choice. Location was excellent after playing golf and wine tasting. We stayed 3 days. Happy hours is crowded but didn't loose the boutique feel. Kudos to Erika at the restaurant!

Room was fine but the morning breakfast during the week is wanting. Particularly if one wants to prepare for wine sampling later. Might as well not even include it and go in search of Danish breakfast options.

My husband, toddler and I stayed for two nights over MLK, Jr. weekend in the Tower Suite King. We booked this hotel (and the trip) thinking that we would have a two-story room (as advertised) so we could relax downstairs while our child slept in a crib upstairs. What we didn't learn until check-in was that our room was not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Landsby, a 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 welcoming lobby and bar have a lively atmosphere and makes for the perfect place to 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. All guests have access to the property's outdoor garden lounge. It provides an oasis for guests to 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 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. Our Executive Chef creates dishes that captures flavors from around the world and incorporates them into foods native to the area. The restaurant offers dinner Tuesdays - Sundays days in addition to daily breakfast. Complimentary breakfast is 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
