This is a beautifully renovated hotel. Our room was large with a nice seating area. Yes, it was quite pricey, but that is common for a hotel right in the middle of a tourist town. The staff was very friendly. A continental breakfast was included in the rate. It consisted of granola, yogurt & cinnamon roll, all homemade & very... More

Right in the middle of picturesque Solvang, it is an easy stroll to the shops and cafes. Plenty of parking behind the hotel. Mission Drive is the main street of Solvang so it can be noisey and congested. The rooms are spacious but the bathrooms are a bit small. The complimentary continental breakfast was good but boring with too much... More

With taxes the most basic room was over $400. The room was new, modern, and clean, but very small. Let's remember this is Solvang, not Paris, not Manhattan. For that price you would expect a suite with all the amenities. Landsby does not even have a pool. Street noise enters the room. They had a promo for 2 free drinks... More

This should never have happened and the hotel is very sorry about that, your drinks and tea should have been there for you, please respond to me so I can adjust those charges and I would love to have you back and make sure our customer service is at it's best. Unfortunately we are a downtown hotel and it can... More

Stopped for one night with our teenage children and so disappointed we didn't stay longer! This hotel was beyond lovely!!! Staff was so courteous, rooms were so charming and spacious and located right in the heart of town. I've stayed in many 5 star hotels and this is up there with the best of them. Felt very European. Also, very... More

A truly wonderful hotel in a sweet and fun town. Perfectly located on the Main Street near cafes, shops and restaurants. Hotel staff friendly and the rooms were one of a kind. Very spacious, big TV, mini fridge and lovely desk. Nice amenities from L'occitane as well. I truly Loved the decor and colors of the room. The lobby and... More

We spent last night at the Landsby and we loved it. We arrived and park in the free parking at the back of the hotel. The hotel is every hip, decorating a minimalist Scandinavian style with very design furniture. The San Diego design firm Studio Collective did the remodeling and it is terrific. The room was very nice, comfortable and... More

Very nice place indeed. Much like visiting Denmark. Can only be done in the U.S. Interior of hotel elegant, nice lounge - bar - reception area with great wines and nice atmosphere. Breakfast was not great so if there was one improvement then maybe this. Fantastic place and great staff.

Visited at 7:00 for lite dinner and drinks. Sat at a table in a very comfy, bright environment. It took a bit of time until the waitress took our drink order. I ordered the a Black Knot and hubby got the Whiskey Claret. Slow to come, but very refreshing and well mixed. The one glaring feature is the menu prices,... More

Stopped by this place for dinner and it was a delicious surprise...it is unlike most restaurants in solvang. The salads are good and the hummus plate was ok. We had also the burger which was delicious and lamb which was good - all entrees are good sized portions. The bar is low key and the restaurant/bar offer well made cocktails... More

We only stayed one night, but wish we had more nights to stay. We had a small dog, and they were very accommodating. Infact the dog rooms have balconies are above ground level. The entire hotel has been redone in a tasteful minimalist style. The grounds well maintained, although it would be nice to have a pool. Location is right... More
