The room was very clean, the bed quite comfortable, and plenty of space for 2 people. My daughter treated me for my birthday. I enjoyed a massage in the spa (on property) and she took advantage of the spa tub in our room! She loved it! The food in the dining room was wonderful! Outstanding lobster bisque. Highly recommend it!... More

The Hadsten House is a great place to stay in Solvang, I have stayed here several times for business always a great price. Solvang is a great place to visit, the Hadsten is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I stayed here on this trip just over night on my way to Santa Barbara.

Beautiful hotel. Spacious rooms, very clean. Indoor pool, outdoor hot tub. Walk to everything in town. Little market next door in case you need anything. Wednesday is Farmers Market 3-6pm. Free wine tasting at select wineries in and out town, also buy 1 get 1 free! Breakfast buffet included with room stay. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, fruit, toast, cereals, oatmeal, juice... More

We arrived in Solvang for a getaway thinking we would just find a room when we got there. But to our surprise there was a wine festival going on and every hotel was booked. We were lucky enough to find this jewel. It was the last room available and at a high price unfortunately. I must say that the rooms... More

Don't let the appearance of the exterior fool you...this is a wonderful hotel! It looks like an old motel on the outside, quaint but old. Once you get into a corner suite with a jacuzzi tub room...it all changes! They have done an excellent job keeping the place up, the decor, bed, fireplaces, and jacuzzi were fantastic! The indoor pool... More

This was our second time visiting, we actually had a great room, and slept well. No problems there. However, steer clear of Rory, the manager of the restaurant. She's EXTREMELY unprofessional, and obviously has not had proper training in dealing with delicate situations. We complained upon check out, and we were told that they commonly hear that. So, get rid... More

This is by far one of the best breakfasts, that was included with the room price, we have had traveling. Fresh fruit, bacon, extremely good scrambled eggs, oatmeal and potatoes. Our room was very comfortable and quiet.

The room was well decorated; felt like old Europe. The fireplace was a nice touch. It's located on the edge of town, but that's STILL really within walking distance of everything. It made it nice to walk UP one of the two streets, and DOWN the other...town tour done! We got there on a Wednesday, which was the Wednesdsay Wine... More

Beautiful room and good breakfast, however the shower mixer in the bathroom didn't work so we only could have a bath. While reporting it at the reception I heard ohh I am sorry, but nothing was done about it. Also the hotel internal pool is useless as is too cold. No surprise there was no one there.

I am very sorry the pool was cold during your stay. Despite being and indoor pool, we do try to keep it heated to 82 degrees from 8am to 10pm daily. Unfortunately sometimes parts fail. Our pool maintenance is handled by the company that owns us and so while you may not have seen anything done I can assure you... More

We enjoyed our stay. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The jacuzzi area was fabulous. We ate one dinner in the restaurant and is was delicious. My massage from Linda was one of the best I ever had. We were there for a week and the breakfast food options were always the same which was disappointing. The coffee was... More
