“Quiet Gentle Charm full of Delightful Surprises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The Petersen Village Inn is in the center of all that is so special about Solvang. There are a lot of fine places in Solvang and often it is difficult to choose where to spend a few days in this amazing area. So much to experience and do. The Petersen has many options with their Dining or Theater packages. Their web site is a good place to experience how special they are. I am personally very sad that I did not try their French Onion soup - I came in too late and plan a special trip just to dine in their utterly charming dining room. Yep - we will be going back soon. The room and hotel reminds us of a place we stayed at in Paris - but of course THIS room in Solvang is larger - HAHAhahaaa. So for us a stay here really enhanced the Solvang experience. I could on and on but just take a look at their web site and then give them a call.

Room Tip: A corner room perhaps.. Sunday to Thursday (Our personal preference..)

Impeccably clean. Attentive staff. Imaginative pricing packages. Central but quiet location. Architecturally charming. And a restaurant with Danish/Continental food that is truly world-class!!

We stayed in the Peteresen Village Inn with friends and were very impressed by great reception we received on booking in. The staff were very friendly and provided a great first impression. The room was light and airy and had plenty of space. The bed was extremely comfortable and the amenieties in the room were excellent. The hotel een provided complimentary coffee on an eveing as well as breakfast. We had dinner at the hotel and the food was probably the best we had during our stay in the US, 3 courses for $35. I would certainly stay at the hotel again and recommend it to friends. The hotel was located right in the centre of the village so was great for exploring. Definitely a hidden gem as is Solvang.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the courtyard as they are nice and quiet.

I was excited bringing my family to Solvang for our most awaited long weekend and was proud to tell them that we are staying to a very nice Inn in the area. But to my disappointments, as well as my family, we were not able to sleep well in two nights because of the warm temperature in the room. The hotel maintenance the next day pushed a button at the thermostat and said now it fixed. During the next evening, we all could not sleep because again of the uncomfortable room temperature. I called the front desk at 3:00AM and no one answered the calls. We were placed in a room behind the main building, thus I have to walk outside our building and walk through the parking lot to go to the front desk so I decided not to, instead we just opened up all the windows. But it was worst because there is an equipment above our room that runs very loud. It was a very uncomfortable stay for a very expensive inn in the area.

By far the best hotel we stayed in during our visit to the states. Four poster beds, large rooms, lovely fluffy pillows. The staff were above and beyond. The food was the best food i've had in America. I really can't say enough about this hotel. The only down side to it is that they dont have a pool, but there's so much to do, like wine tasting, there's no time to swim and also the restaurant is not open to the public so it's a shame others can't experience the quality of service. Fantastic, we will definately recommend Solvang and Petersen's to friends and family.

Room Tip: top floor facing greenbelt is quieter and more tranquill

Six of us stayed at the Petersen Village Inn for 3 days under their "pay for 2 nights & get the 3rd night free, plus 2 free dinners and 3 free breakfasts (per couple).
They exceeded my expectations! The rooms were clean & spacious, beds comfy, food was excellent and the staff was more than happy to help in every way possible.
We would return there without hesitation.

Room Tip: Inside courtyard view is nice, plus balconys are available

With it's "old world charm" The Petersen Village Inn is my only choice in Solvang, California. The property is immaculate and the staff always friendly and accommodating. My highest recommendation.
