Hip, fresh, forward Scandinavian are words that come to mind when I think of the newly renovated Landsby in the heart of Solvang. Cool bar scene, with some custom cocktail creations, and an inviting sense of arrival. The whole hotel is done in tones of gray and off white- with some ochre and soft white accents. None of your grandma's floral wallpaper or chintz here.
Uber cool design elements abound in the blond wide plank floors, interesting fixtures, painted wall paneling and ceilings, and the contemporary yet comfortable furniture. Nothing institutional about it, just refreshing clean lines and the occasional well placed soft textured touch.
The dining room is attractive and there is a small adjoining deck with a few tables outside. The rooms are contempo elegant without being overdone- clean and nicely appointed. The bed was all kinds of comfortable. Our renovated bathroom was on the small side, but lacked for nothing (and it was stocked with l'Occitane shampoos and soaps).
John at the front desk is friendly and eager to point out the changes made since the Landsby reopened after its makeover. A wonderful place for a getaway. We'll be back for an encore.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Landsby, a newly renovated 41-room boutique hotel, will bring a unique hospitality offering when the doors open April 16, 2015. Located in downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the property will combine a bright contemporary design with Scandinavian elements inspired by the town's Danish roots. The Landsby, which means "the village" in Danish, will offer 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, will be finished with blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, genuine leather accents and sophisticated, yet comfortable, handcrafted furnishings. The rooms will 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 will serve 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 will offer 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
