“Romantic and cosy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Charming little house in the center of Solvang, walking distance from the main street, far enough to avoid the crowd.
Excellent restaurant, with some creative dishes.
Very pleasant and smiling staff, everything contributes to make your stay memorable.
On New Year's eve there was a little festive buffet end of the afternoon, and we found a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us in our room; very nice attention.
Perfect for a romantic week end...

Room Tip: We had room 9. Large and beautiful, with a jet tub... perfect.

We've been staying in Solvang during a yearly visit to Santa Barbara for years. We had become disappointed in a different hotel because of the staff's poor treatment of visitors and found this one through the Trip Advisor reviews. It could not have been a better experience! The staff was very accommodating and the accommodations lovely and well located to walking around the charming town. A special treat was the Inn's restaurant where we had dinner the first night. It was my sister's birthday and they had many nice touches...like having "Happy Birthday" on her menu and a special dessert! The food was delicious and presented very well.
We definitely plan to return.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor in a suite which had a separate sitting room, which was perfect as my siste...

I was not aware of this restaurant until I searched for somewhere to celebrate our anniversary.

The reviews are correct. You are welcomed at the door by a very friendly young lady.

For dinner we had the benefit of the outstanding chef. We had the filets (perfection) and the wild mushroom crepe with tarragon creme sauce.

The servers were excellent and the wine-list good.

We have stayed several times at the Mirabelle Inn in Solvang, most recently at the end of October 2012. It's a very welcoming and relaxing place. The staff and management are really incredible, first rate. The restaurant is terrific, with delicious, imaginative choices and extremely high-quality, fresh selections. Breakfast is wonderful, and in the afternoon they offer a nice array of complimentary wines, cheese, savories and sweets. The outdoor patio is lovely. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. The location in town is ideal. Ever so slightly off the main drag, but within a five-minute walk of pretty much anything you'd want to do in town, including numerous wine-tasting opportunities. Less expensive options are available to be sure, but the value here is great. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. And it's only a few minutes' drive to a variety of attractions, wineries and recreational activities. Highly highly recommended. Wish the towels were a bit softer, but otherwise this place is perfect.

This Inn is absolutely lovely and the staff even better! The Inn is beautifully decorated - the
atmosphere is calm and peacefull. You really do feel like a guest in a friend's home.
The breakfast was perfect -not a lot of heavy food and the wine tasting in the parlor is a great way to start off the evening. We didn't have a chance to try the restaurant but the menu looks superb! We will be back. Natasha is a great hostess...

Ok, so state of mind is important when awarding "stars" to a hotel, but even after intercontinental travel and uncertain plans, our welcome and room at the Mirabelle were bliss. We had a lovely large room, huge bed, fireplace, table & chairs, sofa etc, beautifully decorated, plus a living room with balcony - perfect for a glass of wine after a long day's travelling!
The staff are incredibly welcoming, and couldn't have been more helpful. Even by typical Californian "have a nice day" standards! Often official 5* hotels "help" and offer services, but the warmth isn't there. That is so not the case at the Mirabelle - a genuine interest in guests enjoying their stay was evident in everything the staff did and said.
I am fussy, and generally manage to find somethign that's not perfect wherever I stay. At the Mirabelle it was the bathroom, fitted in the 70s or maybe 80s so starting to look a bit dated, and needing a bit of manouevering to get round the basin/toilet/shower. But like I say, I'm fussy, and this was so irrelevant in comparison to the rest of our stay I'm not sure why I even bother to mention it.
Every evening, wine tasting, a selection of local wines to help yourself, with cheese, bread and sweet snacks. (Bad for someone who needs to think about what they eat, particularly coming back late at night after a good dinner when a piece of fresh cake is sooo tempting...)
Breakfast freshly prepared and different each day: scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, fresh fruit salad, fresh pastries (Danish, of course...)
Absolutely somewhere we'd return to if ever we go back to Solvang, and the same room again!

Room Tip: We loved Room 10, with its balcony and living room as well as bedroom and separate bathroom. Perfec...

mirabelleinn, Owner at Mirabelle Inn, responded to this review, September 22, 2012
The staff and I are so very grateful for all the kind reviews and the time our cherished guests take to complement our inn and the staff. Thank you so very much!
The inn was built in 1994 as a10 room boutique hotel each with it's own bathroom, some with whirlpool tubs, room 9 and 10 have private balconies and there is a parlor and a lovely patio for guests to mingle. There are 4 stories and we have an elevator.
We hope to welcome you all back soon!

We stayed at the Mirabelle Inn over the long weekend celebrating Danish Days. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice. We treated ourselves to the Chef's Menu (a four course dinner paired with wine at each course) and it was outstanding (though a bit pricey, but we're worth it ;-) ). The complementary breakfasts we a delight as well. They had wine and hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon for the guests; as well as a nice selection of teas and cookies into the evening. It's within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants of Solvang. We'll be coming back probably during a less hectic weekend or weekdays stay.

Room Tip: The Inn's rooms are on the second and third floors, but they do have an elevator.
