“Nice B&B Style Hotel in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Mirabelle Inn on February 9-10, 2013. We stayed in Room 10 which is a suite with a king size bed located on the hotel's top floor. The room was spacious & the bed comfortable. There is a small elevator (enough for 1 person + luggage) that goes to the floor below where Rooms 10 & 11 are located and guests can reach these rooms by using 4-5 steps. We saw other travelers' comments on TA before we booked Room 10 and we were pleased to find that the stairs posed no problems. May not be for everyone though. We were greeted upon arrival by Becca who was exceedingly pleasant & helpful during our stay. Breakfast is served in the hotel restaurant and consists of fruit & breads followed by an egg dish or abelskivers ... all very good and plenty to carry you over to lunch. The hotel's location on the east side of "downtown" Solvang made it convenient to walk to dozens of shops, restaurants and bakeries. There's a small parking area behind the hotel that is reserved for hotel guests and ample street parking in front of the hotel if the lot is full. The only minor drawbacks were that the bathroom was somewhat small for a "suite level" room, the bath towels are nearing the end of their useful life and there was a little street noise (not enough to interrupt our sleep) as our room faced 1st Street. We had dinner in the hotel's restaurant on our first night. The food was top notch (i.e. comparable to The Ballard Inn) with a very good (if not huge) wine list. We travel to the Santa Ynez Valley about once a year and we'll definitely stay here again.

My wife and I had a number of stressful experiences in the last two months with work, house, kids, etc. So, to detox I booked room nine at the Mirabelle. I know that we both will live longer. The reservations were handled personally as if we were the President of the U.S. When we arrived Becca treated us like we were visiting royalty. (Not to mention we parked for free right out front of the main door for the entire weekend.) We were demanding guests continuing to change our dinner reservations right to hours before the reservation time. All of our changes were treated as if we had tipped every one a hundred dollars each time. The room (you have to get room nine) with its balcony, hot tub for two, and working fireplace was perfect. The king bed was great. We couldn't have asked for better.

Room Tip: The Mirabelle Cafe is wonderful. Another great place is ROOT 246 just a block away. We walked the...

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...
