My husband our two kids and our dear corgi and I stayed at The Royal Copenhagen Inn for 3 nights in November 2012 and we're getting ready to return. It's quaint and clean. The beds could have been more comfortable but the location is great.Walking distance to shops and restaurants.It's not brand new it was as pictured. The service is friendly and kind. The continental breakfast has lovely pastries. What impressed us most was the enclosed Secret Garden where our dog could run unleashed. It really made our stay. In general Solvang is dog friendly. Many shops have water bowls outside and several offer dog biscuits. The pool was clean and the water was clear. They also have a life size chess and checker game in the pool area. This provided great bonding time for us as a family. Isn't that what family vacations are for?
