“Great 1st Anniversary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2005

My wife and I decided to stay at the Solvang Gardens Lodge after looking at various websites on the lodgings in Solvang. Their website doesn't mislead viewers like some do. It appeared to be the most like a B&B, which is what we like to stay in. It is not a B&B, but it is very quaint and has the feel of a B&B with it's cozy rooms, beautiful grounds and wonderful staff. It is not on the main road (Mission) which was nice (and much quieter), yet it was walking distance (2 blocks) to downtown. The staff was great. I dealt with Jolon and the owners, Paul and Diane, most of the time. Jolon was very helpful in setting up reservations for a wine tour and dinner. Paul and Diane are also on premises making sure everyone is taken care of and offering advice on things to do and places to go. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed with antique furnishings, new fixtures, and above average linens. At least the ones we saw were. They are still updating some I believe. It was a great 1st anniversary and we'll spend more there I'm sure.
