“As lovely and charming as we expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The property is very charming and quaint, just as described by the previous reviewers. We stayed in room 10, which was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was excellent on both days and the service was friendly. We would also recommend the restaurant for dinner. The food was superb and we enjoyed chatting with the chef at the end of the meal.

Two issues kept our stay from being a truly outstanding experience. First, the bathroom needs a complete overhaul. It's small and dilapidated, like an old cheap motel bathroom. The shower curtain liner was yellow and should have been replaced long ago. Everything else about the hotel was so lovely, that it made the bathroom appear even more neglected. Second, the air conditioning kept working all night, even though it's set to turn off automatically at night. No matter how much we played with it, cold air continued to blow into the room.

Still, we had an excellent experience at the Mirabelle Inn and would gladly return in the future.

We recently spent a night at this B&B. It was our second stay and definitely was an enjoyable place. It is located on a relatively quiet street within easy walking distance to the downtown tourist shopping area. The room was nicely decorated and very clean.. The afternoon Wine and Appetizer hour was very nice and the Breakfast was delicious.

Only issue I had was with the bed which was very firm and I did not get a good night's rest.

This ls a great B&B. The rooms are quaint and nicely decorated. Full size shower is perfect. The hot breakfast is both excellent and different with the chef's choice being wonderful both days. It was a little pricey but well with it if you take advantage of breakfast, complimentary tastings and various coupons for discounted tastings elsewhere. Highly recommend!

My mother and I recently stayed here for just one night, though I wished it had been longer! Brigette and her staff were so accommodating and there for any and all requests, and consistently checked to see if we needed anything. We had a very special wine tour of some terrific wineries which was facilitated by the "In House Wine Diva!" That would be Brigette, she is so knowledgeable of the region and wines. We truly just felt like we were part of the family while staying at Mirabelle Inn. The food in the restaurant was excellent and well prepared by their outstanding chef! I've traveled to many locations and stayed in several hotels and B & B's, and this by far, is one of the best places I've ever stayed! I'll be back to stay longer~ Don't miss this charming find! What great hospitality we encountered!!

I loved the Mirabelle Inn and hope to return for a longer stay. I stayed only one night with friends while on a quick business trip to the region and definitely recommend the Inn to anyone traveling to the Santa Barbara wine region. Brigitte and the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. The Inn was clean, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. The Inn is two blocks away from the main street so it was quiet but still very convenient to walk to all of the Solvang bakeries, shops and restaurants.

You must have dinner in the small but perfect dinning room. The food and service was outstanding. We are looking forward to our next visit. Make sure to ask them for advice regarding the local wineries. The rooms make you feel you are in the South of France without a 12 hour plane ride. The whole Inn has the feeling of Europe.

Room Tip: Close to shops and little places to eat.

We had a beautiful stay at the Mirabelle Inn. The room was very pretty and the bed comfortable. They left us out a bottle of champagne and glasses with a candle for our anniversary. The location was a short walk to the center of town so it was very close to everything and yet private. We enjoyed dinner downstairs and the next morning woke to an included breakfast of waffles, bacon, eggs, cereal, fruit, juices, tea and coffee. It was romantic and sweet. There was evan a guest playing his violin on the porch one afternoon. I would highly recommend this place.
