Met friends for dinner the Thursday night before New Years Eve at this relatively new spot in the Santa Ynez Valley. The restaurant staff was mostly quite friendly - save for a very unfriendly waitress in the bar area -- which is where a party must stand while waiting to be seated. Was made to feel like we were in...

Did not stay at this hotel, but my wife and I dined at the restaurant here called "Mad & Vin" and it was excellent. Amazing food and superb service made it a fantastic evening. We do want to stay here on our next visit.

We rented out most of The Landsby for our wedding last year and revisited the property to celebrate our anniversary. The place feels like home and the staff couldn't be nicer. We enjoyed the room and the location is perfect. In the evening they had a musician in the lobby playing guitar and we ended up spending most of the...

We stayed here for 3 nights during our drive up the coast and loved it. The rooms are very large, extremely clean, and very comfortable. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly especially at their Mad & Vin restaurant. We called ahead to see if they could make a vegan meal and the Chef was more than happy to oblige...

My family and I stayed at the Landsby on two different occasions in October 2016. The first stay was much better than the second mostly because we were able to secure a room with two queen beds. The rooms are nice, the best in Solvang, but the prices are a bit high for what you get. First off, they are...

We went on a weekend trip to discover this Danish version of a village. Did not find the bakeries up to standard of what we get at home, but enjoyed our stay - the beautiful surroundings and the hotel. Loved the clean lines and warmly decorated rooms. Really cozy atmosphere in the bar. Perfect central location. Danish design style mixed...

Spent only one night, but really enjoyed it. This place has a modern and spacious feel, with a restful, neutral color scheme. I appreciated the comfortable bed and the bath products by L'Occitane. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel also has a great location, right in the center of town. Would stay there again.

Didn't stay there as we are locals.....just great location for happy hour. Only problem was the server dropped the wine glass on our table, wine went everywhere (including some on us, fortunately white), glass dropped to the floor and broke in many pieces. A real mess and we switched tables. So it was a shame that they didn't realize this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Landsby, a newly renovated 41-room boutique hotel, brings a unique hospitality offering to Solvang. Located in downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the property combines a bright contemporary design with Scandinavian elements inspired by the town's Danish roots. The Landsby, which means "the village" in Danish, offers an authentic hospitality experience to both visitors and locals. Designed by Santa Monica-based design firm, Studio Collective, the hotel incorporates a Scandinavian lodge aesthetic with a design nod to the past. The hotel lobby has been completely reconstructed to add relaxed lounge spaces and a new bar. The bar's lively atmosphere will be the perfect place for patrons to gather and enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of locally-produced wine. The bright and welcoming guestrooms, including several junior suites and our signature tower suite, is finished with blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, genuine leather accents and sophisticated, yet comfortable, handcrafted furnishings. The rooms feature whimsical artwork commissioned by a regional artist and thoughtful accessories, which work together to create a residential ambiance. Standard room rates start at $225 and suites start at $329. All guests will have access to the property's redesigned outdoor garden lounge. This new space will prove an oasis for guests can relax and unwind among lush landscaping and romantically lit trees. Additionally, the property serves as an ideal retreat for meetings, with multiple meeting venues offering a total of 2980 square feet. The property also provides full-service amenities, catered meals from the restaurant, as well as access to courtyard and garden areas that can be used for breaks. Mad & Vin, the hotel's highly anticipated restaurant, is inspired by the local wine region of the California coast. The name of the restaurant, which translates to "food and wine" in Danish, continues to play off of the hotel's Scandinavian inspiration. Executive Chef Seth Nathan will develop a specialized menu that captures flavors from around the world and incorporates them into foods native to the area. The restaurant offers dinner seven days a week in addition to daily breakfast. A complimentary breakfast will be included for all hotel guests. Located 35 miles northeast of Santa Barbara, The Landsby is centrally located in downtown Solvang and steps away from boutique shops, bakeries, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, wine-tasting rooms, and restaurants. ... more   less
