Reviewed 9 January 2018

The Landsby is an incredibly beautiful renovated property in a city that can feel a little cartoon-ish at times. The decor is amazing and feels fresh, young and contemporary.

There were a few minor issues that made for some major inconveniences during our short stay. We were traveling with a group of friends (4 total) sharing a double bed room. The temperature in the room was difficult to control. We adjusted the thermostat before we went to bed and woke up in the middle of the night to find it reset to a random temperature.

Since a hotel is where you primarily sleep, the bed should be as perfect as possible. One of our beds didn't have a fitted bottom sheet. It ended up coming off in the middle of the night with all the tossing and turning (with the thermostat reset) and we were sleeping on a bare mattress.

The bathroom became an issue as it had neither a window or a fan. This was a huge problem for anyone needing to really use the bathroom. We quickly resorted to using the bathroom in the lobby. Installing vent fans in the bathroom should be done immediately.

All in all a very pretty hotel. Would have been much better if I were traveling alone or with just my partner. These issues could probably have also been resolved if we were staying for longer than one night. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and surely would have addressed our issues (aside from the bathroom fans).

Room Tip: Ask if the bathroom has an operable window.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! Feedback like yours is always appreciated as it helps us to continually improve our guest services. First off, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed The Landsby's aesthetic and found our staff to be very accommodating. I sincerely apologize about the lack of a bathroom fan and your frustration with the thermostat. The rooms in our main hotel do not have bathroom fans, but many of our other rooms do, so we'd be more than happy to put you in one of those rooms if you choose to stay with us again next time you're in the area (which we hope you do!). Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions or concerns.

Kindly,
Barry P, General Manager

Stayed at this super cool hotel while attending a wedding at a nearby winery. I don't love the "Disneyland" town it is located in. However, I'd stay here and enjoy the surrounding wineries for sure. The hotel is super chic. Service at the bar was excellent. Check-in was not the best but hey, how long do you spend checking in? I recommend for sure!

Room Tip: I believe they are a pet friendly hotel. If you have allergies be sure to ask for a pet free room.

The Landsby has everything you need in a boutique hotel - great location in the center of town means you can walk to all the local bars and restaurants. Good size rooms with comfortable beds - L’Occitane products in the bathrooms- WiFi, of course. The restaurant, Mad & Vin, serves breakfast and dinner and lunch on weekends - full bar in the lobby and really good service. Definitely going back...

We loved our stay! We had a patio room, which faced an open shared space with chairs and fire pits. Perfect for enjoying a bottle of wine by the fire on a chilly night. The room was beautifully decorated and had cute adornments around the room that gave you that boutique feel. Customer service was top notch and our breakfast in the hotel's restaurant was terrific. Overall, a fabulous stay in a quaint little area. Highly recommended and we will be back!

Room Tip: Patio rooms have a little extra space on the outside, but it's shared. We were in Room #7, which...

Loved the decor and overall vibe of the hotel

The color's and furnishing's are excellent from the lobby, bar, restaurant, room's and the courtyard

The food at the restaurant was excellent although the espresso machine was broke and I can't live with out espresso especially after interrupted sleep !

We stayed in room 36 at the top of the stairs and the noise from the bar kept my wife and kids awake until midnight on both nights we stayed

I was woken up at 2am on both nights we stayed from a loud after party in the court yard

The staff tried to move us but they were booked, they acknowledged that they have people complain about the room's at the top of the stair's so they should look into solution's or bring it to the attention of guest's at check in so there is no surprise

We would 100% stay here again but would be more savvy about requesting a room away from the bar noise

Room Tip: If you want quiet request a room away from the bar and the courtyard
