The Landsby

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I booked a patio room and upon arrival was given a key to a room on the second level. I didn't think much of it and assumed maybe it had a balcony or was connected to the upper garden area. My room had neither a patio nor a balcony. I went back down to the front desk and she claimed to not have a patio room available and asked the cleaning lady when one would become available on the her radio. She spoke Spanish on the radio, however I am also fluent and understood that the cleaning lady was just finishing vacuuming room 3. Instead, I waited and was given keys to a different room. My room was situated on the end/corner. I felt like I was in a basement. I had zero view (a large privacy fence) without turning sideways and standing right next to the window. There was also a small window up close to the ceiling on the other wall, however I couldn't see out of that one with it being so high. The room is nice upon first glance. It does have a 'homey' feel to it, however the floors were very dirty and dusty. There was hair and garbage under my vanity that did not come from me. The bathtub floor also needed a good bleaching. I wore flip-flops when I showered. The one thing that also rubbed me the wrong way was that there were price tags/penalty fees on multiple items in the room that the hotel would charge if used or removed. I would perhaps give them another try if nothing else around was available, but for the amount of money paid, I would have expected a better experience.

We spent Christmas there in 2015 after my husband passed away and I brought all the family down to be together and grieve and heal. We booked about 10 rooms. This time I brought my mom to visit and pray at all the mission churches in the area.

Bathroom was terribly smelly & construction noise was annoying. Management was very helpful securing a cleaner & quieter room. Very much appreciated for the cheerful service.

The hotel itself is nice. Stylish/spacious rooms, cool vibe. Generally quiet. We were surprised smoking was allowed in the courtyard directly outside of our room. The bathroom needs updating. The restaurant, Mad and Vin: Great food. Cool decor. Nice but very inexperienced staff. The outside patio is adjacent to a construction zone. My wife and I needed a snack when we arrived at the hotel, and we were seated on the patio without anyone mentioning the construction. Once we sat down, we noticed everything was covered with an inch of red dust (no exaggeration). We mentioned this to the host, who then wiped down the table (our shoes and clothes were covered by the dust, in any case). For dinner, a few hours later, the tables had been wiped down at least and the server was experienced. For brunch the next day, we were once again seated outside (we have 2 support dogs), only to find the construction zone was active. We asked to be moved inside and the staff complied. Once we were inside, we found the food to be lovely, but again, the service to be very slow and inexperienced. Each meal we had (three plus a desert), took much longer than it should have and didn't come with the customary touches that a mid level restaurant should employ.

Hotel is in a nice location in the town of Solvang. Wonderful Happy Hour and beautifully designed. The down side is our adjoining door to our neighbor's has no sound proofing and we could hear everything. Unfortunately they were arguing early in the morning which woke us up.

Our room was clean and comfortable, although the bed was a little too soft for our tastes. Unfortunately, during the one evening and following morning of our stay there were screaming kids running up and down the hall! Then the morning of our departure the elevator broke down, so us old gray-haired folks had to lug our bags down the stairs to the lobby. But a nice young man did help us carry our bags to the parking garage from there. All in all, a pretty average (or slightly below average) hotel experience. I think we will be looking elsewhere on our next trip to Solvang.

Newly renovated. We liked the decoration and furniture. Very classy and pleasing to the eye.

We stayed at the Landsby for a week while exploring this portion of California wine country. Solvang is a bit kitchy, but the Landsby is an oasis right in the heart of town. Its sleek, contemporary Danish design is very thoughtful, with small touches of extra comfort throughout. Our room was wonderful. Large and inviting with biggest TV (50 or 55") I've ever seen in a hotel room. My two single complaints are that you cannot open the windows, and there were not separate controls for the two bedside lights as they were controlled on the same dimmer switch. The staff is excellent. Anything we needed was taken care of immediately. And the restaurant Mad & Vin does the best Happy Hour. Excellent food for great prices. I think we went three times. If you're heading to this part of California, I highly recommend the Landsby.

Every aspect of the hotel was wonderful. Décor, food, service, parking, location.

Cozy and relaxing. I enjoy the Santa Ynez style decor throughout the property.

It was a great hotel and very good location. We enjoyed the service very much. I think the staff is awesome, they were very helpful with all requests that we made.

The hotel has the feel of a European inn. The staff is friendly and attentive. The décor and rooms are quaint. The beds were only moderately comfortable and the breakfast was sparse. Never the less, the hotel is ideally located for touring Solvang and provides a great "home base" location for a Santa Ynez Valley wine country tours.

The staff. the room, parking availability, and being within walking distance of everything in Solvang made it a wonderful experience. Also did a little wine tasting which was a lot of fun.

Nice and cozy hotel with good amenities. Excellent staff attention.

I was comfortable and fully enjoyed my stay at the Peterson Village Inn.

Definitely on our list as the place to stay in Solvang. We had a queen courtyard view room that was very large. It's an older hotel, so no in-room coffee maker but 24-hour staff will bring you whatever you need. Pleasantly surprised to find out our stay included breakfast and two complimentary wine tastings at L&L. Great spot to start our wine tasting weekend.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Peterson Village inn. The hotel staff were very accommodating, even helping us find places to hike in the area. The room was spacious and very comfortable, and the location in the center of town couldn't have been better. The continental breakfast, included with our room, was excellent - healthy fruit, granola and yogurt, as well as decadent Danish pastries from a local bakery.

Check in was timely. Room was clean. Middle of all the action.

I realize Solvang has a historical quality to it and I appreciate that the hotel sticks to the theme but it really needs a re-fresh. The wallpaper went EVERYWHERE...even in the closet. The pull-out couch has seen better days...it sunk in the middle. And really...why a bed you need a ladder to get in?? On the plus side, I thought the bedding (comforter & sheets) was very comfortable and people were nice. Free breakfast is always welcome! Nice soaps etc.

The Petersen Village Inn was truly amazing in every way from the moment you enter. From the small touches such as having a staff member escort you to your room to show you how everything works to having nice touches like fruit infused water and coffee available for guests. The only challenge was that there is no ice machine available and although staff would gladly bring up ice, coffee or tea 24 hours a day. We tried calling around midnight to get ice but were unsuccessful. It would be nice for them to find a place to put a small ice machine for self-serve.

Hi Lindsey, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your recent stay at The Landsby. Enhancing our facility and customer experience is of utmost importance to us, clearly we did not provide you with the service we pride ourselves with. I undoubtedly empathize with your points, especially your room mix up and front desk experience. End of summer is a busy time for The Landsby, but your room certainly should have been prepared correctly and more presentably. Being in the town center provides our guests with a walking distance advantage, but this unfortunately also limits the amount of rooms with expansive views. Your feedback has certainly been addressed with our front desk, booking associates, and housekeeping staff. Please do not hesitate in contacting me directly if you have any further questions or concerns. Regretfully, an apology will not alter your first impression, however, I hope you choose to stay with us again next time you are in the area so we can make it up to you. - Barry P, General Manager
