I LOVED the cottages! I would stay again, but only in the cottages as the ""regular hotel"" part doesn't look like anything spectacular. The cottages are like studios, dressed to look like you were in the woods/cabin style. Ours had a kitchenette, huge bathroom & hot tub on our private enclosed patio. The bed was devine!....super comfy. The garden is beautiful with a pond, walk over bridge & koi fish swimming around. Great location but could use a few more parking spaces for the size of the place.Perfect for walking the entire town of Solvang...close to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, park, and the mission.\r
You hae to try Paula's Pancake House...just down the street & The Bulldog Cafe also around the corner.\r
All in all, a lovely 3 night stay & I would definately stay again. I can only think of two complaints: the closet is VERY tiny & the ""gift basket"" left on the dining table is NOT FREE & the items are waaaaaay over priced! I figure for the price of the room, ($300 per night ave.) they should include the basket of sundries & nuts as a THANK YOU to their guest.
Pros: PRIVACY, CLOSE TO EVERYTHING
Cons: A LITTLE PRICEY
