The Landsby, a newly renovated 50-room boutique hotel, brings a unique hospitality offering to downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. The hotel 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 bright and welcoming guestrooms are 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.
All guests have access to the property’s redesigned outdoor garden lounge. This space provides an oasis for guests, where they 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 2,980 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 restaurant, is inspired by the local wine region of the California coast. The name Mad & Vin, which translates to “food and wine” in Danish, continues to play off of the hotel’s Scandinavian inspiration. Chef Beto Huizar has developed a specialized menu that focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients. The restaurant offers dinner in addition to daily breakfast. The bar’s lively atmosphere is the perfect place for patrons to gather and enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of locally produced wine.
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. For more information and reservations, visit www.thelandsby.com or call 805-688-3121.
