My husband and I stayed here one night in early October, and really enjoyed our stay. The property is a beautiful building, and the rooms are very nicely decorated. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The bottle of wine in our room on arrival was much appreciated! The location couldn't be better-- right in the middle of the cute part of town, nothing is more than a few minutes walking, but the BnB is also positioned slightly outside the very center of the town, and was very quiet.
Lovely place, but I think $200/night at most for this place. Even that seems steep for the place and the town, and I paid over $300/night. Very nice staff though. I would go back if I had the bank account to support it.
My husband and I were recently in Solvang for a wedding and we ABSOLUTELY loved the Mirabelle! Super convenient to town, very walkable. Our room was perfectly clean. We loved just being able to walk downstairs for a free (and delicious!) breakfast and coffee every morning! If I ever find myself in Solvang again, we will DEFINITELY stay there!
Everything was outstanding. It was our first trip to Solvang and plan on returning soon. The Mirabelle was perfect from the location,the staff, food, rooms everything. I could not have asked for anything better.
Our time could not have been better! From the warm welcome when we entered, to the beautifully appointed guest room, to the Michelin-starred dinner at their restaurant, First & Oak, Mirabelle Inn set the ultimate standard of exceptional lodging and dining. Walking distance to everything in Solvang and easy access to the surrounding wineries, vineyards and other little towns. It's a much easier drive from LA for a weekend wine country get-away. We will definitely stay (& dine!) here next time!
I stumbled on this gem of a B&B when my husband and I were looking for a quick and last minute getaway with our 4 month old. We wanted a place that was clean (to my picky standard) and near walking distance the main streets of Solvang (to avoid noise). It met all of our standards and then some! We bought the packaged deal, which included a 4 course dinner for two. The dinner was amazing and we made friends with other tourists, too! Because the place has only 12 rooms it made it very quaint and not at all crowded. The staff was amazing and very accommodating to our little family; the staff (Thomas, especially) made sure our room had enough water to keep us hydrated and comfortable with our little one. Thank you for a taking care of us while we vacationed in Solvang!
This was our third time staying at Mirabelle Inn and we wouldn't even consider another place to stay! Wonderful staff, amazing food, and perfect location! What more could you ask for in Solvang!
My husband and I have never been to Solvang before. When I did some research online, I fell in love with this darling place. We weren't sure sure if our expectations would be met upon arrival, but we were not disappointed. We would definitely stay here again. We loved the location, friendly and accommodating staff, classy dining experience and overall homey feel.
The Cheshire Cat Inn property and staff are lovely and welcoming. I would stay there again anytime and hope to return. Very friendly, cozy and delicious food made our stay at this location wonderful.
My Husband & I had an enjoyable stay. The B&B is very charming from the moment you walk in. We were happily surprised when they upgraded our room for free. The rooms are very clean & nicely remodeled. The staff was professional & accommodating. We liked being off the main road as well. The B&B sits in a nice neighborhood. The breakfast was included & very good. I liked that they served something different each day during our stay. We were there for 3 nights. I would definitely recommend staying here.
we were welcomed as we walked in the door....check in was a breeze....our room was on the 3rd floor....beautiful and spacious with large windows and a view of the hills. Quiet and comfortable with a fireplace and robes and nice products. The breakfast was served from 8-10am in the breakfast room off the lobby. Service was great...quick and friendly. Waffles and eggs and coffee...all very very good. We will return! The dinner restaurant looks tasty and has good reviews....next time...
The staff, accommodations, service, and food is unbeatable. Absolutely the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in anywhere, except mine. When you eat in the restaurant try the Lobster Bisque ... outstanding!! We have stayed here 3 years running and already have our reservations for next year.
Food was really fantastic, for both dinner and breakfast. We were upgraded to a bigger/better room when we arrived, without even asking, since space was available. Small bites for dinner with everything is prepared and presented very nicely. Breakfast more than filled us up and was delicious -- best waffles and pancakes we've ever had at a B&B. Staff was also very courteous and friendly. We'd definitely stay here again!
We spent two nights in room 1 on the ground floor (handicapped accessible). The room was nice though small, but had only one chair to sit in. The view was non-existent, blocked by an arbor-like screen just outside the window (this was probably necessary, because otherwise you would see nothing but the parking lot.). Breakfast was simply outstanding. Fresh juice, fruit and exquisite pastries. Had waffles with more fruit one day and oatmeal the next, both excellent. Front desk staff was excellent. Very quiet.
Solvang is such a fun city at Christmas time and this was our second Christmas spent at the Mirabelle Inn. Both times in Room 6. The Inn has been purchased and remodeled since our first visit and we were quite impressed with the changes. Beautiful trendy decor instead of the previous country theme. We had a fabulous "Eve" dinner at the onsite restaurant, First & Oak. Room 6 is especially nice with a king bed, large bathroom with a huge Jacuzzi tub and a little patio overlooking the front. We may try one of the rooms on the rear next time because the street noise was a little much due to the holiday tourists. The breakfast was absolutely amazing! Beautiful room, excellent service and the food was scrumptious. Full breakfast as well as scones/sweet rolls, fruit and granola if you preferred. We'll be back!!!!
Very professional staff, great breakfast! The complimentary wine and complimentary tasting at a nearby winery was also appreciated. If I were to observe any flaw, my only comment would be that as I walked into my room, the WiFi signal dropped from 2-bars to 1-bar and then to zero. I doubt this pertains to all rooms, and a nearby lounge outside our room had good WiFi reception.
From its quiet location just a block from the "action" but without the street and pedestrian noise, to its beautiful design and attention to detail, to its lovely breakfasts and its marvelous and truly exemplary staff, this is a real treat. It's not without some flaws -- the interior noise is a little overwhelming starting around 7 a.m. (toilets flushing, feet pounding, doors shutting, water flowing), and the small room we were staying in had no closet and no storage area. Also, the plantation shutters didn't close all the way, which was problematic when the sun rose. On the positive side: a beautiful soaking tub, a comfortable bed, a fireplace (gas, but potent enough to heat the room), and genuinely impressive service. All in all, despite the few flaws, this is certainly a beautiful stay worth considering on a trip to Solvang or a journey up the California coast!
We stayed here just one night for my birthday. We stayed in the same room a few years ago. New owners have upgraded the property and it is beautiful. The restaurant is excellent, though pricey. Not a place to go with a big appetite and a budget, but interesting presentation and very tasty.
Hands down the greatest place to stay in Solvang... if your motivation is to "wow" your wife ;) Cozy, quaint, incredibly clean, tastefully decorated. The Mirabelle is the perfect little hotel to have as a home base while exploring the greater Santa Ynez Valley. The design and the level of service practically transports you to another time and place. There were several moments when we were convinced we were staying in a countryside inn, somewhere in Denmark or France. Thank god everyone speaks English here! Warning: this place is so comfortably enjoyable, you might skip the exploration and snuggle down with your loved one for your entire stay ;) plan some extra time when staying here.... In fact, if your goal in coming to SY is to discover great wines, the Mirabelle is also associated with Coquelicot (Ko Klee Ko) Wines, grown and made only minutes from the Inn and a top notch tasting room in Los Olivos. We had a lot of great wine on this trip, but their wines knocked our socks off. These guys are doing EVERYTHING right!!! A special thanks the GM Charlie, to the concierge Suzy, to all the gracious staff, and our amazing server Chris from First & Oak (amazing restaurant associated with the Mirabelle, I will yelp our great experience also) - and a very special thanks to Alyson for recommending this place ;)
We choose room 10 and 11 for our family of 4. Room 11 has AC unit that malfunctioned and was fixed immediately. Rooms were initially NOT setup properly upon our check in, but upon my comments were fixed appropriately.
