We stayed in a king loft room in early June and had a great stay. We were traveling with our dog, and this room was definitely large enough for the three of us. We enjoyed the continental breakfast, happy hour, in-room mini bar with a reasonably priced bottle of red wine, and the pretty grounds.
The one aspect of this hotel that keeps it from having five stars, is that it's a bit dated. The sink area in our room didn't seem to match the rest of the decor & the bathroom was tiny. A LOT of water ended up on the floor after a brief shower.
I was pretty disappointed by the dim & dirty outdoor hallway leading to our room. It made the hotel feel a bit cheap & less quaint. For the two nights we were there, there was a dryer sheet outside of our door and no one stopped to pick it up. We left it there as sort of a test, and sure enough housekeeping didn't bother.
Overall, we enjoyed the location of the hotel (with Sevtap Winery right next door & open late by Solvang standards). If we choose to return to this hotel in the future, we'll invest in a cottage room instead.
