“Comfortable lodging with large room with fireplace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

We stayed here based on recommendation of a friend & were not disappointed. The room is clean, comfortable & spacious. Nice to have a full breakfast on the property. We ate at the restaurant the first night & enjoyed the food immensely. Convenient to the central part of Solvang. Agree with another reviewer of the property - wanted to read at night, but the lighting was poor. Enjoyed the fireplace. Staff were very friendly & helpful.

Stayed here in January 2012 and had a very nice one-night stay for a wine tasting trip. We chose a room with a king bed and spa. The spa section of the room had its own flat screen and fireplace. And don't worry, there is a full bath/shower around the corner in the bathroom as well.

The hotel may not be the very closest to Copenhagen Dr, but we're talking a difference of 2-3 minutes' walking. It's still very close, and there was this super popular breakfast place just one block away that we never ate at because the line was so long.

Solvang is a great, centrally located place for the wine tasting in the area, whether in Lompoc, Buellton, (solvang), or Los Olivos.

Based on the reviews, this hotel was one of 2 options with luxury amenities, and it did not disappoint. Will have to write a comparison if we ever stay at the other.

Room Tip: We loved our room with a spa tub!

In January, we spent three days exploring the California central coast wine country. It was a perfect time go since it was sunny, mild, and uncrowded. We tasted some world class wines. After good days of wine paradise we relaxed at Hadsten House and explored Solvang.
Everything at Hadsten House was clean, spacious and comfortable. The room was nicely decorated and comfy. Just beware that the walls are a bit thin. Also, the lighting in the rooms is dim. The bedside lamps have black lampshades. It's fine unless, like my husband, you want to read.
The breakfast was delicious hot food and fresh fruit, but again, the lighting in the dining room was strange- dim with can lights that seemed like spotlights in areas. They could use a lighting designer. Other than that the inn was nice and we had a great time in Solvang. What a charming town! And Hadsten House is in the middle of it. Loved that!

After many years living in Denmark, my husband surprised me with a weekend in Solvang. Hadsten House has lovely and fairly big rooms, clean and absolutely new bathrooms, the breakfast was decent, although a little on the cheap side. It is located close to all what is there to see in this small Danish city.
We used the Spa and had massage, which was heavenly.
My only real complain is that we had neighbours who carried on drinking both nights after their dinner and wine tasting, which was loud and well, from our point of view pretty unromantic.
I think this place is rather for friends to go on a weekend of wine and fun, than for couples.

Room Tip: We had room 228, which was away from the traffic. But close to a suit, which was the place for parti...

This was my first stay at the Hadsten House and I am super impressed. For starters, it's by far the nicest hotel in Solvang. It's been completely renovated so it feels brand new, and the decor is beautiful. The dining room is gorgeous! Also, the location is super convenient and close to everything. We were taken care of very well and I will definetly be going back. This is the only hotel I will stay with. (Special thanks to Trent for taking extra special care of us) You guys are awesome!

While it is a motel dressed up as a hotel, the Hadsten House was very well appointed. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. We stayed there midweek in early January and it was very quiet.The restaurant dinner was terrific and the complimentary breakfast was better than I expected. I will stay there again and I recommend it to others as a great value for the money.

We stayed at Hadsten House again between Christmas and New Years this year. Besides being an affordable price, it is a great location at the beginning of the main road into Solvang. It is a great base from which to visit all the wineries in the area. We had clean and quiet rooms, complimentry breakfast and we have eaten in their dining room in past years and it was all good. Yes, kids are in the pool during mid day but the indoor pool was empty for an early morning swim. (NOW THE BEST PART) When you check in, be sure to get their sheet listing complimentry wine tastings at about a dozen wineries. Now days tastings add up with the charges if you do not join the different wine clubs. The wineries listed are all good and the wineries are OK when you pull out the Hadsten House sheet. Don't pass up the wineries in Lompoc just because they are in an industrial-type area. The Palmina, Flying Goat, and Jalama have great wines and nice people. The tasting rooms in Los Olivos are also great and you can walk from shop to shop. One other tip.. the California Highway Patrol keeps their eyes on the people trying to drive the winding roads after tasting wine...

Room Tip: we had great rooms on the first floor in the back
