The property is beautiful and tranquil. Love having breakfast and drinks in the evening at the patio with the most amazing views of Santa Barbara. Our room was far from the lobby so there was a lot of walking but we didn't mind it. The room and bathroom was very spacious.

Great view. Great service. Great food. Great room. Can't say enough about this place. Definitely will stay again! Staff was very friendly and well trained. Made you feel at home. Grounds were spectacularly beautiful. Room was spacious and well appointed. Internet reception on Wu-Di was excellent given the expansive grounds. If you go to Santa Barbara consider staying here

Very close to Santa Barbara Center, but still out in the green. Beautiful set up of the cottages in a amazing garden. A dream of a hotel. Just the Food could be better, as well as part of the Service. I write part of the service, because some of the people are incredible nice and professional and some are... rather the opposite. The location, the rooms, the garden that's already a must to be seen!

We received the best service ever by Emmy at the restaurant. He is experienced, professional, personal, and so attentive to all of our needs and going far beyond our preset expectations. Absolutely amazing.
