So me and my husband took a tour of this castle, it was absolutely beautiful. Make sure you make reservations for the tour, we made ours several days in advance. This was such a beautiful castle, our guide was very knowledgeable and this is something definitely worth seeing if you will be in the area.

We took our niece to see this and fell in love with the place. We had an awesome tour guide, Phil, who was very knowledgeable. Our nephew is getting married in July and our wedding gift to them will be a one night's stay in a Premier Room. We highly recommend this place.

The castle is nice but the best part about it was the drive in. KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED! There were BigHorn sheep all over the rocks around the castle.

Absolutely worth the visit! We have seen plays here, eaten the Christmas Madrigal dinner several times, and seen interesting exhibits here. My wife and daughters have gone for tea. Every time is like going into a beautiful, secluded setting completely away from everything although it is just off Garden of the Gods road. The castle is a well-maintained beautiful building...

If you get the chance to enjoy tea at the castle, be sure to take it. And then tour the castle...or for the very fortunate, spend the night. The romantic story of how the castle came to be nestled into this beautiful location is worth the price of the tour.

I had to go here for a work thing but I absolutely loved it! It is possible to eat and stay the night but I walked around taking pictures. They do have some trails and roads to walk along. You can also take tours of the castle. This place is about 3 miles from I-20 off of the Garden of... More

I got a personal tour by colleagues who had years of history attending conferences in the castle. It was fun walking around and listening to their stories and viewing the decor. I would recommend stopping by if you had time and you were by the garden of the gods.

Most people don't know about this place. Right near Garden of the Gods on the prime real estate that the founder of the city (General Palmer) chose. Amazing craftsmanship. Take the tour, it's worth it if you like old buildings, history and of course, castles.

Wonderful stay and incredible program. The Christmas Madrigal was a full evening bookended with a couple nights in the castle at Glen Eyrie. The staff, food, rooms, and grounds were very inviting and suited our personal interests and preferences very well! Being involved in hospitality ourselves, we enjoyed a break from the action ourselves! The Navigators have done a great... More
