We have come to Briar Rose several times and stayed in five different rooms. We love them all! I recently returned from staying there for a week. Usually after a week away I am ready to get back home, but at the Briar Rose you feel like you are at home, not at a hotel, so I was sad to... More

From the minute we arrived, each member of the staff provided information about things to do, including things we would never have known about. The breakfasts were nourishing and plentiful and very healthy. The ambience was peaceful, beautiful and every detail had been attended to. Particularly nice were the daily baked goods with coffee and tea available. We stayed three... More

Briar Rose was a lovely little place Close to everything. Staff was very open and helpful, and all types of people stopped by as if it was a Family home . Food was very good, and they were very accomodating when we did not care for french toast. They made us a veggie scramble

Our room was small, but adequate. We loved sitting in the garden area, and had access from our room to go outside without going through the house. Breakfast was very good, and they were friendly and willing to meet every need. They had snacks available 24 hours. They have an excellent tea collection. It is in walking distance of some... More

We love Boulder and loved this inn found on trip advisor and bandb site. you can easily walk to downtown Bouler but the rooms and gardens here feel like a retreat. There is a meditaiton room on premises and I would have attended the weekly programs there if matched my visit days. The property is fenced and you still feel... More

We stayed one night and were happy to be out. The guy who checked us in was friendly and helpful, but all other interactions with staff were disappointing, as they were either disinterested or borderline hostile. They make a big deal of their huge array of teas, but don't try to make a cup for yourself at 9:15 pm because... More

Thank you for your honest comments, any experience a guest has helps us improve our service. If one searches hotel prices in Boulder one will find that our B&B is competitively priced at or below the average hotel in the area. We are located in the heart of the city so parking is limited and at a premium like in... More

My husband and I stayed at the Briar Rose B&B for 2 nights at the beginning of our CO trip. To say it was perfect is an understatement!! It has an adorable atmosphere...they focus on all-natural like most of Boulder and also house a Zen studio on-site. We stayed in the Blanca room and loved it. The breakfast is delicious,... More

After repeatedly trying to book a room with this lovely B&B, I finally had an opportunity to do so this summer. It's a storybook brick house with the most peaceful energy! From the absolutely gorgeous grounds (imagine English cottage garden), to the uber comfortable guest rooms, you'll feel right at home and rested in every space. I am a tea... More

This place was such a wonderful find! The house is a beautiful home, with antique furniture, high ceilings, and beautifully decorated spaces. It has great character, and is very homey. The rooms have comfy beds and nice bathrooms. The ambience is warm and inviting, from the minute one walks through the front door. Most of all, the staff doesn't seem... More

Some things were outstanding and other things just sort of "ok". Pros: The tea service was great. I wish I had more time to take advantage of it. The daily baked breads were delicious and a real treat everyday. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great for walking to places. I adored the soaps in the shower...great... More

Thank you very much for your review and critique. We are constantly looking to improve customer experience and all of your points are a perfect checklist of what to improve. Due to being nestled in an 1880s Victorian home we don't always have space in each room to store the additional pillows/bedding but we are always happy to oblige when... More
