    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

    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

    We stayed in the Huron room which was nicely decorated but the bed in the room was extremely squeaky! This wasn't much fun as my husband and I were here celebrating our wedding/honeymoon night! We also had a problem with the loose toilet seat. We didn't feel we had much control as this was a Friday night and we didn't... More

    Lovely place, serene rooms, great breakfasts, friendly staff. There is the opportunity to interact with others but it is not required if you prefer privacy. The gardens and the freshly made tea were both lovely.

    We stayed for two nights during late May. We enjoyed our time - nicely kept grounds and house, friendly, extremely helpful staff, and awesome breakfast and snacks. Enjoyed breakfast conversations too! Will stay there again next time in Boulder.
