“Wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

We stayed here in October for a wedding that actually took place at the INN.
The building is beautiful and perfect for a small second wedding. The staircase is just right for the grand entrance!
The rooms were very nice. Breakfast was included .There is a snack bowl in each room but everything in it is a separate charge.
There are several restaurants within walking distant from the Inn.
I would stay here for small gathering again.

My husband and I stayed last weekend over New Year's with another couple. The room we stayed in was named the Quandary. Our room was very large with a king bed and an oversized chair. It had a flagstone gas fireplace, a desk and armoire with a TV. The lighting was very good. We liked the selection of light fixtures in the room. The decor has a touch of southwest feel but not overdone. The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub and shower. The use of flagstone throughout the building, including the rooms adds a remarkable touch to the charm of the Inn.
The staff was very friendly from making reservations to check in to check out. They were great at answering questions.
We liked the wine, cheese and crackers that were offered in the evening in the Great Room. The fire was going and the room was very warm and cozy. Breakfast was great with a fresh fruit bowl, waffles, sweet rolls, bagels, yogurt and cereal. A very nice Continental breakfast.
It is one block down from a terrific restaurant, Colterra.
We will definitely be back. This is a great find and only a short distance from Boulder.

Small but very chaming in the artsy town of Niwot. Adjacent to Boulder, CO about an hour north of Denver. Colorado lodge motiff and decor. Great rooms are nicely detailed, all recently updated. Staff is super and will take care of you personally. Several locally owned fare venues are within walking distance. Great for a corporate get away or if you are just traveling through. Very romantic if you have company. Lovely sitting / breakfast room with fireplace.

My wife stayed last weekend at the Niwot Inn, expecting nice, relaxed but what we discovered was extraordinary! We had the room with the enclosed steam sauna. The snow fell all weekend so we just read, had some delicious, healthy food, listened to extraordinary music on extraordinary surround sound also in the room. I can't say enough about the staff, their kindness and very natural way of relating. I had the massage for my sore back. Slept like a log that night. I can go on and on. I cannot say enough about the experience. I was a little nervous about leaving, going out into the world after a weekend of tranquility. The Niwot Inn has always been nice but the new owner has upgraded to a level I personally have never experienced, even in Santa Fe, our other favorite place. Go, treat yourself, and experience a new reality. I wish life could be this wonderfully gentle all the time!

My husband and I have a small business a couple of miles from the Niwot Inn and we spent a night there just to check it out and see if we could recommend it to our out of town business clients.

The Inn is on the Main Street, but this doesn't mean there is a lot of traffic or other activity to disturb one. It is in a lovely Victorian type building that has been tastefully renovated inside and out. There is a parking area behind the Inn and also parking on the street in front. The decor is elegant, modern Victorian - nothing fussy, but some of the old features kept. Some renovation work was being done on the ground floor, but this did not disturb us. As far as I could see the only change was that breakfast was served in the "Great Room" rather than in the separate Dining Room.

I called the Inn directly and got an AAA (or AARP) discount of 10%, so the the room was $134 before tax, instead of $149. Check-in was easy and friendly, and we were shown to our corner room upstairs that overlooked the street in front. It was a spacious room with queen bed, overstuffed armchair and ottoman, gas fireplace, desk and armoire containing the TV. Decent lighting beside the bed and behind the armchair. Large closet with iron and ironing board and removable wooden hangers. Vanity was outside the bathroom, which was fairly small, with shower over the bath and glass sliding shower doors. Soaps, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Towels looked good, but were a little too soft. Hairdryer attached to the wall (ugh). Overall decor was very soothing and elgant, almost minimalist.

We joined the innkeeper of the day and a couple of other guests in the Great Room before going out to dinner. A glass of wine and cheese and crackers were offered, and we probably could have had a second glass if we wished. Information about the area was in the hall, rather than in the room, which I would have preferred. The basement area contains an apartment available for rent, a conference room and a small exercise room with elliptical, bike and another price of equipment I don't remember. There was a TV, towels and water in the room.

We were given a key to let ourselves in that night as the Inn is closed around 10:00. Water and cookies were available if we wished them. The bed was very comfortable, although I could have used a second regular pillow. There were only two on the bed, plus two ornamental pillows. I looked but did not find any extra bedding in the room. Blinds kept out the streetlight very nicely.

Breakfast is served from 7:00 a.m. and we decided not to stay for it, but I checked out what was available. There was a selection of teas, coffee and juice, a couple of cereals with milk, or choice of individual yoghurt flavours. Several nice pastries etc. were on offer, as well as hard-boiled eggs. All very pleasant, but I think that a place like this should offer at least one cooked choice at breakfast - we can always dig out a cold breakfast from the fridge at home. Staying away should be more of a treat.

Wi-fi was available in the public areas, but I didn't check to see if it was in the room. The staff that we met were very efficient and friendly, and overall I would stay there again and certainly recommend The Niwot Inn to friends and business associates - as long as they didn't require a cooked breakfast!

We recently stayed at the Niwot Inn to be close to family during a difficult time. Laurie and the staff were so wonderful, welcoming and helpful to us all. I can't say enough about how beautiful the inn is and how much they went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Kind of a mix b/w a hotel and a b&b. A good alternative to to a sterile hotel, but not really a romantic place with character as the website would suggest. Very clean. Short drive from Boulder, where we couldn't find something not a chain. Decent breakfast for a continental breakfast, sweet dining room and very homey. Good bath products, great tub in one of the rooms. Cute little town. Friendly staff. I think the girl was in training who checked us in, so I will forgive her brevity!

  • Liked — clean, friendly, spacious, good internet access, great tub
  • Disliked — a little far from Boulder, a little sterile
