We were in Boulder on business to go to a concert at the Boulder Theater. This B&B is close enough to walk to downtown in about 15 minutes. We stayed in the Cameron room with the balcony. The room was clean & cozy and since it was warm it was nice to have the balcony doors open and a sitting... More

I stayed at the very conveniently located Briar Rose for 1 night in early July. My room was very comfortable with a hall bathroom (but it was for my use only). The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star rating is because the manager did not offer to help me carry my bags up the stairs to... More

This place is very convenient to downtown Boulder, as it is a 3-4 min drive or a pleasant 10-15 min walk along interesting streets and shops and we walked on the paved well traveled trail by a stream to a festival downtown. They have off street parking, beautiful gardens and a great breakfast, including homemade delicious granola with fresh fruit... More

I had a lovely room with a fireplace, private bathroom and a spacious seating area. The only negative was a bit of light seeping into the room in the AM from a skylight over the bed. A 15 minute walk to the downtown restaurant/bar area wasn't an issue in good weather. Breakfast was fun with a nice discussion around the... More

My sister and I stayed for a few days at Briar Rose. We were taking her son back to the University nearby for his second year. The room was very clean and inviting. The entire staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. All the soaps, shampoos and such were all organic and lovely. We had a fireplace in our room,... More

You will not go wrong staying here at this lovely B&B. Accommodations are very comfortable and they think of many little details that make your stay special. Breakfast is fantastic and they have the most adorable pots of freshly brewed tea and cookies served all day long on trays with flowers and honey pots. Really, why stay at a large... More

Attended a weekend wedding, wife and I stayed at locale selected by bridal parents, along with 2 other couples. Rooms were large, airy, and well maintained; staff friendly and helpful. Food delicious, but, being an omnivore, breakfast meat was missed; that is my only "complaint."

I had a nice experience staying, as it was my first time in Boulder. The rooms were nice and breakfasts were prepared well and served by friendly people. I also really enjoyed the gardens and how close the location was to downtown. My only complaint is in regards to the staff: the gentleman who greeted me and checked me in... More

We're a Baby Boomer couple who like staying at B&Bs and inns whenever we travel, and staying at the Briar Rose was certainly a fun way to see a slice of Boulder. Handy location -- we walked into town for dinner, for example -- and we enjoyed the extensive yet still cosy garden, the tea service in the evening out... More
