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

Arrived in Boulder for just a one night stay which from arrival til we left the Briar Rise B and B was exceptional. The room was perfect, clean and quiet and all who work there are the nicest and most accommodating. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Firstly let me say that the service was very good here and the services and location are good hence my very good score. But unfortunately I did/do feel let down by this place. When I booked I was told parking was including - when I arrived parking is only available for 7 cars and surrounding streets are restricted parking so... More

The garden is stunning, the rooms are charming, and the staff is really friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is great - made to order with homemade granola and fresh baked goods every day. Ask them to show you the loose tea selection! I've stayed at the Briar Rose several times and never been disappointed.

The Briar Rose is a dreamy, beautiful, magical place surrounded with lovely gardens, fountains, delightful folks who work there and wonderful, beautiful rooms! The staff is so nice, so accommodating and helpful that it feels as if their entire focus is to make my stay as easy and fluid as possible. The breakfasts are fantastic, the place is decorated perfectly... More

The Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast was an awesome place to stay during the Bolder Boulder. They even made us breakfast to go since we would be leaving well before breakfast was served. The rooms are nice and comfortable, clean and quiet - despite a 21st birthday party down the street! The tea service they offer was more than I... More

Wow. First of all, the grounds are gorgeous. As soon as you step through the gate, you feel calmer. The staff had such a calming and relaxing presence- we felt at ease immediately. The room was gorgeous, clean and spacious. After walking around town, we returned to have a freshly brewed cup of tea (from a large selection) and watched... More

I loved my stay here! Everyone was welcoming and friendly and the rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were comfy. I thought the food was great and I loved being able to eat in the sun room. I will definitely recommend this place! I also thought the zendo was really well kept and peaceful.

I hope that when we return to Colorado we are able to stay at this beautiful little patch again. We had such an excellent experience with our hosts, cozy room, and delicious breakfast that we often find ourselves talking about it as a highlight of our trip. They are very sweet and calm individuals. There are healthy options for breakfast... More
