My husband and I stayed in the Miner's Shaft Suite, which wasn't out first choice, but we were pleasantly surprised. Lots of space, comfy king bed and a fireplace made it a comfortable stay. We liked the privacy of the downstairs suite and the private hot tub access. Our only complaints were that there was no view downstairs (obviously - this was no surprise) and the shower is very small.
No detail has been overlooked at the Inn: water pressure is good, blow dryer works great and the toilet paper is even soft! There's even a big basket of extras, including granola bars, toiletries, and a variety of other things
Emma's afternoon tea was the best, and we appreciated the recommendations from Emma and Niels- they really recommended great places downtown for our own personal preferences.
I found the food to be fantastic. I have to eat low-fat and I didn't find it all too difficult to do with Emma's breakfasts, although the cake and sweets in the afternoon were hard to resist! I really appreciated the big bowl of fresh fruit in the morning- delicious! I also drink tons of water and was pleasantly surprised that there is always an ice-cold pitcher of water out. Even the tap water tasted great!
The bus stop directly outside the Inn was great, too. We took the free bus twice to the slopes and it was an easy, quick trip both directions. (Times can be unreliable, so I suggest taking an earlier bus if you're in a hurry- we waited 15-20 minutes once after a bus didn't show up, but that's the most you'll have to wait, as they run every 20 mins.)
Overall, Abbett Placer Inn is a great place and we'll stay again if we make it back to Breckenridge!
