“What a find!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I booked two nights at Castle Marne in late May this year as a break from chain hotels during a two week, five city trip, and I am so glad I took the break!

From arrival to departure the whole family offered me superb hospitality and friendly advice and conversation and I was made to feel very welcome indeed.

The room was comfortable, as well as beautifully presented and decorated like the rest of the hotel. Both my breakfasts were substantial, delicious and freshly cooked and served - a real personal touch.

More generally, the hotel is not far from transport links to downtown Denver and beyond, and only 20 minutes walk from the 16th St Mall - so a good base for getting around too.

I would definitely book again if I return to Denver- thanks for the warm welcome!

Thank you for joining us two nights out of your whirlwind trip across the US. We trust the rest of your trip was as pleasant as you say the Castle was. We appreciate guests from abroad sharing their thoughts with future TripAdvisor guests. It is always a pleasure to have an international crowd around the breakfast table. This morning we had two couples from Germany, a couple from Denmark, two folks from Ecuador, one from Argentina and one from Mexico. That's not counting the Americans here as well. The conversations were lively and interesting.

Having wonderful guests from around the world and just around the corner stay with is just another reason my family love what we do. Thank you for staying with us and thank you for sharing your experience with others.

Warmest Regards,
Melissa

I can't decide which I liked better: the lovingly restored beautiful old home, or the warm, welcoming, friendly family who run it. Castle Marne is a beautiful old property, restored and converted into a BnB. The rooms vary in size and amenity - I stayed in a tiny little room that might have been a bit squeezy for more than one, but it was perfect for me. Everything is clean and comfortable and has been put together beautifully. The breakfasts are delicious, and the afternoon teas are a wonderful idea; not only are there several varieties of tea, but the hosts prepare gorgeous little slivers of shortbread (which I was informed are called 'petticoat tails' when cut into thin triangles!) and petit fours. The hosts are friendly and welcoming, and encourage just enough conversation and mixing between their guests, but without being overwhelming. The neighbourhood is lovely and there are some great dining options nearby. You're not far from downtown, via bus or cab (or even a walk). This was a great place to stay in Denver!

Room Tip: It depends on how luxurious you feel - ask for a larger room if you feel you need more space, and so...

What a lovely review of your stay with us here at Castle Marne Bed & Breakfast. Our family loves sharing our "Castle" with folks from all over the world. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned in your review, the Castle Marne is run by a family. There are 3 generations of us here, each quick to share some history of the inn or make dining recommendations. We love what we do and love our neighborhood. We are very fortunate to be so conveniently located near so many great restaurants and exciting things to do.

We are also pleased you enjoyed the shortbread petticoat tails. We make everything fresh and from scratch. Keep our cookbook in mind if you want to give someone a great gift. Let us know you want one and we'll ship it right off to you.

On behalf of the whole "fam damily", come back and see us again soon.

Warmest REgards,
Melissa

My cousin suggested the Castle Marne for our one night stay in Denver. We'd hoped to do some sight seeing, but stayed longer in Colorado Springs, so arrived just in time for check-in. The inn-keepers guided us to their home via my cell phone and gave us a tour when we arrived. The afternoon tea was delightful, and enabled us to meet other guests. Our bed was wonderfully comfortable and I enjoyed the hot tub on the deck, though next time I'd choose a larger room. (If we return to Denver, we WOULD stay at Castle Marne.) The breakfast was top notch, so healthy. Everyone, the families who own and run Castle Marne and the friends who work there were welcoming, friendly, and so helpful. The house is a treasure. We found good restaurants within walking distance. Yes, do stay at Castle Marne.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us your last night in Colorado. We are pleased you enjoyed everything. Isn't that hot tub wonderful? What a treat to sit under the stars in your private hot tub on your private balcony and let the hot water and bubbles relax you after a busy day of sightseeing.

Please remember that you are always welcome back at Castle Marne Bed & Breakfast. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Our stay overall was good. the service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. The food at breakfast was very good and the portions were very filling. We stayed in the smallest room and the bed was squeaky and uncomfortable. The shower was tiny, but that matches the whole room. I would recommend the place overall, but not that room!

Chose this B&B as it was highly rated and prefer B&B's to generic hotels. We had one night on our way back to the airport after a weeks vacation in the mountains. We were delighted. Innkeepers could not have been more accommodating and the Castle Marne was lovely. There is no reason to stay in a cold hotel room when you have a lovely warm inviting house in which to stay! Excellent dinner was within walking distance, lovely neighborhood.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Melissa room as it was a quick stay. The room was very small but very reasonably p...

You are so right about chain hotel rooms, they can be generic and impersonal. We appreciate that the Castle Marne Bed & Breakfast is not for everyone, so we are always pleased when folks like you choose us. It is our goal to welcome you into our home as guests and have you leave as friends. Please come back and see us again.

My husband and stayed at Castle Marne this week. We arrived in time for the afternoon tea. We were greeted by Louie, a very polite and helpful teenager. We met members of the family who own and run the bed and breakfast, they had a lot of information about the history of the Castle. We met many fellow travellers from several countries and some from down the street. The breakfast was delicicous and homecooked. They even had cookies and sleepytime tea before bed.

Room Tip: The Van Cise Room has a hot tub.

What a lovely review. Thank you for sharing your experience of our B&B with other TripAdvisor guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It takes the whole family to make this Castle work. Louie J. and his brother and sister are the 3rd generation of this family affair. They have grown up in the business and have gracious hospitality running through their veins. Speaking as the mom and the boss, I appreciate hearing when one of my staff makes a great impression on our guests. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay.

We look forward to seeing you the next time you are passing through Denver again.

Have a wonderful summer.

Castle Marne was an excellent venue for our Bridal Tea. We had a guest list of 14. My son's bride was happy, the food was delicious, and the family staff fantastic. We also got a tour of the B&B along with a history lesson! Great choice! I recommend this venue for any celebration!
