“Beautiful place with a fantastic breakfast.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The building is gorgeous and inviting. The rooms are spacious but cozy, and provide more than the comforts of home. The hot tub is an added bonus even in a town known for hot springs its nice to have a closer option. The breakfast is fantastic, and the proprietors are friendly and helpful.

We go to Ouray every summer to hike and see friends, but we decided to come in the fall this year for a romantic getaway. We would not normally stay in a B&B because we like to bring our dog, but this was a 'trip before baby comes' so we decided to indulge ourselves a bit more.
Oh my- I am so glad we did. The house is lovely, the rooms are spotless and well maintained, and the beds are comfy. However, the real high point is the breakfast and the inn-keepers themselves.
I honestly think Ingrid and Hans were "born" to run a bed and breakfast. They are just to welcoming and inviting, and they are really interesting to listen to when you get the chance to talk at breakfast. (Don't be shy- get Hans talking!)
However, the breakfasts themselves are delightful. In my current condition- breakfast has become ridiculously important and I was so impressed and grateful for the food. The muffins Ingrid makes are...exceptional. She should sell them separately they are so good! And there is a mixture of eggs, meats, breads, and a huge fruit salad. All of it is high quality, fresh, and hard to stop eating.
The porches are so pretty; I was able to sit and read for several hours while my husband hiked. I was totally relaxed during our stay and would definitely go again if we decide to leave the dog at home again. Have fun!

What a surprise, beyond pleasant! Our two-night stay was comfortable, elegant, convenient, and all the good things that a B and B should be. Ample breakfasts gave us the power to get up and go all day. Book-filled nooks, fireplaces, classy furnishings and the hot tub made us actually happy to return at the end of a mountain-loving day. Hans and Ingrid demonstrated warmth, humor, great cooking and hosting skills, and knowledge of the area. Don't hesitate to make reservations.

Room Tip: The Sovereign of the Sea has a fireplace and big tv with dvd.

We stayed three nights at the China Clipper Inn and highly recommend it. We spent our days hiking in those beautiful Colorado mountains, so we really enjoyed the hearty breakfasts before setting out each day and the soothing hot tub after returning. Hans and Ingrid were lovely hosts -- helpful and friendly. The China Clipper Inn provides both privacy and company. Loved it.

Yes, the inn was most convenient to downtown Ouray. Yes, the room was very nice. Yes, the breakfast both mornings was delicious. But, rarely do you find such a warm, hospitable welcome and stay at a bed and breakfast as found at the China Clipper. The warmth and charm of Hans and Ingrid surpassed any five star establishment. The only place to stay in Ouray!

We stayed 2 nights at the China Clipper and would highly recommend it to everyone. Very nice hosts and great homemade breakfast each day. We have a nice room and very clean. Good location also. Close to main street.

The China Clipper Inn is a real "Find". Close to the main street but away from the noise of traffic. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Breakfast was wonderful. I would highly recommend to friends.
