Boulder B&B

3.6 on July 06, 2014

The house and room was clean. Overgrown weeds along the front sidewalk made it difficult to walk. The house attendant was a bit aloof, but made sure our needs were met. Breakfast was above average and set up nicely. We only stayed one night, but feel that multiple nights would allow one to take advantage of the comforts the house offers.

Perfect start of our vacation

We stayed in the Widom room and it was comfy and quiet. The staff was very helpful, not gushy-in-your-face but genuine.NIce. As the website describes, breakfast was fab, even though we are not big breakfast eaters and the coffeee (big drinkers!) was excellent.

A Special Place

I stayed 2 nights for a business trip and it was great. So relaxing to come back to after a day of meetings. The place has a warm welcoming vibe, and as others have said the staff is great. And the breakfasts are awesome. Nice, reasonable walk to the Pearl St. Mall, and also close to the well known Yoga Workshop Ashtanga studio. Thanks for a great stay.

Wonderful place run by a wonderful couple with an awesome staff

I have stayed at a number of places in downtown Boulder over the past two years, and this is my favorite. I stayed here for two weeks in May 2012, and another week in August 2012, and I've booked another stay for a few days in November. I can easily walk to my office on Pearl St. from the Briar Rose, which I prefer over driving. The breakfasts are awesome, and you if come away hungry, it's by choice. They serve homemade granola, with fresh cut fruit and yogurt every morning. Then each morning they cook up something special, whether it is a veggie scramble, Belgium waffles, omelettes, or blueberry pancakes it was all very good. They also have a large selection of quality loose leaf teas to choose from - Oolongs, Darjeeling, Assam, Rooibos, Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong, with lots of other black, green, white, and herbal teas. If you like tea, you'll love the selection.
