Great hospitality, fun food, and nice location.

4.4 on September 24, 2014

We stayed in a small room, with a large deck and hot tub outside. The location near City Park was great for talking a stroll in the morning. The hosts were very kind, and the breakfast was well prepared.


Lovely, quiet retreat

4.6 on September 23, 2014

We spent 2 nights & enjoyed 1 breakfast at Castle Marne and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Presidential Suite is very spacious, with a sitting area, a large separate room with a jacuzzi tub, and a large private balcony overlooking Race St. Our breakfast in the formal dining room was very nice, and it was fun to meet other guests and share conversation about each other's trips. Castle Marne is full of original architectural features to admire and the hosts are very gracious. We would be happy to return on a future trip to Denver.


Truly Fantastic

5 on September 18, 2014

I've enjoyed staying at quite a few bed and breakfasts, and let me say, Castle Marne ranks right amongst the best I've stayed with. There is a certain expectation of a bed and breakfast that is very different from a luxury hotel. You chose a bed and breakfast for the unique environment, the history and the company. Castle Marne really stands out to me as a bed and breakfast that understood that immediately. By giving their rooms no TV (though WiFi is available) they provide an inviting throw back to the history a bed and breakfast like this represents. What stands out to me is the food, though. Breakfasts were incredibly well done and provided food that is a rarity even for a bed and breakfast. What stands out, though is the catered dinner. We had ordered a catered dinner for our weekend getaway, and frankly the food provided from Castle Marne rivals some of the better restaurants I've been at in New York, DC, or Miami. The strong attention to detail and the unique environment make this one of the best bed and breakfasts I've stayed at anywhere in America, period. (We stayed in the Mason Room)


fantastic!

Castle Marne is a wonderful place to stay. The house is beautifully restored. The grounds are very nice - the patio garden is a great place for wine with friends. The innkeepers are super friendly and cheerful. All the food was fantastic - afternoon tea, bedtime cookies, and especially breakfast. The formal breakfast was beyond anything I had expected with beautiful table service, homemade muffins and bread, tomatoes and edible flowers fresh from the garden. I absolutely recommend this inn to everyone that loves historic homes, b&b stays, or is looking for a nice vacation in the city. The location is also fantastic - one block away on 17th are many great restaurants with patios.


Castle Marne

4.6 on August 13, 2014

My husband and I, arrived in Denver from Australia after a non-stop flight quite exhausted. Castle Marne was so homely and the staff wer very friendly. We relaxed Immediately and our stay was most enjoyable. The food experience was excellent. The breakfasts were tasty and nutritious without being too rich or too big a portion. Would highly recommend !


Lovely!

4.8 on August 11, 2014

This was an extremely unique place to stay in Denver. The location is very nice for walkers like myself. There is plenty to walk to within a reasonable distance including Colfax and Jonesy's Eat Bar which I highly recommend. The building is beautiful inside and out, and it is clear that a lot of work and detail goes into maintaining all of the fresh flowers and decor. Everything was very clean as well. The staff was wonderful and accomodating. Breakfast was seriously fantastic. The private balcony and hot tub in the Raymond Room were very relaxing and the hot tub was easy to uncover and start. And the robes, OMG, the robes. I think I'm foing to buy one of those online! The only down side is that the Raymond Room is very very small. There is literally nowhere to sit or open your luggage inside the room except for the bed. This was fine for us, but if it had rained and I could not be outside, it wouldn't have been great (no TV). Just be aware and plan accordingly. Also, I would like to see the addition of making ice/buckets readily available so that we can chill a drink in our rooms. The staff did provide ice upon request as well as a corkscrew. Overall, I highly recommend Castle Marne!


Wonderful weekend

Best place to stay in Denver

This B&B has everything going for it.....location, charm, comfort, great food,history, and Innkeepers who attend to every detail with a smile! We look forward to our next visit. The B&B feels like home away from home with the bonus of someone else doing the work.


Perfect romantic getaway at half the price

5 on June 07, 2014

We stayed at Castle Marne for a romantic weekend getaway. This was only the 2nd time we have stayed at a B&B, and it totally lived up to our hopeful expectations. The price was about half of what was available for similar accommodations in the Denver downtown hotels. We stayed in the Van Cise room on the 2nd floor with its own private balcony & hot tub overlooking the garden. We were impressed by how quiet it was--we barely heard a peep from the other guests when we were in our room. The Inn itself is a historic treasure, beautifully restored & decorated in Victorian style. The garden is cozy & relaxing. The roses were just beginning to bloom, but the peonies were in full glory & their fragrance filled the air. We live in a rural mountain area, so we're not used to the city, but we felt safe in the Inn & with its location. The innkeepers are a family with 3 generations caring for their guests. They are all so warm, friendly, helpful, & super knowledgeable about activities around the Denver area. They were attentive to our needs without being overbearing. Breakfasts were served around the large dining room table. The food was not only delicious, but artistically presented. We were offered our choice of 8 or 9:30 for breakfast, which was really nice. And when we returned to the Inn at night, we enjoyed the hot tea & warm cookies that were left out for us in the sitting room. While we were there, some of our fellow guests were two newlywed couples, one that even had their ceremony there in the garden, and both couples raved about the private candlelit dinners they had been served, complete with mini cakes. We would definitely stay here again, and we give a robust recommendation of Castle Marne as the perfect place for couples to stay. Steve & Karen Shackles, Dillon, CO


Our second visit

4.4 on May 23, 2014

We first stayed here 2 years ago. The family was very accommodating that time, when we had to switch rooms to stay there for the whole length of our stay, other people had reserved rooms so no room was available for the whole time . This time we stayed in the Lang room. It was smaller than our prior rooms, but very nice. The bed requires steps to get into, which was interesting. This time the inn was full most of the nights of our stay, except for breakfast or meeting downstairs, you are unaware of other guests, so it is very quiet. The innkeepers and their children are very friendly and helpful. We visit Denver regularly and will be back again. There are still more rooms to stay in, and the breakfast is great.
