The China Clipper Experience

5 on June 28, 2015

You cannot go wrong staying at China Clipper! Hans and Ingrid, the inkeepers, make you feel right at home. The food and accommodations are wonderful! Go!


Not just a place to sleep and have breakfast

5 on June 07, 2015

Staying at the China Clipper is like staying with family friends. Hans and Ingrid make everyone feel so at home, not just at the Inn, but also in the town in general. The rooms are elegant but still comfortable and always clean. And breakfast is always tasty and satisfying, especially if you are planning on doing a lot of walking in town or on the many mountain trails accessible from Ouray. This was our second stay with them and we look forward to our third.


Comfortable, Mellow, Beautiful

Tremendously mellow way to visit Ouray. Long time resident/owners Hans and Ingrid offer as much input as you want regarding things to do or just stay out of your way. Breakfasts were over the top great and reading on the front porch in a light rain or with the sun filtering through the Aspens filled mellow breaks between hikes and visits to the hot springs.


Best Place to stay in Ouray

Hans and Ingrid are very gracious people. This bed and breakfast is beautiful inside and out. Hans is an amazing cook! Walk to everything in town. One of the most enjoyable places we've ever stayed.


A Very Unique B&B in A Unique Colorado Mining Town

4.0 on May 29, 2015

The wife and I found the China Clipper Inn B&B to be a very beautifully decorated and well cared for facility. The friendly hosts, Hans and Ingrid, were kind enough to recommend a variety of eating establishments, and several places of interest for us to consider visiting. The whole experience was so much better and much more relaxing than having stayed in a motel. Gordon & Shirley C The breakfast, prepared by Hans...was superb in every way!


Great Stay

Hidden gem of a find in Ouray. Quiet with great mountain views right outside our window.


Wonderful B & B

5 on May 25, 2015

This great experience started with a great website, as it turns out, that did justice to this wonderful B & B. The B & B's decor reflects its name, China Clipper, with many great sailing pictures and interesting sailing "things." The owners are delightful and charm you with their European heritage. By the way, they have great coffee and the breakfasts were delicious! China Clipper is central to Quray, a great place to visit.


China Clipper Visit

Had a wonderful stay at the China Clipper Inn. Room was very clean. The Inn itself was quaint and felt like home. Location is one block from the main street and walking distance to good restaurants and the Ouray Brewery. Owner Hans is a very good cook and willingly accommodates changes to the breakfast of the day.


Very Clean and Gracious Hosts - you will love this place!

5 on May 11, 2015

The China Clipper Inn is very well maintained with the cleanest rooms I have ever seen. The owners take great pride in the facility and in the happiness of its guests. The breakfast was better than any restaurant in town could have provided and right there on site in the most beautiful enclosed porch with views of the mountains.


Fantastic getaway

5 on April 29, 2015

Everything was amazing. Rooms are beautiful, clean and cozy. Breakfast was fabulous and the owners are so friendly. We will definitely go again and recommend to others. Enjoy this little gem in Ouray if you get a chance.
