October birthday

4.4 on October 23, 2014

A great, beautiful weekend, we will be back


Beautiful stay!

5 on October 19, 2014

Highly recommend China Clipper Inn to anyone visiting Ouray, CO. Rooms were comfortable, tasteful and beds cozy. Fireplace in rooms to add that nice warm touch. Innkeepers were friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts were more than delicious!! Quiche, cereals, eggs, yogurt, juices, bacon, sausage, breads, etc. Each day different. Also warm, just out of the oven, delicious muffins. The chocolate ones were like having a piece of chocolate cake for your breakfast dessert. Coffee and assorted teas available 24 hours a day. If you are going to Ouray, you must stay at the China Clipper Inn.!!!


Amazing hosts, accommodations and guests!

5 on October 09, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time in Ouray and at the China Clipper Inn. Ingrid and Hans were a delight to talk with and were stellar hosts. Their homemade breakfasts were wonderful and it was a joy to meet and get to know guests from around the country and even Australia. Although I believe the inn was built almost 20 years ago it looks and feel new. Obviously Ingrid and Hans take great pride in their inn and keep it well maintained. The common areas and rooms are kept very clean and they are quite comfortable and roomy. We plan to visit Ouray next year to hit some trails we missed this year and will surely hope there is room at the China Clipper Inn for our stay.


A wonderful place to stay!

5 on October 09, 2014

My husband and I stayed two nights at the China Clipper in the room "Romance of the Sea". It was a beautifully decorated room with a porch to sit out on during the the crisp cool mornings and evenings. Hans and Ingrid were a delight as host and helped with adventure ideas during our stay. The accommodations were excellent. The breakfasts delicious and was set up as a buffet style and I thought that a great idea for a B&B. My husband and I discussed how hard it would be to keep a place that size so clean. This place was immaculate! We really enjoyed our stay. Room Tip: Just a bit of a warning though, it has a staircase to climb to enter the house and another flight of stairs to some of the rooms.


Always a five star experience!

Hans and Ingrid are a welcoming, happy, and engaged host and hostess. We would not stay anywhere else in Ouray.


Nifty Experience, but Not for Us

4.0 on October 06, 2014

We very much enjoyed this B & B experience. The innkeepers, particularly Hans, were most accommodating; however, our room lacked four comforts we find hard to sacrifice: lots of horizontal surfaces, TWO comfortable chairs (or a sofa) so we can both sit and relax/work at the same time, adequate electrical plugs, and coffee in our room.


Very nice inn in a very nice town.

3.8 on October 05, 2014

Hans and Ingrid do a very nice job and are very attentive to their guests. The Inn is a beautiful old building right in the middle of town. It was an easy walk to restaurants.


China Clipper Superb!!

5 on October 04, 2014

OUTSTANDING! This was our first visit to Ouray, Colorado, and as B&B "Experts", we have stayed at many B&B's all over. All B&B"s have their own way of doing things - China Clipper Inn is spot on! While this is a larger B&B (I believe they can host up to 26 guests at a time), the breakfasts were NOT "Plain Jane" - very tasty. Hans even passed on some of his secrets for deeeelish egg dishes, creamy muffins, and tasty herb potatoes. While Inn Keepers can't be everywhere all the time, Hans & Ingrid were just a call away if you needed anything. Highly Recommend. P.S. RE "Tolerable's" below feedback - I think his wife needs to ditch him. This place was great.


Tolerable.

3.6 on October 01, 2014

The room and bath room were very clean. The breakfasts were a split. My wife thought the breakfasts were great. I prefer "Plain Jane" food and when Hans mentioned "Eggs Benedict" to me, I asked my wife "what's that?" Poor Hans. So unless you're a person that will eat anything, be prepared.


Fall Stay

3.6 on October 01, 2014

Nice rooms in the center of town, so great location. Very brief time spent at check in orientation. Room was nicely decorated and spacious. Shower was small and water was difficult to turn on to correct temp. The evenings in Ouray are cool, but even with the windows open our room did not cool off so we had to run the AC. Effective but noisy. Breakfast was buffet style, which meant pancakes and eggs were sitting in the warming dish and not done fresh. Nothing special about the spread. Nice public areas inside. Several outside porches with nice views, but not clear if they were open to all guests or supposed to belong to a specific room.
