THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY

5 on December 07, 2015

We wanted to get away from family drama during the recent Thanksgiving Holidays. We had stayed at several places in Ouray but never the China Clipper. The B&B was highly recommended so we booked a stay over the holiday. Our stay was everything we expected and more. Hans and Ingred were extremely hospitable and accommodating. The menu and food was great. With all of the various accommodations available I am sure China Clipper will become a regular for my wife and I. It's great to have such a great experience within a 2 hour drive.

They do a great job on all fronts ! Would recommend it to all who want to visit Ouray !


Beautiful Old Building in Prime Position

5 on October 13, 2015

We stayed here in September for five nights. We had the Witch of the Waves room which was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. The outside decking area with seating was a bonus, particularly on hot afternoons when it was shaded but also nice on cooler mornings in the sunshine! Hans and Ingrid who run the B&B are superb - Hans is totally laid back and very helpful with advice on everything, particularly good hikes to choose. He suggested a great one for us which led up through cool pine trees and open meadows to an old abandoned mine. Hans also makes the world's best fruit muffins! Ingrid is the model of Germanic efficiency and makes suer everything works perfectly - I say Germanic but actually both Hans and Ingrid are Dutch and quite charming!. The B&B is situated on a quiet side street just a 100 yards or so from Ouray's main street and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here so it gets top rating from us!


Superior in all Respects

Review of the China Clipper Inn

4.0 on September 17, 2015

A WONDERFUL experience! Rating system would not let me choose Outstanding on all of the categories, but if I could have, I would have chosen that!! Hans and Ingrid were perfect hosts!! Can't wait to go back to this charming inn nestled among the beautiful aspen trees!!


Very pleased...

5 on September 13, 2015

The host and hostess were cordial and accommodating. They worked preparing the breakfast together with such ease and enjoyment. The pancakes, muffins, eggs, bacon, beverages and cereals were first rate. So was the hospitality. We would stay there again for sure. Thank you Hans and Ingrid.
