Great b&b. We really enjoyed our visit... Staff was great, room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast the next morning was outstanding! The tea selection is worth checking out...it's impressive! The location is also quite good. Very convenient to many of the great spots to check out in Boulder. Will definitely stay here on one next trip to Boulder!

This is a cute little B&B. Every member of staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. The breakfast is tasty and they leave out cake & cookies the whole day for you to nibble on. Our room was in the main part of the house and was small but comfortable. We ended up driving to the more touristy areas of...

This is within walking distance of downtown if you enjoy walking. The staff is over the top helpful and nice. It was not a fancy place but quite comfortable. I really appreciated the tremendous effort to be environmentally friendly------recycling, organic cotton towels and sheets all natural toiletries in large bottles and as much as possible this time of year, locally...

We were looking for a romantic getaway night in boulder and this didn't disappoint. We stayed in the bigger jetted hot tub room. Positive things: Staff was friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and neat. Like the Eco-friendly stuff, no surprise in boulder. Tea was fabulous. Coffee was fabulous. DownStairs common area was cozy and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable....

As with several other reviewers, we felt that the price (around $195) was far too high...and we have stayed at quite a lot of B/B's in the USA and know that they are mostly on the slightly more luxurious end of accommodation. It IS in an upmarket area of a university town but the road was definitely busy and the...

We absolutely love the Briar Rose! Our son lives in Boulder and this is where we stay when we come out to see him. We love it. The Blanco and Altero rooms are wonderfully spacious and just lovely. The breakfasts are outstanding and meeting and talking to such fascinating and intelligent guests at the dining room table is always a...

Briar Rose B&B in Boulder, CO is a sweet B&B in an excellent location, within walking distance to Pearl Street and a wonderful tea house which I cannot remember the name of. We stayed in one of the carriage house rooms which is separate from the main house. The room was very clean with a queen bed and bath with...

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We very much appreciate your feedback and wanted to let you know that we do, indeed, plan on further renovations this fall/winter. Last year we put $40k into various upgrades and roof replacement, the majority of our net income for the year. This, in part, is why...

We had read prior review online, checked out the website and were really expecting something much more. The staff was very friendly but faces changed daily. The breakfast was wonderful and fresh (especially homemade granola, was wonderful) but our room and overall living areas could have used some sprucing up and detail cleaning (carpets and stairway was really dirty). Location...

B&B is close walking distance to Pearl St. and to Boulder Bikes, so everything else in Boulder is just a short bike ride away. Staff was extremely welcoming. Had tea on the lawn in the evening. Very accomodating to special diets, great baked goods. B&B is associated with Naropa University, which provides an interesting atmosphere. Plus (for me) - endless...

What a disappointment! The linens are old and faded. The pillows were sweat-stained and disgusting and the staff didnt have the grace to be embarrassed. Breakfast was unimaginative and pedestrian. Although the server was very nice, service was painfully slow. The location was convenient and street parking was a plus.
