We stayed, for the second time, at the Briar Rose for the week of February 11-18 and we agree with Deborah D(another reviewer), that the Briar Rose is really unique and that while most of the staff is young, they are extremely friendly and competent. One day one of us walked in while the flowers were being arranged and it was like watching a professional florist at work. The entire facility is graced with vases of fresh arrangements, which makes for a very cheery setting. Our room over the carriage house was immaculate and kept that way on a daily basis by the caring staff. The bed was very comfortable and quiet and even though the B&B abuts busy Arapahoe Avenue, even we, who live on a dead end country road find it is relatively quiet.
The breakfasts are great and one of the reasons we prefer to stay here rather than someplace where we would have to go out for breakfast. They are healthy meals with fruit, yogurt and granola each morning followed by a choice of the day which may be either eggs of some sort, pancakes or french toast. You also get an assortment of fruit breads or other breads, coffee or tea and juice. All very capably made to order and delicious.
Another nice feature of the Briar Rose is that any time that the staff is available, one can order a pot of tea and there are always delicious cookies to go with it.
The available WI FI works great(I have a Kindle Fire) and for those without a tablet, there are two computers and a printer available. Not all B&B's can offer you those choices.
The owners and the staff really make you feel at home and are very helpful if you have any questions about the area or its attractions, of which there are many. And, each time we have visited, we meet the nicest, most interesting people at breakfast. Finally, it is a perfect location, especially if you are carless because you can walk to just about anywhere downtown. We shall return!!
