“The Bradley was so great, we didn't want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2008

We recently stayed three nights at the Bradley Boulder Inn. We returned with only raves, and we'll make the Bradley our first choice for our next visit to Boulder.

Our room was spacious and spotless, and it had a lovely deep jacuzzi and a gas fireplace. It was difficult to get out of bed each morning, and one day we slept in so late we missed breakfast (a shame, because the previous day's was great!). The bed was quite comfortable, and I appreciated the hypoallergenic bedding. The highlight, though, was the staff. They were all so very welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel pampered and at home, making dinner reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant within walking distance and leaving chocolates and a bottle of Champagne for our birthday celebration.

I give the Bradley Boulder Inn five stars, and I'm pretty darn picky. I can't wait for our next visit!

This is a very impressive inn (not sure whether to call it a guest house or a boutique hotel, but it's very, very nice anyway). The location is just perfect, right by Pearl St, so you don't have to drive in the evenings. Rooms are splendid - very large and the bed was just vast! The young staff are charming and extremely helpful.

My only criticism is breakfast. The tables are mainly for 4 people so it means you end up sharing a table with another couple and either ignoring your fellow diners (and your partner) by saying nothing and reading the paper, or else you enter into lively conversation which everyone else can hear. Personally (being a truly reserved Brit), I'd prefer individual tables for 2 people (and there is plenty of space available in the adjacent "living area"). Having said that, everyone else at the Bradley was American and our cousins across The Pond are just so much more sociable than we are!

The food itself was terribly good (excellent even), however it was just a little too .... elaborate. For example the only cereal on offer had nuts in it; there was a delicious quiche but I'm not really a goats cheese in the morning kind of person; there were various breads/rolls but everything seemed to have seeds on it. I'm sounding like a really fussy eater but I promise you I'm not really! I guess I just like simple things for breakfast.

We stayed at the Bradley for 4 nights in September, and we loved everything about it. The whole place is beautiful, the staff couldn't be more helpful, and the location was within walking distance to Pearl Street. The breakfast was excellent, as was the daily happy hour (which included homemade snacks). Our room was very comfortable, and had a fireplace and small balcony. Plus, our bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, which was great after a long day of hiking. We also appreciated that there was a computer with free internet access near the lobby. We can't wait to stay at the Bradley again in the near future!

My husband and I stayed at The Bradley for our honeymoon in late September. The inn was beautiful. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. We loved the ambiance. Our 2nd floor room had a small balcony to step out on. We loved being able to open the door in the morning and step out on the deck. Location was great for dining, shopping, and for a nice walk. My husband and I were looking for a relaxing honeymoon and we certainly had one. The inn is quiet and peaceful. The staff is super nice, very helpful and had great suggestions for dining. Breakfast was great as well as all the baked goods set out during the day. We hope to make it back to The Bradley for our anniversary !

We had a truly wonderful stay here in August with two teenage girls.

Rooms were peaceful - we slept great! We had two rooms on the first floor - 1 with a giant king bed, and 1 with a queen bed and jacuzzi bathroom. Beds very comfortable, rooms very clean.

Location is perfect - very short walk to Pearl Street, but on a private and quiet road. Near lots of good restaurants, and we received great food recommendations from the front desk.

Amenities exceeded expectations - a lot of breakfast choices that filled us up and snacks/water/soda/fresh cookies availability throughout the day. Free internet/computer in the business area. When you're traveling, these kind of expenses can add up, so we really appreciated their availability. Plus, there's nothing like coming in from a long day sightseeing to get fresh cookie and iced tea!

The people working at the Bradley were lovely - helpful but not intrusive.

Would highly recommend! Am looking forward to the day I can return to Boulder and the Bradley.

I've stayed here many times, both for business and pleasure trips. It's always wonderful! The inn itself is inviting, large fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating, from a central sitting area to nooks and crannies for private reading. The rooms are comfortable and roomy, with phone, wireless, everything you'd expect businesswise, plus copier/fax/printer readily available downstairs. Breakfasts are a real treat! The location is fabulous--right downtown Boulder--so that you can walk to most everywhere. There's a great selection of excellent restaurants within a block or two. If you like homey and the chance to visit with others, you'll love The Bradley. The staff invites you in and makes you feel right at home the whole time you're here!

AWESOME sums it up. We stayed at the Bradley for 2 nights, had an unexpected late check-in which was dealt with smoothly and without question. Great breakfasts with healthy options such as fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits in addition to quiches and french toast. Top notch linens, Aveda bath products, gas fireplace in the room, clean and beautiful building (built to be a B&B I believe; not a house turned B&B), helpful and polite staff. Everything was marvelous. We will definitely be back.
