Beautiful place.

Posted 24-Apr-2016
Pros: Everything
Location: Half block from Main Street and its restaurants.
This is really an exceptional B&B. The rooms are wonderful and the public spaces are gorgeous. The owners are wonderful and very helpful. Breakfast was more than we expected with coffee and juice, fresh cut fruit and eggs Benedict with asparagus.

Beautiful get a way.

Posted 29-Mar-2016
Pros: Very welcoming
Cons: It was just perfect.
Location: Middle of the Rockies, great restaurants, craft brewer, water falls, hiking trails, hot spring swimming.
Everything about our stay was great. The building was beautiful, antique furniture, subtle clipper ship theme, great view, lovely Inn keeper family, walking distance to main street as well to trail heads.

Wonderful Hosts!

Posted 09-Feb-2016 on Hotels
We were very impressed with the B&B - the hosts were super attentive, the food was wonderful and the property was in great condition. The main room was cozy and inviting with a fireplace. The breakfasts were very tasty! More importantly, though, they were very caring and accommodating. My wife had an injury and needed to lay down much of the time while I went out climbing. They were great to offer her to stay in the room a bit past check out so she could relax and I could still have fun climbing for the day. Just a week ago at another hotel we were charged for this "perk" and at the China Clipper they offered with me barely even getting the request out. That is the true benefit of great people who like what they do and want to offer top-notch service to their guests. We will be back!

China Clipper is outstanding!

Posted 22-Jan-2016
Pros: Imagine coming outside on a 15 degree morning after a big snow to clean your car off, only to discover that the owners had already done it for you!
Location: Main Street is a block away with many shops and eateries, and the Box Canyon (home of ice climbing) is a 15 minute walk.
Hans and Ingrid (the owners) went out of their way to be sure we took advantage of all the amenities they offer - this is an outstanding B&B and we highly recommend it. It's in a great location within walking distance to all that Ouray has to offer. We've stayed in 5 or 6 places in Ouray, but this is the only one we'll book in the future.

Great getaway, wonderful hospitality and breakfast

The China Clipper is a gem in the beautiful small town of Ouray. Whether you are there for hiking, ice climbing, the hot springs or relaxing, this is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and charming. The owners are accommodating and so friendly. Breakfast is delicious! I would definitely stay again!

October stay in Ouray

Posted 08-Oct-2015 on Hotels
We've stayed in several B&Bs over the last year, a couple of good ones, most are so-so, a few that ought to get out of the business. This is the second best B&B experience we've had! Really nicely kept, friendly, a block off of main street. The breakfast was delicious.

Exquisite decor but a little short on coffee

Posted 05-Oct-2015 on Hotels
The rooms and public spaces are beautifully decorated with antiques or reproductions consistent with the clipper ship theme and period. One might think it was located on Nantucket or Cape Cod. However, the bathroom was very mundane. One problem though was that the four poster bed was very high and difficult to get into. The inn keeper laughed when I commented that a step stool was called for, but in fact I saw one in another room as I was departing. All rooms really need that equipment if they all have the same high beds. The breakfast was good and quite varied in its offerings but not really special. Only at breakfast was coffee available. At other times guests could make tea from tea bags but not coffee. No coffee maker in the rooms. In my opinion, a single serving coffee maker is called for in the communal space. The location is central, just one street away from the main street on which the restaurants are located.
