  • Fun! Had the tea, great food and other desserts. Additional drinks are a bit pricey, but still delicious. Nice castle, currently in renovations.

  • What a completely unexpected place in Manitou Springs. It's huge, expanded over time, and has a ton of interesting architectural features, like the 16 sided room and the unusual fireplace and bay...

  • This is a very interesting place to visit. It looks more like an old mansion than it does a castle though. There is more history presented about the area and different eras. The castle went through different ownerships and different phases. If you are a history buff it is worth the tour.
  • Came here for Mother's Day high tea. Service was good. Decoration was great. Felt like I was in England again. Chinaware was very nice. $50 / person was a bit pricey for cold sweet desserts and food that wasn't prepared hot except for the scones. Even the sandwiches were a bit too tiny. The fruit cup had like 7 different types of food including mango slice, which was great, but looked like they were cut up 2 days ago and put in the fridge. Didn't give us stomach upset though. The last course dessert pieces could have been easily pulled out from a grocery's bag of candies and bit too sweet for our taste. Overall everything was tiny and cute, which fit more for "kids" than "adults". Love the napkin folding art even with a clip. They had a variety of teas to choose from which was great. We like the coconut banana over the other fruity ones as they were a bit sour which is slightly strange combination in a tea. Didn't have sugar cubes as I usually found in England during any meal. Atmosphere was great for sure. We were not big eater so it filled us up just fine. But if you're big eater, might want to have plan B after this.
