  • We really enjoyed working with the staff at the Briarhurst for our wedding. It was difficult to get quick responses over emails, especially since it was a busy wedding season for the staff, but they were available and helpful in person and over the phone. We only had an issue with how under-prepared the bar was for alcoholic drinks for our guests. There was a lack of cold beer stocked behind the bar, and several guests ordered beer that they did not like while waiting for the newly stocked beer to get cold. Otherwise, we had a great day and the floor manager and the wait staff were amazingly efficient and had the place set up to our liking! We would recommend couples to attend meetings with the event coordinators as often as possible, and be sure to meet all of the payment deadlines!

  • My husband and I planned our wedding from California so it was important to have someone reliable, helpful and reassuring to help us plan our wedding ceremony and reception. The Briarhurst worked with us for 10 months by phone and emails alone and the end result was surprisingly that I couldn't have asked for much better. We had seen the grounds only once and Janice helped us every step of the way with receommendations from everything from the minister to the flowers to the dj. In the end we were thrilled at how wonderful everything turned out. The ceremony site in the gazebo area was just as I imagined, the cocktail hour outside was set up beautifully and the reception area, to my surprise was set up better than I could have expected for not having seen it all before. We were so happy with the professionalism of Janice and the Briarhurst staff and it was well worth having our wedding out of state despite all our initial apprehensions. In addition, my husband and I were very plea... Read more

  • The Briarhurst Manor was the ideal place for our wedding. It had the scenery that we were looking for. A lot of other places that we looked at were not as beautiful outside as the Briarhurst was. The grass was constantly green and thats what really attracted us to this venue. Janice was a great planner for our wedding, she was very patient with any concerns that we had and gave us really good ideas throughout the entire planning. The menu to choose from provided a great variety for any type of meal. On the day of our wedding, the staff was great not only to us, but our guests as well. Steve, the banquet captain, really helped make our day enjoyable and treated us like king & queen. He tended to our needs and really provided us with the quality of service we were looking for on our special day. If I could do it all over again, the Briarhurst would definitely be a place that I choose.

  • The Briarhurst Manor was the perfect place for our wedding. You won't find a more beautiful location in colorado springs or manitou springs. Everything was done perfectly, and the staff is so wonderful!

  • EXQUISITE in EVERY WAY: MAGICAL WEDDING!!!! Briarhurst Manor is one of the most gorgeous, magical, BEAUTIFUL, ROMANTIC places for a wedding (and a fun dinner date!). My husband and I were married there March, 27th, 2010 and couldn't have been more pleased. Janice, our event coordinator was SUPERB! She worked with us to give us our dream wedding and within our budget too! The Briarhurst is also the perfect place for wedding pictures! Not to mention their food is THE BEST we ever tasted. The Steak Diane was so tender...just everything is done to perfection. When we arrived from our ceremony, Jeremy and I were whisked to the Briarhurst front doors, the attendants parked for us, and we were attended to in every detail. I could go on and on about the Briarhurst. If you aren't getting married, then go to their restaurant for an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere and enjoy anything on the menu. Everything is 5 star. As a bride, I felt comforted in knowing every de... Read more

  • When me and my fiance decided to postpone our wedding we had already put down a large deposit for the day. Although the contract stated the deposit was non-refundable for a cancellation, most other venues will hold your full deposit for a postponement even though their contracts state the same things. This company however is ruthless and only cares about your money. When asking how much would be put towards a future event they could only offer 10% of that price. So I decided to throw a much smaller party only to find out 3 days before the party that in order to get that 10% I had to spend another $1000. The whole experience was unenjoyable and I feel tricked. Total waste of my time and energy and will NOT be re-marrying there or ever even attend a meal there. To those considering getting married there, do your research first and seriously consider looking somewhere else.

  • The venue was great. Received many compliments on the food and atmosphere. Had a lot of headaches with the event planning staff and the restrictions, though. Would recommend for a VERY small wedding without bells and whistles. Any large event would probably give you much additional stress that you already don't need on your special day!

  • I loved this place it was historic and beatuiful. The gardens were beautiful and it was perfect for our outdoor wedding. The downfal was it is also a resturant and when i went to take some of our pictures we were in peoples way or we were being told to leave that aera for other guests. I also did not enjoy my coordinator, allison. She was always busy with someone else and was rushing me through my big day. But the service besides her was amazing. We had a blast!

  • Our wedding here was beautiful. The food was great (though I wish that they had asked us if we wanted the leftovers since we didn't get to try everything). They worked very well with our other vendors and we didn't have any problems with the guests (our wedding was held outside at the West Terrace Gazebo).

  • This venue is breathtaking, fun, great food. The only thing that bothered my family and I was the way they bothered us for money DURING our wedding reception dinner. We had a reasonable, fair price, and were alerted of every "hidden cost" beforehand, but at the actual event, we had an unexpected (though welcome!) guest show up and skew the dinner count. We had no problem paying for the extra plate, but did the staff have to come up to my husband and I DURING our meal to ask us for payment?? I don't think that was necessary. My family and friends were not happy about that, but that was the only complaint I have about Briarhurst Manor. The grounds are beautiful, the food is delicious, and the memories we have of the manor are priceless.

  • The Briarhurst was beautiful and I wouldnt have wanted it anywhere else, but I was rather displeased with the service I received. The food was great, but it was presented as a buffet rather than a heavy coctail reception. Initially i was told the wrong time that we were booking the site for, and when we were taking pictures around the manor the staff was rather rude and pushy. We paid for the service there, and was basically told if we did not take pictures before the ceremony we would not be allowed to take some of the pictures that we wanted

  • Beautiful setting, and the food is delicious. They were able to come up with some vegetarian options with some proding. Just be warned that they do not stick to the same recipe from tasting to the event. My husband is violently allergic to corn. (This was all over the contract.) They completely changed the recipe for the event. (It did not even look similar to the tasting entree.) The main entree was breaded in corn chips. Thank goodness I took the first bite, and warned him not to eat it. Otherwise my husband and I woudl have spent our wedding reception in the ER. We also had at thier suggestion ordered some hanging flower balls for the dance floor. The refused to let my florist hang them because they liked the false flowers another person had hung up there a week prior. (They were ugly and tacky in my opinion.) We dropped several hundred dollars on those flower ball arrangements to have them sit on the corner of the bar. If you use Briarhurst make sure you specifically... Read more
