Kristin, the sales and catering manager, and Catherine, one of her assistants at the Cliff House, were wonderful in assisting us in planning and carrying out our wedding. They were very accommodating and friendly, working with our schedules to meet with us for planning and food tasting. The guidance they provided in areas where we weren't sure exactly what we wanted was spot-on. We also used their in house baker to create our cake. I just gave her pictures and ideas, and she crafted a beautiful masterpiece! We also had a buffet provided by the Cliff House, and every dish was amazing. We had SO many compliments from our friends and family, pertaining to how smoothly and beautifully 'put together' our wedding ceremony and reception was. We would highly recommend the Cliff House as a perfect venue for a wedding! Love them!

We were very pleased with everything about our wedding & reception at The Cliff House at Pikes Peak! We found Kristin & Catherine to be very responsive and wonderful to work with leading up to and during the event. The location and facilities at The Cliff House simply cannot be beat, and the service by the banquet staff was unparalleled!

We had our wedding at the Cliffhouse and it was an amazing experience from the very beginning. The planning process with Kristin was so smooth and easy to maneuver through. She really helped me get things organized.
While at the Cliffhouse the staff was AMAZING!! From the bellhops to the catering managers, everyone was absolutely wonderful to us. Christy was great to work with and so much help during our ceremony and rehearsel. It was truly beyond our expectations...

We had my son's wedding and reception this past Saturday, January 26, 2013 and I have to say everything from the beginning of the planning to the final results it surpassed our expectations! The venue is gorgeous, the food is delicious, the staff are amazing and the hotel accommodations are beautiful! The suites are absolutely gorgeous (if you like large steam showers, jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces) and there is so much history in the hotel it's a fun place to stay. Not to mention it's walking distance to the fun town of Manitou Springs with many shops and restaurants. Our guests are still raving that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Kudos to everyone at the Cliff House!

If you want a wedding that is truly a magical fairy tale, have it at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs. Surrounded by majestic mountain beauty, the venue can't be beat. With a panoramic view upstairs in the CS Pavillion you will feel the beauty while saying your vows and your guest will appreciate the different but classic venue. Stroll down to the Red Mountain Bar and Grill for the cocktail hour and yummy snacks. I got so many compliments on the food! Party at your reception in the JS Morely Ballroom. High ceilings a fireplace could you ask for more? I wanted a wedding to remember and I got it. All my family and friends are still talking about it. The food, the venue, it was perfect. You won't be disappointed. Call and ask for Kristin!

Our experience with the Cliff House could not have been smoother. My groom and I looked at a few places in Manitou Springs and BY FAR the Cliff House was the best value all around. The venue is gorgeous and historic. We held our reception in their Pavilion, and Kristin, our contact, always responded to emails and phone calls quickly and professionally. We had to make a few changes to things along the way and she worked with us, patiently, every time. Our guests raved about the view, the food, the service, and the professionalism. And since we held the reception on a Sunday afternoon, the cost was very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend the Cliff House to anyone looking to throw a great, and beautiful party. They are the best!

We had all of our events at the Cliff House: the rehearsal dinner, cocktail reception, wedding ceremony and reception as well as an after party at the bar. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel since we got a fantastic group rate and had farewell breakfast the next morning too. The staff was very friendly, efficient and professional. The ballroom was a great choice for the reception thanks to its elegance and romantic atmosphere. The hotel rooms were perfect and the food was great at all the events. Planning a wedding is always stressful but Kristin (sales and catering manager) made it very smooth and enjoyable. We are really happy that we had picked the Cliff House for our special day and can't wait to return for our first anniversary coming up soon!

Kristin the event planner was very helpful. I felt like she went above and beyond event planning and was closer to a wedding planner. I would recommend this venue as the food and cake was good, the service wonderful, and the ballroom beautiful. I felt like Kristin tried to work with us within our budget. The only thing I would point out is that from the ceremony location, it is difficult to see the mountains unless you are right at the edge of the room.

The Cliff House was the perfect place for our wedding! It is a gorgeous hotel with an AMAZING staff that truly knows what customer service is about. The value for the price is unbeatable ($6000 and i had the whole hotel for my entire day! and an amazing catered piano hour with scrumptous appetizers, and a full dinner for all my guests, that price also included all chair, linens, stereo equipment, etc rentals) No better place in Colorado!

A very nice location and convenient to lodge and hold a wedding in. The staff was knowledgeable, helpful and easy to coordinate wedding details with. Especially impressed with some of the cleaning staff's courtesy and help. The food was very good, as it should have been for the cost encountered. Highly recommend the Jenny Lind room for Bridal quarters.

I had my wedding and reception at the Cliff House in the Spires Pavilion and it was stunning! Everything looked absolutely beautiful. I worked with Kristin the event coordinator, who is simply fantastic! When we had a problem with our baker who wanted to deliver the cake during my ceremony she called and re-negotiated a time with them when they refused to work with us.

My problem with The Cliff House was with the food service. Unfortunately, Kristin left and everything fell apart. Anthony was put in charge and he forgot to bring bread to the tables before dinner, so we had to remind him. Some tables didn't get enough bread for everyone seated there. The steak we ordered was still moo-ing and bleeding when it got to the tables and there simply wasn't enough waitstaff. I'm terribly disappointed with the food service because it puts such a cloud over the rest of a beautiful evening. Additionally, there was supposed to be wine service at the tables, which didn't happen. When we complained Anthony then lied about how things went the night before - such a shame.

In the end, the food service was atrocious and did not reflect the amount of money we paid. It's so sad because everything else was lovely. I would recommend The Cliff House, but I would make sure you don't let Anthony run your meal service unless you want to pay $60+ a head for shoddy service.
