The title of the review captures it best. Large and very comfortable rooms, wonderful spa, impeccable and friendly service, farm fresh food, and a uniquely unusual ability to take care of and surprise you with all of the little things that most hotels miss – and which differentiates a great hotel from its competitors. This may be one of the three best hotels I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the balcony rooms with a view. Get a room away from the corridor doors

This is one of the finest hotels around. Our room was very large and extremely comfortable. It opened to a private parlor shared only by the couple we were traveling with. Service is also top notch. Staff seems well trained and all were unfailingly friendly. They certainly added to our pleasant visit. Highlands is a neat little town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in extreme western NC. Flat landers flock to this area in the summer to escape the heat of the south. At more than 4,000 ft. Above sea level, Highlands is always much cooler during the summer than most of the deep south. The Old Edwards Inn's recent renovations and expansion has created a total upgrade for the Highlands area. It has a top rated spa and guests have access to the resorts semi-private golf course nearby. Lastly, Madison's, the hotels fine dining venue, is the best restaurant in a town with several surprising good places to dine.

Stay in the newer section for larger rooms. By far one of the better food choices in the area.

Two nights here and my wife said she could live here. Rooms are not huge, but plenty big enough. We had a balcony overlooking Main Street. The people here are so nice from the time you walk in and they show you around. There is a butler's room on each floor with soft drinks, fruit, bottled water, coffee, tea, and my favorite Dove Ice Cream Bars, You have complimentary use of the fitness center and spa and the heated salt pool.

My husband and I spent two nights at The Old Edwards Inn and Spa in June of last year. I regret that I did not write this review sooner, but I guess it's better late than never. This place truly deserves all the acclaim it has been receiving. We stayed at a corner cottage and we had our own patio. Our cottage was very clean, inviting and private. We especially loved the heated floors of our bathroom! It helped me get our bathing suits dry and ready to pack the day after. :) We were a few steps away from the 24-hour business center (which also houses the 24-hour pantry filled with Dove bars, fresh fruits, etc). We also availed of the Bliss for Two massage at the Spa. This is certainly a great way to get pampered! We were the last appointment for the day and we were in quite a rush because we came from the Biltmore Estate earlier that day. We just had a few minutes to spare before our scheduled appointment, and had I known what a luxurious place the spa would be, I would have totally reworked our schedule around it. Make sure you have plenty of time to spare because the pampering comfort of the shower, sauna and whirlpool bath in their locker room is an experience in itself! After your massage, while you're still in your plush robes, they give you time to sip tea in the spa patio with a view of the town. I have to note that the spa staff was incredible in making us feel that we could take our time doing this even though they were already closing down for the day. They allowed us to savor the full experience with the limited time that we had. This is definitely a trip that I would encourage couples, young and old, to take. Truly worth the trip and worth the price!
