Hill House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #19 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Hill House is a great place to stay if you're headed to the Asheville area. It's located in a quiet little neighborhood just outside of downtown, and while it's a bit of a hike to get into the heart of town, it's certainly walkable. The B&B has lots of historical charm, and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. We were particularly impressed by the cleanliness at Hill House - the staff do a fantastic job at keeping the place absolutely immaculate. And of course, the breakfast was delicious, too!

Hill House B&B is within walking distance of downtown Asheville, has extensive and lovely gardens, and benefits from a special assistant, Matthew. Our particular room, on the ground floor, had a nice view of the garden but was too dimly lit to read in at night because we are elderly and need more light. Most of you would probably not notice this. Matthew is a real gem, willing to answer any question and help in any way he can. He was a huge help in telling us what to order at his favorite downtown restaurant, Curate (highly recommended). Despite our travels to several European countries, including Spain, we were not very familiar with tapas (missed that lesson in Barcelona), and he patiently marked our menu and told us a lot about his travels in Spain, his relatives who still live there, and his background in the tapas restaurant business. We took so much of his time (30 minutes?) that his job was neglected, for which we must apologize. He has such good manners that we could not have guessed we were taking him away from more important work. One suggestion for improvement would be to provide an ice machine in the guest kitchen so guests don't have to bother the owner or Matthew for ice. The warm weather, coupled with warm club soda stored in our room, caused the ice to melt at a rapid rate and required us to pester the owner for more ice. Other guests were having a problem finding ample ice as well - maybe just one day and not a normal occurrence. Also, a reading lamp in the room with a higher wattage bulb would be desirable. There is a breakfast cook who evidently also helps with tidying up the rooms; she is extremely energetic and moves so fast we didn't really get to say hello, but several guests were pleased with her breakfast offerings - she alternates sweet and savory, so if you stay two days you can try both. We can recommend Blue Spiral 1 gallery and the Co-op gallery downtown, in addition to Curate.

My wife and I have been in BB in many countries, in particular in France, but this has been one of the best. Great keepers, clean, nicely decorated and comfortable room (we loved the shabby shic deco). We especially enjoyed the hang mat, the porch and the hospitality of David & Matthew, we had a great time!

It was a last minute decision to visit Asheville after being in Atlanta visiting our grandkids. I found Hill House B&B on the internet and was able to book a room for the weekend. Our room had a beautiful view of the garden which has a hammock and wooden chairs for relaxing. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees and plants and provides privacy. Our host Matthew and the young man working the evening we arrived were very welcoming and gave us suggestions for dining in Asheville. The room was clean and the bed comfortable with plenty of pillows. There were pastries/coffee available at 7:00 and a formal breakfast at 9:00.The breakfast on Saturday morning was delicious; gourmet pancakes, mango/orange juice and plenty of coffee. It was a cool morning and all the guests had breakfast on the porch. We enjoyed talking to everyone and were given great ideas of things to do around Asheville. My husband and I have been to many B&B's over the years and this is one we would love to stay in again.
