“A fantastic experience for ANY price; almost unbelievable for what we paid.”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

This is our second year in a row at the Princess Anne. We loved it so much last year that we came back this year. Once again, we were not disappointed. Breakfast is phenomenal, rooms are big, clean, cosy, and well furnished. We really appreciated being able to walk downtown, also. Great location.

The staff are so personable. They are friendly, talkative, and helpful. It's so nice to get good concierge service. Last year, I wanted to go mineral collecting, but I didn't have any tools. I told the concierge and she surfaced almost immediately with a hammer and chisel. This year, I just said the word "migraine" and instantly was holding water and ibuprofen. That desk is magic.

It's apparent that the people behind the Princess Anne have a passion for making guests comfortable and happy. From the free wine and excellent truffles to the comfortable chairs scattered around the building, everything about the place is inviting--and off-season rates are less than many chain hotels!

We will definitely be back. If you're looking for an exceptional place to stay in Asheville, go to the Princess Anne. You won't be disappointed.

I stayed here with my boyfriend December 15-17 after spending some much needed time in the mountains in the days previous. It was nice to return to civilization and especially nice to stay somewhere with such welcoming accommodations and relatively easy access to downtown! Once we checked in, we didn't drive our car once. That being said: we really like to walk and explore, so if you're not one for hills, but don't want to drive, then maybe you should look closer to town. We loved it, though.

Our room was bright and spacious, and our bed was seriously comfortable, with excellent linens. The bathroom was cold, but big with really nice fixtures. We even had a large walk-in closet, which was great for drying our wet clothes after spending a day in the rain! The worst thing about the room actually had nothing to do with the room - we must have been there on garbage pick-up day because some really loud truck came really early in the morning one day and totally woke us up...

...but that was okay because we had the most excellent breakfast waiting for us downstairs. The menu changed from morning to morning, which was nice. We also enjoyed afternoon "wine time"! The staff was extremely personable and eager to assist.

I would definitely stay here again!

I must say I love older hotels and understand that they have their quirks so I can look past many issues. Overall I liked The Inn. Like many others have stated the staff and food were excellent not to mention we recieved champagne in our room for NYE.

The probelms that I had were that the walls were marked by the wcker tables and chairs in the room and not to mention they were ripped. They need to be replaced!

The Bathroom Please be aware that the shower is very narrow not that I had a problem, what I did have a problem with was the mildew at the bottom of the shower and near the window yuck.

The mattresses We turned and tossed all night not at all comfortable and we sank to the middle.

I did enjoy this place and hope they will be able to correct thses items

Charming hotel, nice location. The afternoon wine and cheese was wonderful, and the complimentary bedside chocolate truffles delicious. Breakfast was also very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The old building is charming--just be ready for radiator heat and lack of soundproofing. We had a one-bedroom plus sitting room, which was spacious with a complete kitchen; it was a little underfurnished and the decorations were less elegant and more eclectic than I had expected.

We stayed at this beautiful 16 room bed and breakfast for just one night but I wish it could have been more. Very convenient to downtown, Biltmore and Grove Park Inn. We stayed in one of the smaller type rooms but it was very nice and comfortable. The complmentary breakfast that is a sit down breakfast was wonderful! Very charming and lovely place to stay while in Asheville. I would highly recommend it and hope to have an opportunity to stay there again.

Room Tip: OUr room was on the second floor, the only noise we could hear were people walking on the floor abov...
