As reported in previous reviews, the grounds and exterior are gorgeous, but the rooms and interior of the inn itself is anything but attractive. The place was clean, but carpets are showing signs of wear and beds have craters in them. We did not have the room serviced while we were there, so no review of that. We also did not take advantage of the Balsam Spa. It may have been nice, but my wife and I chuckled when we saw the building that looked like the grounds keeper's house for the spa.
We received tickets for complimentary breakfast buffet that was pretty good (normally around $12/person). Scrambled eggs (real eggs), hash browns (under-cooked), biscuits, gravy, and grits were in a buffet-style setup. It was unfortunate that the Cork and Cleaver was not open during our stay. They actually have a decent restaurant review. There was nothing that indicated that the restaurant was closed. The alternative "Tap Room" was what you might expect at any bar. The staff was nice and friendly. Historic Waynesville and nearby Asheville was a treat.
Other than updating the interior, I would suggest to the owners that some finishing touches would make a world of difference (eg. fresh flowers for the room, some better toiletries, key card entry system, etc.).
I would return if the place was renovated.
