I am so glad that we stated at the Biltmore Inn when visiting the estate. The employees were wonderful and accommodating, the rooms were very nice and clean, clean clean. We were surprised, when upon return from our evening out, to have received turn down service. The shuttles ran every half hour to all the wonderful places to visit on the estate. The way I look at it is, if you are going to go to the expense of visiting, (for example) Disney World, it is worth the extra expense of staying on the property. Same goes for the Biltmore.
As an added note. The breakfast was excellent. The coffee was wonderful as well as the quiche and the crepes...well I could just go on and on.
