“Will definitely be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. We only wish our stay had been longer. We have stayed at nearby BnBs but found this to be equal or superior. The staff was friendly and attentive. Unlike most BnBs we could choose when to arrive for breakfast and the food was excellent. We found it to be an easy walk to downtown.

We booked our vacation and stayed at the Princess Anne due to a Jetsetter deal. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and the breakfasts were very good. Highly recommend this b & b if you are looking for a place to stay in Asheville.

Rooms were spacious and clean...

Lovely place, fantastic staff with great ideas, wonderful full breakfast, good location, plenty of parking, and the afternoon wine and snacks were an added treat!!

The bed wasn't that comfortable and our air conditioner leaked -filled up a half bucket of water during the night. The owner promptly fixed it the next day for the next night.

Wonderful visit. The breakfast was incredible. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room was very clean. We had chocolate truffles and bottles of water every night when we returned to our room.

My husband accompanied me on a business trip to Asheville and we stayed at this hotel at the suggestion of my daughter and son-in-law. From welcoming check in to speedy check out with inquiry about our stay, we were treated to special attention. Room rate offered a full breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese at a nominal charge. The room was spacious and clean and included a small kitchen had we wish to cook or eat in. I will stay there again my next trip to the area. My only suggestion to the chef prepared breakfast would be to offer a choice of sweet bread (biscuit, cinnamon roll, blueberry coffee cake, or pastry) instead of toast; just another little touch that supports this hotel's elegance.

We loved this hotel. It is an easy walk into central Asheville and has plenty of parking on site. The cocktail hour gives you the opportunity to chat with fellow guests in the lounge or outside on the shady patio. Breakfast is fabulous.

The Princess Anne Hotel is classic southern charm at its best: a 1920s restored hotel with 16 rooms, several sitting areas including the porch, and an elegant dining area, all with high ceilings, and is quaint and quiet. The rooms are suites with two rooms with a kitchenette. A stay includes afternoon wine (of regional wines) and cheese and fruit and an excellent made to order breakfast with 3 options available and fresh squeezed orange juice and organic coffee. This hotel sits in the middle of a neighborhood of Victorian era architecture of old Asheville. The homes are all now law, architect, psychologist, dentist, etc. offices, but restored and maintained very well. It is a safe area for walking, with downtown, trolley stops, the Botanical Gardens and the Riverside Cemetery each about a mile away. All staff were friendly and helpful, offering recommendations regarding the walking distance and routes.
