This hotel must be one of the best BW hotels I have ever stayed in. To be honest, the BW group is very variable - you can stay in some extreme budget options. This hotel whilst moderately priced is absolutely first class. We had a fireplace/jacuzzi suite and it was fantastic especially for our family of 2 adults/2 teens. The room is huge with a kingsize bed plus a queen sofa bed. There is a massive tv, a fireplace and a large corner style jacuzzi bath. In the bathroom (which is a fair size) there is a bath/shower combo too.

It looks extremely new but I believe is not. Very quiet too with great views of the valley. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet was one of the best with cereal/muffins/bagels/biscuits/sausage/juice etcetc. Plenty of it and good quality. The other facilities were great too.

We enjoyed Boone and would have loved to have stayed longer. There are plenty of restaurants to suit every budget from KFC up. It is extremely well placed for sightseeing.

We went to "Horn in the West" a show that has been running for many years. I wish I could say it was good but it was absolutely dreadful made worse by the constant attack of flies and mosquitoes. We had to leave. Be warned!

One other warning: The Blowing Rock (in Blowing Rock) is privately owned and costs $$$ to see. It really isn't worth it at all. Don't go. Grandfather Mountain is also privately owned and costs the same but is infinitely better - wonderful scenery, zoo, picnics etc.
