5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I'm not normally a B&B person,but this hotel was near where I had an early job iinterview, so I booked it. Great service, great rate. I got a deluxe suite, and was expecting a large bedroom with a loveseat. What I got was a large, beautifully decorated roomy one bedroom apartment, large sitting area with beautiful sofa, kitchen area including small stove. The place was so quiet, I slept with the windows open which was lovely. Very safe for a single travelor. I didn't even get to enjoy the food as I got in late and left early, but I still feel I got a great value.

Only way I'd give it a higher rating was if I could have taken my pooch :)

My wife and I returned to the Princess Anne in September, staying 2 nights to soak up the Asheville vibe this year (1 night last year). We would not stay anywhere else in Asheville. I can't think of anything negative to say. Gracious hosts/employees, spacious rooms, great wine and hors d'oeuvres daily, sumptious breakfast, convenient location, reasonable pricing. (If looking for an activity, we highly recommend the Asheville Botanical Gardens.)

My husband and I stayed at the Princess Anne for 2 nights in September. It was great. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. The wine and appetizer hour was a great way to relax after a day of hiking and exploring Asheville. Their restaurant recommendations were perfect. I can't speak highly enough of this charming hotel.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the suite if it is in your budget.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Princess Anne. It is a great old building with lots of charm. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They had a very nice evening treat of wine and hors d'oeuvres and a delicious breakfast selection. We hope to stay there again soon.

We just returned from a quick trip to Asheville and were fortunate enough to book our 45th anniversary night at the Princess Anne Hotel in Asheville. What a serendipity! I was a bit hesitant at first because of the age of the hotel but after reading the reviews I found them all so positive I felt it was worth a try. From the minute we entered the outside portico I was already anticipating a great experience. The staff were delightful and very helpful with getting us into our room to finding a restaruant for the evening. The room was very spacious and clean...a must for me! My only disappointment in the room was there was no place convenient to put on makeup or room to set anything down. Had I know I would have brought a make-up mirror but we worked around this minor inconvenience. We had a small kitchen area in our sitting room with a separate bathing area and then the bedroom. The evening wine and appetizers was like something out of a gourment extravaganza and the breakfast was better than most higher priced hotels and it was free!!! All in all a wonderful experience for our 45th.

First time at the Princess Anne. We met friends there for the weekend and can't say enough about this little gem. Really more a big B&B than a hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful, the deluxe suite was well appointed and the building itself was lovely. The 4pm wine and hors d'oeuvres was better than at most facilities as was the breakfast in a very comfortable dining room. Weather permitting, sitting out on the large porch is a treat. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown area with all of the restaurants and shops. We couldn't have been happier and will make this our home away from home on any future trips to Asheville.

Princess Anne Hotel was a wonderful place to stay! It provided the privacy of a hotel with the nice touches of a bed and breakfast. After spending the day in downtown, we checked in and enjoyed their free wine and hors d'oeuvres. The indoor and outdoor sitting areas are perfectly quiet places to relax. They also have a great dining room where they serve a delicious breakfast to order. The room was very clean and comfortable and even came with some great homemade biscotti. The staff was helpful and polite. I enjoyed the stay and would recommend the Princess Anne Hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Asheville.
