“Snique Away Special”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

A bit above average. The building is a well restored Victorian Dorm/Hotel/Hospital that reeked of tradition and history. Management was polite, informed and mildly competent. Location, while quaint and residential, was a bit far for an easy stroll to the city center. Breakfast was limited in selection but well done for what was offered. All in all, a pleasant get away.

We were looking for a quaint B&B in Asheville and this property was a great find. Quiet neighborhood and close to Biltmore. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very good as well. They recommended a local restaurant that was outstanding!

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and really liked it. Great location, near downtown and The Biltmore and great restaurants in the neighborhood. Quiet street, ample parking. The restaurant served a really nice breakfast. All in all, a great find!

Our whole experience at the Princess Anne was a pleasure. The staff made check in welcoming, the restored building is done beautifully, the happy hour, with wine and snacks was a lovely way to end the day, and the breakfast the next day was on a par with the best of bed and breakfasts. On top of all of this, since it was our honeymoon, they had placed a bottle of champagne in our room and a gift basket to also welcome us. The location is also a benefit, since it's in a residential area, off the beaten track, quiet and restful.

Room Tip: We had a suite, lovely and convenient.

What an enjoyable place to stay. Comfortable and relaxing. Nice amenities. Breakfast is lovely. Wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening were very nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. In a quiet neighborhood, but within walking distance of the center of town. An historic landmark, nicely preserved. Some noise from floor above because the historic construction has been preserved, but not too objectionable. The suite had everything we needed.

The Princess Anne has it all--comfort, convenience, personality. It has the charm of age but has been modernized just enough. Downtown is just minutes away (you can walk easily, if you're so inclined), but the neighborhood is quietly residential. Breakfast was perhaps the best I've had at a B&B, and the wine and nibbles each afternoon could almost be a meal. The staff couldn't be more helpful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Asheville!

We'd stayed there a few years back, wasn't sure what to expect. Not only has the charm maintained but they've found a way to raise the bar and make it an even more memorable stay. The staff have nothing but solid suggestions of "things to do" on the local area, and we took them up on a restaurant idea that was the best meal we ate all week.

We're coming back, and a lot sooner next time!
