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.

Sadly our stay in the Princess Anne was only one night long: as soon as we arrived we wished we were staying longer! Everything about the hotel, from the gorgeous rooms, to the friendly staff to the incredible breakfast was perfect and little details like having parking, breakfast, afternoon drinks and wifi all included made us really feel like guests rather than customers. We will be back!

My wife and I had to make a last minute trip to Asheville to assist our daughter with college enrollment. She got on the internet and started searching motels and came across The Princess Anne. She liked what she saw and booked for one night. We were delighted. Quiet, quaint, and comfortable. Got there in time to enjoy their complimentary wine and cheese. Pleasant hosts. Free on site parking. Delicious breakfast cooked to order. Easy walk to downtown so you don't have to fight the parking. When we checked out I asked how full were they the preceeding night. They said they were full. You could not tell, it was so quiet. We will return.

We stayed over at the hotel for one night. The hotel is an old historic building on walking distance from the city centre. We were warmly welcomed at the reception and got a detailed explanation about the hotel and surroundings. We received an upgrade on our room which is always nice and a plus. Our room was spacious with a sitting room and seperate bedroom. The bathroom however was very tiny. In the afternoon there is a nice reception with hors d'oeuvres and wine. Breakfast is served at the table from a menu. We were not convinced about the food and found it a bit sad that apart from fruit juice and water there were no cereals, bread, fruit, etc. That could be taken freely.

We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay! We are happy to hear that you felt warmly welcomed and sorry that you felt the bathroom was too small. In an effort to preserve the historical integrity of the 89 year old building, it was necessary to keep the bathrooms at their current size. We do have larger suites in the hotel with larger bathrooms to accommodate guests who wish for more room. We are also very pleased to hear that you enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, we are sorry if you felt that our breakfast was not everything you had hoped. We do not offer a breakfast buffet, rather a menu in which to order one of three gourmet choices. We try to regularly practice asking all of our guests if there is anything more we can provide them, and we apologize if we did not extend this to you during your stay. Once again, thank you for staying at the Princess Anne and thank you so much for your valuable feedback.
