Princess Anne Hotel
Ranked #12 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2013

My husband and I went to Asheville for a couple days, before meeting our friends in the mountains of Georgia. We loved our stay at the Princess Anne, and the people there were very friendly, and helpful. Anna was the best. The wine and cheese in the afternoons was great, and the breakfasts we had both mornings were plentiful, and delicious. I liked how we had a small sitting room in the hotel, besides the bedroom, with kitchen, and coffee pot, and extras. Bathroom was small, but the only thing I wish it had, was a hook in there for hanging up my gown. Sink was in the bedroom, but luckily we both got up at the same time. Mattress was a little soft in the middle. Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable stay. I found the lighting was adequate. I liked reading the history of the hotel, and what is used to be. It has been there since 1924.

Room Tip: We had a good room with the street directly below. we were on the third floor, and it was very quiet...

The PA looks lovely from the outside - understated, on a quiet residential street. It's NOT in the main downtown area (which you could believe from the website). That's quite a walk and uphill on the way back.
The staff are great - friendly and ready to help, but we were disappointed on the whole. Our room/suite was just so uninviting. Though there was a nice view down on the back fountain, the walls were painted poorly (splotchy) with the sleeping room in what I can only call meconium green (look it up). Decor looked like someone raided a cheap 2nd hand shop for unconnected bits and pieces. Lighting was unwelcoming. The sitting area was attached to the sleeping area (both cramped) by a strange narrow hallway. The bathroom had a tiny table and then empty space. We looked, but there were only hand towels for the shower. This was in a claw-foot tub which rocked when you stood in it so we almost fell and had to help each other.
Water got hot and cold indiscriminately. The toilet seat was too small for the fixture (very unpleasant).
The kitchenette WAS nice. No complaints there.
It just seems that for the money we spent, the room should have been a place we wanted to be, rather than one we avoided.

Room Tip: Try to get the view over the garden

We prefer smaller hotels, bed & breakfast accommodations The Princess Anne was just what we were looking for. The staff is very accommodating, the complimentary breakfast & afternoon wine & cheese were delightful We loved the different outdoor seating areas also. We will come back

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.
