Have stayed at Grove Park, Biltmore Inn, and many other places in Asheville; this is the best.

We considered many locations before choosing the Princess Anne and we did not make the wrong choice. Truly the best part of our visit was interacting with the staff. We stayed in a deluxe suite (room 202) and it was delightful. It was like having our own little apartment that was only a short drive to downtown. The handmade chocolate truffles that were left in the room were awesome! The b&b was close to Biltmore and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This place is highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed at the Princess Anne in Asheville NC and we can't say enough good things about our stay. From the super friendly staff to the beutiful rooms every detail is taken care of. When we arrived there was a hand written note with a bottle of champane waiting for us in our room. Then as we explored the wonderfully restored room we found choclate truffles just for us. The bed was wonderful, the marble floor was perfect the stay couldn't have been better. Asheville must be very proud to have a jewel of a Hotel like the Princess Anne. The best representation a city could have. Also don't forget to ask the staff about the ghost stories. JUST PERFECT! We will definately be back here again and if your smart you will stay with these fine folks.

We so appreciate your kind words about the Princess Anne! I'm glad you chose to treat yourself to the Grande Suite with marble floors in the kitchen and bath, not to mention the clawfoot tub! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It really was our pleasure to see you both again.

My husband and I wanted to stay at an independently owned place for our visit to Asheville. Princess Anne appealed to us because it is more affordable than many B&Bs and not as "frilly." Slightly creaky floors and exposed pipes (painted to help blend) are part of the charm. So is the old-fashioned elevator with its metal gate inside door and non-automatic outer door. The breakfast was good, just not fantastic. The afternoon wine reception helped encourage interaction with other guests. Even though it was in the upper 80s/low 90s, the hotel is on a tree-lined residential street, so it didn't feel too hot - we sat on the comfy side porch in the afternoon and evening just relaxing. What really helped make our stay great was the staff. They made recommendations for scenic drives (to/on the Blue Ridge Parkway) as well as for dinner and things to do in/around Asheville - including where to park and a way to walk that was pretty & avoided the interstate off/on ramp. Little things helped make us feel that at the Princess Anne we really were guests - notwithstanding paying. : )

We stayed here for four days in a one bedroom deluxe suite - it offered plenty of room for two of us to throw our stuff around, be able to stretch out, and not step on each others toes. Our goal was to hike and spend the remainder of the time downtown exploring the many brew pubs. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of downtown (appx. 1 mile) but we were lazy and drove. The room was clean, the staff extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfast quite delicious and substantial enough to sustain us through the early afternoon. We loved our stay here and will be back.

Thank you for the great review. The One Bedroom Deluxe Suite is our standard room, and with its separate bedroom and living room, we think it's perfectly suited to couples. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

we cannot say enough about this place- helpful & sweet staff, lovely rooms, well maintained property. wine and cheese in the afternoon, gourmet breakfast all included; they even sent us a handwritten note to thank us for staying with them. not too far a walk in the cooler months but a 5 minute drive into downtown asheville, so really not out of the center by much. can't wait to go back!

Stayed with my sister at Princess Anne on July 12, 2010, while househunting in the area. The hotel lives up to the favorable reviews seen on tripadvisor. We checked in just in time for afternoon wine and cheese (delicious!), and enjoyed sitting on the back porch chatting with a few other guests. Our room was a suite style, with a separate living area with small kitchen, tv, table and chairs. A shower/toilet bath separated the living area from the bedroom. Bed was heavenly with lovely linens, and sink is in bedroom, so one of us could wash up while the other was in the shower. The air conditioning in the rooms was surprisingly excellent for an older hotel. The only caveat worth mentioning is that the floors are pretty creaky/squeeky, so if you wander around at night (couldn't sleep due to nerves about making an offer on a house that day), be prepared. We walked around the neighborhood for an hour the morning of our departure, checking out the charming houses in the area and working up an appetite for the delicious breakfast (included) in the dining room. I had the breakfast casserole; my sister had the spinach biscuits and eggs with bechamel sauce, leaving us both happy and full. I hope to come back someday (though I did end up buying a house in the area, so guess I'll recommend the Princess Anne to visiting friends instead). Thanks for a great stay.
