My husband and I stayed here based on a few recommendations on Trip Advisor. Maybe those folks got lucky ... but we sure didn't. The facilities are nice enough, but the ownership is in need of a serious upgrade. Let's see ... the words overbearing, fake and pretentious come to mind. Upon arrival, we just wanted to relax, but instead found ourselves being regaled by 30 minutes of trite, obnoxious stories involving a move from New York to "the country." It was like finding inlaws I'd never had, or wanted. That said, the staff was decent enough, and the city itself is wonderful. Asheville has plenty of beautiful inns ... I'd suggest one that doesn't come with so much baggage as the Ablemarle. Stay away.
