We have been travelling to the Wright Inn regularly since 1990 (this was our 12th stay or so). It continues to be THE bed and breakfast in the Asheville area. The Victorian charm is irresistable and the house continues to be in impeccable shape. The current oweners, Bob and Barbara Gilmore, are our very favorite of all the fine owners over the years. We stayed there again very recently and it was refreshing and wonderful. The cleanliness of the house (upgraded flat screens, too!) , the friendliness of the staff, and the uniqueness of each room is only surpassed by the hospitality extended by Bob and Barbara. We highly recommend this as your stop-off point if you're looking for a meaningful experience in a first-class B and B at an affordable price!

The Wright Inn and Carriage House was the perfect place for my husband and I
to stay for a leisurely weekend get-away in Asheville, NC. Our room was immaculate,
and the mattress was heavenly. Included in our package were tickets to the Biltmore
Hotel.

Innkeepers Bob and Barbara thoughtfully asked about any dietary restrictions
we had prior to our arrival. When I explained that I could not have sugar, and was
dieting, and prefered turkey breakfast meats, the response was "no problem".

And so it was that my special needs were catered to during our two elegant
candlelight breakfasts at the Inn. The other guests at the hotel were a lovely
group of interesting folks, who we got to chat with during our breakfasts together,
and on the big charming Victorian front porch at the Inn. (Also, it was super easy
to log onto the wireless internet at the Inn with my laptop, to checkout local restaurant reviews and descriptions of attractions. (Don't miss the Tupelo Honey Cafe on College Street for amazing farm fresh local fare!)

Asheville is a great town to spend a weekend or more, with it's terrific restaurants
and shops, local gardens (such as the NC Arboretum: not to be missed) and of course all the colorful street performers/and action that Asheville offers. Take the Purple Bus
around town for a fun local tour with historic highlights and lots of laughs! Also be sure
to drive/and or walk around Asheville's Montford historic district (where the Wright Inn is located). It will charm you and you'll want to come back for more!

I stayed at the Carriage house for 3 nights with my children 8 and 11 and it could not have worked out better! The delightful manager had wonderful suggestions of activities for the kids and even had the name of a babysitter. I would highly recoommend this Inn to all my friends!

We liked our room well enough, we had The Powell Suite, and the inn is very pretty, but there was some sort of assistant whom the words "southern hospitality" should never be connected to. As soon as she found out that I ran a dance studio, it was not possible for her to be ruder. On our first night we were alone and in the house and lo-and-behold the air conditioning was off. Not in the basement where she stay but on our floor. One morning we did not eat our breakfast (our dietary needs that were outlined when we made our reservations were ignored) so the next two days no breakfast for us. She also made it a point to ignore anything I said to her at all even good-morning, and then would make a point of talking to someone else in the room. The inn's on the bus route so you hear the bus late into the evening, but otherwise the building itself is quite pretty. Although the owner apologized and offered to make it up to us with a free stay (that never materialized) my wedding anniversary was none the less still ruined by the constant bad behavior of one employee.

We pride ourselves in the relaxed, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere that radiates from our Inn as well as our staff, but no matter how hard we try, personalities sometimes clash. I feel this was the case with this guest. Even though I do not want to comment on the accuracy of the facts stated on the review, there is one statement that must be addressed. Upon discovering this issue, I immediately addressed the situation with the guests and a Certificate for the agreed upon resolution was immediately sent. We also made a telephone call to the guest restating our apologies and confirming the address. I am also at a loss in trying to understand why it took almost 4 months for this issue to resurface. I guess I was mistaken when I presumed that everything was in order. We always do our best to make sure that everyone is Completely Satisfied with their stay at The Wright Inn and Carriage House and should this guest decide to return, we will do our utmost to ensure that their stay is beyond pleasurable.
