We were very comfortable in this hotel, the only problem being the rather old fashioned and very noisy air conditioning unit, which we had to switch off at night if we wanted to get any sleep.
We didn't eat dinner here, but the breakfasts were good, with freshly made eggs and waffles available.
The great thing is how close the hotel is to the centre of Asheville, with everything being within 15 minutes walk and plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby (especially if you go out of the back entrance, across the patio.) A plus is that the Thomas Wolfe House is just across the road too.
Reception were very helpful with safe deposit and storing bags on the last day and the little gift shop is great - I bought some unique earrings and a necklace. The lounge area is a great place to sit and drink one of the complimentary coffees. A bit warm near the standalone fire when we were there, but would be great on a colder day.
There is a computer where you can book in online for your flight, but no business centre if you want to surf the internet or check your emails and you don't have your own device with you.
