“A nice quiet retreat..”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

My wife and I enjoyed2 nights after Christmas.. We were very glad we opted for the Princess Anne after encountering massive crowds at the Grove Park. We walked up there and we're shocked at the crowd and unimpressed with the condition of the facility.

Room Tip: The street side rooms were minimally noisy as late night and early morning travelers passed by.. Not...

My girlfriend and I visited Asheville for the first time and couldn't have had a better first experience thanks to our stay at the fantastic Princess Anne Hotel. Needless to say, it truly lived up to all of the terrific reviews I read. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel itself has a great feel of both classic and modern...you feel like you're in someone's beautiful, historic home, but with very modern updates.
And, not to be missed is the complimentary breakfast. Normally we wouldn't go out of our way to get up early for a free breakfast, but I'm certainly glad we made the exception at the Princess Anne. It was really worth getting up for.
While the location is a bit of a walk to downtown, it was a nice way to get to see some of the quaint neighborhoods of Asheville.
We will certainly be back to the Princess Anne!

We loved our stay! The breakfast and hors d'oeuvres were amazing, and the staff were ready to attend to our every need. We loved our spacious suite and it was an easy fifteen minute walk into downtown from the hotel. This is the best hotel in Asheville!

5$ cab ride into town yet located in a quaint beautiful neighborhood and the feeling of community poured into the hotel as well. Anna at the front desk was delightful, helpful and accomidating. The other guests of the hotel treated us like family as soon as we steped in the door. The wine and cheese hour was a divine start to our stay! ( we arrived just in time to get settled and head down) . The room matched the elegant exterior and lobby. My husband had mentioned via email that we were on our honeymoon and we were upgraded to a suite! The suite had a nice sitting room - a functional kitchen, hallway, private bath and the bedroom in the back. This set up was PERFECT for us. If you are visiting Asheville be sure to walk around downtown! (its very safe!!) and if you're coming from the smokeys you HAVE to take the Blue Ridge Parkway . Its a MUST do. Also EAT & DRINK. everything's fantastic. Thank you for the memories Asheville and the Princess Anne!

Room Tip: we loved the view from the top floor !

There are 8 of us who gather each year preferably at a Bed and Breakfast which is cozy and comfortable for our long chats. We heard about the Princess Anne and although it is not technically a B&B, the atmosphere is graciously hospitable and there are relaxing spaces for groups to gather. The accommodations are spacious with many suites having sitting areas. The hotel staff are friendly, helpful and caring. The breakfasts are incredibly delicious and varied each morning. In the afternoon, the wine selection was anything but humdrum and the assorted hors d'oeuvres were plentiful. Needless to say, we are telling all our friends about the Princess Anne as the place to stay when visiting Asheville! Asheville is a lovely city to explore - so much to see and savor and fabulous places for dining and shopping! We plan to return often!
Thank you, Princess Anne, for a lovely retreat for our reunion.

Room Tip: The non-suite is a large room!

A year later, my boyfriend brought me back to the Princess Anne and we are so glad to have gone. We got there just after the cocktail hour but were offered our choice of wine. We went up to the room, settled in, and came down to find them waiting for us.

The stay was wonderful, as we expected. We enjoy that we can walk downtown and back without big problems. It isn't too far removed, but feels like it's own oasis.

Breakfast the next morning was phenomenal! My waffles were so big I couldn't finish them. The atmosphere is always so sweet and charming. The best part is that the staff remembered us a year later! In a way it felt like coming home.

We recommend Princess Anne tenfold and hope to return next year!

We had a wonderful time in this charming hotel. Our suite was very spacious, very nicely accented and had all the modern amenities one appreciates today. Spending some time in the library at the large open fire-place and enjoying some wine and hors-d'oeuvres was very relaxing and the home-made breakfast the next morning was delicious. Best of all, exceptionally friendly and personalized service and staff that is genuinely interested in making your stay a great experience.

Room Tip: 3rd floor is top floor and our suite was spacious and comfortable.
