Reviewed 20 October 2013

Wonderful, well appointed Victorian B&B close to all points of interest and great restaurants in the Asheville area. Rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was fabulous. Host and hostess were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Hospitality is the word that will come to mind when I think of our stay at The Lion and The Rose! The innkeepers couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We spent three nights with the Palmers and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the delicious cuisine, and the location. If we return to Asheville, we will definitely want to "pass a good time" at this property.

My husband & I felt so at home at Jim & Linda's B&B. They were very gracious and went beyond our expectations of a B&B. We loved the little extras, like the chocolates and snack available. The porch and the gardens were so relaxing. We would definitely stay at the Lion & the Rose again.

The owners of "The Lion and the Rose" Jim and Linda Palmer are passionate about their delivery of superb hospitality, cuisine and concern for their guests. They love their work and this extends to every fascinate of their business. Jim is enthusiastic about his cooking which is excellent, to say the least, and the maintenance of the facility falls within Linda's oversight, definitely first rate. It was a unique pleasure to visit the Lion and the Rose and the other people present were fine people from every location. Thanks for a great adventure!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Asheville. The accomodations were great, and Jim and Linda couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was delicious! We definitely plan on returning.

We stayed here for two nights and it was a delight from start to finish. Linda and Jim are warm and friendly and have really thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and welcome...from snacks to chocolates to coffee delivered outside your door every morning at 8 a.m. And the breakfasts were oh so yummy--if you are lucky Jim might be making sweet potato pancakes during your stay!

Just back from 3 nights at The Lion and the Rose and what a great place to stay in Ashville, not too far from Downtown but within a few minutes of a great little restaurant, Nine Mile, where we ate twice. We had a beautiful room on the first floor with a four poster bed and the most tasteful decor. The owners Jim and Linda were so helpful with directions and advice and printed out anything we needed. One of the nicest touches, and there were many, was the early morning cup of tea or coffee delivered to your room each morning. I also liked the pantry which was well stocked with everything you could want for a snack or late night cup of tea. I do hope that we will be able to visit again, there is so much to do and see in the area.
