I was very happy with our stay at the Biltmore Village Inn. Excellent hospitality and food!! The views of the mountains from the porch were AMAZING! We will definitely be returning.

The Inn is beautiful and lovingly cared for. Our room was spotless, nicely decorated, with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast was a culinary experience not to be missed and we looked forward to a masterpiece each morning. We chose the Reed Room to avoid stairs and, being on the 1st floor, was quiet and peaceful. Monica was attentive to our every need and knew our wants before we did. We enjoyed the compatible conversation with the other guests during breakfast as well as cheese & wine in the afternoon.

Absolutely beautiful. The bed and linens were fabulous. Breakfast was incredible. Afternoon wine; cheese and cookies was not to be missed. It was peaceful and secluded yet within minutes of everything. Could not ask for more.

The host is trying very hard to make a poor location seem like a luxury destination. He is attentive and fun but the illusion of a view and a good location are just that. This could all have been brought up to par if the breakfast was edible. Your are given three courses and no choice and all patrons are required to dine at once. There was no discussion of what you wanted and since we misunderstood the cold thin French toast seemed skimpy. Then came the under cooked backed pear in the middle of spring followed by the weird variant of eggs Benedict. There is a great DVD collection and the room had 3 TV and was private so our romantic weekend was still a success. The wine and cheese and the cookies are good so with an overhaul on the breakfast this can be saved if you don't mind being on a back street in an iffy location.

My husband and I could not have found anything better. Our hosts were so gracious. The house was beautiful and very clean! We could walk to the shops and eating places. We greatly enjoyed the two day pass and candlelight tour of the Biltmore Estate that we included with our stay. Bob took care of all the arrangements for us. We highly recommend this place for anyone. Stay a few days. You will be glad you did!
