Fodor's Review

Many people who visit the Biltmore mansion long to stay overnight; if you're one of them, your wish is granted in the form of this posh hilltop property on the estate. The seven-story hotel mimics the look of Biltmore House with natural stone and copper. French manor houses inspired the interior. Nice touches include afternoon tea in the library. The dining room (dressy) has large windows with mountain views and a massive fireplace. Menus deftly blend local and international

ingredients and flavors; a five-course farm-to-table tasting menu is $75. (A Biltmore admission ticket, 12-month pass, or current lodging at the Inn is required to dine here.) Some Inn packages include admission to Biltmore Estate for the length of your stay, free shuttles to all parts of the estate, and other activities.

Underwhelmed

Nice new facility. Rooms were nice but that's all. The side of the building we were on afforded no view whatsoever unless you count the parking lot and ground hogs. The other side of the building has good but not great views. At the time we were there in Aug. '05, they had a veranda you could dine on informally and there was a dinning room downstairs that was strictly formal. The Inn does not have the trappings of a strictly formal establishment.

We opted to eat 2 dinners on the veranda which were prepared in the main dinning rooms kitchen. Our meals were excellent and made more so by having one of the Biltmore Champagnes with our meal. We took the winery tour(?) I have the sneaking suspicion that the Biltmore wine is not made there. We saw no vineyards or grapes or production or ageing facility. Just a dusty mock up of a prodcution floor. They were very generous in the tasting room and thye have good if not excellent white wines and sparkling wines. Not so great reds. The restaurant at the Winery(?) is very hard if not impossible to get reservations for any time close to dinner or lunch. We had a late afternoon "linner". The Biltmore house/estate/inn/winery/grounds are wildly popular for some reason. If you have done much traveling I am afraid you would be underwhelmed for the price of admission. They are proud of the place and the prices reflect that. The best deal in the whole Estate was dinner on the veranda with a bottle of bubbley. I would go back for that.

Our getaway from Mouseland.

We are from the Orlando area, and head to Asheville to escape. Used to stay at the Grove Park, but now enjoy the Inn on Biltmore much more. It is a quieter, more elegant experience. We had a very large room with a beautiful view of the Biltmore Mansion. The food and service were first-rate. Not cheap, but worth it!

Worth a visit

I can recommend the Inn at Biltmore. I think the rooms are sized just right. Some rooms are truly huge. And the views are utterly magnificent if you are on the Biltmore Estate side--no views of traffic at all. Evening dining in the Inn's Dining Room has ranged from very good to unbeatable. In fact, I have had the absolute best filet (beef) there. The Inn is quite busy on the weekends and calms down on the weekdays, as you would expect. There's

plenty to do too. I strongly recommend Land Rover driving experience, horse back riding, and behind the scenes Biltmore mansion tour. If you are visiting the Biltmore Estate, the Inn is THE place to stay.

Good, but not Great.

This is a nice property, but could have been better. The rooms are a little on the small side. The view from the varenda is spectacular, as long as you don't notice the Ashville traffic in the distance. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The service was good. However, don't expect to be pampered. This said, the hotel is a good value at the $250 or so mark. We plan to revisit.
