Posted By CH on 10/03/2015
We chose a wedding venue in Asheville, NC, and wanted to pick the perfect place for our family to stay for our wedding weekend. We took a day trip to choose the best B&B we could find. We thought we found the perfect place when we took a tour of Abbington Green. The owner personally showed us around, and spent about an hour showing us the different room options for our family and the amenities that he offered. We explained to him that we were specifically looking for a room that would be big enough to house two of our family members plus their parents because the parents would be watching the newborn that they would have at our wedding. He said that he had the perfect room for us, and showed us a room in the carriage house that had two separate rooms in it so that the two family members, the new baby, and their parents would fit comfortably. We loved it, and booked rooms soon after. However, when they showed up on our wedding rehearsal day and told him that they were getting settled with the baby and their parents, the owner immediately informed them that they could not stay there because Abbington Green had a no children policy in the carriage house. August is a busy wedding time for Asheville, and we had to frantically scramble to find two rooms for our family members and their parents at the last minute, after having decided on these rooms in March after having explained our situation to the owner and having him show us around personally for over an hour. Further, we still had to pay for the room at Abbington Green that night since the owner could not let it out to anyone else. It was a horrible experience the day before our wedding, especially since we had gone on for months believing that accommodations for our family were taken care of since the owner was the one to give us the tour and hear about our needs.

Response
I'd like to start by saying that it is never our goal nor our intention to disappoint anyone, and from your review I see that we have, and it is distressing to all of us here at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn. After our guests make their reservations, we send out pre-arrival questionnaires asking about dietary restrictions and beverage options. We do this far in advance of the date of your stay so that we have the opportunity to cater to our guests' wishes and preferences during their time with us. A questionnaire was sent the day you reserved and went unanswered. Approximately 3 weeks prior to the weekend your family was due to stay with us, you called us, and I once again inquired about the preference sheet and was told that you would send it to me. I verified that I needed this information for your mom and dad for the Hyde Park Suite, your brother and sister-in-law for the Eaton Square Suite and for your Wedding Planner for the Queen Mary’s Garden Room. Even then, it was not discussed that there were additional guests for the Eaton Square Suite, including a baby. I never did receive these filled out questionnaires back, and in this case, having them would have alerted us to your expectations, including the presence of a very young baby and an extra 2 guests. There was no problem when your family arrived to the Inn early, before our check-in time. If I would have known beforehand that your brother and his wife were bringing a baby, I would have referred them to another great place to stay. I was happy to greet them and check them in early, but I was surprised when I discovered that there were 6 adults and a baby checking into the Carriage House Suites, instead of the 4 adults that I have documentation that the Suites were reserved for. Our website states “The Inn is not generally appropriate for young children. However, families with well-behaved children, age 12 or older, can be accommodated in the suites in our Carriage House.” Despite this, we were willing to try to accommodate your family and even went so far as to ask the other guests staying in the Carriage House if they minded a baby staying in the Suite next to theirs. They told me that they were staying with us to celebrate an anniversary and to enjoy time away from their own children. Based on the fact that they were not comfortable with this suggestion, I had to make the best decision based on the comfort of all of our guests. Your Wedding Planner and parents stayed the two nights in the rooms reserved and the Groom stayed in the other suite for the one night. Your father was only charged for the balance on the nights that the rooms were slept in, and we absorbed the cost of the night that the Eaton Square Suite was unoccupied but previously reserved. What is important to me is catering to our guests’ needs and meeting and exceeding their expectations. We love being Innkeepers and pride ourselves on several things that exemplify the history, style and romance of Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn.
