Stayed at the Orchards for the second year in a row at Christmas time. The staff is always welcoming. The rooms are large and comfortable (each room has a door bell, which my wife found charming). Great common room with fireplace, coffee and tea available all the time. The Gala restaurant is great, will document that in another review.

Nestled in the Berkshires the Orchard Hotel reflects the essence of this old college town. The unique architecture starts at the welcoming entrance and carries through to spacious rooms with gas fired fireplaces that add to a unique relaxing stay. The Gala Steakhouse restaurant and pub are the icing on the cake. The menu is eclectic and the service is... More

When our sons could not make it home for Thanksgiving, my wife and I decided to spend four days at the Orchards in Williamstown, MA. We have stayed there for weekend visits previously but this was our first extended stay. I can't think of words to adequately describe the experience of staying here. I just know that we felt so...

My husband and I needed an over night getaway and decided on travelling on Rt 2 for the fall folliage. We made a reservation at the Orchards Hotel and could not have been happier. The room was excellent (big) and so was the bathroom. Very nicely decorated, food for dinner and breakfast was excellent. Would definity stay there again.

Stayed 2 nights as part of a New England tour. Initial impressions were good, The bedroom was big, comfortable and clean. The only disappointment was the bathroom, which was more than a little dated. The public areas again were clean, tidy and welcoming, yet the decor seemed dated. The food was very good and couldn't be faulted. All in all... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this hotel and the food both for dinner and breakfast. Have read criticisms of the hotel but apart from minor points which did not affect our stay in any way we were more than happy about this hotel. In fact we would seek it out for a further visit when... More

We dropped in to see if it might be possible to spend the night after an impromptu Williams College visit. We had such a warm welcome by front desk staff (Jeremy - so sorry if I got this wrong!!) but you were awesome!! -who showed us an available room - and we booked immediately. Fireplace roaring in the library on... More

After staying at several inns on our tour of New England we were disappointed with our stay here. As we drove up to it it looked like a low key motel and had very little atmosphere. The look of the hotel was tired although clean. Our bedroom was large but the bathroom was very dated, an avocado coloured bathroom suite!... More

We stayed here one night. The inside of the hotel was very nice - very New England looking. Our room, which was a king, was gigantic and we had a courtyard view. Comfortable bed. The bathroom was seriously dated, compared to the rest of the room. The staff was too busy on the phone and doing paperwork to be of... More
