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

This is a great hotel located in a great position to visit various parts of the Berkshires plus stroll the beautiful campus of Williams College. Also has two excellent art museums. It is also relatively near a great outlet shopping center in Vermont. Apart from the excellent hotel restaurant there are some excellent restaurants nearby. The hotel is beautifully decorated...

We hired the Orchards to assist us in hosting an off site cocktail party for 75 guests. The staff did an exceptional job from beginning to end. Janell La Fleche, director of catering, was a pure delight to work with, she is highly professional. Ms La Fleche planned the layout and set up, food selections, linens and centerpieces and so...

Stayed here last year at this time while visiting Williams College. See no reason not to stay again next year. Nice room, good size, quiet. Grounds are nice and the location is convenient. See plenty of Williams stickers on cars in the parking lot. I see lots of comments on the decor being dated and I guess that's true but... More

Lovely hotel that features great character and a great restaurant (the Gala). I was there for work, and this is the hotel the local employees recommend. The rooms were quite large and the beds were fantastically comfortable. We were there during a slower time, but apparently it's a hot spot for people to stay while the theater season is on... More

The bones of this inn are beautiful but everything appears worn and tired, used and abused. It looks like a fabulous property, but it needs a firm hand and a thorough investment to make it a sparkling destination it deserves to be. This is a tourist area, a popular destination for the summer festivals and for the near-by college. I... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate the time it took to do so. Williamstown is a great tourist area with the Clark Museum, the Williamstown Theater Festival, and William College Art Museum. We have started to improve the hotel with investments in new carpeting, and new bedding. We will continue the renovations over the next year... More
