Our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Staff were friendly and efficient. Room was very good -sized, nicely, if not newly, appointed and clean. We did not dine in the hotel but the bar had a good selection. Depending on when one is staying, rates can be rather high.

Although slightly faded, this hotel retains a certain elegance. Free tea and cakes greeted us in the quiet lounge area when we arrived (free daily from 3-5pm, along with free coffee in the mornings). There's an outdoor swimming pool which wasn't available in our early season stay, and free car parking. Our bedroom was enormous, almost a suite, with very... More

This property needs a face lift. It is generally well-intended but not making the grade. Doors and windows in our room did not work. The alarm clock had to be unplugged to make it stop playing music. They pipe music into the common hallways after a certain hour in the morning, which is quite annoying if you wish to sleep... More

During our recent college tour over spring break, we stayed at the Orchards Hotel in Williamstown. This place is exactly what I'd picture as a truly quaint and comfortable Inn in New England. The rooms are clean, large & nicely furnished, the common areas are nice, the excercise room had good enough equipment for a workout (needed because it was... More

We returned to the Orchards for another stay during Bay State Games. Once again we enjoyed our time here. We had a wonderful fireplaced room on the first floor.

I was up with my girlfriend from CT and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The cookies with turndown is a nice touch and everything is clean and warm. It is in the perfect location and the restaurant is delicious. Liz, our server, was very accommodating and truly an asset to the hotel! We will be back multiple times!!
