My wife an I have been coming to The Orchards Hotel since it opened over two decades ago. At tyhat time it was a luxury destination which made its guests feel like royalty in tastefully furnished. large rooms with great amenities. Unfortunately, this once showplace destination is in real need of an upgrade. While the rooms are still impressive in... More

This was a pleasent stop on a recent visit to see a concert at MASMOCA. If you are considering going to MASMOCA it is about a 15 min drive away, so don't plan on walking. The hotel staff was pleasent and the entryway, hallways, lobby, library and sitting area all seemed to live up to the price and charm. However,... More

Thank you Orchards Hotel for a wonderful weekend for me and 11 other friends. The rooms were perfect and the staff is exceptional. I highly recommend this hotel! The rooms are large and quiet. The central courtyard is lovely.

The orchards is unusually high-class in its huge and well-equipped rooms, traditionally elegant decor, and superior service. It is a nurturing hotel with a gracious afternoon tea and pastries. It's restaurant has excellent food and service as well.

I would give the Orchards Hotel three stars because of its decor's being a bit tired, and a general sense that the place needs a refurbishing of everything about its operations, as well as a feeling that the place is overpriced for the quality of its current accomodations and service. But I have to demote the hotel to two stars... More

My husband and I just returned from another stay at The Orchards. The staff is friendly and informative. The rooms are just beautiful. They are spacious and have an elegant "old-world" decor. High tea is served daily. As it was a rather warm day, ice tea and lemonade were served as well. The mattress and pillows were extremely comfortable. My... More

I suspect The Orchards was a nicer place some years ago, but it needs some freshening and upkeep. The staff was pleasant, the room adequate. I had dinner outdoors at the hotel's restaurant, which was a nice interior courtyard setting but not as special as it could be. The food was fine, but not memorable. Nothing wrong with spending a...

During a four night stay in August we found The Orchards to be clean, quiet and comfortable. Our “courtyard” room was enormous and while the rose-colored bathroom fixtures evoked an earlier era, everything worked well and was spotlessly clean. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We had an outstanding dinner at the on-site Gala Steakhouse which also served... More

The Orchards could be a great country hotel! Its ambience vies with the Cotswold country hotels of England. Its atmosphere is similar, but It does need updating.The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms large. Like at English country houses, an online booking site seems to imply that a prix fixe dinner is expected. Do not go that route! The three... More

The staff works hard to keep the property up. Rooms are quite large and well appointed, although the age shows in many corners of the room. We were pleasantly surprised to see a large room, one of the largest bathrooms during our stay. However, the spa and pool were not ready and open during evenings. It's a great stop, if... More
