Dinner: Teriyaki Bison Hanger Steak was just amazing. I never thought to do that combination! So well done. The turkey club was also a great classic and was well done. Breakfast: Eggs, Hash, English Muffins, OJ, Sausage, Coffee. Classic breakfast in a lovely location. We sat at the window overlooking the hotel's courtyard and it couldn't have been more perfect....

Located in the quaint town of Williamstown, you will find a picturesque property called the Orchard Hotel. Gala Steakhouse and Bistro is located within the hotel and served the guest as well as...

Slow to be greeted but smooth after that. Part of Couples Escape package. Received "chef courtesy" appetizer and chocolates with meal. Staff seemed a little unorganized but very friendly.

Breakfast was quite special this morning, perfect as a matter of fact. Service was attentive and cordial. A hidden camera must have been watching my coffee cup as the waiter always knew when a refill was needed. BTW, the coffee is excellent and this is coming from a coffee snob! My eggs benedict was constructed of substantial cuts of ham... More

Had a great dinner at the Gala. Get the Wagu beef, it is awesome. Our waiter, Sasha, was a hoot. Our table of 5 bonded instantly with him and his sense of humor. He made our visit even more enjoyable.

Great value, great food, and outstanding service. The surroundings are exactly what you would expect in an upscale motel in the middle of a well to do college community, the... More

When our sons could not make it to our house for Thanksgiving, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Orchards in Williamstown, MA. As part of the attraction, the restaurant, The Gala, offered a special Thanksgiving Day three course menu. We were in no hurry during our meal which helped because the restaurant was... More
