The room was perfect, spacious and elegant. The bathroom was also quite large. Some nice touches - a Keurig coffee maker and a larger than average in-room refrigerator with bottled water and half & half for a good cup of coffee. Breakfast was well-prepared and delicious, nice range of choices, served exactly at the time it was requested. It was... More

What a beautiful, spacious room. Four poster bed, sitting area, beautiful appointments, large bathroom with every amenity. Perfect location right in town and proximity to all of the Berkshires. And such a nice man owning and running it. I give it the highest recommendation. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

This hotel is conveniently located on the main street of Great Barrington with easy parking and elevator access to get to the office & rooms on the third floor.

I hate to sound like a snob, but I am partial to five star hotels. The Barrington was a lovely, comfortable jewel for our weekend stay. All of the details you'd expect from a 5 Star hotel were beatifully addressed. Excellent service, impeccably clean, and right in town so you can enjoy this lovely town. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed our stay at The Barrington. Great location and decorated very tastefully. Not noisy like another reviewer complained, but you are on Main St. so there is some traffic noise, but nothing to worry about. Gaetan is a wonderful host and the breakfast is very tasty, if you'd rather eat elsewhere they will give you a $25 credit to... More

Arriving at The Barrington was a breeze, we got a pre-arrival email from Gaetan explaining the parking situation and how to find the hotel. After taking the elevator up to The Barrington, (it is on the 3rd floor of an apartment Building) we were greeted by Gaetan himself. Quickly showing us to our room and briefly showing us what the...

I took my wife on a surprise get-away weekend for her birthday. We'd never been to Great Barrington, but had heard great things about it. I booked a room at the Barrington, and it was simply perfect. My wife was delighted with my choice of lodging. The room was very nicely appointed and very, very spacious. It was extremely comfortable... More

This lovely small hotel is right in the center of Great Barrington. European-style, it is on the 3rd floor of a large bank building. It is surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants, and is the perfect spot from which to experience downtown Great Barrington! Our room was beautifully furnished and quiet. The proprietor was attentive and gracious. We will go... More

You are paying a steep price for nice furniture only. It is true that the room is handsome. It is on Main Street and still impossible to find. It is unmarked, the entrance is in the back on a street without a street sign. After driving around and around, I finally landed here. Not much sleep though. It is ne,t... More

The town has a strict ordinance about noise levels which are enforced after 8:00 PM so we were surprised to hear that the guest had experienced a noise problem so late at night. We are investigating this issue further. The Church St. sign at the corner of Main St. is indeed missing. We checked with the DPW and it is... More
