I checked in to the Wellesley College club having made a last minute reservation. I needed a room with 2 beds and the staff went out of their way to accommodate, switching reservations around to make it happen. The location is PERFECT. The food was delicious and fresh, and the service impeccable. The color changes were absolutely gorgeous and i...

My king bedded room with a lake view was immaculately clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and there were no noise issues. The staff was very helpful and the continental breakfast was appreciated (they had hard boiled eggs and plain Greek yogurt available for some protein in what can typically be a carbohydrate heavy meal). I will be...

The Wellesley College Club is located on the Wellesley College campus. A lovely spot for lunch, looking out over Lake Waban. They serve a wonderful buffet Tuesdays-Fridays. It is a very welcoming spot for any size group.

Had a wonderful mini-retreat in October 2016 at the Wellesley College Club! Feels like walking back into the 1950's, but in a good way. Room was simple, comfortable, quiet and clean. Staff was helpful and efficient. Only wish there was a little bar service in the evenings...

The staff here is fantastic, location great for a get-away or retreat and small group meetings. The facility itself is super but the staff made it special. Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely come back and visit you .

The Wellesley College Club is located in a quiet and lovely area of the beautiful Wellesley College campus. My daughter and I loved the convenience when touring the school. Compared to many hotels in the Boston area, the price was much more reasonable, and breakfast was included. Our room was very comfortable, and all staff we encountered were very friendly...

We enjoyed two rooms at the College Club recently rather than stay at plastic chains dotting Wellesley. The rooms were cosy, wood panelled with functional bathrooms, overlooking the Lake and beautiful grounds. The front desk was very helpful. The rooms and public areas were spotless. My only complaint would be about the Continental breakfast that offered a sad assortment of...

I grew up in Wellesley and learned to swim in Lake Waban (which is part of the campus), and staying at the Wellesley College Club was a trip down memory lane. There are a limited number of rooms, all very clean, and the staff are friendly. We paid $175 / night, which may seem a bit high, but it's the...

This is the ideal place to stay if you are at Wellesley. It's quiet and serene and perfect if you are not looking for all the bells and whistles of a hotel. The rooms are more on the small side but that's not an issue with us. Your stay includes a complimentary continental breakfast too! Please note that if you...

My stay at the College Club was prompted by its close proximity to an admissions event at Wellesley College. Upon arrival, I was taken aback by the picturesque beauty of the surrounding lakeside landscape which also included Wellesley College's architectural wonders in the backdrop. As a New York City resident who frequents beautiful Westchester County, I would have to list...
