Nestled in a location celebrated for its scenic vistas and convenient access to local shopping, The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa garners a mixed bag of feedback. While the traditional charm and cozy ambiance are frequently lauded, some guests find the hotel's offerings do not justify the steep prices, pointing to outdated rooms and inconsistent service. The amenities, including a praised pool and spa, receive a divided response due to maintenance issues. Despite the polarity in opinions, the cleanliness of common areas often receives positive remarks.

My family and I had a lovely time at the Equinox hotel this February vacation. The pool was absolutely fabulous and sooo beautiful. My three children had a wonderful vacation! We enjoyed complimentary Lavazza coffee each morning in the lobby! The hotel staff was very friendly. We can’t wait to go back again soon.

Hotel's Favorite
Last week my siblings and I took our mom for a two-night stay to celebrate her 90th birthday. It was a great choice to come to the Equinox! The accommodations are perfect: up-to-date, clean, bright, spacious and pretty rooms; and public spaces are large, warm and welcoming, the blazing fires in the fireplaces a really wonderful touch during these wintry days and evenings... as is the much-appreciated all-day coffee and tea service. We enjoyed dinner the first night in the Chop House restaurant, pricey and absolutely worth every penny; and the second night had cocktails and bar bites in the Marsh Tavern after a hearty lunch in town. The food at the Equinox is sophisticated and very well-prepared, including the gorgeous fruit, cheese, and champagne amenity tray. And for the trifecta: the staff is terrific from check-in, to restaurants, to help from the front desk, to the gift shop, to speedy and accurate check-out. These folks seem to love their jobs - they're always smiling and happy to help. Special shout-out to Leah in the restaurants, we'll long remember her personal warmth and super professional hospitality skills. Our family getaway was wonderful and so is the Equinox. We'll definitely be back.

We had a fantastic mid-week stay at the Equinox, which is a great base for skiing at Stratton or Bromley and enjoy some of the excellent restaurants in Manchester. The staff were very friendly & efficient. Our room was comfortable and spacious and the main hotel building has a range of wonderful spots to hang out and relax. The Spa is a great asset with nicely appointed locker/changing space (with steam room & sauna) and extensive exercise facilities. Well worth a stop or for visit for a quick getaway.

The hotel is ok. The room has a slight odor, but it’s manageable. You aren’t sure when the restaurants or bars are open. And we were told there was a concierge but when we got there there was a note about only Fridays and Saturdays. It’s confusing. But otherwise it’s nice. The real problem is with other guests managing their children. The pool is overrun with kids, that s understandable, but a hot tub is for people 16 and over to relax, not for your 6 year olds to do laps. But what do you expect from these “high society , very entitled New York mommies and daddies who let their kids scream yell and run through the hallways. We felt bad for the staff, every three seconds some entitled wife was complaining about the most ridiculous things. My tip. Make sure kids are in school when you go. Note to the establishment you may want to put up signs to be mindful of other guests.

Stayed at the Equinox this weekend for the second time with my family. There are so many great things about this hotel - big rooms, wonderful common space lay out with several beautiful “living rooms” to hang out in, a game room, etc. However, the service has markedly gone south since our last stay exactly two years ago. Even giving significant grace for the fact that we stayed over the very busy President’s Day weekend, the service we experienced dining at the onsite tavern was the worst we’ve had on memory. After being sat for dinner it took over 40 minutes and getting up to go try and find a sever several times to even get so much as water for the table. Not only did it take forever, but when we finally did get service the team was so clearly frazzled, not at all apologetic and frankly unhappy. We were given attitude for seeking out service (politely I might add). It was bizarre as there were only about 4 tables sat in the Tavern. Really not many people, just no staff to be found. Again, I get that it was a busy weekend, but management should have planned ahead and staffed up accordingly. The last time we stayed was over the same holiday weekend and had no problems. We want to love it, but management, please pay closer attention to service.

Kristin, It's regrettable to hear about the service issues you encountered during your recent stay, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. While we're delighted that you enjoyed the spacious rooms and inviting common areas, it's concerning to learn that our service fell short of your expectations. Providing exceptional service is a top priority for us, especially during busy periods like President's Day weekend. Your comments have been duly noted, and I'll ensure they're shared with our management team for further review and improvement. We value your patronage and hope to have the opportunity to restore your confidence in us on a future visit.

Beautiful Hotel, beautiful spot. When you check in, wander through the main rooms on that floor. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and well appointed. The food is great and served in the bar as well as the dining room. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had a great conversation with the HR Manager and the General Manager was very helpful. If you go to the Marsh Tavern make sure you spend time with Claude, the best bartender who is super friendly and makes great drinks, including a killer Martini. We regularly visit for a couple’s getaway.

The mattress hadn't been rotated and sleeping on an incline with 3-4 pillows just to be level... The phone wasn't user friendly, couldn't figure out how to work it until our last night there. The television remote wasn't operating the television and had a screw on the battery case to change batteries. Last but not least, the biggest inconvenience was that our room (Room 437) did not have any heat, room temperature ranged from 64-67 degrees and blew cold air. Maintenance was there every day to no prevail, although a space heater was offered the last night.

Our daughter held her wedding and reception at the Equinox, and it was simply magical. All of our guests were just thrilled with the resort itself, the courtesy of the staff, and the quality of the food. We could not be more grateful to your wedding coordinator, Kelsey, your executive chef and his banquet team (particularly Jesse), and your entire front desk and bellhop staff. They were all extraordinarily friendly, accommodating, and helpful with every detail. Your bellhop staff, in particular, were just simply amazing! Our thanks for an amazing weekend!

I found a deal on Travelzoo and decided to take advantage of to make a weekend trip. I'm so glad I did. My first impression upon entering the hotel was its charm. From the checkin desk I could see the lovely fireplace, a room beyond it with hot beverages and large glass doors leading to the hotel grounds. We were met with very friendly, cheerful staff and I appreciated their enthusiasm. We stayed Saturday and Sunday night and the place was rocking on Saturday. There are two restaurants, and a bar. On Saturday night, the bar featured a singer and outside the bar the firepits were roaring. There is a heated, lap pool and a hot tub. The hot tub was always packed so I waited until everyone checked out on Sunday and had the tub to myself. It was glorious. There is a second fireplace in the library which also contains books and game. We had two rooms. The first was quite large and charming with high ceilings and had everything we needed. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and the bath towels were really fluffy. The heating system didn't work so we were moved to a different room, which was even bigger! Because of the age of the hotel there is lots of hallway light and noise that comes into the room. On Saturday afternoon/night and Sunday morning, the constant door slamming by other guests, loud conversations in the hallway and yelling children were almost enough to make me want to leave. But Sunday night was delightfully quiet. However, we were in the front of the hotel so the road was noisy. That doesn't bother as much because road noise is not due to inconsiderate guests. The 4-star, as opposed to 5-star review is for a few things: 1) the noise from inconsiderate guests, 2) housekeeping is not daily. I personally feel the onset of Covid practice of minimal housecleaning has to stop unless hotels mean to lower fees by at least 50%. I feel part of what I pay for is to have my bed made, trash emptied, towels replenished every night that I stay. Here's my plea to every review I write - please resume pre-Covid services.

Hello, it sounds like you had quite the adventure at the Equinox! I'm thrilled you stumbled upon our deal and decided to seize the opportunity for a weekend getaway. From the moment you stepped into our charming lobby, it seems like you were whisked away into a world of cozy elegance. While I'm delighted you enjoyed the lively atmosphere on Saturday night, I understand the frustration with the noise and hallway commotion. Your feedback about housekeeping is duly noted, and I assure you we're always looking for ways to enhance our guests' experiences. Hopefully, your next visit will be just as enchanting, minus the rowdy neighbors and with a touch more tranquility!
