“This old inn has lost its luster.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2009

I am sure that at one time this inn was wonderful, but no more. Our bathroom sink was so small that your feet got wet when you used the sink. The plaster walls and ceilings have been patched so often that they look awful. There is no restaurant. Don't be fooled by the outdated photos and brochure. The buffet breakfast was no better than what you get at the Hampton Inn. Old sitting rooms were almost empty of furniture and life. The grounds are lovely, but that was not enough to justify the very steep price. This was a total disappointment.

This marks our tenth summer trip to Seven Hills-- and we love it. The inn offers a choice of various lodgings in its 1911 manor house, its restored carriage house, or a newer motel-like building. All three buildings are set in beautiful grounds planted with perennials and flowering shrubs-- a lovely backdrop for a wedding or other event. We have been very happy and comfortable in all three buildings.
The charming new innkeepers Denis and Robin Gerson Wong will delight you at breakfast in the historic dining room-- you will leave the inn feeling that you have made new friends.
The inn is next door to Edith Wharton's estate "The Mount" and convenient to everything musical and cultural in both Lenox and Stockbridge.
We plan to return for our 11th summer next year.

We've been staying at the Seven Hills for many years and we're always very happy there. The grounds are beautiful and the owners are delightful. We recommend it very highly

The first time we went, it was happenstance, a well-situated place in Lenox that had a room available for the five nights we needed. It had just been taken over by new owners, Robin and Dennis Wong, and was trying very hard, but needed lots of work. But they (especially Robin who is there all week) were adorable, and we signed up for a return visit the following season, even bringing friends this time. What a wonderful surprise. The place has seen amazing development in only one year: wonderful rooms, lovely public spaces, lively and tasty breakfasts, super concierge service, and all the warmth you would ever want from a New England inn. This year we plan to return for a fall visit too. And of course we will be back (given only good health and the financial wherewithall) in 2010.

Finest fun and restful vacation we ever had. The inn's restful decor and the personality of Robin, the Innkeeper, made our latest vacation time most enjoyable. The time went by so fast we found ouselves hugging our hosts as we said our goodbyes. I would reccomend Seven Hills Inn in a HEARTBEAT!

The rooms in the motel stand as a Frankenstein-of-a room, with bedrooms that are clean-enough to sleep in, yet also present disgusting bathrooms. Firstly, the bedroom mattresses could be upgraded – as the springs are extremely loud – as well as the windows – as too many insects infiltrate the room. Though the rooms do not have central air, window air conditioners are provided; which, being aged, malfunction after a few hours of work. The bathrooms, however, are the worst part of the rooms, as un-removed mold resides against the side of the shower floors; a rotted piece of wood also stands against the shower floor [in the room we resided in – yet, I wouldn't conform this attribute to any other rooms]; the linoleum floor – as well as the toilet itself – was cracked, with nails used to keep the floor quasi-useable. Thus, if one were to wish to find a pleasant hotel [in the Berkshires], I suggest they look elsewhere.

Just returned from Lenox, having stayed there for 2 nights with 11 of my closest friends for my "bachelorette" party. We had a great time. The Inn Keepers were very friendly, the rooms ( we had 2 in the main house and one in the motel) were all very clean, the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was very good, especially the fresh blue berry pancakes on Sunday Morning. The local is fantastic, just up the road from Cranwell where we had a great timeat the spa, 5 minutes to Tanglewood and to town. The owners who I understand only have owned the property for little over a year have great plans for renovations, repairs and expansions. Which will take some time, but I will definatley stay there again. The next time with my soon to be husband! Thanks for a great weekend!
