Returned after 4 yrs and it's the same--dull. Golf course is beautiful, rooms are nice size but dull interior. Our room the corners of the windows and closet had spider webs, I cleaned them myself after leaving a note. If you did not understand the lay out it's hard to find the room with continental breakfast, some friends got lost....

This is not a typical hotel, in that the lodge is really only for parties and conferences. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were pretty big and roomy, but also pretty basic. The food we had was good. We ate 3 meals a day there and nothing was ever repeated.

Just came from an extra joyous wedding at The International. Going there from Providence RI, we were wondering why we were traveling to this seemingly no where place. When we got there, we understood. Both the snow covered golf course, the trees and the celebratory halls were quite beautiful. The food and service, especially the hors d'oeuvres, were delicious. I...

I have to disagree with the critical reviews - my wife and I attended a New Year's Eve party at The International and everything was close to perfect. The room was spacious and clean - my only criticism is, the room lacked a dresser, so there weren't really enough drawers for folded clothes; although for our one-night stay that didn't...

This supposedly high-class golf resort includes a tired hotel (the Lodge) and a very poorly trained staff. From the moment we made reservations for a group wedding event, they got everything wrong. When I called several months later to confirm the reservation, they indicated that I didn't have a "real" reservation, and that the number they'd given me was a...

We held our wedding at The International and we (along with our friends and family) all stayed at the Lodge. The experience was fantastic from beginning to end.

Bolton is very small and very beautiful. The International property is very nice for a wedding or other event. The food was very good and the various venues well appointed. The rooms in the lodge could use some updating (the electric outlets actually turn off when you turn off the switch at the door....know this if you are going to...

I knew the golf course at The International was supposed to be top notch so I expected an upscale hotel experience. Bad assumption.

Dear John, Thank you for your amazing feedback. We are overjoyed that you and your girlfriend had a great "stay & play" experience at The International.

If you want a third world experience, go to Bolton MA. The International restaurant has no room service--only takeout. The front desk person was very friendly, but was dressed in a track suit. I also could not find any teapot, coffee maker, or water in the room. The walls are very thin and I could hear every word my neighbor...
