Mayflower Grace

Connecticut, New England

The hotel

At this luxurious country house, the emphasis, as always with the Grace hotels, is on exceptional service and comfort. Accommodation is divided between four charming buildings – the Mayflower House, the Speedwell Cottage, the Standish Cottage and the Allerton Cottage. All are truly sumptuous with plenty of modern touches to ensure you feel at home straightaway. At the heart of the estate lies Spa House, created to provide the ultimate sanctuary to sooth, refresh and rejuvenate mind, body and soul. As well as a wonderfully tempting range of treatments, there’s also a fully equipped gym and fitness classes at the Spa, ranging from yoga and Pilates to kick boxing. Other amenities include a tennis court and putting green or simply relax in the privacy of your room, watching a film from the DVD library. For all-American cooking, the Tap Room is ideal, with its sociable, laid-back atmosphere. If you prefer gourmet dining, reserve a table at the Mayflower dining Room, where fresh local New England ingredients are cooked with creative flair.

We just returned from a wonderful three night stay at Mayflower Inn & Spa. We stayed five years ago when it was Mayflower Grace and the improvements are incredible. The entire property has had a facelift and the staff seems to be all new. The level of service far exceeds most properties in the US, but was friendly, personal and not "stuffy." The hotel only opened 5 days before we arrived due to COVID-19 and there was an excitement from all of the staff that you could really feel and it was appreciated. Highlights to call out: 1. We were upgraded to a Mayflower Suite (room #22). It was incredible, although not one of the newly renovated rooms, but we did not mind! 2. The food has REALLY improved since our visit 5 years ago. The new chef has put together a great menu and everything we had was great. 3. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. From Logan greeting us when we arrived, Anthony's personal touches, Megan at breakfast, Orlando remembering our drink orders each evening to management who introduced themselves during check-in and stopped by to say good-bye as we were leaving. Improvements to call out (but did not take away from my 5-start rating): 1. The pool area needs to be improved. The furniture seems like it is from Grandma's lake house that does not get used much. There is no music playing and the landscaping leaves a lot to be desired. However the staff is friendly and accommodating. 2. Perhaps its because they have only been re-opened a few days... but as great as the staff is they do not function like a well orchestrated machine. Small things like every time food was delivered they placed the plate in front of the wrong person, parts of breakfast were not delivered together, we were promised an outdoor table for dinner by one person and then told by another there was not one available. It is not a huge problem, but it is for sure noticed and at these prices it needs improvement. 3. The $45/day resort fee seems high when not everything is open during COVID-19 reopening restrictions. There is extremely limited use of the spa amenities, no put-put, limited space at the pool, etc. I just think there should be a consideration at this time for the resort fee. We loved the area so much when we visited 5 years ago we said that we would buy a house near by one day. Well, the purpose of this trip was to close on our house only 10min from the property. We look forward to becoming "regulars" at the Mayflower! Read less

We loved our day spent in the spa, enjoyed two delicious meals in The Mayflower Dining Room and Tap Room and relaxed at night by the fire playing board games. The rooms were beautiful and the grounds were serene. We will certainly be back! Read less

My husband and I truly enjoyed our time at the Mayflower Inn & Spa. The property is beautiful and well maintained. The staff was incredibly gracious, attentive and helpful. We loved the Spa services, and the aquatics area and gym were great. The food was delicious! If you are looking for an ideal setting to escape and relax, go to the Mayflower!

We had an excellent and unforgettable weekend at The Mayflower Inn. We will certainly be returning and the quality of the staff, the location, and the food were all memorable and unique. It was our first time visiting and it lived up to its impeccable reputation.

We were on a "girls" weekend, traveling from NYC and Boston areas. It was a perfect place to meet. The service was really exceptional. The spa services (Swedish and facial) were the best I've had. Classes (yoga, pilates) were also great. We came off season and there was plenty to do with the spa, fitness classes, eating, drinking wine. The live pianist (with the sing-a-long that ensued later in the night) was the icing on the cake. We spent ALL of Saturday in the spa area. The relaxation room was divine, and we even had our lunch delivered to the spa! Read less
