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.

The Mayflower is outstanding! Everything was excellent! We wanted a quick mid-week break at the end of foliage in Connecticut and we had a very pleasant time. The staff was incredible, the grounds immaculate and the rooms gorgeous. We are going back for Christmas.

I was at The Mayflower Grace for less than 24 hours but it was enough to leave me feeling relaxed and renewed. The property itself is gorgeous; the weather was an unexpected blessing and we were able to take that mini 1 mile hike as well as enjoy cocktails al fresco at our very own fire pit. Whereas the rooms had (what I would classify) as a mature décor they were well- appointed and meticulous. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast dining experiences on-site, even something as basic as eggs seemed to be somehow elevated (husband stated his eggs were 'the best he'd ever had'?!) The largest takeaway for me was the genuine service, expressed from the moment we arrived (Richard) through check in (and the most thorough, yet appreciated introduction/tour ever) with Ashlynn and beyond. Please accept my apologies for not retaining more names, I'll chalk it up to "mom brain". As we pretty much had not left the house since March, the Mayflower Grace was a welcomed, luxurious and overdue respite. We most sincerely look forward to returning one day. Thank you again, The Brown's Read less

They anticipated our needs. Concierge is great. Leslie set up an itinerary for my wife and I prior to getting there. Mr. Benyisrael, General Manager, is very friendly and nice. He greeted us and took care of us during our stay. Bar is great. Restaurant (Tap Room) is delicious. We took a cocktail making class with an in house bartender. I forgot his name but he was super friendly and the class was great. plenty to do in surrounding area. Highly recommended for a couple (or family) who wants to get away for a few days.

My wife and I have been going to the Mayflower Inn each October for our wedding anniversary since 1995, and have seen many changes to this superb resort. Each year the Mayflower continues to be our favorite place for a get away! The location, the facilities, and most importantly the entire staff - from the doormen, front desk, their concierge, waiters, and staff all the way to their GM, Israel - they have built one of the friendliest and most professional team we've seen in our many travels worldwide! They go out of their way to make everything perfect, from room to meals, and there are many places and activities to see and do on site and nearby. We'd definitely recommend the Mayflower, especially with the new leadership team in place today, as a perfect place to relax, especially during this hectic 2020 season! highly recommended Read less
