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 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

We were all hoping that a take over by Auberge would bring improvements but sadly this has not happened. The new staff seem untrained and inept and the new chef has created a new menu which is heavy, boring and lacks any creative spark. Even the bar food menu has not been spared by these silly changes.

As someone who has stayed there more than two dozen times I really hope that the Mayflower can find its way. The pending renovation won’t solve the basic problems of bad service and terrible food.

A nice place full of New England charm and history. Very comfortable and warm in January’s winter months. Staff while friendly are robotic and lack authenticity, they need to relax. The food in the restaurant and bar was generally disappointing, each meal failed to reach the heights of the price tag. Stay and enjoy but look to eat elsewhere.

Sleeping rooms are tired, service was the best from the door men and the dinning experience was just average. The best part of our stay was the spa services and staff. Overpriced and uneventful venue. Read less
