This yellow mansion a few blocks from the town of Mystic is charming and well run. The service was always attentive and kind. The mansion is like staying in a home and overall it was a very nice experience. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious and nice. I would say the carpet in our room had seen better days but overall we liked our room and the overall feel. The hotel is very pet friendly and again the staff were all great. The mansion resides in the town of Mystic which is really nice and has many good restaurant options. Nice town, nice mansion and worth a visit.
I travel a lot and this place has always been top notch. Every employee goes over the top and the experience has never been anything but perfect. The hotel's location in town makes it a great couples getaway for 3-4 days.
This was our second stay at Spicer Mansion and, again, it was lovely. This historic property is beautifully restored with museum like rooms on the ground floor and generously sized guest rooms upstairs. There is also an attached restaurant with an outdoor terrace set in a spacious mature garden with a fire pit. And in the cellar is a cozy bar. Guests are welcome to use all the spaces and have drinks, meals, play games, and relax anywhere in the Mansion or on the grounds. This time we stayed for five nights and had dinner at the hotel several times. We were pleased to see that the cocktail and dinner menu is updated daily and were impressed by the dishes served-in particular the memorable lobster bisque. All of this would make for an excellent hotel stay anywhere. What makes Spicer Mansion unique is the very personal attention to the guests’ needs. Hotel staff contacted us prior to arrival to see if we had any requests. When we said we would arrive by train, they offered to pick us up from a station in Mystic or New London, which we happily accepted. Upon arrival, we were greeted on the platform by Brian Gates who is the owner/manager. Brian drove us to the hotel, offered us sparkling wine upon arrival, and brought all the luggage to our rooms. Later during out stay, when we were going to call for a car to take us to our son’s college graduation, Brian offered us the use of the hotel’s Ford Expedition so that we would not have to worry about finding a ride home from the ceremony. He said we could keep the car as long as needed. Later during our stay, Brian suggested an outing to historic Stonington, which is nearby. He dropped us off in town and we spent a few hours walking around the beautiful old streets, shopped, and had lunch on the pier. When getting a car service to pick us up proved difficult, we called the hotel and Brian came from his home to drive us back to the hotel. This level of personal service is exceptional and we were happy to find in it charming Mystic, Connecticut.…
We needed a quick get away and the Spicer Mansion was the perfect spot for one. Everything about the place was spot on, from the architecture to the amenities to the location. The absolute best part of the Spicer is the staff. Every single person was pleasant and attentive. Without a doubt we will be back.
We wanted a quick getaway and found the beautiful Spicer Mansion. Our stay was nice and we enjoyed the historical building. The Mallory room was lovely. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed in the hotel staff. Our tour was boring and lacked excitement. I read more on the website than I learned from the host. We never received our complimentary Prosecco toast and there were no snacks offered as promised in our contract. We did enjoy the charm of the mansion and the beautiful view on the 3rd level viewing area. The speakeasy made yummy drinks and had rustic charm.
