Grounds & buildings were very clean. Staff more than friendly & helpful. They even watched our injured dog while we got a spa treatment. Babis the bartender was great, highly recommend the cocktail making class.

Place is a complete waste of money - Auberge should be ashamed. You're better off flying to Europe, staying a week in the city or flushing 2k down the toilet as opposed to staying here for a night. My husband and I recently stayed for one night. We were greeted by a bellman who shamed us for asking for alcohol before 10am, met a person working at the spa who called me pregnant multiple times (I am not pregnant and was actively drinking the aforementioned alcohol). Kayaked in a dirty man made body of water that was no bigger than a pool and then waited for 3.5 hours for dinner (yes, we had a reservation). All while being bombarded by wedding guests who took over the "private" fire pits and walking trails. Our "upgraded" room features decor similar to that of my dead grandmas house and overlooked the parking lot. Our bathroom had zero privacy and was 100% in view of everyone walking through the lot. When we vocalized our concerns, the "head of guest experience" apologized while looking me up and down to see if I in fact was pregnant. They comped us $200 (Pennies on an overpriced room) and had the audacity to ignore an email I sent about the issues we experienced. Save your money and go ANYWHERE else!

If you’re looking to be coddled in Connecticut, you’ve arrived. The website doesn’t lie, the food, services and staff are excellent. The rooms vary in comfort and style. We were unhappy with our first suite, and the fabulous Alyna Bellantoni spearheaded our move to a lovely alternative. She was always on-hand, with a genuine smile and great enthusiasm Special accolades also go to many of the dinner staff. Especially Tomas and Franc who exude charm and professionalism. The spa is gorgeous and the services divine. Studio classes are also very worthwhile. A long weekend here is sublime.

This was our first stay back at the Mayflower after missing a few years due to Covid. I am happy to report it is the same exceptional place it always was, and they have taken the time to add in some nice main house renovations and upgrades. This place is just halcyon. It is the perfect getaway for people just looking to unwind. Rooms are beautiful, bespoke and done with care. Service is exceptional. If only real life felt so relaxed. Spa treatments are top notch and spa room is a place one could sit all day long and still ask for more. I only wish it were a little bit less expensive, so that I could partake more often!

What a fantastic trip to celebrate my husband's birthday. I was worried because there was a wedding planned but it didn't disturb us at all! This was the nicest staff I've ever experienced and the room was beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting the Mayflower. We had a superb experience.

We generally enjoyed our short anniversary getaway to the Mayflower (our goal was to have a restful break away from our two very young kids), though there were several areas that fell short of our expectations, particularly at this price point. The Good: * Our lovely, spacious room (#35) had ample closet space and a large balcony overlooking the Shakespeare garden. It was decorated beautifully, featuring a standout four poster canopy bed. (Tip: I booked directly with the hotel and specifically requested a renovated room, which they accommodated - even though it was not guaranteed to be available.) * Upon arrival, we were gifted a nice bottle of champagne and strawberries in celebration of our anniversary, which was a very thoughtful gesture. * All of the staff was unfailingly nice and sought to be accommodating when a request was made (though they were not necessarily proactive in that regard - see below - as has been our experience at some of the other high-end properties where we’ve stayed). * With its expansive, serene and well-maintained grounds, the Mayflower lived up to its reputation as a quintessential New England country retreat, and the common spaces in the Inn itself shared that country chic ethos. * We had three different spa treatments at The Well and thoroughly enjoyed each of them (the Full Body Reboot being our favorite and highly recommended). * All of our meals at the property were excellent, featuring fresh ingredients at prices that didn’t feel extortionate. We ate at The Garden Room restaurant three times, and the food was delicious without exception. The chef’s talent and the quality of the ingredients really shone through in each dish. The Less than Great: * While we very much enjoyed our room, the bathroom was completely underwhelming. The materials were nice enough, but the design was dated (and not in the antique boutique way), starting with the shower tub combo straight out of the 1990s and continuing with the outmoded hardware and fixtures. Also, the balcony while nice, featured worn wicker furniture that looked like it hadn’t been cared for in years. * We are very Covid cautious, and none of the staff wore masks when in close quarters with us or even thought to ask if we would prefer they do so when coming into sustained close contact - e.g., when riding the small elevator with us to bring our bags to the room or during turndown service while we were on the balcony. Worse from my perspective is that we had specifically asked the spa on two separate occasions (before arriving and when checking in) to ensure that our therapists were masked and were assured that that wouldn’t be a problem. Yet, each time we had to reiterate our request when meeting the therapists, evincing something between a lack of care to a total inability to follow through. * Two days in a row, we were woken up by a faulty fire alarm. Once is unfortunate but forgivable; the second consecutive time much less so. While apologies and comped meals were offered (and appreciated), there was no way to undo the abrupt wake-ups, which definitely put a damper on any hope we had for sleeping in while sans kids (i.e., one of the primary reasons for our stay). *Certain touches - e.g., quality coffee/tea in the room and some complimentary snack items - were nice, while others were distinctly lacking. For instance, while we were warned about the large tent that would be up in the Shakespeare garden prior to check-in, we didn’t expect to see six full trash bags in front of it when waking up after the first day’s fire alarm and have them remain there for the entire morning, further detracting from the view. Another small point, of the three windows in our room only one still had a screen and could be opened. Also, I understand the practicalities behind the $150 late check out fee we were quoted, but it veers into the territory of nickel and diming guests, which is a big pet peeve (at that point, either decline to provide it as an option or grant the late check out as a courtesy if the room doesn’t need to be turned imminently). Tl;dr - The Mayflower solid choice for the are but still has some ways to go before it can be considered a top-tier property.

The Mayflower has incredibly friendly staff with great hospitality. The grounds are lovely. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beds and linens are awesome. Our rooms were all slightly different - some were a little dated. Our only problem was malfunctioning air conditioning. A little uncomfortable, especially during a heat spell. The price is quite steep. Probably would return for a drink or a dinner rather than an overnight stay.

I have stayed at many Auberge resorts all over the world but the Mayflower experience exceeded all of the other experiences. If you want to understand what “good service” means, then you must have a stay at the Mayflower whose service was impeccable. The grounds are spectacular, the spa beautiful and large, restaurants wonderful, rooms so elegant and comfortable. We left the Mayflower for what we were thinking would be a nicer resort only to be disappointed after our Mayflower experience.
