My husband and I just returned from a 2-night stay at the Mayflower to celebrate our anniversary. I booked the trip on a whim, after reading a brief blurb about it in a travel magazine. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The facilities are all outstandingly maintained - rooms are fresh and very comfortable, gardens and grounds are top notch. Staff was all extremely friendly and warm, definitely not stuffy like other high-end properties can be. Great little touches like fresh apples in the room and main building, a selection of games and books, and umbrellas available everywhere. Food was generally good, although the selection was somewhat limited. I was starting to get a little bored of the choices (which did not change) by day 3. Cocktails were very pricey (think $15), but we were pleased at the selection of reasonably priced wines. It seemed that the inn was full while we were there, but nothing ever felt too crowded or cramped.
Although we appreciated having the toiletries in the bathrooms presented in large "environmentally sensitive" bottles that get refilled, we were surprised to find multiple bottles of water available in the room. The water was free, which was nice, but if they're trying to be environmentally sensitive, isn't moving away from bottled water the current trend?
Overall, we had a great trip. Will definitely return in the future over a weekend in order to try the spa.
