Take a breather at Heritage Hotel Golf, Spa and Conference Center, a convenient, modern property that provides prime comfort in a scenic setting. The hotel prides itself on its resort-level amenities, so be sure to visit the soothing namesake wellness center, as well as the New England pub-style eatery. At The Tavern, you can make your selection from a culinary menu that changes to highlight the season’s freshest ingredients. The same is true at Timbers, a breakfast spot with cathedral-style wood-beamed ceilings, a spacious stone fireplace and picture windows over the grounds.
The inn’s location in Southbury lends itself to outdoor activity, not least at the eponymous Dave Cook-directed golf club, Pomperaug, at which you’ll enjoy playing privileges. If you prefer outdoor to indoor exercise, alternate sessions at the well-equipped fitness center, laps at the saltwater pools and Pilates, yoga and Zumba classes with hikes around Southford Falls, Lovers Leap State Park and Webb Mountain Park. When tired from your day at work or at play, huddle around one of the six wood-burning fireplaces, shoot some pool in the game room, or – speaking of breathing – stop and smell the flowers in the Stone Garden courtyard.
Good to know
Please note that the outdoor swimming pool is only open during the summer months. The indoor pool is open year-round.
Your room is one of 163 convenient, contemporary and warmly decorated guest accommodations. You’ll sleep on a Sealy® pillow-top bed, while a desk and chair allow you to comfortably check work email, catch up the day’s headlines or check in with friends or family online.
You get two choices, dining-wise: Timbers, for buffet breakfast, among a cathedral-style exposed beams and picture windows that lend it an airy feel, and The Tavern. The second spot is a New England-inspired salad-and-sandwich spot, serving dinner each night and opening a bar on Friday and Saturday nights. Expect fresh local ingredients, in dishes like turkey clubs, veggie burgers, pesto caprese melts, flatbreads and chicken parm.
The all-new spa opens seven days a week for massages, facials, waxes, manis and pedis. A highlight of its menu is the Flowers Exfoliating Body Ritual, using Indian jasmine- and French lavender-based ingredients by red flower. The availability of an all-new athletic club will enhance your wellness experience – try Cybex cardio equipment and Pilates, yoga or Zumba classes in the Taraflex™-floored studio, and follow up a dip in the saltwater pools with a session in the saunas and steam rooms.
Southbury is a quiet destination in southwestern Connecticut, with a golf course – where you’ll enjoy playing privileges – and the beautiful Southford Falls. The area is home to other natural attractions, like Lovers Leap State Park and the six-mile Lillinonah Trail. You’re in New Haven county, so take a day trip to Yale, for a walk around the iconic Ivy League campus.
How to Get There
In town for a conference which we returned to for three years, the hotel has gone down hill but the staff is amazing especially Annie and Paige in the dining hall which provided breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their friendliness and service was wonderful as was room service. Unfortunately we witnessed a manager berating staff in front of guests that was completely inappropriate and since the conference was on trauma, completely traumatizing for those who watched. Best Western, put some effort in fixing the elevator, updating the rooms and keeping local staff who are so wonderful. This could be a five star resort if a little focused time, money and effort was spent
This resort/hotel is one of my very favorites! They were on the ball with everything, and made sure our hotel stay was magnificent! We could workout in the amazing gym, as well as, swim and tan outdoors in the salt water pool. The restaurant was wonderful and catered to our every need. All of the workers and the management team were wonderful and attentive. We were able to get a tour of the meeting space, and it has ample rooms with the newest technology available for every type of meeting or conference. The spaces are well thought out, and the floor plans make it easy to have multiple meetings/breakouts at the same time. I feel like this is a GEM of a property and one that you should really visit!
Really enjoyed our stay here, my husband and I were looking for a comfortable hotel with amenities- pool, gym, restaurant- on short notice and that accepted dogs as we had just sold our house and needed a place to stay while waiting to travel overseas, the Heritage suited perfectly! Jasmine at the front desk helped me to book and what was originally a 3 day stay turned into 10 but we really appreciated the friendliness, efficiency and overall experience. Annie who oversees breakfast is a treasure, treating everyone like family, and m,aking sure you're taken care of and all of the reception team are wonderful, warm, personable and willing to help anyway they can, especially Jasmine as I mentioned before. There are 2 pools, 1 outdoor heated saltwater seasonal which I enjoyed immensely every day at 6am. The Tavern had an assortment of dishes, perfect for when you don't feel like going out and the Heritage Cafe next door has delicious sandwiches for lunch at reasonable rates. I recommend this hotel to couples, families and anyone with a dog!
