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
Called last minute and the the hotel was very accommodating without price gouging. This hotel is huge. Golf course, banquet rooms, full on bar / restaurant on property. I wouldn’t say it’s a new Hotel but the property is very clean, front desk staff is friendly and prompt with check in process.
The Tavern resturant is locates just off the main lobby with full bar service as well as table service.
Rooms are spacious, clean and quiet.
It’s my first time staying here and have no reason to say not give it a try.
Excellent staff and location.The location is excellent.All the staff was caring and cordial.Will return soon.Well appointed room and clean.The grounds are very manicured.Allison and John in the restaurant and lounge went out of their way to accomodate.
This hotel manages to capture old world charm while still providing up to date amenities. The service is stellar, the rooms are nice size, and the grounds are well maintained. Definitely recommending this hotel if you're in the area.
Let me start off by saying the amenities for this hotel are above average! There's both an indoor and outdoor pool, a huge gym, games room, fireplaces, etc! However, that's where the positive part of the review ends. I booked this hotel, since I was getting married in the area and had a room block for many of my guests. I booked a suite since 1, it was my wedding night, and 2, the bridal party needed space to get ready in the morning. The total for 2 nights was over $600! The only difference between the suite and the regular rooms is a mini fridge and a living room space, that adds just slightly more room. The rooms themselves are extremely dated and the entire hotel has a very musty smell to it. It's also very dark in the rooms and the walls/floors are paper thin and I got very little sleep.
This was definitely not a $300/night stay! The main areas are so lovely but the rooms themselves need serious work.
I would also like to say that it would've been nice for them to not charge us for our wedding night, considering how much business we brought them through our room block. Needless to say, unless they go through an entire renovation, I will not return.
We thought we were staying at a resort but the joke was on us.The hotel is a disaster. This place should have been renovated at least 20 years ago. The rooms are musty, bedding is uncomfortable (especially the pillows), bathrooms are small and you hear everything in the hallway. Even the teenage boys complained about it! Needless to say we will not be back.
The only resort aspect of Heritage was the fact the lounge was open until late so we could get a drink. The bartenders were friendly and easy going. Breakfast in the morning was disappointing. Thankfully we had plans for the day that did not include the hotel so we decided to check out and take our chances on finding another 2 rooms for that night. Hotel didn't even question why we were checking out early.
