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
On Sunday, December 9; The Heritage Hotel hosted a Brunch with The Beatles in The Timbers Ballroom. It was FANTASTIC! The “Beatles” were awesome, the crowd sang along and some even danced to the music, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were so warm and welcoming. The Hotel looked beautiful dressed in its Christmas decor. It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and I, as well as many of the guests, look forward to more events like this at The Heritage Hotel.
Spent a wonderful weekend here last week. The rooms were clean and the beds were super comfy. The staff was went above and beyond to accommodate our large and rambunctious group. They helped out with everything!!!! And great music too!!!
We stayed here in November. After checking in we went down to the Tavern for dinner which was good, and our server (can't remember her name) was very friendly. Our room needed to be updated as it reminded me of the 70's. The shower had mold down along the bottom caulking. The next day we left, and when we returned about 8:30 p.m. we discovered that our room had never been made up! No clean towels, sheets, etc. Unfortunately, when going to this area, there aren't a lot of choices in hotels. But it may be worth it to stay a little distance from town and drive in, just to stay at a better hotel.
PS - We were supposed to receive a free breakfast coupon upon checking, but when we got to the restaurant we realized that we had not received one. Another trip back to the front desk.......
We stayed there for two nights. The room was exceptionally clean, and when you couple it with the high ceilings, the room felt airy as though we were all alone in place all to ourselves. There were no sounds from any of our neighbors either, which added to the ambiance.
But whenever we encountered staff - whether it was the front desk, housekeeping, meal servers, or spa - they were extremely polite, helpful, thoughtful, and caring. I cannot recommend the Heritage any higher than what I did, but if I could have I would have.
I was so very excited about this hotel but it ended up being a disappointment. We always look for a nice pool that closes late so we can spend time outdoors and then come back for a dip before bed. Online the pool hours say 10pm but when we went down at about 9:25 it was already closed. The not very nice staff said they close at 9:30 and the gym at 10pm. we were sad n upset that we didn’t get to go in the pool. The room was ok. I do think they need to get new beds cuz it felt a bit old. Ofcourse there’s no fridge nor microwave. You have to pay extra for everything which sucks since you’re paying so much a night and an extra resort fee on top of that. Actually the hotel itself needs some renovation. Elevator looks way old and it’s super small. We played some pool at a small room in the back but it was very old and a bit freezing as well. In the morning we were woken up by banging of doors I’m guessing by the cleaning lady cuz she was the only one out there at 7:30am which pissed me off even more and we decided to go complain and check out of this place once and for all. Manager was nice but only gave us some credit which to me wasn’t enough but we said no and we checked out in the morning. So we didn’t get to enjoy the pool nor our stay. Place is ok but not for the price they’re charging and especially when you’re spending so much money just to sleep. Hope this helps you decide.
