We pulled into Mystic Conneticut after 6 pm. Quaint pretty little town. Had dinner at overpriced restaurant on Mystic river. And here is the finish to this story....Kim is sick. Flu/cold symptoms.

Of course I wasn't really all alone....I always love blogging and connecting with folks in that way when I travel, so thanks to everyone who followed me, even if it was just here and there! If you ever get a chance to take off and wander by yourself for an extended period of time (or even a short period of time), I highly recommend it!
... eateries try to lure you to them with samples.. turned out most of them were trying to make money by selling small samples for $5- 6, Not like the ones we have in Vcr but fun to attend.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Spa at Norwich Inn
The Norwich Inn Spa and Motel 6
The food, Good, the landscape beautiful, the room...... better off at Motel 6
We were in Rm 21 with a lovely view of the back of the kitchen and garbage area. It was not that bad, but we kept the drapes drawn, even in the day time.
My girlfriend and I spent a recent Saturday night at the Inn.
The last time we stayed here we were disappointed, but I decided to give it another chance, this time on a bachelorette weekend with 9 girls. Although the spa itself is well-appointed, has a varied menu of services, and decent to very good therapists, the inn itself has absolutely no attention to detail. On my last visit, we couldn't get a bottle of water anywhere - not from room service or even a vending machine. This time, there were no towels at the pool, no menus at either pool in order to call room service (had to go back to my room in order to place a lunch order). It seems as though they just don't care about making money - there is no attention to detail. Put bottles of water (for sale) in the pool houses and in the villas. Make it easier for people to get food when they are sitting by the pools. Some of the staff members, mostly the young, lower level people were very nice, but the woman in charge of housekeeping was very rude on the phone, and someone at the front desk couldn't be bothered trying to accommodate a late check-out for our large party. In fairness, I did finally speak with a supervisor named Pauline who was very helpful and did help us with a late check out while we waited for our transportation, but overall, our whole group was disappointed. And, although the spa is by far the best feature, there were some flies in the treatment areas (thankfully we got rid of one in my room before a body wrap!) and there was mildew on the shower curtain in my treatment room. The inn is owned by Foxwoods, and perhaps they make their money from the casino and the sale of their villas, so they don't really worry too much about the average weekend guest. My suggestion would be to stay at Mohegan Sun and visit the Norwich Spa for some services.
I love this property!
The spa at this property is wonderful!
The massage treatments and facials are the best I have experienced anywhere in the world.
The food is top drawer, well prepared, and the presentation is great!
This Inn is 75 years old, and truely combines the charm of the past with the convenience =of the present.
I can';t wait to return!
Had a wonderful time
My girlfriend and I recently spent a long weekend here and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the main lodge; it is true that the room was uninspiring but far from being a "dump" as others have described here. Our treatments were well done and we enjoyed relaxing on the grounds. There were many interesting classes to choose from, although the fact that they were a la carte was a little dissapointing given the expense of staying there. Mohegan Sun is only a five minute drive away, which provided additional options for restaurants and entertainment. Overall, a nice option.
the staff was friendly and accomodating. villa settings were beautiful.
spa technicians were good, although treatments were not interesting, spa felt more like a business entity getting to next client rather than retreat attending to guests. lack of attention to detail for the serious spa goer. ambiance was common: fake flowers, no candles, stuffy furniture, cell phones and noise apparently acceptable...whirl pools and steam rooms could have been cleaner. food was good, although should have offered better spa menu.
My wife and I had a fantastic time during our stay at the Norwich Inn and Spa. My wife really enjoyed and benifited from the Spa, she also had a lot of laughs with others down at the spa. I was able to go play a round of golf next door at the Norwich Golf Club, nice course! The room was very clean and comfortable and included a hot tube for two. We will definately go back!
Escape at the Spa at Nowich Inn
As I drove through the entrance of the Inn I felt as if I was far away from the troubles of a long week on the job. From my first step inside there were people to take care of me. Everyone in the lobby was so pleasant and informative. Even though I am ususally a quiet person that likes to avoid the lobby I always felt comfortable walking through especially in my Bathrobe. I had a wonderful weekend with great food, a beautiful room and the Spa treatments were outstanding. I never wanted to leave. You do not always find a place where you have a good food, excellent service, and devine accomidations. I highly suggest a visit!
Zen like Retreat
I really enjoyed my stay at the Norwich Inn. It is a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The Spa treatments, while pricey, are delivered in elegant surroundings with lots of time for rest and relaxation in the Mood Room, by the pool or in the hot tub. The rooms are fine. Clean, well appointed but not luxurious. In keeping with the concept of a New England Inn. I would recommend this stop to anyone venturing in this area. I much prefer it to the Mystic Inn which we have stayed at previously.
