Stories from Mayflower Inn & Spa

Chef April Bloomfield

Do Chef-in-Residence April Bloomfield on her experience at Mayflower Inn & Spa

When one door closes, another one usually blows wide open. And that’s exactly how Chef April Bloomfield ended up the current chef-in-residence at Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection. After her beloved Manhattan gastropub The Breslin closed down last March per COVID protocol, the British-born chef found herself in a position she hadn’t been in for nearly 30 years. “I've been working solidly since I was 16, so of course I didn't really know what to do with myself. I was going stir crazy and feeling a bit restless,” she says. “So when I got the offer I was in the right place to start spreading my wings.”

Do Celerie Kemble on her design vision for the Mayflower Inn and Spa

Kemble approached the redesign to Mayflower’s historic site with “great trepidation, respect and a sense of enthusiasm.” More than a hotel, she says the Mayflower Inn & Spa feels like someone’s home, with a sense of gracious hosting, comfort and personality. The idea was a refresh, not a demolition.. She picked out the things that were worth preserving, that had aged well and brought a sense of authenticity to the site, including mahogany four-poster beds and lamps, refectory tables, chinoiserie chairs, a papier-mache chinoiserie coffee table and game tables. She mixed in Scandinavian and colonial American design influences with sisal carpets, Turkish rugs, hand-crafted ceramics, wicker, as well as textiles from Schumacher, Sister Parish, and Penny Morrison.
