I have been coming to this guest house for twice every month for almost 10 years for leisure purposes.i am really glad to say that this feels like a second home to me as I have a nice attic room to stay in and I have almost stayed in every room now and then. The rooms are clean and the... More

People say not to base your experience on one bad element but the bad element ruined our stay! I never normally complain as I have worked in hospitality and customer service before and know how hard it is to please people but this was disgraceful! We had come all the way from Manchester to visit a family member , both... More

We thank you for your comments and are extremely saddened to hear that you feel we are a racist and prejudicial establishment. This is a first for us as we have never had such an allegation levied against us. By your own admission, you did not realise we had a deadline of 8 pm for check in even though it... More

I stayed there for many times as I work in Southampton on contract bases. The hotel is good value for money. My room was clean and hot/tea including hot chocolate facility was provided for free in the room. The shared bathrooms and shower rooms are clean. Wireless internet was very good. Good hot English breakfast but not for vegetarian people... More

The Mayview is very good value for money. I booked a single room with shared bathroom, yes the shower is... More
