I've stayed here on and off 2-5 days per week for 2 years this week as I work away from home in Southampton. This place is excellent value for money, The landlady Elena is very friendly and has helped me a lot whilst I travel. Breakfast is great, rooms are a quarter of the price of local hotels but please... More

The guest house receptionist (Ms Ilinor) told me that it will cost me £65/night, when i arrived there with my child the lady started by saying 'I am not throwing you off but you need to pay me £30 extra per night for the same room'. Being text book style rude even... More

I booked the Mayview last minute .com on the price alone. I was not expecting much, but the Mayview delivered a very good quality of service. I have paid a lot more and got a lot worse in the past. The Mayview is very good value for money. I booked a single room with shared bathroom, yes the shower is... More

We find it upsetting when guests reassure us that everything is fine when asked repeatedly if they are ok and then they post reviews like this. We have said it over and over that we are a mid terrace converted Victorian property and not purpose built . We are a b and b and not a hotel. We have no... More

The Mayview guest house went beyond my expectations. The lady that ran the place was very friendly. The room was veryclean and confortable and had much more character than a chain hotel. Would stay again.

I stayed here as a overnight stay as down in Southampton for work. I have been lucky enough to stay in 5* accommodation in the past and here was a initial shock! The attic room was damp and very basic and a strong smell of smoke from the dinning room and neighbouring rooms. The sky light mean on a rainy... More

To be fair the price suggests you get what you paid for. The staff are very very hospitable when you do find them. The electric plugs in the room either don't work or impossible to get to. No plug next to the kettle. Had to put kettle on the floor to reach the plug. No reception area in this hotel.... More
