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

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

We were shown to our rooms on arrival which were one on the ground floor and the other at the first floor, and from both rooms you could see the theatre and hear the party's behind the guesthouse....

Being text book style rude even... More

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

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
