We stayed for one night when meeting friends off the Queen Mary. I wish we could of stayed longer!! Mark and Andy have the friendliest welcome for you, time to chat over a welcoming drink in the most beautiful sitting room imaginable. Our bedroom did not disappoint either. Spacious, tastefully decorated with the most comfy bed I've slept in for... More

First, let me apologize for the tardiness of this review. At the beginning of May (2015), two friends from Germany and I were booked into the Mayfair by my brother and sister-in-law whom we were visiting. They couldn't have chosen a more comfortable B&B with hosts who are more hospitable and accommodating. Our rooms were spotless and very tastefully decorated... More

Just book! Nothing is too much trouble for the owners & they do a fine job in every aspect. Rooms are delightful, beautifully furnished with many thoughtful extras. The sitting room as at your disposal & even the dining room, complete with cutlery, of you choose to bring in take away food. Havent come across that before!

Well, here we are again, wouldn't go anywhere else in Southampton, in our opinion this is the finest place to stay. Nothing, repeat nothing is overlooked, fantastic rooms, hosts, care. quality etc.etc. Try it and see! Close to the station and buses into the city and a short taxi ride to the cruise terminals. Ideal for a short break or... More

Thanks Mark and Andy for your hospitality. Recently stayed for a week while working in Southampton and found the Mayfair to be a really high quality, comfortable B&B. Lovely appointed room and ensuite; excellent breakfasts with wide selection. Overall an excellent stay and I will be back!

We only stayed one night prior to our cruise, but wished we could have stayed longer. The Mayfair is beautifully done out with every aspect carefully thought out. We were welcomed with a chat with Mark, and a well received cup of tea, the room and breakfast were excellent, and we enjoyed a chance to fuss over the giant dogs... More

My wife and I stayed at the Mayfair following a recommendation from the owner of a guest house in which I have stayed before. We found that the owners, Mark and Andy, could not have been more friendly or helpful despite our later than expected arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly stay here again whenever we visit... More

One of the loveliest places I've ever stayed. Room was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Had a great nights sleep. Andy and Mark were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was great too and nothing was too much trouble. Would absolutely recommend staying here. Thank you for a lovely stay :) Fiona

I stayed 5 nights and am happy to add to all the other contributor's excellent ratings. Usually I stay in hotels but for Southampton I was swayed by all the well deserved comments of The Mayfair - a very affordable alternative that exceeds expectations.
