I stayed at the Mayfair Guest House for 2 nights in March, and found the room to be very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great night's sleep. Facilities in the bedroom were great, especially having WiFi and TV, tea and coffee making facilities. Parking facilities at front and ample availability at sister property if required. The breakfast was very good, with... More

Spent only one night but impressed with how squeaky clean the place is kept (loved the very english decor of the room too!) Mark & Andy, the owners are friendly and also served a wonderful veggie-breakfast as requested. Less than a kilometre from the station and in a quiet residential area.

Dear Dipti, Thank you for your review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and our vegetarian breakfast. I know that some guests feel like they are short changed when they are vegetarian so I hope you agree, our veggie breakfast remains substantial and not just an English breakfast minus the meat. Will hopefully see you again... More

I had the pleasure of spending two weeks in this beautifully presented B & B and I'm so glad I did. Mark and Andy made me feel very welcome, provided useful info, and cooked the most delicious breakfasts. My room was large and exquisitely decorated, with a nice aspect. The whole house was always perfectly clean and very quiet. Very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, whilst working locally- very welcoming , spotlessly clean and the best omlette for breakfast, I have ever had. Easy to find location and ample parking for guests, in fact I have booked to stay again twice in the forthcoming weeks- thank you so much, highly recommended

It is so refreshing to find a guest house that is spotless and where attention to detail is first class. A warm and friendly welcome on arrival, wonderful beds and a great breakfast. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Mayfair. Keep up the good work Mark and Andy!

Made to feel welcome from the moment l stepped over the threshold with a warming cup of tea and a chat. I work for myself and was on a budget so chose a single room with shared bathroom, not that you would notice – bathroom was right next door and l was unaware of anyone else using it. Of course,...

What a wonderful place to stay in Southampton. From the booking straight through to the friendly service and breakfast was a pleasant experience. You made our visit to Southampton more memorable. We were received in such a friendly manner and informed about all the local things to do and see. The room was beautiful and breakfast great. Will recommend this... More

Prior to earlier this year I'd never stayed in Southampton, and never even considered it worth a visit, preferring instead to visit and stay in Bournemouth, my earlier visit was a theatre break, a one night stay at the Novotel, which was very good (see review), but also very expensive, noisy and you had to pay for parking. That said... More
