We stayed at The Mayfair with our two children whilst seeing my mum off on a cruise. We travel a lot and stay in a lot of hotels with work and we were delighted by everything at the Mayfair. We'd highly recommend this well run, friendly guest house to anyone.

We stayed at the Mayfair for one night recently and were instantly impressed with the set up there. Both Andy & Mark are genuinely nice people ... welcoming, relaxed and they have a great eye for detail. Aesthetically, the b&b is beautifully decorated, stylish and tasteful. It is also spotlessly clean. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with every... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future. Noted about the shower pressure. It is the very best electric shower you can buy which is frustrating. However, we are planning to put a new hot water system in this... More

When making a reservation based on Trip Advisor and the 100% positive reviews, there is always a little doubt that an establishment might not live up to its reputation. This place exceeds even the highest expectation. Teas and coffees were offered as soon as we arrived, the bedrooms were designed to the highest standards - beds incredibly comfortable, sheets absolutely... More

I stayed at the Mayfair Guesthouse for a period of two months to complete some school work. During my time here I stayed in a single room that included free wifi, breakfast, and amazing hosts!

I stayed at the guest house for one month whilst I was working for a company based in Southampton. Mark and Andy are very friendly and I felt at home from the beginning. When I first arrived I was informed about Southampton and the surroundings receiving a small map and insider information. The beautiful guest house, which, for me, is... More

Had a wonderful pre-cruise stay at The Mayfair. We were greeted by Mark with tea and refreshments and were soon having a conversation like old friends. Furnished to a very high standard and spotless throughout. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Would not hesitate to stay again and only a few minutes from good restaurants and the cruise terminal.

Great place to stay for both a stopover or longer period. Close to the main shopping centre and theatre. Owner was very welcoming and most helpful. Room was just perfect with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Breakfast freshly made to order. Will definitely be back.

Charming, cheerful and polite can hardly describe the ambiance at The Mayfair Guest House. The owners know what it takes to run a successful guest house business.

We stayed at the Mayfair Guest House whilst we visited Southampton to see a show at the Mayflower Theatre. The Mayfair is located within easy walking distance to the Mayflower Theatre and to the main shopping area. The house has been lovingly restored whilst retaining many of the original features. We had an en-suite room on the second floor which... More
