We stayed here for 3 nights. It is the best b&b we have ever stayed in. Andy and Mark were the perfect hosts. Food and rooms were outstanding. I would highly recommend it.Just loved it. Will definitely stay there again.

I rarely write reviews but this wee gem of a b&b definitely deserves one! I read all the great reviews before booking but it still exceeded my expectations. Great welcome, totally immaculate, beautiful bedroom (we had room 8), delicious breakfast, very helpful owners. What more can I say. Just book it 😃

Mayfair Guest House is very stylish and at the same time homely. We received a very warm welcome, were shown into the beautiful lounge on arrival and served tea and coffee before being given helpful information and shown to our rooms. We stayed in room 3 - again, stylish, immaculate and perfect for our overnight stay. I would not hesitate... More

I have stayed in several b&b’s in Southampton as I commute there from Exeter. The Mayfair is definitely the best one in town. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is great. The scrambled eggs are my favourite! Andy and Mark are very friendly hosts and always happy to have a chat. Highly recommended!

Went on spec which we don't do normally, previous reviews were helpful and was well pleased with our overnighter. Lovely place, immaculate, carefully thought out decor with flair, great english breakfast plus a greeting which made us feel at ease.

Returning to Southampton University for an early meeting start meant we chose to have an overnight stay, no early start and no stress of driving on the day. A quick search brought up a few guest houses and after reading other reviews we opted for the Mayfair Guest House. On arrival we were greeted by Mark, who quickly asked all... More

Mark and Andy could not have been more helpful and friendly. Answered our questions, told us where to go and where to eat (listen to their recommendations) and carried our bags to and from our room. The room was beautifully decorated, modern but with a traditional twist, nice furniture, comfy bed, bottled water, tea and coffee (even Green tea!!) and... More

Having used many guest houses in over the last few years in Hampshire for business.. I can categorically state " The Mayfair" is by far the best establishment I have stayed in bar none.. The taste in decor is more aligned to a boutique hotel, the proprietors treat you in the most hospitable way and make you feel totally at... More
