We have stayed twice in this guest house. Everything about it is wonderful. The rooms are extremely clean with everything provided. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are very good. You won't do better than this anywhere else in Southampton!

A wonderful guesthouse. We had such a great welcome and the owners couldn't have done more. The house decor is beautiful, the room and bed comfortable. Breakfast was really good. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely visit again.

We generally stay at the Mayfair twice per year so have been plenty of times en route to visiting family in Bournemouth. Upon arrival, as per usual, the property is spotless and well maintained throughout... However, the main difference this time being a superb re-brand of the breakfast room and lounge... It's all very modern but still homely. This was... More

The cleanest and most beautiful guest house. Lots of attention to detail, nothing is missed. The guest lounge is decorated to a really high standard, our room had a huge bed and and an amazing shower. Thanks Mark for a magnificent stay.

A beautifully decorated and spotless home from home, with perfect hosts. Very friendly welcome with a cup of tea whilst we were introduced to the Mayfair and Southampton , then taken to our room which was perfectly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was one of the nicest we have ever tasted and much better than any chain hotel including Hilton... More

After a long journey frought with problems, from weather to traffic delays, it was such a welcome relief to be greeted by Zoe (standing in for Mark and Andy), who offered us tea and biscuits before showing us our beautifully appointed room. Every detail was immaculate, from the decor to the bathroom facilities, and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast... More

at the end of June, 2015, 2 of us stayed at the Mayfair before going for our first ever cruise. A better start to our holiday we could not have had - the Guest House is impeccable and Mark & Andy have to rate among the best hosts around. The rooms are beautiful and extremely comfortable; the lounge is a... More

Mark and Andy are excellent hosts, very welcoming and friendly without being over familiar, I only stayed for one night before cruising but wish it had been longer because everything was perfect. On arrival Mark made me a most welcome cuppa which I drank in the beautifully appointed lounge, there were also so many thoughtful extras such as fresh flowers... More
