Six of us stayed there last night for a reunion and we were all so impressed with the B&B. We had a fabulous welcome, the rooms were beautiful, the owners couldn't have been more helpful and the breakfast was first class. We are booking in again next year for our next reunion. Thank you so much!

I had the pleasure of staying at The Mayfair Guest House for one night prior to a cruise. I wish I allotted more time to explore this historical city and stay at this lovely B & B. The location is on a quiet street and a 5 minute taxi ride from the Central Station and the Coach Station (l took...

Very welcoming and friendly service. We were greeted with a cuppa and shown to our en suite room. Next morning there was a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. We only stayed one night for a meeting in town but will definitely book again. We had a meal in town in the evening and an early meeting in town again...

I've been visiting The Mayfair every year for the past 5 years and it's incredible to see what Andy and Mark have done to the place. It's immaculate throughout with hotel quality touches that push this bed and breakfast to an entirely different level to the norm. The breakfast was great and made even better by the attentive and humorous...

My husband and I stayed with Andy and Mark a number of years ago. We loved the beautifully decorated rooms and yummy breakfast. We returned on a business trip and had no hesitation in booking the Mayfair again. I was flabbergasted how the guest house had developed. The beds and finish to the rooms put a lot of hotels to...

I recently spent the weekend in Southampton between business meetings in the area. The owners of the Mayfair were very welcoming; Mark cheerfully received me for a late check in after a late flight on a Friday night and this was very much appreciated. He even took the time to point out points of interest on a map in case...

Stayed overnight after watching a band at the nearby Guildhall - the house is only a short 15 minute walk away and meant I didn't need to find somewhere to park. Mark provided a warm welcome and I was very pleased to be made a cup of coffee on my arrival, this was a nice touch after the non-stop drive...

We booked a two night break following a booking for the Mayflower Theatre.

Sorry about the bed, it does have a duck feather quilted topper on it which would have made it softer - like you, I prefer a firmer bed....
