From the warm welcome (and much needed cuppa), to the cleanliness and facilities in the room, and the delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts in-between, everything about this guest house and it's hosts is 5 star. Mark and Andy are lovely, friendly and informative hosts and the location of the guest house is convenient for the Mayflower Theatre, and a nice stroll into... More

This has to be one of the best Guest Houses in the country and at a good price. You arrive at a typical Victorian semi detached house and on entry you find a home that has been lovingly restored to it's former glory. By and large the rooms we went into must look much like they would have done in... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Our king sized en-suite room was luxurious and spotlessly clean. Proper home cooked breakfast - a real home from home. 10 out of 10 - keep up the good work

We were planning a return visit to Southampton, and were delighted that The Mayfair had availability for the nights we were planning to stay. We received a warm welcome, and as before our room was spotless and the breakfast excellent. This time we stayed in a ground floor room, but there were no noise issues. Mark and Andy were unable...

We arrived three days before our cruise, so we could tour the area. Even though we arrived in the morning before our room was ready, we were greeted by Andy and Mark and offered tea in the lounge. The Mayfair Guest House is centrally located in the city and within a 15 to 20-minute walk to the train station and... More
