The rooms are spotlessly clean & Barbara the owner was supper friendly with a tasty breakfast where she couldn't do enough for you and would recommend if you want to stay some where in Southampton no need to look any further

We recently spent two lovely days in Southampton staying at Madison House. A lovely old house full of charm and tranquility.

It was possible to walk to the city centre although the short bus ride might suit most people....

It was lovely to spend almost two weeks at Madison House. Everything is very beautiful and clean. The owner is very helpful and friendly. It's about 20 minutes walk from the Train Station and the Centre. I really recommend Madison House. It's an excellent Bed & Breakfast!

“All rooms are lovely and quiet. Room 5 is on the smaller side and has a shared bathroom, but is more than fairly priced accordingly (so perfect for the budget traveller). If you have (a little) more money to spend, Room 10 is much more spacious, has built in wardrobes and is en suite. However both rooms have plenty of light, and are really clean and comfortable.”
