“Lovely Guest House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2010

The Mayfair is a lovely guest house. Mark is a kind, helpful host who makes a good breakfast! I stayed one night during the week and was upgraded to a much larger ensuite room. The guest house is clean and well appointed, and has nice shared facilities (iron/hairdryer, lounge, etc.). It is located a short walk from the train station on a street with several other guest houses. Excellent value for money--all of the details have been thought of (nice soap/shampoo in the bathroom, nice towels, nice biscuits with the tea tray). I would recommend this place to solo travellers, friends, couples, and my parents.

The Mayfair is just a short walk from Southampton Central railway station and close to the city centre. It is located in a quiet street, which also features a few other B+Bs.
We stayed on a Saturday night. Our double bedroom was a good size with an immaculate ensuite shower room. The full English breakfast also had a good vegetarian option.
Mark and Andy, who run the Mayfair, were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them, e.g. providing us with an extra heater (before we had even thought of asking), as it was a particularly cold spell, and offering us help with directions and local information.

The attention to detail is evident everywhere, high standard breakfast, very reasonable and enjoyable stay. The owners are very approachable and willing to go the extra mile to help their guests. Will be coming back every time my work brings me to Southampton.

My Boyfriend and I stayed overnight at The Mayfair Guesthouse at the beginning of march as we were going out in Southampton to celebrate his birthday.
You are welcomed inside as soon as you arrive, shown to your room and given any information you need about the City. We found it incredibly personal and you feel very comfortable there as Mark and the team go out of there way to ensure you enjoy your stay. The rooms are absolutely spotless and the bed was so much more comfortable than ours back home!!! Tea and coffee is even left on the side to make you feel even more at home.
We visit Southampton very frequently as my Boyfriend used to attend university there and we really like the nightlife. Next time we visit, there is no question that we will return to the Mayfair Guesthouse. Is is fantastically affordable and really worth a look at!!

Kate and Dan.

We were looking for an accommodation in Southampton for the weekend to attend a baptism and see old friends. Mark (host) was so friendly over the phone and I thought, why not try a B&B service this time. We were very impressed when we arrived... scent of fresh flowers welcomed us as we entered and the whole house was spotlessly clean and organized. Our family room is on the third floor which provided us more privacy... very spacious and indeed very clean! Beds and linens are so comfy. Breakfast is great and filling. The only problem we had was connecting to the Wi-fi as there was no signal in our room. We will definitely go back here next time!

I have travelled down to Southampton for an interview at Southampton Solent University, and booked in at the Mayfair Guest Hotel on Landguard Road. The service was excellent and the hotel is only a 15- 20 minute walk away from the university and the city centre. Breakfast was provided and the room had been cleaned on a daily basis while customers are away. Staff, Mark and Andy, were very informative of the local area, saying where the main shopping is, including the university, railway and coach station and anywhere else that you may want to go. They provided a map of Southampton and have been very hospitable and easy to talk to. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who would be considering visiting Southampton.
