We've stayed here several times and cannot praise it highly enough. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Exceptional breakfasts - nowhere better! We always feel welcome and pampered so stay here when visiting our daughter at university.

This was our second stay at The Mayfair prior to departing on a cruise. This is a first class B & B and Mark and Andy are such fantastic hosts. Rooms are immaculate, breakfast delicious. We would not stay anywhere else in Southampton.

I have stayed here a number of times now and can not fault the hospitality of Mark and Andy. They are fantastic hosts, kind attentive and caring. The breakfast is always spot on (I always have two poached eggs perfectly cooked). The accommodation, which is in a Victorian property is outstanding, clean and stylish with very comfortable beds.

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!

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...
