I stayed at the Mayfair with my daughter and were given the newly refurbished twin room. This was beautiful. We had a good night's sleep followed by a well cooked breakfast. Our only regret is that we did not get to spend more time at the Mayfair as we were so busy in Southampton.

I stayed at the Mayfair with my family and couldn't have been more impressed. Very friendly and welcoming, our room was lovely and spacious for the 4 of us, very clean and well maintained. Great choices for breakfast all fresh and cooked to perfection.

I travel frequently to Southampton and always stay at the Mayfair. Location is great, the rooms are all decorated and maintained to a higher than normal standard (the beds are comfy too) and the Full English is superbly cooked and presented. Andy and Mark make ANY stay first class.
