I recently spent the weekend in Southampton between business meetings in the area. The owners of the Mayfair were very welcoming; Mark cheerfully received me for a late check in after a late flight on a Friday night and this was very much appreciated. He even took the time to point out points of interest on a map in case...

Stayed overnight after watching a band at the nearby Guildhall - the house is only a short 15 minute walk away and meant I didn't need to find somewhere to park. Mark provided a warm welcome and I was very pleased to be made a cup of coffee on my arrival, this was a nice touch after the non-stop drive...

We booked a two night break following a booking for the Mayflower Theatre. We have stayed in hotels before but chose this based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and can certainly appreciate why they receive these reviews. We exchanged e-mails with Mark & Andy during the booking process and to clarify the breakfast arrangements, always with prompt responses. Upon arrival...

Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and we lived up to your expectations (and the other reviews!!) Sorry about the bed, it does have a duck feather quilted topper on it which would have made it softer - like you, I prefer a firmer bed....

Mark & Andy were very kind to let me check in super early after a very early start from my home in Norfolk, and early finish from my job in Southampton.

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 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.
