This was a true delight of a guest house. For the princly sum of £35 i was pleasantly surprised to find that my room was beautifully decorated to a high standard, complimentary tea and coffee available, tv, top quality toiletries on tap for my use and the room was comfortable, warm and absolutely spotless.
The house didn't provide breakfast but it provided all the facilities for guests to bring their own or, as in my case, I preferred to eat out. I would certainly highly recommend this little gem of a guest house and will gladly book again the next time I'm on a course in Southampton.

Another good find from booking.com, a very reasonably priced self-catering guesthouse, with all the utensils, crockery pans etc that you could ever need. Clean, comfortable beds, some rooms with ensuite facilities, with a straightforward Covid friendly arrival system / policy.
I would highly recommend this guesthouse which is easily within walking distance to the grocery shops and nice restaurants on Shirley Road, out the front door turn left to the end of the road then right onto Shirley Road. There's even Voi scooter parking nearby if you've got an account!

If your used to uniformity of Chain Hotels then this might put you off but you then miss out the individuality of staying at a local individual property.
The place was easy to get to a short walk from City Centre and Train Station. Buses stop nearby. The Guesthouse is along a street full of others but is at the far end from main Bus routes.
The entry took a bit of working out and needs to free hands, I couldn't see the keyhole on front door. Room was big with plenty of supplies, shower was small without any shelving for shower gel etc, it stayed at the temperature I wanted but wasn't very hot. The sink is one with a plug which I can never workout how to release.
Minus points is the blind or curtains did not close fully and the alarm clocks alarm didn't work.
Stay on lower or ground floor if you struggle climb stairs on your own as their may not always be anyone there to meet you.

I almost missed my stay. An email was not answered quickly enough, and the text message(s) supposedly sent to my phone never reached it. The phone number given on the documentation merely led to an answer machine, even though I tried multiple times. However, someone was in when I arrived, and all was well.

First impression - superb, like a four-star hotel, with a large comfortable bed in a large, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated room. The bed was outstandingly comfortable, too.

The self-catering kitchen and dining area was also superb.

My only quibble was the shower cubicle in my room which was not only very small but also, I felt, dangerous for anyone elderly, like myself. There was a large lip to step over, then a significant drop to the bathroom floor, with no safety rail either inside or outside the cubicle.

The guest house is on a pleasant quiet street, with adequate parking, and near shopping and dining facilities in the city. I would certainly look to stay here again on future trips to Southampton.

We are repeat customers of the Mayfair and have seen this guest house go from strength to strength over the years. Nothing is too much trouble, it is immaculate and comfortable. The big named hotels do not even get a look in with us in Southampton as we wont take our business anywhere else. Honestly this is the best place with the loveliest owners and you will not be disappointed.

My friends and I booked two rooms for two nights as we were joining a college reunion (50 years). We were bowled over by the quality of our stay. The rooms were clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The kitchen, dining room and lounge provided plenty of space and excellent facilities if we had needed to eat in. We couldn't believe the good value as it was very reasonably priced. Thank you Andy for being on hand and letting us check-in early after a long drive.

Beautiful room, spotlessly clean and everything you could want. Kitchen available to use. Host Andy was very helpful. Highly recommend for a stay in Southampton as short walk to Mayflower theatre, bars and shopping centre. Car parking available outside.

excellent quality establishment, in error I stayed in a double room nonetheless it's quality was impeccable. The room was immaculate with a very comfortable bed and sumptuous duvet. Ensure bathroom was a bonus. No food provided onsite apart from the usual tea and coffee facilities however guest have access to a large kitchen with all the mod cons and a dining area. Brilliant 👏🏾

Really nice guest house, the room was large and the instructions to enter from Andy were really clear. Really well situated from the town and railway station and an easy walk to both. Everything was really clean and the shared kitchen was a useful addition. Really enjoyed my time there.

How far is the cruise port from your guest house

Dear Ed, I'm afraid we don't have anything. It falls during the Southampton Boat show so the city will be very busy. It might be worth looking at hotels instead. Regards, Mark
