"Friendly, welcoming and good value."
The new management (from October 2014)were welcoming and very obliging. This is not a stylish establishment but it's clean, tidy and friendly and they clearly understand how to make guests very welcome and comfortable. Bear that in mind and you will find the value is very good, with breakfast included. We'd certainly go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the fridge in room"
I came for a relaxing time & got just that lovely cooked breakfasts every morning really quick service but most of all I loved the fridge in the room that you could do a lot of things with such as extra tea making get your own milk make sandwiches etc. plus other snacks to eat. Also did quite a lot of sightseeing & shopping really good location not […] far to anything. Enjoyed my stay very much. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel not far from the beach and interchange"
Its very dated decor but it did have a nice feel the beds were comfy and it was all clean. The breakfast choice was very good with reasonable amounts and the staff were polite .. Looking forward to booking again next yearGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap and it showed."
The room was old and tired and the beds not very good. The worst part though, was the unknown substance dribbled on the bed board. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast room was nice and the breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great central coastal location, fantastic service,"
Very good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for those on a budget!"
Although the exterior is a little strange, and the interior deco is somewhat dated the stay was very good. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable, as a regular user of budget accommodation I can't praise the comfort of the bed highly enough. The breakfast was also very good , and the man who works in the kitchen was very helpful and friendly. […] Overall I was very pleased with the hotel and would use again. The location was ideal for our stay and there was plenty of free parking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel from the sixties with rude Owner"
Upon arrival at the hotel i was met at the door with an intercom to reception, when speaking to the reception i was told to collect my keys from another hotel in the next road. I walked to the other hotel to be met by a lady telling me i had to pay a £20 cash deposit for the keys. I explained i had paid online & didn't have any cash, as this was not […] explained in the booking. She called the manager, who told me i would have to go to a cash-point. I explained about the booking & he said it is in the e-mail confirmation, but the only reference to payments is for damages caused. Due to it being late at night & needing some sleep i reluctantly went to get cash & paid. I received my key for my en-suite room to be told that the bathroom was along the hallway (en-suite i don't think so). Very disgruntled i walked back to my original hotel, upon entering my room i was met with decor from the sixties, complete with uncomfortable bed & very old furniture. I wouldn't bother staying here unless your paying no more than £15 per night, as its standards are lower than a hostel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but breakfast not that good ?"
I think the beds could be more comfortable , they need to up grade they mattresses as I do not think I could have stayed they for a week on they currant bed . Why do they all ways use cheap food for breakfast because all this does is leave you with a bad experience as they same you all ways remember your last meal and this breakfast was made of all […] happy shopper products and this is not good . So take a look at the price difference and serve a good breakfast and you will have happy customers ? Do not like haveing to book in at one hotel and then drive to your main hotel and give a cash deposit ? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good and bad"
Once you manage to get into the room, there is very little wrong with it. Considering it is a budget hotel it is quite comfortable and you have everything you need. However, before you can get into the room, you have to go to collect the key from another location a little down the road. At this location, you are 'greeted' with suspicion and asked to […] sign various small pieces of paper confirming you will not be acting in an anti-social way. You will also have to pay a cash deposit for your room key. I did not remember seeing this when I booked and if I had not had the cash with me, I would have been put out as I had just driven for 4 hours. Still it was good accommodation for the money and in a reasonably nice student-centred location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"You just get what you pay for"
Basic room in a basic hotel, had to go around the corner to get keys. Bit of a pain but never mind. Breakfast was ok. Nothing special at all. Won't be rushing back here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice clean and well run hotel"
Not a lot more 2 say but nice clean and well run little hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After booking a twin room with en-suite(for me and my 9 yr old daughter),was then informed in an e-mail that this was not the case and that the room had a detached bathroom !!? Arriving at the hotel and then collecting our keys from another hotel !! we then proceeded to our room. Noticed that there was no toilet or sink in the room and that the detached […] bathroom was in fact down the corridor pass 3 other rooms,not impressed..!!! The hotel other amenities were ok , but the worse part of our 5 night stay was the NOISY guests(different ones !!) which allowed us only 2 nights decent sleep. All in all I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless they can sleep through a lot of noise !!! and be aware when booking. that an inferior room is not supplied.

"A basic, but nice guest house"
What the guest house lacks in modernity is certainly made up for in attention to detail. The place tells me that the owner does care about his guests.The hotel is basic, but comfortable and effort is made to provide additional information to assist with getting around Bournemouth.Would I stay again? The answer has to be yes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A conditional Good"
stayed on 2 occasion for total of 3 nights,the couple who managed the hotel for the owner who owned another hotel 100 metres away were excellent and very helpful, however it was necessary to go to the owners hotel to check in and book out -- a decided inconvenience. On booking out I asked if i could stay with my bags in his reception area until i had […] to catch the bus which he readily agreed to and turned on the telly, but when I requested to use the toilet prior to departure he refused and told me to use the public toilet in the adjacent park. A very unhelpful response and I was not amused, I hope he will heed this comment and amend his attitude Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but basic b&b, good central location."
We enjoyed our one night stay at this hotel. It was a great location, just a short walk to the beach. It did look rather shabby from outside and we thought it odd that we had to book in and collect our room key from a nearby hotel. However, once we were checked in we were pleasantly surprised with our family room. It was clean and of a good size with […] a decent en suite. Breakfast was a little disappointing as it was mainly all self-service but the full english was cooked well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Mayfield Hotel, Bournemouth"
So glad I found this hotel, couldn't fault it at all, lovely room and great breakfast. Very good location close to bus/train station and not far to walk to beach and town centre. Very welcoming staff, couldn't do enough for you. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and this has been the most pleasant experience. I told all my friends and family as soon as […] I got home how nice it was and will definetly stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

camere datate ma pulite, ottimo il servizio e la colazione, posizione un po' decentrata, comunque accettabileGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rummet var bra inrett, men heltäckningsmattor överallt, även på toaletten, känns ofräscht. Sängarna var sköna. Läget passade oss bra, nära till stationen och ca 10 min promenad till centrum. Det fanns ingen reception på hotellet utan den låg på ett annat hotell 100 m därifrån. Dåligt tryck i vattnet både i duschen och i toaletten. Frukosten var bra […] och det fanns mycket att välja av.

Bra frukost med trevlig personal är tyvärr det enda positiva jag kan säga om detta B&B .

"Gutes Hotel für einen kurzen Aufenthalt"
Gutes Hotel für einen kurzen Aufenthalt; eher für Paare als für FamilienGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotelli oli kohtuullisen siisti kaiketi, mutta vaikutti epäsiistiltä johtuen vanhoista ja likaisista kokolattiamatoista sekä kirjavasta tapetoinnista. Suihku/vessa oli epämiellyttävä. Suihku oli lähinnä vitsi, paine ei juurikaan riittänyt, jotta olisi kunnon suihkun saanut. Sängyt erittäin epämukavat ja huone todella pieni perhehuoneeksi. Positiivista […] oli, että kuitenkin huokeaan hintaan kuului aamupala. Henkilökunta ystävällistä. Pienillä asioilla saisi hintaansa nähden ok tasoisen yöpymispaikan.

"Felt at home!"
The only bad things I'd say is that it got very hot in the rooms and the rooms were quite dingy and could do with being redecorated. For the price it was good. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well. We felt very at home. My friends and I enjoyed our stay, so thank you.

Very good quality/price. Greatfull the owner, i feel like at home. Really is sleep very quite, and has a good situation, with good conection to train, bus and walking to 5 minutos to main street. So i recommend to you.
"Pretty good for a budget hotel"
09/22/14 Still-On-Tour UK and Worldwide
With such mixed reviews, I was expecting this place to be quite run down, but it was in fairly good decorative order, and in a quiet part of the city. You have to check in at another hotel round the corner, but there's no longer any hassle with collecting and returning keys, or paying a deposit for keys. All the doors in the Mayfield work with push-button door codes, and for your room, you set your own code, so there's no excuse for forgetting! I only met a couple of the staff and found them most pleasant and helpful. My room was a small single, but spacious enough, with a toilet and shower at the other end of a corridor for my use only. Presumably, most of the other rooms were en-suite. Breakfast featured a reasonably good choice, and it was filling. The price was remarkably low, and I would normally expect to pay more for a location so close to the city centre and main railway station.
"Excellent - Friendly Staff and good budget price"
08/29/14 Rachel T Redruth
Five of us stayed here for one night during bank holiday week. Hotel was clean and rooms were more than suitable for our purpose. Everything you needed in rooms with very helpful staff to assist with enquiries regarding taxis and leaving baggage once checked out. Amazing breakfast - one of the best full english we have had plus a wide range of cereals, toast etc. Would definately use again as could believe room price also included a breakfast!
"Staff are wonderful"
07/01/14 katvik Hamilton, Ontario
The room was average, though a bit strange. I had a bathroom sink in my room, but the bathroom was at the end of the hall. It advertises "all rooms en suite", yet my room didn't actually have one "en suite". At least it wasn't a shared bathroom. Having a mini fridge was a nice bonus. The breakfast was great - good selection. Very close to amenities, and shopping and beach are within walking distance. If you like tennis, there are courts right across the street. Very nice budget hotel.
"Fine for one night"
06/30/14 ozman1 Northampton, United Kingdom
Nice place, room a bit on the small side, unfortunately the floor boards needed some attention as they squeaked rather loud , but the breakfast wow really wonderful and well worth staying here just to have it. Choice of food a delight, thanks for that!
"Nice B&B for the price, but it can get noisey"
05/28/14 Latoya R Philadelphia
Nice bed and breakfast for a short stay. Breakfast was good and couple that keep the place are nice. The rooms are pretty small, but ours had a bathroom. I was surprised there was a mini refrigerator in the room, because the description didn't mention it. The toilet didn't flush all the way most of the time. No lift, so you are carrying all your luggage upstairs yourself. I had the bad fortune of staying there over spring bank holiday weekend with a lot of noisey young guys and families with young kids. It would sound like someone was about to break into your room when the group of guys would come in late at night/early morning. Mafield is about a 15-20 minutes walk to the beach and is very close to Bournemouth station. There are food places near by. Would stay again, just not over a bank holiday weekend.
"Sad to leave"
The hotel was clean and inviting. The room was great and so was the en suite. Close to the train and bus station, also Asda. The decor in the dining room was clean and well stocked with everything you could want, and the breakfast was delicious and the family looking after us were absolutely lovely. We are very sad to leave.
"It is OK with Mayfield"
05/03/14 Jordi_El_Mariachet Esparreguera, Spain
Very close to the centre of the town, less than 15 min by walk. The personal were very well educated and everything was clean and ready at every moment. Bed was very comfortable, but TV was difficult to me to understand: only dating or adult kind of pages were shown in the monitor. I just wanted to watch news, Game of Thrones and the weather. The breakfast fantastic but, as it is called 'British Breakfast' the true name should be 'Colesterol-Vein-Collapser'. I think that they may think to include some vegan options, so as they are openned to backpackers and bikers. Finally , it is obvious that I'm consciously talking well about Mayfield, but the only reason is that has been a good experience. The most remarkable fact is the proximity to the seafront, centre of the city and less than 300 m from bus and train station. Jordi El Mariachet Carreño
"Excellent value for money"
11/25/13 Tim W Bideford, England, United Kingdom
We stayed at the Mayfield for two nights on a room only basis as we were visiting my daughter who is at University in Bournemouth. We had two rooms, a family room and a double with a four poster bed(!) both of which were more than adequte for our needs. The hotel is in a great setting, a quiet street opposite a park with plenty of free parking and reasonably close to the town centre. It provides the basic needs in abundance - warmth, comfort and cleanliness. The decor wouldn't be to everyone's taste but so what? It does exactly what a well-priced hotel needs to do and we'd stay there again.
