The gentleman running the hotel was very kind, welcoming and helpful. However you have to go to another hotel to register and collect the keys from a gentleman whom I did not find very welcoming. Unfortunately the road the Mayfield is in and surrounding area has seen much better days which I found very depressing and outside the hotel I did not feel very safe.

No hospitality from staff. Staff not always available to help you. Heating had to be put on only when i asked and was noisy. Didn't turn off when i was told it was and was on all night. The handle on the toilet broke the first night as it was just glued on. It was glued back on the next day. The breakfast was excellent and beds were comfortable.

We stayed at the Mayfield Hotel for two nights in August. The couple who run the hotel are very nice and accommodating, nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are dated, but clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are very good and reasonably priced.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The only downside was trying to get a parking space on the road late at night, which you could get but may have a little walk. I would recommend for a low budget stay.

"Why are the owners noisier than the guest????"
Not much of a family hotel, more like a party hotel. The owners knowing on the booking we would be arriving as a family chose to room us next to a stag party. The room was reasonable. Thick dust on the back of the tele,bed was ok, fridge was smelly and no hot water when showering. After a great day out by the beach, having to come back to the stag party getting ready making a racket and then the owners making an even bigger racket. We found it difficult to relax. With the owners having there own get together we found it difficult to get any sleep and when things finally settled down. Boom then come the stag party from there night out crashing into there rooms. Nice one!!!! Next day we were offered free breakfast but that was because whoever prepaid for it never turned up and it was stuff left over/cooked too much so rather chuck it away offer it out as an after thought. 2nd night was similar to the 1st but without the stag doo as I think they went home by then. Any chance of a refund??? Thanks for the memories. X

"Average guest house - Would stay again if i had to"
Lovely owner and family who run the Guest house. Very accommodating. Room very dated with floral patterns - Mini fridge a good addition but needs good clean (behind, especially) Bed was a bouncy divan - Room secured with number code lock - felt secure. Small leak in the toilet, and thin walls, so neighbors heard easily. Good location, only 5-10 minute walk to bus and ASDA. Overall a good experience - Would stay there again at a push.. About 15 small stairs to climb, so wouldnt recommend for those who struggle with stairs/need a lift or elevator.

"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.

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.

"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.

"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 ?

"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.

"Noisy stay..."
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.

"god frukost"
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.

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.

"Good cheap hotel"
08/21/15 Spuriosity England
We stayed here overnight during the Bournemouth Air Festival as we had booked late and struggled to find hotels that didn't cost a bomb. I knew it wasn't going to be the Ritz but, hey, I needed somewhere to stay! Yes, the decor is dated and, yes, I had a 'private bathroom' at the other end of the corridor, but it was clean and comfortable. There were all the basic amenities in the room that you'd expect: tea, coffee, iron and even a little fridge. We had to sleep with the window wide open as it was quite warm. There was a bit of road noise but it wasn't too bad as the street isn't particularly busy. We didn't eat breakfast so can't comment on that I'm afraid. There's space for three cars to be parked outside the hotel, but there was lots of space on the road; I'm not sure if there are charges involved for that. The rooms use a coded lock instead of a key and it says you can change the number to your own but it didn't work with ours. Just be careful to lock the door again on your way out as it doesn't automatically lock itself. All in all, a pleasant stay.

"Who posting the reviews for this hotel ?"
06/29/15 Lhardy18 Reading, United Kingdom
Tripadvisor has never let me down but i think if i had checked the reviews first here i would not of been happy at all. Like my title says i don't know who posting the reviews for the hotel but they cant be real people ? Be prepared to travel through time and space after arriving at the hotel as it seems the hotel has not been touched since the 80's. Parking on the road is ample for a car and even couple of spots out front so don't worry about that . . . main reason why is that its non permits and its about half hour walk from the town center and 40 mins from pier. Hotel does not have a reception and you kind of just have to wait in hall while your force to fill out a bunch of pointless disclaimer that look like they have been written by a infant. You will then be told what room your in and sent on your way. My partner described the room perfect '' People come here to die '' :S We had the half paint and half wall paper on the walls . . . not in the cool way either.... More along the lines they ran out of either paint or paper . . . you decide ? The carpet is straight from a closed down pub and you use kettle or iron at your own risk. We must of not paid extra for hot water as the shower was cold. You will also need to move about to get wet as there is a lack of pressure . . . Again enjoy the 1980's bathroom suite. I really could go on all day but i think you get the point. We stopped for two nights and then moved as was unfair on kids. With such a large choice of hotels in the area. Dont waste your time or money.

"Excellent rating for numerous reasons. Great as a 'home away from home'."
06/24/15 IAmOnTheInternet Southport
I live in a similar style house in the north west. The construction is solid brick which means that while staying here, I didn't hear a noise from any of the other guests in 4 days and 3 nights. The hotel location is excellent for numerous reasons. It is a 10 minute walk to a very large Asda hypermarket. It is around a 15-20 minute walk to the beach. It's a half hour walk into the city centre. I did a lot of walking around Bournemouth, and found it to have a safe feeling. The room itself was perfect for my wife and 3 year old daughter. It had tea/coffee making facilities and a small fridge. It also had a ?queen? bed and a single bed in it. The sheets were white, and clean. The room was clean and the owners thoughtfully provide an electric room deodoriser. The wifi is free, and fast: Ping = 48sec with a 5.86Mbps download speed @ 03:00 There is a small LCD TV which was tuned well and had recent tuning to freeview channels. We opted to not have our sheets or towels changed over our stay (do you really need your sheets changed or beds made by someone else? how often do you change your towel at home?) and if our rubbish bin got too full, the cleaning staff were friendly in giving us a new bag to use. We didn't make use of the £7 a head full English breakfast. There are lots of places in Bournemouth that you can find that are a real gem for breakfast or lunch. I suppose if it suits you though, at least the option is there. I believe they also had an option of a continental breakfast. Our room was room number 4. I recommend this room as it is at the front of the building, and over the dining room (so if your three year old bounces up and down as they do, you aren't going to be disturbing anybody). The shower room was fine, and fit for purpose. My little girl is used to baths, but she just sat down in the shower and thought it was fun playing 'in the rain'. Also, the front overlooks the tennis courts, and although the language of the players can sometimes be a bit questionable, it was fun to watch through the sheer curtains. We had quite a few 'day sleeps', and weren't disturbed at all. Parking was good. We were able to park at all times on the front of the property, and there is off street parking too if needed. The main thing which I really liked was the lack of a key. All rooms have combination locks, and the main entrance is a combination lock. This makes life so much easier! Why can't more places do this!!! Usually I always tend to 'travelodge' on the cheap, but this place offered far more for very little extra money. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, I can't flaw the place.

"Alright for a night"
06/20/15 MichV5631QD Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
The hotel was a bit difficult to find and I did not like checking in at a different hotel. However, the staff were lovely and welcoming. We had paid for a full English breakfast with the room, however had an early flight the next day, so left before the kitchen opened for breakfast. The staff were very good in arranging for a continental breakfast to be bought up to the room so we had something to eat in the morning and were very helpful in arranging a taxi to pick us up in the morning, as well as pointing us in the right direction for something to eat in the evening. The room was very dated but clean and tidy. We did get bitten during the night which was a concern. Overall it is cheap and cheerful accommodation, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful but the hotel is desperately in need of renovating.

The website boasts en suite bathrooms. The owner, very unpleasantly, declared he was not responsible for the B&B's website.
