The breakfast was delicious and the beds were very comfortable. The rooms are immaculately clean. There was no problem in catering for a vegetarian and a vegan. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Your and your girlfriend's review here on Trip Adviser seems to differ to the one provided by the other booking service.

My wife and I stayed for three nights and were impressed with the quality and comfort of the accommodation and the friendliness of the staff. The full English breakfast was first class. The central location is a bonus.

I stopped at the Mayflower for a few nights a couple of weeks ago. As the title states great location and great staff who cant do enough for you during your stay. There was plenty of selection for breakfast and you'd do well to find a better Full English in town.
