Excellent place to stay for divers. Great overall value. Rooms are a very spacious with en suite bathrooms and free wifi. There is a varied menu to pick from each day for all three courses and the food itself is of a good standard. The Mayfair is the best B&B available to divers.

I spent just about 3 months at the Mayfair before spending a further 3 weeks in various B&Bs in different parts of the UK. All I can say is that in terms of price, presentation and quality The Mayfair topped them all. The rooms were clean, spacious and allowed for natural lighting as well as ventilation. The food, I'll just...

I stayed at the Mayfair for just over 2 months. The hospitality of the owners was great, and the food was very good. Home cooked meals, and plenty of them. It is about a 15min walk from the town center, along the waterfront. Will def stay again if I'm ever up this way.
