The rooms are of an adequate size, and the pictures on the website were taken by a professional photographer,so have not been enhanced in any way and are a true representation. Also as they had only booked 2 double rooms for 4 adults,they were told at point of booking that one was a small double, they should not have had... More

Stayed here for two nights and was pleasantly surprised. The owners were welcoming, the rooms very clean and the breakfast was very good too. An ideal place to stay for a break in Torquay as it's only a short walk to the town centre.

My husband and I stayed at The Wayfarer for a 4 night break and may I say it was the best. We were welcomed at the door by Phil, the owner, and were pleasantly surprised how clean, modern and well presented the building was. We were taken to our room which was nicely decorated and well presented with even chocolates... More
