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

I stayed here August 2013 with my son and my parents for four nights. The guys were very welcoming and our rooms were superb and very clean. The breakfasts were delicious, we had the full English breakfast every day! Plenty of tea and toast too. Excellent value for money. Our hosts couldn't do enough for us and we would definitely...

Visited there this weekend July 2013 and had a great stay. Location is great only 5 mins from the town centre - no more than £5 in a taxi. There was a good choice at breakfast, no problems that we chose only what we wanted from the menu. Great guys, there to chat if you wanted to. Room was clean... More
