I stayed there just for one night. Very unassuming at first, it turned out to be a perfect choice for a cosy accommodation during a tiring business trip. The owners are charming, rooms clean and comfortable, bistro food simply delicious! Breakfast was to die for! Simple perfection. I will have to come back :)

We ate in the bistro and the food was perfect, with a good choice and all very well prepared and presented. The baileys cheesecake is to die for. A lovely couple run it... More

We have just returned after a 2 night stay at the Wayfarer (our 3rd stay). The service as per norm is superb, the rooms are bright and airy, the beds are comfy, very good standard of cleanliness. The bathroom (we stayed in room 4) is small but the shower is big and powerful. Breakfast is not for the faint hearted,... More

Checked in first weekend in April for a couple of night. Warm, comfortable, clean and friendly. Breakfast was as varied as you needed with full range of cereals, fruit and yogurt as well as a very large full English supplemented by smoked salmon and smoked mackerel.
