The Wayside Cheer had very friendly staff...always helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was pretty good too. The bedrooms were clean and tidy, but in room 2 the beds were quite uncomfortable and one of the plug sockets behind the bedside table was coming away from the wall. The shower was basic and took awhile to get the temperature right, but it... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Guernsey, three of four times a year to visit family, so have driven past this hotel countless times. I always had the impression of a beach hotel, and this is partly correct. However, stayed there this week and was impressed. This is very much low season so occupancy was low. All bedrooms have been refurbished.... More

We had a few days stay in one of the chalet rooms next to the main hotel. It was lean and well maintained. The breakfasts were good however the dinners were a little uninspired but adequate. The real bonus was in the friendliness of the staff. All in all a good stay especially if you like entertainment on Saturday evenings!!

Went in June and enjoyed ourselves so much we booked immediately to return in October. Why? Probably down to the great location across from the beach and well served by 3 bus routes (so car left in car park most of the time). It may have been the entertainment in the bar on 3 nights or the banter with the... More

This was my first visit to this lovely place. I went with friends who have visited lots of times and they told me it is always excellent. The food is lovely and the friendly staff give excellent service. Nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the rooms overlooking the heated pool - great for people who can't manage stairs.... More

This was our third stay at the Weyside Cheer Hotel. As always, Donna and her staff were exceptional, making our stay feel special. The food as always was excellent, and could be changed to your own taste if required, as nothing is too much trouble. The bar and resterant area was clean and tidy, making it a great place to...
