“Must stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My first visit to Guernsey was made special by the friendliest staff and management one could wish to meet.After a warm welcome we were shown our room and left to get settled. Our return journey was cancelled due to bad weather but this blow was softened by the management who without question offered us our same room until we got a return to the mainland.
I must also add the food was excellent and the choice of food and drinks was excellent to.
The waitress's, chef and bar staff were amongst the best i have seen in a long while.
This was a business trip but i would have no qualms going back to the wayside cheer for a longer stay (holiday)
Thank you Ken and all the staff.

Thanks for your positive review, its good to know when get things right.

The one thing we can't control is the weather, but we do always try and reduce the impact it has on our guests and I am glad you were happy with what we do in these situations, hopefully next time will be in the summer and you will really see what Guernsey has to offer.

all the best

While touring around europe for a month we chose to visit the beautiful Island of Guernsey, We had a budget as flights were quite expensive so chose The Wayside Cheer Hotel as it was one of the least expensive, so we did not expect too much, but we were pleasently suprised with the standard of our room and the excellent food, we only stayed 4 nights but had some good entertainment and all the staff were very friendly.

We hope to visit Guernsey Island again in the future as theres so much more we want to see and will stay at the wayside if we do.

Room Tip: Room 18 Top floor has a nice view and is a bright sunny room its also quiet when theres entertainmen...

Late booking, visiting family on Guernsey, stayed at the Wayside with my 7 yr old grandson. Staff were attentive and polite, lovely with my grandson, nothing was too much trouble. Queries about our family room were dealt with efficiently. The room was newly refurbished, warm and comfortable; Tennerfest menu good; end of season prices were very reasonable. Location next to the beach is spot on (windy walks, would be great in the hot weather) and on a main bus route. I enjoyed my stay and will be returning. Thank you to the staff and owner for making our visit so successful.

The rooms themselves were clean and tidy with some obviously new furniture but the bathrooms were in dire need of attention. The most important part of a hotel room is the quality of the bathrooms and it ruined my stay.

Firstly I am sorry that you had this problem, Earlier this year a bedroom that had previously been used by a member of staff for a year or so was completely re-decorated had new Carpet and Furniture, and then was re-let as a hotel room.

For some reason the bath problem was not addressed before guests were allowed to use the room, which was wrong.

However, this particular bathroom issue was sorted months ago when it was first brought to my attention by the cleaning staff.

I have checked the records and no one has ever complained to the staff about it, had a complaint like this been made we would have moved the guest to another room and sorted the problem immediately as it was not acceptable.

I am sorry, but had brought it to my attention while you were here, I would have made sure the impact on your holiday would have been kept to a minimum.

Regards
Ken

A friendly staff who really wants you to have a good stay. The locals eat here, the food is good and the prices are fair. We stayed in the main building and it was a hike up two flights of stairs to our room so if you don't want to walk up stairs I think there are rooms on the ground floor in another building. The rooms are basic and clean however the bathtub/shower does not have a curtain so it gets a bit chilly and I managed to pretty much wash the floor every morning. The bus is just around the corner and it will take you directly into town in about 20 minutes. We used the buses to get everywhere we wanted to go on the island (with a bit of walking once we got off the bus to certain places we wanted to see) and it worked out well.

Thanks for your review, I am glad most things were good, sorry you had one of the very few rooms without a shower screen or curtain this will be rectified in the coming weeks.

Just returned from our stay at this lovely little hotel.
Location is we think in one of nicest parts of the island with many fine beaches close by and a particularly good bus service just across the road.
Accommodation is simple but very comfortable and the linen changed and rooms cleaned daily.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food is very good (breakfast choice far better than many other places we have stayed) and also reasonably priced.
We would be very happy to return to this hotel in the future
