“Great place to stay”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I can't beleive i never knew about this little place. I've been in Butuan a few times and stayed elsewhere. This time I quickley checked into Gloreta which is just down the road for one night. As i was walking by Wayfarers i was supprised i'd never noticed it before so i asked their room rate. It was cheaper than Gloreta so checked in the next day and wasn't dissappointed. It has a very good restaurant and food menu, which is hard to find in Butuan for a Foreigner. It was always busy, which was nice. The room was very good for the price, very clean, ok size for 2 people. Had an extra single bed which is good for emptying your stuff onto. The aircon was good also and the shower was ok too.
I found all of the staff very friendly and helpfull but it really was having the restaurant that made it worth it. Decent ingrediants were used even down to the bread which is a hard thing to get in Philippines sometimes.
In all i stayed for 4 nights and would stay again if in Butuan City

Room Tip: Pick a family room.

I have checked in at this pension house on several occasions this year . I found it safe, comfortable, clean and their room rates are affordable. The place is within the city proper. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Its restaurant offers a variety of yummy food. The last time I checked in was with family members.

Everytime I visit Butuan I immediately make a beeline to Wayfarer's. The place is clean, the staff are really helpful and as this is a family owned Inn, the service is warm and friendly. It's got free wifi at their restaurant RiBBS. And you get more for your buck for the kind of accommodations you receive.

Best of all, their food is awesome! Best burgers and ribs in town! And their menu has several native dishes for those who'd like to sample the local cuisine.

Room Tip: If you are the backpacking type, they do have even more affordable double deck fan rooms with common...
