Reviewed June 8, 2012

I was a bit wary walking in as it was the cheapest place we could find in Guernsey but was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this hotel as it was excellent value. The staff were very freindly and efficient, the rooms refurbished and clean (though the pillows could have been replaced). It's a great location and very close to nice beaches. I HIGHLY recommend karaoke nights, they are AMAZING!!!

Despite the outside appearance of the hotel we really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were all newly decorated with new looking furniture. No shower just a fitting that goes on the bath taps but we managed. Breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked, just a shame we had to be up early as it is only on until 9am. Evening meals were also reasonably price, massive portions and delicious! Right next to the beach which would be good for the summer but not for a grotty Easter weekend. I would stay again if I return to Guernsey.

Thank you for your review, glad you were happy enough that you would stay again, and you enjoyed your meals with us.

In the past month all the rooms with baths that had a showere attachment now have Mixer taps with fitted shower so that problem has now been remedied, just one of the many things we are improoving all the time.

We are just back from a week's break at this hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Guerensey is very seasonal and a lot of places were not open but thankfully the weatheer was kind to us and there was plenty of exploring to be done on the super beaches and old forts.
The hotel was very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed in a spacious family room, double bed and 3 single beds in an area that could be curtained off. Breakfasts were great and the evening meals we had there were excellent and great value for money compared with many others. We did try the nearby Crabby Jack's one night and think we were welcomed by the owner - we didn't bother with that one again.
Guernsey itself is a lovely island but be warned it is very seasonal and not much opens between October and April. Must sees are the Occupation Museum, and Little Chapel.
Driving on the island is challenging. There's not much of it but the roads are in general narrow and they have a filter system at many main junctions which take some getting used to. They also take advantage of the close season to do their roadwaorks and many roads were closed. It became a bit of a running joke. Driving at the height of the season would be interesting as would finding somewhere to park. If you go down the car hire route do your research and TAKE OUT THE EXTRA COST INSURANCE. You will pay heavily for any minor scratch otherwise.

We visited the UK for a month in September 2011 and chose to spend 2 weeks in the Beautiful Island of Guernsey we chose a small family hotel instead of some of the larger and much higher price ones and we are glad we did,

When we booked we were told we would have to move rooms after the first week which was fine as we did book very late, we had a room on the top floor first, this had a partial sea view and was nice and bright as the windows were large, the bed was smaller than we are used too in the USA but very comfortable and the room and bathroom was very clean and well decorated for an older building, in fact the whole hotel felt very clean.

The second week we had a room overlooking the Garden and Pool which was great as we could sunbathe and use the pool on the couple of really nice sunny days again very comfortable and clean.

We had breakfast every day and enjoyed the traditional English breakfast and we chose to eat about half of the evening meals in the hotel all the food we ate everywhere was nice and some of our best meals were in the Tudor Bar at the Hotel,

The staff were wonderful and if we ever visit this lovely Island again we will be sure to stay once again at The Wayside Cheer.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool and garden are nice but seperate to the hotel, ask not to be over th...

Its always dissapointing when we get a review like this especially as its 5 months after a stay and we can not trace the guests details, but we feel is likely to be connected with the only other review like it which we replied to already,
