Stayed at this Hotel for seven nights. Staff were excellent and very friendly and very helpful. Rooms had recently been re furnished and beds were extremely comforatble and the furniture modern and light. Room was light and airy and gave a view over Grandes Rocques. Ate several times in the Hotel and the food was excellent and good value for money. Breakfasts consisted of a good choice including Cereal, Juices, Full English etc. The pool area was being re furbished and the garden area was set out nicely making it a very peaceful place to sit in the morning. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would have no hesitation in returning

A few months ago we had a winter break at the Wayside Cheer and had a wonderful time all that was missing was the weather,

But this week we called the hotel as the weather man said it was going to be warm and popped on the Condor from Weymouth and here we are back again and I am writing this by the pool enjoying some lovely sunshine.

The rooms are really clean and comforable, the staff are friedly and the food is excellent,

Its always worth calling for last minute deals as we did 5 Nights B & B £169.00 each and thats for a lovely Garden/Pool View Chalet.

Last night there was entertainment in the bar and tonight there something different, I see posters for shows in the ballroom in August so plenty going on.

The beach across the road is lovely and sandy and the water quality is rated excellent on the EU Regulation signboard for those who enjoy swimming in the sea (thats not me)

Would reccommend going B & B and dining in the Tudor Bar or Steakhouse although there is a table dote menu for Half Board Guests.

Highly Reccommended

Last Year we had a short break at The Wayside Cheer Hotel but this time we spent a week, It was great to see the same staff and as last year the food and the accommodation was excellent.

We managed to get a whole week bed and breakfast for £199.00 each and I think that was great deal.

We again walked a lot on the cliffs at the other side of the Island, as well as the nice walks near the hotel and along the beach across the road.

The Oatlands Craft Centre is quite nice.

If you are looking for a Clean, Comfortable and friendly place to stay The Wayside cant be beaten for the price

hope to go again next year

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. Donna and her staff do a great job of making you feel at home and the food was great. Never got the chance to use the pool but Im sure if the weather was suitable it would have been fine! We are regular visitors to Guernsey and would certainly return to the Wayside

Do not know where everyone else who has written a review has stayed, but surely it cannot be the same place. Booked 7 nights and could not wait to leave after only 1 night. Our room (7) stunk of chip fat and were told that the frying finishes at 2115hrs, so keep your windows shut until after that time!!

Shower was a joke and with no bath mat totally dangerous, tired and old.

Avoid like the plague if you want to enjoy your holiday.

Had a lovely week staying at the Wayside Cheer with my wife, daughter and my mum. We had a lovely room on the top floor of the hotel and our ten year old daughter and my mum had a really nice 'chalet' type room next to the pool. The rooms have all been recently refurbished and are really good value for money. The staff are all really friendly and will really go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, a special mention must go to Donna and also Enis who must be the most hardworking waiter I have ever seen!
We ate in the totel on three nights and the food was excellent each time (especially the Sea bass). The portions are very generous though and my elderly mum found a childrens portion more than enough (they will do childrens portions of any of the main meals).
Entertainment on the Friday night with Chris was really good fun with our daughter getting up to 'help out' with a couple of songs. A lot of locals come in at the weekend and there is a really good atmosphere.
The only small fault that we found were that the pillows were quite flat and we needed at least three pillows to get a comfortable nights sleep. Maybe time to invest in some new pillows as everything else was excellent.

Yet again, another wonderful holiday. Why stay anywhere else when you get top notch service in a hotel set in a fabulous location. We look forward to going again next year. Thanks to Donna, Paul, David, Innes, Maureen, Yvonne and not forgetting Fergie and Tony the chefs, without whom our two teenage boys would have starved! Thanks everyone for a great time.
