“Excellent B and B and restaurant”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the Wayfarer last weekend and were really happy with our choice. After scouring websites a few weeks ago looking for a family break in a caravan park, I decided to opt for 2 rooms in a Guest House instead and was so pleased I did. Both rooms were comfortable and our room in particular was excellent with a lounge area aswell. The boys had a twin room across the landing and they were very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and I totally agree with all the reviews, food and service was excellent. The kind of place where you have your table all night and enjoy all 3 courses in a lovely atmosphere. If I had just one criticism (and I,m scraping the barrel here!) it would be to have more choice on the menu for older kids who are fussy eaters! However, scampi saved the day (as I really wanted to eat there!) and they really enjoyed it.

Thank you to he hosts who were very welcoming and do an excellent job.

We stayed in the guesthouse Saturday night and wasn't disappointed the room was exceptionally clean, comfortable bed, the bed linen smelt fresh and clean, with a spotlessly clean ensuite toilet and shower. The room had a balcony with two chairs and a table, the Wayfarer had been recommended to us by friends and we will definitely be returning.

Another return trip to The Wayfarer, excellent room, top quality with lovely touches, and we had to visit the Bistro again which is always a delight. The food here is excellent and we are never disappointed. We would highly recommend the B & B and the excellent hosts (thank you).

Room Tip: Stayed in a few rooms, all good but nice to sit out with a glass of wine on a sunny evening on the b...

We stayed in Robin Hoods Bay for two nights and on our arrival we decided to book into the Wayfarer Bistro for an evening meal as we were staying directly across the road. What a lovely place. Food is excellent (all freshly cooked) service is excellent ( no rushing in between courses), desserts are to die for. Reasonably priced for top quality standard food.
If you are in the Bay this place is a must if you want something special

Spent 3 great days in Robin Hoods Bay 3rd-6th August . The icing on the cake was The Wayfarer. Fantastic food & a great feeling of being made genuinely welcome . Room was great , as was en suite.Breakfast too was fantastic. Our host Chris was very helpful with all of the local info & couldn't have done any more for us. We will definitely go back and recommend The Wayfarer to anyone.

Just returned from a one night break for my birthday. Wow what a great choice we made to stay here. Everything was perfect in every way, the room was spotlessly clean, we had room 3 with the balcony. The food is excellent, Best place we've eaten so far! Chris the owner is a friendly chat who is eager to please and he certainly did that. We can't wait to return and if your looking for a b and b you'd be wrong to choose any where else in the Bay !! Excellent Clare & Steve Doncaster.

Our large room on the top floor was very good and even had sea views from the window. Our evening meal was excellent and can be recommended for any non resident as well. The only disappointment was breakfast, which had a limited range and even plastic jam - not up to the standard on our dinners. Overall though a very satisfactory final stop and very handy for the bus to Scarborough the next day.
