“We keep coming back - says it all!”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

We have holidayed in Guernsey for the last nine years and six of those have been at The Wayside. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday, with beautiful beaches a stone throw away look no further. But the thing that makes us return year after year are the staff. You won't find anybody more accommodating, friendly or helpful. The rooms are comfortable, bright and airy, and scrupulously clean. There is a wide choice on the menu (try the black rock!!!) and the Sunday carvery is out of this world. Even my two children still come at 17 and 19 because they know they're guaranteed a good time. Keep up the good work guys! :)

We were lucky to have great weather for our weekend break, We went for Sunday Roast on our last visit to the Island and because of the location decided to stay here on this visit.

The front of the Hotel does not do the inside justice.

We booked B & B and ate in the Bar each night, the menu has a large choice Plus specials.

Good Pub Grub!!!

Would recommend

We had an excellent stay at the Wayside Cheer. Staff could not be faulted, they were very friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was good. The food was excellent, room was of a good standard. The views from hotel were stunning, especially the magnificent sunsets. We will definatley be back. Rog and Gaynor

Great location a couple of hundred yards from the beach with stunning scenery at Grande Rocques on the west side of the island. A traditional hotel with a very warm welcome from Donna, Paul, Dave and all the staff. A definite favourite with the "locals". Traditional bar meals from an extensive menu are available with live music at the weekends from tribute and name acts. This hotel also boasts its own ballroom. The large breakfast room is newly refurbished and becomes a second restaurant in the evening with a selection of steaks which you can cook yourself to perfection on hot lava rocks! The hotel has a swimming pool and plenty of parking. If you are looking for a traditional friendly hotel with good food, this is it.

Room Tip: New chalet rooms have recently been added.

Step back in time and visit the Wayside. Situated just of the coast road this small hotel is a bit of a ramble. It is in a ideal place for walks,and away from the town. We were warmly welcomed by Donna the manager a great lady who just loves to help. Going into the hotel is like stepping back 30 years. The ground floor is a rample of rooms and quite dark, access to the bedrooms is up a steep wooden staircase out of the bar. The bedrooms are bright and clean in a little dated and we missed the toiletries in the bathroom. The residents lounge is also on the first floor ,but very quite and a bit miserable. The hotel was a little quite when we stayed , but the breakfasts were hot and wholesome. The evening meals were also good. What makes this place is the staff allways welcoming and inclusive. and if you go and don't expect the ritz I'm sure you will enjoy your stay.
If you stay a few days, do eat out there are some good restaurants within a short drive.

My father and I have stayed at the Wayside Cheer Hotel and a number of occasions. The hotel is great value for money and is very comfortable and clean. The bar has a very friendly atmosphere which benifits from having a barman "Dave" who just goes that extra mile to ensure you have a fab holiday. The staff team in the restaurant are very experienced and nothing seems to be any trouble for them. We ate in the restaurant/bar area most nights and the food was great. My dad happened to mention that he would like a crab salad which wasnt on the menu. The day after , Donnah the Manager got some delivered in time for dinner the following day. Nice touch!! The beds are so, so, comfy too which is rare in hotels. We will certainly be back in a few months time. Thanks to Donnah and Team for making out stay a great one. Excellent all round
