Our family room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Friendly staff. It was in a very good location. The breakfast was very nice, more tea or coffee and toast was available if requested. We had a lovely weekend.

Lovely hotel with friendly staff and great food.
We had a lovely stay at the wayfarer. The room was spotlessly clean and well appointed with a good selection of tea, coffee and biscuits, bright white soft towels and lovely decor. The pub and restaurant downstairs was also clean well decorated and with a good selection of food on offer. The breakfast was delicious with a veggie option available and all requests met. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and all in all I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. My only slight negative is that parking is limited in the vicinity and we had to park quite a distance away in December so in August this could be a problem.
