“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2008

We have just returned from spending Easter Weekend in Robin Hoods Bay. Lucy and Chris our hosts at The Wayfarer made us feel so welcome we are already planning our return!
Our room ( Room 4) was delightful with a wonderful view and a shower to dance in!
Lucy prepares the evening meals herself in the cosy restaurant. Everything was made with the freshest of ingredients with a lovely menu to choose from. Tuna and Swordfish delicious.
Chris and Andy were charming and attentive waiters and all in all we were made to feel very special and would have no hesitation in recommending the Wayfarer or returning ourselves.

Our stay at the Wayfarer Guest House and Bistro, Robin Hoods bay, was extremely enjoyable. It was our third stay there and we will definately be visiting again. The room's are modern, clean and spacious. They have everything needed for a short(or long) break away and room's are cleaned daily, with tea,coffee and buscuits also replaced .
The owner's, Lucy and Chris were very helpful during our stay, with nothing too much trouble. Lucy is the head chef in the very warm and contemporary bistro,the service is first class and the food is beautifully cooked, with an excellent special's board.
We hope to return again and again, as it's the perfect place to stay when visiting Robin Hoods bay and the Whitby area.

The Wayfarer is described as Bistro Restaurant with rooms which is accurate.
The food in the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced, we booked early and it was full on the Saturday evenng in mid February when we visited.
The rooms are basic but clean and £30 per night B&B. The breakfast was just as good as the evening meal.
The owners make a real effort to look after the guests and to make sure everything is perfect, it's a nice relaxing place.
