"Google says 3 star hotel, but it definitely deserves more than that. Staff was welcoming and inviting, Great service at their restaurant (Wild Goose Tavern), perfect location and the place was very clean. I felt very comfortable staying at the Wayside during COVID, and can't wait to go back.
(I stayed back in September, 2020)"
