Reviewed 8 November 2013

Booked in from Friday to Monday. We were Upgraded to family room with a sea view before we arrived. We arrived late on the Friday evening, received a Warm friendly welcome on arrival. First morning had a great breakfast cooked however you wanted , and whatever you wanted. Hotel is situated north on Gynn Square which seems a long way up the prom but there is a tram stop only at the end of the road and it's very quiet , away from the hustle and bustle. John and Dean are great hosts , couldn't do enough for you , if you wanted a pot of tea at 10pm , you only had to ask. During our stay , the hotel was occupied by families that were regulars , I can understand why. Highly recommended , whenever we return there is no doubt where we will be staying .

Room Tip: If you don't mind the top floor , the family room has good view of the sea , tower and Gynn squa...

Had a fabulous time at 'Waves'. John and Dean are great hosts and cannot do enough for you. They will go out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one. John has great knowledge of local attractions and offers valuable advice (and money off vouchers!!!!). Dean's breakfasts are the best and we are really missing those. The hotel is situated in a lovely quiet part of Blackpool but only a stones throw from the tower. The bus and tram stops are at the bottom of the road and offer good value for money. We have lots of friends wanting to go and they too cant wait to sample what 'Waves' has to offer.

This was our first time staying at Waves but it certainly won't be our last. From the minute you walk through the door, you are made to feel very welcome by John and Dean. The Hotel is ideally located away from the madness of the main strip, but close enough to the Trams for a lovely ride into Town. Our Family Room was on the top floor and had beautiful views of the illuminations, it was also very clean and comfortable and a real "home from home". The Breakfast was 5*, and they catered for the special requests of my children too! Overall, I can say, great service, great value and I agree that this Hotel really is a hidden Gem. Thanks Guys

John & Dean are great pair of hosts & make your stay worth while and fun. Breakfast was well cooked and served promptly, coffee was fresh & hot. Would stay again if we go to Blackpool again. Ideal spot for trams & bus's but also not to far to walk to tower.

Room Tip: Rooms are not big so ask for largest available.

Just returned from another great stay at Waves. This is the 4th time we have stayed here and we wouldn't stay anywhere else we love it. John and Dean are wonderful hosts, and Harvey the dog is as lovely as ever. As always our room was spotless and the breakfast was just excellent. We never want to leave. Our time there just goes way too fast. Cant wait to go back next year.
