Me and my girlfriend have stayed here twice now in less than 2 years. The warm welcome that you receive from John and Dean makes you feel like being at home. The rooms are very spacious with comfortable beds. The breakfasts are also absolutely fantastic with a great choice to suit all appetites. Since our first stay we became good friends of John and Dean. Staying with them a second time has restored our faith in local b&bs since a rather upsetting stay in London a few months ago. I would recommend Waves Hotel to anyone who wants a lovely seaside break with all the comforts of being at home. Absolutely Fantastic..

Hi John & Dean & Harvey dog!
Just back from weekend in the Waves Hotel on Gynn Square, Brilliant place. It's not posh but it's lovely and clean and John & Dean are in the process of bringing the Hotel back up to scratch. We were the 1st guests of the season and we got a nice gift of a (M&S) Bucks Fizz to welcome us. Our room had a great view across Gynn gardens (keep an eye out for John doing his mile walks round and round the circle directly in front of the Hotel!) and the sea and also Blackpool tower.
There's a nice room downstairs with sofas and a big telly on the wall where you can take your own drinks if you wish and meet other Guests and the Hosts, John and Dean.
Being early Feb the weather was pretty chilly but our room was lovely and warm and the bed had a nice thick Duvet and crisp white clean sheets, it was also very comfortable.
It's about a mile down the prom into the centre of Blackpool, there's trams every 15 mins or so or Buses, a taxi cost us about six squids. There's the Gynn pub a very short stagger away or a slightly longer stagger (go right up the prom) is Uncle Toms Cabin where they do great & cheap evening meals and seem to have Bands on most weekends.
The two guys are both from Yorkshire but apart from that they are both fantastic hosts and have a wealth of knowledge about the sights and scenes of Blackpool. Breakfasts are served in a bright cheery room with new pinewood tales and chairs, Dean is a great cook and (apparently) will make you most things you desire, including we're told, Chicken Nuggets for awkward kids. The missus had a lovely cheese and tomato omelette which sufficed to keep her full right up until "teatime".
As I wrote it's not posh, I'm sure John and Dean are working hard to get it up to a nice standard, but it's more than compensated for by their friendliness, great food, great location, free on street parking etc etc etc! Get it booked you won't regret it!

Would recommend this hotel for anyone taking a break in Blackpool. Thanks to John and Dean for making our stay so perfect.

We had a fabulous time at Waves Hotel. The hotel is situated in a quiet location, overlooking Gynn Square, just off the promenade with a tram stop less than a minutes walk away. We parked on the road outside the hotel which was free. We thought the location was ideal for families.
John and Dean were perfect hosts, making us feel very welcome & making sure we had everything we needed. John was very knowledgeable about Blackpool & offered us great advice & discount vouchers! Breakfast was excellent (thanks Dean!) beautifully cooked & nothing was too much trouble. John & Dean were brilliant with our children, not forgetting Harvey the dog who is adorable! Our family room was spotlessly clean with tea/coffee making facilities. Would definately recommend, fab location, and hosts who excel at customer service and go out of their way to ensure you have the best stay possible. We are all looking forward to returning!

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...
