“My kinda place”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I have been staying at waves with my family twice a year for 3 years now, i can honestly say if i could not book in waves id re arrange my visit. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere, and a home from home. We stayed at Easter, on the Sunday all the kids got an easter egg, and breakfast was fun and games and great food, i myself came 4th in the world connect four championships. John, Dean and Harvey will make your stay and be the first thing you tell all your friends.

This is the 5th time we have stayed here, and its like staying with friends. John, Dean and Harvey the dog were as wonderful as ever. On our last night the 4 of us plus John and Dean had a bowling tournament on the wii, and our 8yr old beat the lot of us. It was a fab night. The cooked breakfasts Dean makes are delicious (as always). Our room is always clean and tidy with a full complements tray. If you have never stayed here you are missing a treat, and its also excellent value for money. We wont stay anywhere else. See you all again soon guys.

Vic, Ian, Louise and Luke.

Waves is really well situated for the main strip in Blackpool, far enough out for you to have a peaceful night and close enough not to need a car, with the tram only a minute walk it makes a great base. The warm welcome you recieve the minute you arrive starts your stay off on a positve. John, Dean and even Harvey the Dog just want you to love Blackpool and their enthusiasm is infectious. Don't plan on sticking to any diet as Dean's breakfasts are great but not good for the waistline. Although Harvey is about, he is not forced on you, if you like dogs they will bring him out, if you don't they will keep him in their personal areas. Practice your connect 4 skills before going as John believes himself to be the Blackpool champion. Value for money it certainly is, everywhere is clean and tidy, we stayed in room 3, a family room, the double bed was a little small for us as we are not skinny folk but plenty big enough for most. This was our first time in Blackpool, if we ever go back Waves is where we will stay, if they will let me back in!!

Room Tip: If you can get it the room at the front with the sea view is the one to go for.

A wonderful stay with this lovely couple in a quiet area of Blackpool. This B&B is friendly and welcoming and the hosts..John & Dean are so lovely and very hospitable. And although it can sound a little clichéd, you really DO feel like you are at home here.
Great attention to detail here..with tea and coffee in room, a bottle of spring water and biscuits.Small bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, soap and cotton wool etc is also placed in the room in case you need it.
There is also free wifi there.

Really clean room with lovely comfortable bed..we did sleep well :) A very quiet spot!

The breakfasts here are not to be missed...believe us..they are first class and there is plenty of extra tea, coffee or toast if you want it too.

We love Waves so much and it will always be a regular place to stay for us when we get the chance to be there.

This B&B is also very close to the North Shore Promenade and local buses and trams...so very easy to get about and into Blackpool centre, but far away enough to get some peace and quiet too.

You will find it hard to find a more hospitable B&B or Hotel in Blackpool!! Highly recommend..see you again guys ! :)

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 - a double room with large windows with a lovely view to the sea

The two owners are great. Make you feel very welcome. Clean, breakfast Is beautiful. I would strongly recomend people going to Blackpool to stay here.

As their saying at the waves , arrive as strangers, leave as friends.

This is third time we have stayed at waves hotel. The owners John and Dean were friendly and helpful and made me and my 5 year old daughter very welcome. The accommodation was very clean, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast outstanding! I will definitely go back and recommend to a friend! :-D

The owners are friendly and helpful, the accommodation is clean and well presented and the breakfast is outstanding. The owners have though of all the little things that can maximise your comfort and enjoyment of the stay and all at a price which at least matches or beats less well presented accommodation. If I ever return to Blackpool I would head straight for this hotel.

Close enough to the attractions to be just a short tram ride away and far enough away to avoid the noise crowds and hassle.
