“A Fantastic apart hotel-home from home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2010

We had a wonderful long weekend at Waves. We had never visited Guernsey before and found it a real gem. 'Waves' supplied us with info on places to see and go. The only thing I would point out is that we went out of season and that some of the museums were closed but there was plenty to still see. I must point out that 'Waves' itself was excellent, it really was like home from home, which is fantastic when travelling with a baby. Luxuries in the apartment such as a dishwasher, washing machine and Sky plus made the stay particularly comfortable. I would highly recommend 'Waves'.

Myself and my partner have stayed a few places in Guernsey and most have been overpriced and old fashioned. We loved Waves, we had one of the 2 bedroom appartments and had a fantastic time, the views and facilities are great. Only things needs were hooks in the bathroom and lamps in the sitting room. if that's all I have to comment on then you know how good it is!

I knew that the apartments would be lovely when I booked, what I didn't expect was the service to be as impeccable as it was. Hadrian, the owner, went out of his way to ensure that my colleagues and I were looked after in the best possible way. For example, if we were out early, he would ensure that we had breakfast to take with us. The rooms were of a high standard (and the comfiest beds ever) and we had everything we needed and more. Waves really is a great place to stay if you want to stay in comfort without staying in a hotel. What could make it even better? A gym or pool and sauna perhaps?? Regardless, we'll definitely be back!

We stayed in "Burhou"; a 2 bedroom apartment. It is beautifully finished and furnished, with 4(!) balconies to let us watch the surfers and the sunsets from the front, or the golf course behind. Storage space is slightly tight, but we were given a beach hut to store beach stuff in. Breakfast is delivered and is perfect. Nothing was too much trouble; they were lovely to the kids, even when one of them damaged a Waves umbrella on a wet evening (and no charge was made).
Not cheap, but we've found nothing else like this in Guernsey - we'll definitely be back if we can get in.

I have just come back from Guernsey having celebrated my hen do with all my friends and family. The apartments were fantastic, they were ideal for any group, wanting a good time. The breakfast was a fab cure to a hangover. We couldnt have asked for better, location, music system, or friendly staff. Thanks for helping us have a very memorable time.

We stayed at this gloriously different hotel for 8 nights in one of the studio appartments, We were in need of plenty of rest and relaxation, and this is exactly what we got.
The room was very clean and serviced every day, the huge bed was comfortable with good quality linen. The towels in the shower room were thick and fluffy and it had a fantastic power shower. The kitchen although small managed to incorporate a fridge, dish washer and washing machine and was well equipped. The fridge was stocked with local honey, home made marmalade, milk, orange juice and a well chilled bottle of Oyster Bay white wine and a delicious breakfast was delivered every morning to you door. Hadian and Jo ( the owners) were more than helpful and obviously work very hard to ensure that their guests have a good time. We also took along our old and hairy Lab, who shed hairs continually which Hadrian and Jo were very gracious about. All in all a lovely holiday in a spectacular setting right on the beach.

We found Waves on the internet and after liaising with Hadrian we were booked into the Jethou Suite at short notice.

We had high expectations after what we had heard and read, and we were not disappointed. Our teenage daughter and her friend were in awe of the layout, decor and facilities, as were we. We had a large four bedroomed, four bathroomed apartment, which was extremely tastefully decorated and equipped with everything one would need. We also had 2 terraces, one at the front and one at the rear.

To welcome us there was fruit in the bowl, milk, juice, jam, butter, etc in the fridge and a bottle of wine chilling. There was even normal sized toiletries in the bathroom cabinets.

Waves is owned and run by a young couple, Hadrian and Jo, who are extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. They have done an amazing job renovating an old hotel into what is now extremely clever, contemporary accommodation. The location is also a bonus, with the beach just across the road, and if you're lucky beautiful sunsets.

A very relaxing time was had by all, although trying to get 2 teenage girls out of the large comfy beds and away from the TV's (which were in every room) was a struggle!
