My wife and I chose the Waves Hotel for their excellent pricing, rave Trip Advisor reviews and close proximity to the promenade. We started our Waves Hotel experience with a check in/sit down/meet-up with John and Dean (owners & operators) in the communal lounge. Both are fantastic people and full of info about everything Blackpool and are eager to share... More

This was our 2nd stay with John and Dean, and the service just gets better and better. As previous people have said they dont find anything a hassle, and their knowledge of the area would give tourist information a run for their money!! This place is a great find and i wouldnt consider staying anywhere else. Rooms are clean and... More

After trolling and searching the countless B&B's that Blackpool has to offer we came across Waves. We had both never been to Blackpool so we were hoping the owners would know a bit about what was good and how to get about. We were not disappointed at all. In fact I was amazed at how John & Dean ran this... More

After arriving last minute due to a massive error on our intended hotel, we were instantly made welcome by John & Dean. Luckily for us, they had a vacancy! The room was spacious and clean. We were offered a good selection at breakfast and whatever we asked for was cooked perfectly and to our liking. The hotel itself is in... More
