We have just returned from another outstanding stay at waves! We went for the illumination switch on concerts so had decided that since we were busy at night we would just relax during the day and I couldn't think of a better place to do this!

We have just returned from another weekend at Waves. We would never stay anywhere else in Blackpool. John & Dean are so welcoming and cannot do enough for you. Rooms are lovely and clean and Dean's breakfasts are gorgeous! Excellent location and great value. See you next year :-)

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

Welcome to Waves a friendly, clean, cosy guesthouse in Blackpool, the UK`s premier seaside resort. We offer you a home-from-home by the sea.
