What can I say about this place that no one hasn't already said?? From the second we walked through the front door we were made to feel extremely welcome by John and Dean. These two guys couldn't have been more hospitable to us. They were very knowledgeable on Blackpool and offered great advice to us first timers visiting the city.... More

We stayed 2 nights and had a great time! Location was perfect, near the Promenade and the tram stop but just far enough away to be nice and quiet. The innkeeper John is so friendly, so great with kids. We were happy to find a place with a room for 5! My 3 kids loved the bunk bed. Rooms were... 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.
