I have just phoned the Wavecrest to book a room for a night in November, for myself and two dogs before catching the ferry [the wife flies!], and spoke to Carl the proprietor who was as friendly and professional as ever. I've not stayed there for about three years but was greeted like an old friend. I have stayed for... More

We stayed one night ( 20th June 2015). I think the comments by one person were extremely harsh. I was eating my lovely full english breakfast when this person was eating her boiled egg and both members of staff offered to cook another egg for this person. We were very happy with our accomodation, the place was very clean and... More

Thank you for your lovely comments. The previous review is the first serious complaint I have received in 28 years of the standard of cooked breakfast. I take pride in local produce and variation of breakfast. My staff were extremely upset of the comments on running the establishment. They were smoking outside (designated area) on completion of breakfasts and complying... More

i stayed in this accommodation 19th to the 21st June 2015, for my 2 day coastal walk section. I am in a walking group and we travel near and far doing walks. I've always been exceptionally pleased with my B and B accommodations, until this last one! Wavecrest B and B, definitely didn't tick any boxes, in fact staying there... More

As you were probably aware that I was away for the Weekend. You booked a double room directly on-line hence the price. I have spoken to staff and they mentioned that you borrowed a cigarette off them too. The staff were smoking outdoors in their break which they are entitled to. The establishment is non- smoking and all staff respect... More

A very busy B & B geared for the Ferry traveller. Unpretentious yet ideal for a one nighter, Comfortable beds in a peaceful location and easy walking distance for the Ferry . All rooms have adequate facilities and even the 2 non-ensuite rooms have a bathroom each. There are some stairs to negotiate but that burns off the calories from... More

Thank you for an accurate review. The majority of Guests are in transit therefore I cater for their needs.. I notice that I had a previous comment for the property being old. I would love to stay in an even older property. Maybe a 16th Century cottage or a traditional Venetian residence. Hope you had a good onward journey and... More

Stayed here recently while in transit to London and Would just say that Whilst the Owner is pleasant this House is very Old and Old fashioned .

Thank you for your comments. I know the property is a classic Victorian house however it is kept in prime condition. I have spent a lot of money on refurnishments of late. Many Guests praise it is full of character from the modern type establishments.. Holyhead is a busy Ferry Port and demand is high from April until November. If... More

Very friendly owner greeted us upon arrival and helped us carry up our bags. This is a quaint, Victorian style B & B in Holyhead close to the ferry and train terminal we used to get to London from Dublin. Carl generously gave us a personal tour of the island the next day, including South Stack bird sanctuary and lighthouse... More

This is a large house, which like its neighbours, has been converted for use as a B&B. That necessarily imposes limitations. There are lots of stairs to negotiate and shared bathrooms on different floors. It is clean enough, reasonably well maintained and decorated in keeping with the proprietor's passion for transport, particularly steam engines. If you are travelling by car,... More

Arrived at 1 am and was pleasantly surprised that the owner was there to meet me.He mentioned he had to be up again 5 hours later. He must get no sleep! I had no objection to him wearing a bathrobe as it was unsociable hours. Notice a previous review torn into him for that! Slept really well and woken to... More

Thanks tfor such kind comments. I must admit that my confidence was knocked back recently following other comments. Some very unfair. Ferries operate at all hours and I have to tolerate broken sleep during busy periods. I have bought a pair of slippers now! Glad you enjoyed the trip of the South Stack and local interests. More

I immediately liked Holyhead and this B&B is only a 5 minute drive from the ferry terminal, in a quiet parking friendly street, and there was a good restaurant we could walk to The owner was amiable and easy-going and seemed slightly troubled at the same time. I think he has many interests & pursuits other than running his guest... More

Not sure if I should laugh or cry at some of the comments. I always try and make all guests comfortable with years of experience in this trade. To remark that I was "troubled" concerns me. Maybe it was because it was at the time I had just had my 14 year old dog put to sleep We regularly have... More
