This is an unbeatable B&B experience - relaxing, comfortable, delicious, informative, quirky, spotless, spacious ... I could go on, but you really just need to try it for yourself. If there's such a thing as artisan B&B, then this is it. You may not want to leave!

Lovely hosts, lovely room and lovely breakfast. Couldn't have been better. Would definitely stay again. The special touches meant such a lot: phone call the night before to advise us of road closures, free parking disc, bottled water in room, handmade toiletries and a very helpful information booklet. The free to use jukebox, record player and records in the lounge... More

Stayed here in October and we were bowled over by the place. The decor is stunning, simple and classy but so comfortable and welcoming. The 70's style lounge is a great touch, with a juke box and fresh coffee and cookies it was a great way to end the evening. Breakfast was stunning with so many choices including vegetarian and...

The Waves is an eclectic and quirky mix of retro 70's and modern simplicity. Two night stay with a teenage daughter who also enjoyed the experience of listening to records in the evening. Charming hosts who were very welcoming. Spotless rooms with crisp Egyptian 100% cotton bedding and towels. Breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of choices and lots... More

We stayed at The Waves a few years ago and had a great time so we chose to stay here again this time - why tempt fate elsewhere? My husband and I stayed in room 2 - an immaculate room with lovely decor. My teenage son had booked the single room but Kevern very kindly upgraded him to a double... More

We were at a wedding and decided to stay at The Waves rather than up the road at an expensive hotel and we are so glad we did! The room 3 was really lovely, so clean, cosy and quiet. The owners pay a lot of attention to detail and we really appreciated this. The breakfast was great and the owner... More

We stayed at The Waves for two nights 3/4 September 2014. The room was very clean and tea/coffee facilities were excellent with a good range of tea. The room has a booklet to let you know about The Waves and also has the menu for your breakfast. Again there is an excellent choice. Kevern was very helpful and friendly. I... More
