Lovely staff, great coffee machine and muffins for a quick simple brekkie. Clean, modern and good bathrooms. Great location right near the beach and lighthouse walking path and two mins to the shops and restaurants. Highly recommend.

I needed a relaxing 5 day getaway. Waves did the trick . Excellent combination of a bright warm layout with wonderful personal touches. Downsides:The safe in our room was continually faulty and the carpet needs replacing. A pool and a gym were missing. Generally a terrific venue

Had a fabulous weekend staying at Waves, only wish it was longer. Great rooms, fantastic service, terrific location. A little pricey but it was the long weekend so have to expect inflated prices. Would certainly stay here again.

Rooms were spotless with large fluffy white towels and bed linen. Great vicinity and friendly staff. The rooms are large with comfy beds. Free parking on site although no fee wi-fi which was disappointing. Fresh milk for tea and coffee a nice addition (For those who dislike UHT) Would definitely recommend to friends and would definitley stay again.

I stayed in a back room without a view of the bay. It was reactively quite with the exception of a few noisy travellers walking past your balcony. The room is quite with the doors shut. Location to shops is close. The beds are comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

We had a wonderful week long stay at Waves. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spotless! A great place to stay! Waves is close to the beach, shops, restaurants and pubs. We parked the car and didn't need it again until we left!

Friendly and obliging staff. Room was clean and tidy and generous space. We preferred a quiet room and were accommodated with a room towards the rear of the hotel. Noisy garbage truck in the morning impossible to escape and lasted only a few minutes. Free upgrade was appreciated and it was offered rather than requested. We will certainly use again... More
