The owner gives this place such a wonderful feeling and atmosphere they have given great thought into the place the greeting is more like being with family than strangers and the place inside is so homely. It's decorated very beachy makes you know it's close to the sea. It's very quiet area and although some squeaky floorboards you don't hear...

The location was perfect for the O2, the hospitality was very friendly, the room was clean and tidy and breakfast was very good. The only problem I encountered was the nearest toilet to room 6 was that the flush did not work, just a little bit of maintenance required, would certainly book agian.

The thing that impressed me about this B and B was the cordial hospitality of the hosts Val, Des and Chris. It is warm, welcoming and sincere. There is attention to detail in the things that count such as provision of beach towels, books to read, a DVD library and tea and coffee making facilities in each room. The breakfast...

The host is really nice and introduced all the things we have in the room. The room is a bit small for me but neat and tidy. I really like its simple design. It was a nice stay and I would recommend others to stay in this hotel.

Great facilities in a well kept house. Really thoughtful staff who go the extra mile for their guests. Unfortunate not to be able to sample breakfast as we had to leave by 8am. Would definitely return.

I was impressed with Waves In from the moment we arrived, my partner even questioned whether the amount we paid was right as it seemed too cheap! Donna was so lovely, and made us feel at home right away. She also helped advise how to walk to the O2 Academy (about 5 mins), and suggested places for food. The decor...

Rooms were smaller than expected & didnt realise it was a shared Bathroom but everthing was there needed or you just had to ask,nothing too much trouble and it was spotless. Breakfast had a really good choice and a cooked one on request for an extra cost. I was hoping for a Bar to Socialize before heading out for the...

Loved this B&B, really lovely hosts, made to feel very welcome. Room was beautifully decorated with everything you need. Loves having proper coffee & sugar lumps in a glass jar, really nice touch. Travelling alone and felt very safe. Would definitely recommend.

Had a good stay at Waves In. Des and Donna were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was really good and I'd recommend it. As the hotel is an older building it tends to be a noisy building, but it was quiet at night. Only thing that could be better was that the beds were too soft and unsupportive for me.
