We stayed in this lovely place just for one night but could have easily stayed longer. The family room we stayed in was clean, lovely decor and very comfy. I loved the extra little things like the crockery, reclaimed head boards and locally sourced body washes and shampoo. Really friendly place to stay great with our little boy who is... More

Our room was comfortable and clean with comfortable beds and tea/coffee making facilities, ensuite bathroom was small but facilities excellent. The choice of breakfast was superb and each day I had something different, all delicious. Chris and Phil could... More

Staying at this delightful hotel was a real pleasure... From spotless room to a very comfortable bed...and What can I say about the breakfast? Truly memorable.. And exceptional in its presentation and quantity.... Nothing was too much trouble for the very hard working Chris...a fantastic home away from home and will look forward to seeing the waves once again soon

We stayed at the waves for 3 nights. Could not fault the room,ensuite was excellent, shower very good with organic products which smelled divine. The owners Chris and Phil couldn't have been friendlier and the breakfast was excellent.If you are looking for a great bed and breakfast on the south side of Scarborough look no further.

We arrived and were shown round by the wonderful Phil who explained how things worked and told us about himself, Chris and Jay. Then shown to our room (number... More

We were working at the Scarborough Spa complex for the weekend. The Waves is really convenient for the Spa and after using the Cliff lift from the complex we just had a short walk back. The Waves is nicely decorated and we had a warm welcome from our hosts. The rooms had everything we needed even an alarm clock! We... More
