Everybody says its a home from home and this is true from start to finish,from the fab welcome to the sad and reluctant goodbyes . An absolute gem of a place and I challenge anyone to find better hosts than John and Dean and of course the gorgeous Harvey....a real hit with my two boy's! Thank you so much guys...hope to see you soon...Sarah,Clare,Finlay and Niall.

Think the headline says it all! It really is "home from home" & if I was to give it a score it would be 100 out of 10! From the moment my six year old daughter & I stepped into waves it became home for the week. From the welcome you get to the room you have is better than a five star hotel! John is a master at making you feel welcome, a fountain of all knowledge when it comes to Blackpool & the best places to go, deals to be had, friendly advice. Dean is a master in the kitchen - fantastic breakfast from Dean every morning - cooked to perfection! Then there is Harvey (the dog) a true gentleman! Great with my daughter & as friendly a dog I have met in many years; he too is fantastic. I have been lucky enough to travel to some wonderful & beautiful places in the world and I know that the american`s pride themselves on customer service...and making people feel welcome - not knocking the american`s in the slightest, just a bit of advice...come & see how John & Dean do it!!
So to sum up, fantastic, fantastic, fantastic....so much so that I have booked to go back in three weeks time for a short break with my daughter!

Room Tip: No tip here - if our room was anything to go by, every room will be fantastic!!

Just returned from a brilliant stay at waves. John & Dean were the perfect hosts, we were made to feel so welcome from the minute we walked in. The breakfast was delicious & perfectly cooked & our room was lovely with a huge bay window overlooking the sea & tower. We will definitely be returning, it was like an home from home. We only stayed a few days and it felt like we'd known John & Dean all our lives! The location makes it great for couples and families. You can walk in to the centre of Blackpool which took us around 10 mins or you can easily catch a tram at the end of the road. Highly recommended and looking forward to returning soon!!

We stayed here for 3 nights starting Monday 19th. We were immediately made to feel welcome and sat in the front room having a brew with John and Dean before we checked into our room. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they made us feel very welcome and at home. We were given half price vouchers for any of the attractions that we wanted and given info on trams and buses. I really don't think there is a nicer couple that run a clean,comfortable bnb in the whole of Blackpool! The breakfast was really good and the room was spacious with complimetary tolietries. The premier seaview room has amazing views and the gardens just across the road are very tranquil. The value for money here is second to none and I truly do not have one negative comment at all! Definately stay here if you want a quiet area of Blackpool with good food, clean,comfortable rooms and excellent service! It is definately true what the sign says when you go into waves "enter as strangers leave as friends" Hope to see you both in April! (For the wedding!) :-)

Me and my partner spent 5 nights here during August, we was made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived, John & Dean were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Upon arrival John reccomended some things to do and places to see, we felt as though the both of them had time for us no matter how busy they were. Breakfast was lovely (cooked by Dean) and we were often the last ones to leave the table as John & Dean were always interested in our plans for the day and what we had been up to, we have severely missed breakfast since coming home! The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed, and the location was brilliant as it wasn't too far away from the town centre, but far enough to avoid the noise. We will definatley be returning here each time we visit Blackpool and would never choose to stay anywhere else. Despite only staying for 5 days we feel as though we have made 2 very good friends in John & Dean, and look forward to coming back very soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2, which was a double room with a lovely view of Backpool Tower
