Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2007

Warm and friendly.A great hearty Welsh Breakfast too.
Specialises in Ferry schedules and well organised for the early departures.
Holyhead has some lovely areas close by.Beautiful beaches and The South Stack Cliffs is a must.

This is the first major unsatisfied customer I have received,in the many years of running the establishment.
I had to wait until 1 am for the late arrival and then I was up again 5 hours later for Breakfasts. Considering the inconvenience for me, the overheads and for a cost of just over £20 including Full Breakfast,I am disappointed that I have been marked down for value for money.
The room albiet on the smaller side is adequate for a short stay if not longer. It has a large single bed plus all the facilities as advertised. Desk space and a nice view too!
The hot water was switched off to the sink that evening due to a leak in the pipe joint. I had requested a plumber to attend and consequently let down! Hot water was temporary available by use of the kettle in the room and cold water tap in the sink was fine. There were also 2 bathrooms close by too!
Should any single traveller request a larger en-suite room then no problem,however they will be charged a supplement for the use of a double room.

We arrived around 6 pm and had a warm greeting by Carl. The rooms were tasty with TV,teamaking etc. It is a place mainly for one nite visitors and is within easy walk of pubs and eating places. We caught the early ferry and a lovely Welsh breakfast was served at 7-30am. Good value for money. Not 5 star but for a break of journey,especially if cathcing early ferry, a lovely place to stay.

My Husband and I stayed at Wavecrest for one night, it's a convienent stop for the Ferries to Ireland. We were to have an En-suite room, instead we had a room with a sink, Carl said that the bathroom down the hall would only be used by us (it wasn't). We could not use the shower in that bathroom since only the hot water would turn on. Had to use another bathroom that was shared by others. If we were to stay in Holyhead again we would look for another location.
