Me and my girlfriend booked in for a couple of nights in the Bay room above the restaurant. The place is run by Bev and Windy who both were very friendly and quick to reply to our last minute inquiries and made the hole process from booking to checking out extremely smooth and easy.
We arrived later than expected on the friday night but Bev greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us to our stylish and spotless room which had everything we needed including some freshly baked homemade brownies which we both felt was a nice personal touch. It was suprisingly peaceful staying above the restaurant and being able to walk straight down to be shown to a table worked really well after working up an appertite from a long days sight seeing exploring the beautiful local surroundings which are among the best in Cornwall if you look in the right places. The breakfast bag also meant that we were able to prelong and enjoy a lie in with some nibbles and the sun poring through our skylight without any rush.
The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in which was made daily. Access to the car was also made very easy with the option of a rear entrance meaning you can completely avoid the restaurant when bringing in and out belongings. I would reccomend a room at waves to any couple or lone visitor wanting a few days to get away from the hussle and bussle of everyday life and find some privacy and peace and quiet. Its far from the hostels of Newquay which attact crowds of those looking to party, but there are a number of local watering holes and places to eat within walking distance of the rooms if you fancy a few somewhere else. The local surfing is also brilliant with a variety of waves and options for all winds and tides.
A stay a waves will garuntee an attention to detail which you just won't get staying in a larger hotel or hostel and the fact there are a small number of rooms gives you that exclusive, private feeling away from what can at times be a busy area. All this came at a price that we (a couple in our early twenties) found to be very affordable. We would love to come back again at some point.
Thanks for a memorable stay!
