The waves is a lovely friendly hotel, the hosts were great couldn't do enough, made to feel at home. Breakfast was better than I have had in five star hotels, good quality produce. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We just love this place. Chris and Phil are amazing hosts, 2000% in every area. We stayed in room 2 this time, elegantly decorated family room on the 2nd floor. Specious with everything you need. Chris so kindly obtained a jar of their most excellent jam for our 9yr daughter, who loves it as much as she loves Scarborough! Easter...

Arrived by train and ambled through town to 39 Esplanade Road. Liked the feel of Scarborough, a seaside town but feels very liveable; interesting buildings, pleasant gardens, primroses wild everywhere. The Waves was lovely; an immaculate house, beautifully decorated, the owners attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Our room was really nice with its own spacious bathroom, good toiletries etc....

You will find slightly cheaper places, but it is well worth paying the tiny amount extra. Lovely, helpful owners, comfortable, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfasts, quiet street, all topped off with an Australian chill-out feeling. They even provided some sunshine. We will be back next year. Very convenient for The Spa.

One of the best guest houses we have ever stayed in. Chris and Phil were excellent hosts nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing with a wide choice on offer, even gluten free. Everywhere spotlessly clean, room and facilities brilliant. Car parking permit a big plus. Wish we could keep this our secret.

Lovely, warm welcome on arrival! The owners made the place feel like your home. The room was spacious, very clean and well decorated. Breakfast was first class and made from fresh, local produce. The location was excellent for the beach and main streets of Scarborough. Parking permit was provided for easy on street parking.

We have stayed at The Waves in the past but not since Phil and Chris took over about 18 months ago. It is still a very high class B&B with the breakfasts outstanding and the rooms very individually designed and very clean and comfortable. Phil and Chris have taken over seamlessly and have now put their own touches in place....

Our second visit and as good as the first. Smashing choice of breakfast and delicious too. Rooms are beautifully clean and comfy and the retro lounge is great. Location is handy for The Spa and there is a great Italian restaurant at the end of the road. We will be back.
