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.

We are always made to feel so welcome at The Waves and are welcomed more as old friends than guests .The rooms and facilities are second to none and nothing is too much trouble. The quality and choice of breakfast goodies are splendid and as for the home made cookies, well, worth a visit for those alone ;-)

What an amazing stay in this quirky guesthouse. The owners gave us a warm welcome, and told us what to expect during our stay - free range wholesome produce locally sourced, home-baked bread and biscuits! I was immediately drawn to the retro lounge with it's stunning 70s wallpaper, jukebox and record player. Really enjoyed spending time in here drinking coffee,...
