From the second the door was opened at The Waves and we were greeted with a bright smile from Phil we felt right at home. Phil and Chris are perfect hosts and they have made us feel very welcome imparting their knowledge of the area to us and various other tips to assist our holiday explorations. The house is gorgeous...

We were working at the Scarborough Spa complex for the weekend. The Waves is really convenient for the Spa and after using the Cliff lift from the complex we just had a short walk back. The Waves is nicely decorated and we had a warm welcome from our hosts. The rooms had everything we needed even an alarm clock! We...

It's a long way from Falmouth to Scarborough and I only just made my connection at York, so my scheduled arrival, close to 11.00pm, could have turned into gone midnight.

The room was large, the beds were really comfortable and the hosts were the nicest of people. The guest house itself was 150 year old building in superb condition, many of the original features still in situ. The guest lounge had a 1970's jukebox which for those of us a certain age (I stayed with my brother on a walking...

Stayed for two nights for the Tour de Yorkshire. Absolutely loved it. Phil and Chrissy were perfect hosts - so friendly and helpful. Breakfasts amazing (ended up getting the recipe for their fruit compote, and I couldn't resist nicking a couple of the biscuits for the journey home), the room was comfortable and spotless, and the location was good.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend. Phil & Chrissy made us feel welcome right from the moment we arrived. Great food, great atmosphere and a fantastic FREE 60's jukebox full of those tracks we all love. Homemade bread at breakfast and homemade cookies available all day. Would highly recommend if you fancy a night away....

Fantastic B&B that made us feel perfectly at home. Sometimes with a B&B you can feel like your invading someones home but not the case at all here.
