Something different for every day even staying for a few days. The owners Phil and Chris made us feel most welcome and even extended the breakfast times when they became...

We had a lovely stay, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable and we loved the retro decor and fab duke box. Chris and Phil were excellent hosts and very welcoming. We would love to have a few beers with them and our 5 year old son adores them. We will definitely visit again.

Great B&B in a beautiful Victorian house. Very friendly and welcoming hosts Phil and Chris, nothing too much trouble. We stayed in the family room which was at the very top of the house. Comfortable room with double and single bed. Apart from the lovely hosts, what makes this place special are the small touches: organic and locally sourced food...

This bed and breakfast must surely rate as one of the best we have ever stayed in. A great location in the south end of Scarborough. A short walk to the lift takes you down to the beachfront. We enjoyed four wonderful sunny days, with much of our time sat in deck chairs in the Spa listening to the Scarborough...

Stayed at the Waves for a week with our family and it was as brilliant as ever. We've been coming to the Waves for years and the new owners are doing themselves proud - it's an excellent B&B with fantastic breakfasts and great, comfy rooms. So good, we keep coming back - and we've already booked our stay for 2017!
