Even though it’s a popular place, Scarborough is still a bit of an undiscovered gem – and we quite like it like that, so don’t tell everyone. It’s got the best of the seaside (it was the first seaside resort after all, and the faded grandeur of those days is still here) but it also has the best of the coast – deserted beaches to hunt for dinosaur footprints, coastal paths along the North York Moors National Park, fabulous cliffs and crashing waves. We do think we’ve got it all. See our section on Scarborough for more about the area’s attractions and see Location to find out exactly where we are

  • Everything about Waves is excellent. Value for money, their welcome, the quirky retro lounge, cleanliness, excellent mattresses, fluffy towels, fantastic breakfast, parking pass, wifi, location. But most of all it's the personal touch that makes the difference - this is where so many 'chains' are falling down and why Waves is gaining such a great reputation and many repeat bookings. Thank you - we will be back

  • This was our fourth and final visit this year..... as Phil and Chris are off to Oz for a well deserved break. As always the room, the breakfasts, the homemade cookies... and everything was 200000 % !!!! Do not look anywhere else. Perfect beach access location, great parking and stunning hosts. You wont wanna leave!!!!!

  • We stayed at the waves on Halloween weekend, l was taking part in the Yorkshire Coast 10k. I must admit it's the best b & we have stayed in. I was able to have an early breakfast on Sunday mornings which was excellent. All in all a really excellent experience.

  • Fabulous stay with fabulous host and hostess. The amazing Chris and Phil who looked after us on our trip to Scarborough made our stay so welcomig with comfortable beds, hoy showers and incrediable breakfasts to get top rating from any food critic. Local knowledge given freely to find all Scarboroughs highlights.We could not have found better than the Waves. Cant wait to return next year
