Reviewed 26 October 2011

Gorgeous Inn located in a very nice suburban neigborhood. This Inn has been well cared for and maintained with lovely antiques and period furnishings. The Innkeeper has a passion for aviation. Our room was very cozy with very comfortable, furnishings and linens. Clean private bath and nice toiletries. Breakfast was nicely done and nice converstaion with the Innkeeper and other guests.

This B&B was our entry into Nova Scotia, and although we stayed just one night we loved it. There is a wonderful collection of Inuit art that we enjoyed gazing at, so lovely. Also, Jim the owner was full of ideas and practical details about things to do and see as well as places to eat. We had such a great start to our trip because of these suggestions! Overall the room comfortably slept our party of three adults, was quiet and very clean with a bathroom attached. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Lovely house, great breakfast and if you are an aeroplane enthusiast mine host was retired Lt Clonel in the R.C.A.F. with duties to the display teams, pictures autographs, everything a fan could desire.
Amherst is a friendly pleasant place with eating places and shops but the B&B was great.

We spent our first night in Nova Scotia at this B&B and have no complaints! The room was very comfortable and the bed had nice soft linens. Jim was very friendly and made a delicious breakfast!

This lovely Victorian home is filled with a wonderful mix of Victorian charm and Inuit art. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with private bath and window air conditioners. Jim was a gracious host and quite informative. He made a lovely breakfast and gladly met our dietary requests. The bed was extremely comfortable as well. It was a welcome resting place as we passed through Nova Scotia on our return home.

This was our second stay at the Regent, and this time was as enjoyable as the first. The house is a grand old home not far from the centre of the old town - you can easily walk to nice restaurants and shopping. There are a number of historic properties within a few minutes, and here and there throughout the town one comes across trees which have been carved into figures. Jim, the host, is very genial, and it is obvious he is intent on making your stay at the B&B and in town as pleasant as possible. He is a font of good advice on where to go. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, and quite comfortable. We enjoyed the generous breakfasts in the dining room; like throughout the house, the dining room has beautiful woodwork and many interesting art works from Jim and Gwen's time up North.

The Regent is a very comfortable, historic house in Amherst. The owners are excellent hosts, and treat you like they've known you for years. Rates are reasonable, and a great value for the service andcomfort.
