“Lovely!”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We had a lovely stay at the Amherst, the owners were lovely and really helpful. The room wasn't massive but it was nicely decorated and very clean and had everything we needed. The hotel has character so go careful if you struggle with stairs (quite narrow), and is in a great location right near the seafront and walking distance to the town.
Parking is a pain but the chaps were happy to advise Re the street parking and we had a permit for some of our stay
Would definitely stay again

We stayed at the amherst for the first time whilst in brighton for a weekend celebrating a special birthday. We were given 110% hospitality from the moment we arrived from carrying our bags to the room and help with parking. We stayed in room 6, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in. In the room there was complimentary crisps, water, biscuits & tea & coffee which was great. There was the added option of buying beer, wine or soft drinks that were stocked in the fridge.
Breakfast was superb, fruit juice, cereal, toast and fresh fruit all included which set us up for the day. If you wanted a cooked brekkie then you could order this too at an extra cost. Marc & lee were fantastic hosts & made us very very welcome. We will definitely be staying here again & would recommend without a doubt.

We stayed for one night last minute for New Year and could not have made a better choice! We have stayed at various places in Brighton previously but this will be the top of our list for any future visits. Great location, not on the doorstep of a main road and just far enough from the hustle and bustle, yet only 3-4 minutes walk from the pier. The owners could not have been any more helpful, accommodating and welcoming. We stayed in a junior suite which was clean, well equipped and the attention to detail is unprecedented. The only tip I would give is to book for more than 1 night because you won't want to leave!!!

Room Tip: I didn't see any of the other rooms but I would definitely recommend a suite :)

A comfortable and extremely welcoming Guest House, in a great location - stayed in room 7 - stylish décor, comfortable bed, thought I was at home! I want the wallpaper!

A few of us stayed to attend a wedding in Brighton, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Shan was a trooper always seeing if we had everything we wanted at breakfast which was first class - and he carried my somewhat heavy case (well you never now which shoes to wear, so bring them all!) to the near top floor - wonderful!

Lovely and warm when we came home late, the small touches in the bedrooms were so well thought out, will be recommending the Amherst to friends when visiting Brighton, and I would definitely stay here again, without hesitation.

Thanks for making it a memorable and special trip for our family and friends.

Stayed in the a large double at front of building:
Pros: Great location; Very friendly and welcoming staff; Soft comfortable bed with sparkling white bed linen; No shortage of lights both task, mood and fairy!; Lovely decor; Very modestly priced mini-bar; Exceptional breakfast; Proper toiletries - no silly mini soap!; Loads of extra thoughtful touches.
Cons: Ummmm none!
We'll have to make an excuse to come back again for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Stairs might be a problem for some!

Okay. Its not the Ritz. So what? It's a wonderful B&B with magnificent hosts. We stayed for three nights (Room No 3, 31.10. - 2.11.) and were more than happy. The two guys are marvelous, gentle, friendly, very helpful and - yes - fun, too. They make you feel at home. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was spacious and we liked the wallpaper (red, flowers), the bed, little things like free bottled water, cookies and great soap/shampoo. Perfect for shopping and sightseeing. Everything in walking distance with great restaurants just around the corner (Anatolian Café, Sawadee and some Pizza Brasserie). Parking was no problem - found a space 50 metres from Amherst. Will be back and recommend it.

Room Tip: Room Number 3!
