Excellent accommodation! Jim and Gwen are friendly and hospitable. The room was Victorian with a modern bathroom, TV, wifi and all amenities. The food was plentiful and delicious. The 1898 Georgian home is full of original antiques as well as Inuit art.

This is a lovely 115 year old house with beautiful features. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is to die for! Great setting, great food and very friendly owner/operator. We plan to stay there again.

This B and B in the small town of Amherst, Nova Scotia was a wonderful find. An 1890's Victorian with all its original stained glass windows and carved wood staircase and mantels. Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms, beds, and bathrooms on the second floor although a bit dark on the way up. Lights over the bed that were actually bright enough... More

We entered The Regent B&B by the side door through the office which was so cluttered that we thought we had made a huge mistake booking a room here. The first floor was dark and very musty, however the second floor where the bedrooms are was lovely - a welcoming sitting area and very nice guest rooms and bathrooms. The... More

When I finally found out how much we paid for the room at the Regent, I was shocked at my husband. I immediately went on Trip Advisor, and started to read the reviews. I then read one very negative review, and I was ready to be unimpressed. It was well into the evening when we arrived, but even in the... More

My husband and I just spent 6 weeks traveling through Nova Scotia and PEI. We stayed at 1 hotel, 4 inns and 8 B & B's. This was our least favorite B & B mostly due to the very musty smell in the house. It was overpowering to us. We were actually surprised it hadn't been noted in any TA... More

We chose the Regent B&B for a one night stay in Amherst based on TripAdvisor reviews and were glad we did. The location is ideal for walking around Amherst. The house itself is a wonderful mix of original architectural details and the owners' collections of art--one of those places where you spot something new each time you walk up the... More

The Regent is a beautiful, grand house in excellent original condition. Jim, the owner, was waiting for us the next morning for our breakfast in the elegant dining room. We started with fresh fruit salad. That was followed by blueberry pancakes. These pancakes were light and the blueberries burst in my mouth. We had recently stayed at 6 different b&b's... More

Great place. Although we only stayed one night, the room was very comfortable, the property very interesting and Jim was a great host, who served an excellent breakfast. He also recommended Duncan's Pub, which was a good location for a meal.
