Had an enjoyable one-night stay here last year. Pleasant room, nicely decorated. Pleasant staff to deal with. The hotel is close to the sea front and a short walk to town. Parking availbility is possibly the only downside.

Lovely room we had a Junior Suite with a view of the sea. Great location lots of really nice restaurants close by and within very easy walking distance from town centre. Crowning glory of the Amherst though are your hosts Marcus and Lee who offer the warmest most helpful welcome you could wish for. Will be coming back!!!

The Amherst is perfectly located close to the center of Brighton and a stones throw from the beach. We stayed in a junior suite which was tastefully decorated in keeping with the rooms beautiful original features and spotlessly clean. the bed was extremely comfortable and the bedding was of a high quality. I don't eat breakfast (before lunchtime) so, can't... More

I was only there for one night but can honestly say I have never stayed anywhere more welcoming and comfortable. Every detail was thought through with everything you could possibly want. A real home from home. I will most certainly be back and can't recommend highly enough, Thank you Lee and Marcus

Travelling for 1 night business trip. A warm welcome from Marcus. My room was spacious with a sofa, wifi and wine - what more can you want! Close to restaurants, bars and some night life Gorgeous comfy bed and great breakfast! Would definitely recommend - will be booking again.

We had a three day break here tagged onto a business trip. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The room we were given was large and spacious. There was a sofa opposite the tv, this was a nice touch. They offer a better than normal free drinks/snacks box alongside a paid mini bar. There is a complimentary light breakfast.... More

Me and my partner have never been hosted and welcomed so well anywhere! Lee and Marc were ready to help in any way they could and do the best breakfasts you can imagine. The location is perfectly balanced being close to the sea, good restaurants, the city centre and Brighton's many cultural spots :) We stayed for 4 nights in... More

Lovely location for a chilled weekend break. Close to sea and the pier, lovely Kemp Town with it's cafe's and antique shops, I'd recommend Amherst over The Queens Hotel which is where we had stayed before. Beautiful rooms, quiet and off the beaten track, perfect for a relaxing stay!

Despite a very short stay, this well appointed B&B left a great impression. Really well located, reasonably priced and comfortable. Great 'light' breakfast also included. My daughter described Lee's porridge as the 'best shes ever tasted'! Will visit again, highly recommend.
