The title and all the other reviews say it all. It makes me wonder how so many similar places just get it so wrong. The guys who run the hotel really understand customers needs down to the fine detail. It might cost a little more but please give it a try when you are in Brighton

Nothing was too much trouble and they were smiling every time they appeared. The location was... More

Having been bowled over by my stay on New Year's Eve '13, I booked to stay for Brighton Pride weekend and once again was not disappointed. Lee and Marcus really do go the extra mile in every aspect to ensure that you have the perfect stay. The attention to detail here is unprecedented and it is so refreshing having tasteful... More

We made a last-minute booking for Amherst, and found that it definitely lived up to the excellent reviews. We were made to feel very welcome, and were pleased to be given an upgrade to a junior suite on arrival. The room was very pleasant and well-appointed, and Lee and Marcus were very friendly hosts throughout our stay. The hotel is... More

2nd time of staying at this wonderful place. I have to agree with many others who have stayed at the Amherst. The owners Lee and Marcus are excellent hosts. From the moment I walked into the Amherst the service you get from them is worthy of a 5* hotel. I was greeted and shown to our Junior Suite (Room 5).... More

I have just returned from my 3rd, and yet another fabulous stay at Amherst B&B in Brighton. Yet again Lee and Marcus bent over backwards to make our stay the best it could be. The quality of the rooms and breakfast's remains excellent. Our stay was full of so much fun and laughter with many of the guests, everyone feeling... More

Excellent welcome, lovely clean room, modern decor and really comfy bed. The Amherst provided everything we wanted for a short break and is just a few minutes walk from the Pier and attractions of the town centre. I would definitely recommend the Amherst to friends.

After a very trying journey (M25!) we were greeted on arrival by Marc,who promptly carried our bags from the car after giving me very clear and informative instructions on parking (on the main coastal road). The location is fabulous and Amherst is easy to find. Our room was nice and the little extra touches were very much appreciated, there was... More
