Stayed for two nights to have a bit of quiet time away from families. Lee and Marcus are charming, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Room comfortable and clean. Ensuite nice and shower good with lots of hot water. Close to everywhere you want to go. Would definitely stay again

My boyfriend and I had a great couple of days in Brighton for Easter. Found the Amherst guesthouse on Expedia fairly last minute and very glad that we managed to bag the last room. Excellent value for money in comparison to everything else that was available. The location was perfect, 5 minutes from the pier and other main attractions. For... More

I stayed in room 8 (double bed, for single occupation) and I was very impressed with the room. It was pristine and stylishly decorated. The bed was very comfortable, there were plenty of soft pillows, and a very clean shower room. The wifi in the room was quick and easy to access. Breakfast was wonderfully organised with lovely cafetiere coffee.... More

We had a lovely two night stay last weekend. Marcus and Lee are very friendly hosts. The junior suite (no 5) is well appointed with sea views. Breakfast is good. We liked the kemp town location as it is near to everything. Thank you, we will be back soon!

Very happy with our choice of the Amherst for a 2 night break. Nothing was too much trouble & Marc & Lee were very genial hosts. We had room 5 which was a suite so you had more room with a sofa, coffee table & small dining table with 2 chairs. Spotlessly clean with very comfy bed & pillows &... More

I stayed in the junior suite (room 3) and had a great stay. Great room, comfy bed, powerful shower, great breakfast (upgraded to full English for £6), warm welcome. I will definitely be back, what a great little guesthouse at the top of kemp town, only 10 minute walk to Central Brighton. Brilliant.

This B&B/hotel is ideally located being close to the front, the pier and the centre of town. It is far enough away that it has its own local life of bars, pubs and restaurants. Marco who runs the the B&B is genuinely funny and can not do enough for you. He is extremely helpful and not looking to rip you... More

Marcus was a very welcoming host, the junior suite was smaller than we expected but very cosy and bed was very comfortable. They have some lovely little touches, like breakfast in your room (for a small charge), the complimentary option was very filling and nicely presented and delivered by a very charming gentleman, the little items in the bathroom cabinet...
