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

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

Myself and partner stayed at this B&B and was pleasantly surprised how close to the local attractions the hotel was. A short two minute walk you were on the seafront and 5-7 mins near many of the popular clubs. Our room was on the top floor, so it can be a bit of a trek to walk up some 6... More
