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.

This is the 3rd time we have staying this year and as we were told it was like staying with family!! Lee & Marcus are such a kind friendly couple and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. We stayed in room 7 which is a junior suite & again very tastefully decorated with a lovely hot shower... More

Awesome hotel. The location is great. Comfy room. Lee & Marcus make you feel so welcome. I've never stayed in such a friendly hotel. The complimentary breakfast was good. I've stayed in a fair few places, all different star ratings but you can't put a price on great customer service. If I ever go back to Brighton for a weekend... More

Excellent in all respects: bed, breakfast, shower, cleanliness, location and most importantly the hospitality of Lee and Marcus. Nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't have chosen better for three days away from London for a couple fast approaching 70

Fantastic, very friendly and helpful staff. The owners have a good sense of british humor and they make you feel at home immediately.The hotel has just 10 very individual rooms and this makes this place quite unique. Very good service. You never have to ask twice. They anticipate customer needs very well.

My boyfriend and I stayed in room 3. Everything far exceeded our expectations. We were pleasantly welcomed by one of the owners. On our arrival we were shown our fully stocked room with comfy bed, high ceilings, complementary water, tea and snacks. The owners were extremely accommodating making it very clear we were welcome to ask them for anything. After... More
