My partner and I have visited Provincetown a number of times, and we always stay in the West End. This was the first time we were able to stay at the Ampersand (fully booked on previous occasions). We stayed for a week. Found the owners Ken and Robert to be very friendly and helpful if we had any questions -... More

The owners are nice, professional. The room was outdated. the TV w/built in VCR was a blast from the 70's. Bathroom very small and shower kept leaking. All faucets/light fixtures in bathrrom quite tarnished and rusty. Furniture quite dated. Room smelled moldy. It just felt unclean to us. The location is absolutely fantastic. there REALLY needs to be some modernization/face-lifting... More

My partner and I have visited Provincetown on 14 occasions since 1996 and for the past three visits stayed at the Ampersand. The owners are friendly and professional, the rooms are clean, and the location in the West End is convenient for downtown and beach access as well as being very quiet (great for sleeping with the windows open).

It was our second stay in Ampersand guesthouse, for us it was heaven. Quiet and yet very close from Commercial street and Herringcove beach. Very reasonable prices for Ptown, very nice coffee and fresh cakes in the morning, owners are extremely discreet yet always attentive to your needs.

Year three and we have become more than fans & repeat guests of the Ampersand. We stayed at the property two more times this season. One time, however, we couldn't get the roomy studio apartment that we usually book. It really didn't matter: the different room, although smaller, was just as nice, clean and cozy. During our stay, we had... More

We have stayed at the Ampersand in the past so our expectations were set appropriately. We like the convenient West End location and the reasonable rates. It’s a comfortable walk from the restaurants and bars on Commercial Street and it’s walkable to the beach. The house itself is about 200 years old with quirky charm. The upper deck has a... More

My husband and I had stayed next door at the Oxford House for years and were devastated when they closed. We decided to try the Ampersand when we were in town one weekend during the off-season a couple of years ago. We stayed in the studio, and it was fine, nothing fancy at all, had the feel of an older... More

This was our first time at the Ampersand, and the experience was everything we could have hoped for. The hosts were professional, gracious and extremely helpful and always respected our privacy. Our main goal on this vacation was to relax, so we didn't mind when it rained or when that fog rolled in. The house is in a delightfully quiet... More

We have been coming to Ampersand for several years and it never fails to delight. I have never had the same muffins twice! The hosts/owners are delightful and what I love the most is the different group of people each time we are there. The conversations vary from the ridiculous to the profound...the grounds are beautiful, the house comfortable and... More

We stayed at the Ampersand while attending a wedding this past week-end. Owners were great-very friendly and helped us with directions to town and the event so no stress. The room was in a small building adjacent to main house with beautiful gardens all around so we had a lot of privacy and seemed like having our own apartment. Loved... More
