Ampersand was the perfect get-away. We loved everything about it. Ken and Robert were the best. Absolutely the best ... The deck looking over the bay was so relaxing. The backyard garden was a work of art. The rooms could not be more comfortable. A wonderful place to stay.

The inn is for sale. That should say it all. We found the owners to be quiet cold and unfriendly. There is no AC in the main part of the house so at 90 degree it gets really hot. Deck furniture if you call it that is cheap plastic and just left stacked in a corner. The towels are like... More

Booked at a great rate on Tripadvisor for 2-day stay in P-town. House was very nice - hosts Robert and Ken were wonderful. Patio set in backyard for bringing in something if you don't want to eat out a great idea. Quiet neighborhood with a 3 minute walk to all the activities of P-town. High recommend this guesthouse.

We've stayed at the Ampersand twice and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Provincetown. Robert and Ken are gracious hosts who are happy to help you, and their guesthouse is beautiful and impeccably maintained. We love staying in Room 9, right off a terrace that offers fine views of the harbor and west end--perfect for drinking our morning coffee... More

I have been going to Ptown for over 25 years and have stayed in many guest houses but this guest house is the best one by a long shot. I have been staying in Ampersand for the past 7 years or so because once I stayed here I did not want to go anywhere else. Ken and Robert, the owners,... More

We stayed here last night and had a fabulous time!! Ken and Robert were great hosts! The location is perfect to walk to town and in a beautiful upscale area of town. The muffins in the morning were delicious and warm from the oven... We look forward to staying here again!!!

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 The room was outdated.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.
