I had a 3-day stay at Amherst.
I have stayed in a single room ( number 4). The room was a bit small, but ok for one person. Bathroom was very clean.
There was a box with chips, cookies and other tea-making facilities in the room. The bed was very comfortable. The weak point of the room 4 is that its window view was towards the neighboring building. But since there was no window in front of mine - it was ok.
The breakfast is served personally - you choose in the form what you'd like to eat next morning and what time, and it will be waiting for you. It is nicely done and very tasty. The lady making the breakfast and cleaning the rooms is very friendly and nice to talk to.
The guy at the reception (co-owner of the B&B) is friendly and helped me when I needed it.
The B&B is located 15 minutes walk from the Reading Station, where you can take a complimentary bus with free Wi-Fi inside towards the Thames Valley Park.
The B&B provides free Wi-Fi internet, which was fast and the signal was strong.
Overall is a very positive experience and I would recommend this B&B.
