Everything was excellent. The owners were helpful and nothing was a problem. The breakfasts were lovely and was Nice to have them in bed!.
Only winge, not enough towels. But would recommend it to any one. We will def be back.
Excellent location, less than 5 mins walk to the pier. Staff and owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room had everything you would expect and the complimentary water and crisps were an added extra! The hotel was very clean and the room was tastefully decorated and looked fresh and contemporary. We would definitely recommend the Amherst and would stay here again if we visit Brighton in the future.
Good supply of optional food/drink in our room: bottle of wine, bags of crisps etc. With fridge. They put small bottle of fresh milk in fridge at our request. Extremely helpful.
Friendly staff location to sea front and night life yet still quite quiet lovely little court yard area outside bedroom
No phone reception in basement room
Great location, just off the sea front and room was very comfortable with nice additional touches, such as complementary water and nibbles. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Floorboards creaked, especially noticeable at night when other guests moved around but can only expect this in old property!
We loved everything about Amherst Brighton, the rooms, the location and the breakfasts were great, the hospitality from Marcus and Lee was brilliant, such warm, friendly people. We would not hesitate in booking this hotel again
Very friendly staff, good value, well presented interiors.
Depending on which floor you take, it can be quite a few stairs to get to your room. Being on the top floor this was noticeable!
A lovely little hotel, pleasant staff and very good value.
Just on thing - the bedside lighting was dim and difficult to read by
Location of hotel close to bars in kemptown and proximity to beach and seafront
Hotel was a bit rough round the edges especially windows need a good clean and outside needs a lick of paint.Lack of hot water on first night culminating having to have cold showers( An offer of anything complimentary would have been nice)
We felt at home, the boys are very attentive, the rooms are clean and pleasant, we gonna return more often!! I loved !
The Amherst is located centrally and close to everything. Its best selling point is the staff who are friendly and welcoming. I arrived for and within an hour of a wedding the staff provided me with a much needed umbrella such was the awful weather that day. The room was clean had an excellent small shower room with plenty of hot water, towels, soaps etc. The room also contained a kettle and a basket of biscuits etc which was very welcome and a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent (though said to be continental) with plenty of food offered.
The Amherst is a hotel probably better described as a terraced guest house and is currently under renovation. As each floor contains two bedrooms, the narrow stairway is the only way of reaching the bedrooms - there is no lift. The staff very helpfully carried my bag. I found my room though described as a double comfortable but small and quite noisy - earplugs are provided.
Warm welcome. Marcus is lovely! Tastefully furnished with really comfortable bed. Big bottles of toiletries rather than the tiny ones that don't have enough shampoo. Inclusive continental breakfast with great coffee.
Not a great view from double room. The junior suite was much better though.
I loved the idea of fridge in the room. With 2 kids was a very good help. U got everything what u need it. Breakfast was tasty. We just loved that place. Perfect for family with kids.
Necessary to change dirty towels. That's the only one disadvantage of all staying.
Very nice Staff. Everything was just perfect.
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff
Great pre and post marathon, great hosts and the food was excellent
Lee and Marcus were so friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. There is a very relaxed atmosphere, combined with excellent attention to detail. The junior suite (room 5) was large, well appointed, and very comfortable. The Amherst is perfectly located, being a quick stroll to buzzy Kemp Town or central Brighton. We will be back!
Our host Marco was a pleasure from beginning to end. He came across as a person who is naturally vivacious and eager to attend to his guests every need where possible. He was very friendly and helpful in every way.
One can always find fault but i am not going to bother as i felt the whole experience was extremely positive and picking faults just is not necessary.
Okay. Its not the Ritz. So what? It's a wonderful B&B with magnificent hosts. We stayed for three nights (Room No 3) and were more than happy. The two guys are marvelous, gentle, friendly, very helpful and - yes - fun, too. They make you feel at home. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was spacious and we liked the wallpaper (red, flowers), the bed, little things like free bottled water, cookies and great soap/shampoo. Perfect for shopping and sightseeing. Everything in walking distance with great restaurants just around the corner (Anatolian Café, Sawadee and some Pizza Brasserie). Parking was no problem - found a space 50 metres from Amherst. Will be back and recommend it.
Being part of the party in the house next door. OK - it was Saturday night, you have to get along with that kind of stuff. But it was very loud music. I heard it even while listening to some Prog-Metal through my headset.
This is a fantastic house just off the sea front in a great part of Brighton. It's a small independent hotel; you feel like you are staying with your brother's friends or some such. This is both nice & relaxing, e.g. free mineral water, nice biscuits, but also has it's issues (see don't like.)
It is like your (or at least my) friends put the place together -- some things they did great, but the doors (e.g. bathroom, room) are hard to open & shut (problem if you have a typing injury or other hand issues), the toilet doesn't always flush easily & you have to fiddle with it, you feel bad complaining because they are so nice! Also, there's not much sound proofing between rooms, so I got woken up by a loud phone conversation one morning five hours after I'd gotten in for the night.
Great Place to Stay. Good Breakfast Very Friendly. Close to beach and shops. Hundreds of places to eat at fair prices close by We will be back
The friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Good range of bath products. Fridge with drinks and snacks if required. Great location, close to amenities.
Room could have been bigger. Although not a problem for us the stairs could be difficult for other visitors.
The Amherst Hotel was just fantastic. Really nicely decorated, super clean, friendly and welcoming. The location was excellent and the receptionist gave us a great recommendation for a vegetarian restaurant. Also when myself and my partner overslept and were late checking out, the staff we really understanding and let us stay over an hour longer without any extra charges. So total brownie points. All in all, an excellent hotel and would definitely stay there again.
Nothing at all, everything was perfect.
We loved our stay at the Amherst. The room breakfast and facilities were lovely, great location and outstanding service. Would love to return.
Only issue was with the parking. As there is no designated parking which due to the location can't be helped we had to pay for a permit to park up the road. Not a major problem but worth knowing.
