Welcome to Amherst, Brighton.

So far it's been a pretty colourful summer and there is so much more excitement coming over the next few months, I'm not saying anything...

At Amherst, we care about you and your experience with us. 

We have put a lot of thought into our spaces and the services we offer but more importantly, we are working hard towards living and supporting a sustainable life whilst still offering you great style, comfort, and a place to relax in our colourful sea-side city.

Our small team has a mix of thirty years experience in the hospitality industries and we are passionate about people and creating positive experiences.

Whilst it's summer we'd really recommend a dip in the sea, after all its only a few minutes away...

Pop in for a few nights, all welcome.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience at Amherst Brighton! The manager checked us in and he was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The room was big and airy with a sea view, and the hotel was a few minutes walk from the pier so couldn’t complain. Everyone was really accommodating and we even got a later checkout and left our luggage there for later collection. Would recommend! There were some complimentary bottles of water and milk in the mini fridge, plus coffee and tea.

Bed was very comfortable. Location was great. Oliver the hotel manager was extremely helpful and wanted to get everything right. We liked the facilities in the room, including recycling bin provided.
