Older but clean and pleasant accommodation located in a traditional victorian house located just minutes outside of core downtown. Like all old houses, it was quite squeaky when walking around it, but other than that - a very quiet house. Super friendly and welcoming hosts with equally friendly cat. We stayed here in early July just for 1 night and... More

We stayed one night in the 'Green Room' with a shared bathroom. Everything was super clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a delight including wonderful oat cakes. Nancy was a super hostess and made you feel right at home. We enjoyed our stay very much and the conversations with the other guest. The TripAdvisor picture does not resemble the house at... More

Very nice owner, we had a good night sleep, quiet room. You have to share the bathroom, but considering price and comfort that was ok. Breakfast was simple and good. Parking free. We would go back plus wifi free and works well.

We arrived there around 7 in the evening without reservations. They were very welcoming. Our party consisted of myself, daughter, her husband and their two young girls. Were given two rooms both with queen size beds and one had a twin and the other a smaller kid size bed. The beds were comfortable. Shared a bath with the other 3... More

We spent two nights at Browns guest house. Nancy is a wonderful lady and very helpful. We had a lovely room number 3 with a very comfortable queen bed, you do share a bathroom. This guest house is the cleanest home I have ever been in. Nancy puts out a very nice continental breakfast. You will be happy if you... More

Wonderful value. I paid $90 per night and slept in an immaculately clean, charmingly decorated room. The hostess, Nancy, pays much attention to detail and the rooms are very charming and decorated with antique pieces. The queen bed was very comfortable and there was a smaller bed in the room which could be used by a child. Nancy provided a... More

My son and I stayed here recently. A mixup occurred and the room reserved for our late arrival had been inadvertently given to an earlier guest. However, Nancy accommodated us and we had beds to sleep in! A nice light breakfast was available at an earlier than normal time frame, as requested. The one thing missing on a hot humid... More

Brown's Guest Home is located right on the edge of downtown Amherst so it's just a few minutes walk to city centre and the nearest Tim Horton's. My partner & I stayed there for 2 nights in May 2015 and several times previously. Your hostess, Nancy Allen, is quite cordial and willing to discuss local history or point out places... More

I had the opportunity of staying at Brown's Guest Home in August of this year - historical, excellent upkeep to original finishing in this heritage property, amazing hostesses and lovely breakfast. I was a weary traveller and my family was welcomed as family.... will stay here again.

The host was friendly (but seemed a little frazzled), and left us to our business for the most part, which was nice. The house is beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated. The night we stayed we were the only ones staying, which made for an easy time using the shared facilities. There is one full bath, and one with just a... More
