We have been coming to Ampersand for several years and it never fails to delight. I have never had the same muffins twice! The hosts/owners are delightful and what I love the most is the different group of people each time we are there. The conversations vary from the ridiculous to the profound...the grounds are beautiful, the house comfortable and...

We stayed at the Ampersand while attending a wedding this past week-end. Owners were great-very friendly and helped us with directions to town and the event so no stress. The room was in a small building adjacent to main house with beautiful gardens all around so we had a lot of privacy and seemed like having our own apartment. Loved...

The Ampersand is in a perfect location to experience Provincetown's West End. It's a quite street, but easy access to all the shops and restaurants on Commercial St. It's not a very bad walk to the beach either. Maybe a 15 minutes walk to the trail to the beach. The porch and the room I stayed in had great views....

Often, staying at a hotel / guest house maybe very good on the first visit, yet fall short on the second. I am happy to report that the Ampersand was as good as it was a year ago. All the positive comments still stand. The gentlemen who run the guest house do a great job. The house is beachy, pleasant,...

Very nice accommodation at a good price. The Hosts Robert & Ken are very welcoming and gracious. The place is immaculate and quiet. We wanted to hit the beach on our last day and they let us park there and use the bathroom to change when we got back. The room was nicely equipped with window ac unit.

The size of the room was good. The bed was comfortable enough - nothing that great - but fine. If they did a rehab, they could put in new ones I suppose. I did not like the bathroom at all though. The tub was very old and the shower head was probably 25+ years old. There was rust on various...

My better 1/2 & myself have been vacationing in P-Town for about 16 summers now - we have finally found a great one to return to (since our 1st "favourite" B&B went "Seasonal" & then Apartments/Condos (The Archer Inn.) Well, The Ampersand ("&") Guesthouse has been a welcomed "find" after a couple years looking & trying other options. The rooms...

My dear friend, who works in a high end hotel, recommended this quaint full of character guesthouse to me. They were so welcoming and inviting. I even got a orientation from the owner on some amazing places in Provincetown during my stay. I will stay here again!

As my other reviews indicate, I am not a big B&B person and usually try to avoid them -- at all costs. That said, it is hard to get around not staying in an Inn or B&B in Provincetown unless you have a large group and can rent a house or condo – or deep pockets. Friends recommended the Ampersand...

We've stayed at a lot of B&B's in P-Town over the years, but none compare to The Ampersand Guesthouse! The owners, Robert and Ken (and staff ;-) are warm, friendly and ready to make your stay a memorable one!! The house is meticulously cared for and simply beautiful. The rooms are filled with period antiques and modern amenities as well....
