We stayed here in room 26. It was meant to be one of their smallest rooms but we found it more than ample for two. The decor is fab, the room was quiet (no view to speak of) and the bed was smallish but comfy. We liked the feel of this hotel - an in house bar and snug room... More

We had a really great stay at Artist Residence. Our room was fantastic, with quirky artwork and lovely views of the sea. The bed and room were extremely comfortable and cosy, we slept very well. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were particularly good and the dining room is a very nice relaxiing place to sit and eat.... More

What a little find this hotel was! We were only in Brighton for one night for a party but jolly glad we stumbled across this hotel which will definitely be our first choice on our next visit. We had the tiny sea view room which was small but really cosy and very much like being at home. Very comfortable with... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Brighton and this unique little gem of a hotel made it even more perfect! Artists residence was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The exterior of the hotel was lovely, was easily spotted amongst the other hotels! The blonde girl on reception was very welcoming and gave us our key... More

Only stayed for the one (Sunday) night but saw enough to like the place. Stayed in the larger sea view room Room 23 - good view of the sea though the burnt down pier is an eyesore. Close enough to the 'attractions' if you can call them that - Brighton is looking very tired now and the pier needs serious... More

Perfect choice! Went for the bigger room and the view was amazing, the room like a cool apartment right near the sea and centre of things. Friendly guys, cool bar and great breakfast. Parking opposite or pre-book a place down the road which is cheaper but just ask the staff. Will return!

This was our second stay at the Artists Residence so we had the much appreciated discount. I booked 3 nights earlier this month for my boyfriends birthday in the medium arty sea view which had a huge comfy round bed, a fantastic mural of the Brighton coastline, and a gorgeous view of the West pier. Our breakfasts each day were... More

What a great little place to stay. The room was fantastic, clean and suited our family of 5 perfectly. The breakfast was very tasty with plenty on the menu to suit us all. Brighton didn't really live up to expectation, but maybe that was down to the weather, however the hotel didn't let us down. Our kids are aged between... More

We stayed at the Artist Residence recently for two nights and were delighted with every aspect of our time there. It is close enough to the centre of Brighton to be able to walk to most of the attractions but far enough away to provide some tranquility with some good places to eat close by. We occupied the medium sea... More
