This is a very upmarket B&B in a great location. The rooms are comfortable with funky art everywhere, but what really makes it wonderful is the spectacular restaurant, The Set. We ate both lunch and dinner there and the food really is superb, inventive, great quality and relatively inexpensive. Followed by a couple of drinks in the in-house bar, The... More

Open to non residents, this is an oasis sitting at the top of Regency Square with views down to the sea. Expertly crafted cocktails, great service in an eclectic environment. Have a chat with the staff for recommendations, don’t be shy! But watch out for the influx of guests from the restaurant next door as the evening draws close to... More

After my stay last year, when it never stopped raining, a truly stunning weekend in Brighton! Once again, as a single traveller, I was well looked after, from a friendly check in from Celia, to departure. I stayed in a 3rd floor sea view room with an amazing round bed! Fabulous cocktail in the 'in house' cocktail bar - well... More

We received a nice warm welcome at Artist Residence, and our room was lovely, characterful and spotlessly clean. The cafe and bar overlooked the sea, and the place was just a short walk from the pier, Brighton Laines and more great restaurants. Breakfast was also very good - I had the smokey baked beans on a bagel, and (the following... More

We return to a big chain hotel in Brighton every year and this year we wanted a change! We decided on the Artist Residence after seeing pictures and reviews. We loved it! Three friends shared a sea view 'house' triple room which was comfortable, airy and bright and had lovely views of the sea and old pier. The staff were... More

The wife and I stayed at the Artist’s Residence for 3 nights on the week leading up to the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. It’s quirky, arty, boho but not in an achingly hipster way, very welcoming and with a great location to boot. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly (thanks Cecilia). The... More

We spent one night at this hotel, visiting Brighton for the afternoon/evening, then going on to Gatwick the next morning to pick up our daughter. It's a quirky hotel but none the worse for that. The staff were very helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived which was a shame but the staff were very apologetic and offered us... More

We stayed at The Artist Residence due to a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. The interior is quirky and each room is individual. Our room was very technicoloured and hippy with an amazing sea view. Pros were free caramel bars and bottles of water, really nice toiletries and a comfy bed. Cons were only 1 key... More

We had a brilliant stay at this refreshing quirky hotel. We loved its decor. After a 3 hour car journey and not knowing Brighton that well, it was such a relief to step from the underground car-park up to the hotel. Our check-in was speedy and much to our relief we were able to grab a meal in the informal... More
