We stayed for three nights - two rooms, one for me, my wife and our youngest, the other for our 14 year old. My wife and I had a nice room with a good view of the sea, but we were concerned that when we arrived there was a broken plug socket coming away from the wall that was potentially... More

Lovely helpful staff. Great breakfast included but don't be in a hurry as it is cooked to order. A good location with great Lebanese restaurants nearby on Preston Street. We booked late and paid for a sea view. We had room 11 on 4th floor. The lift was not working but this was ok for us but we had not... More

Just returned home from a fantastic weekend in Brighton and stayed in the lovely, quirky Artist Residence! I took my partner there as a birthday treat and the staff baked a chocolate birthday cake for him! Such a nice touch and very yummy too! The hotel itself is lovely – we had a medium room with sea view balcony on... More

This posh sea-view B&B, with boho pretensions, does what it does exceptionally well. The occasional downside tends to be the flip of one of the upsides. For example, the premises were originally a couple of Regency houses so there’s plenty of character, but the floorboards squeak a bit. Perhaps most importantly, the location is handily central… but can be very... More

I have a suspicious nature, so was expecting to find something wrong with the Artist Residence, but the good news is - I didn't. It was utterly charming and quirky and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the second floor, looking right out over Regency Square and towards the wreck of the West Pier. There was... More

I stayed here for a long weekend and I was thoroughly satisfied. I had the compact room which was small but very charming. The residence is kitted out with all sorts of funky artwork and interior, it's a very unique place. The location is perfect as you're literally minutes away from the high street, seafront and pier.
