We stayed at the Artist Residence for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. Upon arrival, the staff brought a bottle of champagne and a slate with chocolate covered strawberries to us. What a lovely start to our honeymoon. Room was small (as advised when booking) but bright, modern and very relaxing. Free wifi, water and biscuits were a nice... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor in a room described as tiny, they were right, however it was very clean and everything we needed was in the room. The view was looking out to the remains of the West Pier. The breakfast was superb and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, we were offered refills on our tea and... More

The lift still isn’t working so it is hump your baggage up and down steep narrow stairs in this tall and narrow Regency Building. Room 5 gives a good view over the square and to the ruins of the West Pier – plus the building site on the prom for some large tower due to open in 2106. The building... More

We spent one night here as a last minute booking. We had a compact double which had plenty of room for us and a lovely power shower with a corner seat. The staff were excellent and we loved the way you could walk through to the cocktail shack. We would book here next time!

Great little hotel - quirky, interesting, loads of odd artefacts and pictures. Room was basic, but did have all that we needed and was very clean. Staff were incredibly cheerful and oh so friendly. Excellent location for getting out and about. Car park opposite hotel was fine. Breakfast was delicious - beautifully served.
