5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Loved our 2 night stay here, small room but well planned, beautifully decorated, comfy bed with great quality bed linen. Great laid back staff and brilliant breakfast, included in the price if you book direct with the hotel. Fantastic location with a sea view , near enough but also far enough from the centre of Brighton.

Artist Residence in Brighton is an absolute gem - fantastic staff and beautifully designed. We stayed in a small double at the top of the building which was perfect. The only slight issue was that as the hottest day of the year (which was a happy coincidence!) the room was absolutely stifling even with windows open. Staff were happy to... More

We have stayed on a number of occasions here and despite the somewhat gimmicky and style over substance appearance that the calling card of themed rooms might suggest, this hotel "chain" (well - there were three Artist Residences when I last checked which is hardly a chain but this does signify a company that is growing fast) does actually pull...

We loved this place. If you want a quirky, laid back & comfy stay, then look no further - this place is fantastic. We stayed in the medium sea view and were not disappointed. It is near the centre, but also has that seaside vibe, so you don't feel claustrophobic. The staff were great and breakfast was outstanding - really... More

Lovely hotel. Super friendly staff and delicious breakfast. We had quite a small room (think it was called the cosy double so we knew it would be on the small side). It was a bit hot, woken up by the seagulls but that's more a symptom of Brighton. Comfy but slightly small bed, lovely bathroom but only room for 1.... More

We spent two nights in a twin room. We had a nice room albeit overlooking the rubbish bins. Staff are very friendly and keen to help. Breakfast was very good and good choices. Maybe fans in the rooms would be a good idea? On the warm nights we had to have the windows open, unfotunately the seagulls were incredibly noisy... More

Our stay at Artist Residence Brighton was relaxing and enjoyable, and went above and beyond our expectations. We had a medium sea view room that overlooked Regency Square, and was impeccably decorated and outfitted. There was an adorable mini fridge with great minibar selections available for purchase, and the complementary still bottled water, tea bags, and caramel wafers added a... More

I have now been here twice, with another break booked for August. The medium double was a really nice size and the bathroom in the room designed with reclaimed wood was really quite cool and unique. The staff are always absolutely wonderful and quite happy to store your bags after check-out if you are going to leave later in the... More

This is a really special place. From the very friendly welcome to the well-equipped lovely rooms to the super cocktail bar, this place is a real find. Set at the edge of Regency square, close to the beach, restaurants, pubs and shops, the location is perfect for a weekend in Brighton. We would definitely recommend this arty hotel. David

Just fabulous. I can only speak for my room, which was outrageously comfortable, beautifully decorated and overflowing with unctuous bathing, cleansing and moisturising products. The bed was huge and lovely, the shower humorously but needlessly complicated steampunk-style to operate but eventually excellent (and also huge) and the views from the windows, (and balcony, excitingly accessed via the sash window) seaside...
