The Artist Residence hotel in Chapel Street is a very unusual and quirky treat of a hotel. Each room has been painted by a different artist. Ours was painted by Jo Peel, and somehow she had managed to recreate in our room the exact view that we could see out of our window, which was of the Admiral Benbow pub (an excellent pub where we happily downed a couple of pints of Doom Bar). The room was beautifully furnished, very comfortable, and the whole hotel a delight. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Chapel Street is a fascinating and beautiful part of Penzance, full of history with some really lovely architecture, and this hotel has got to be the best place to experience it.
