I booked this in the early autumn and stayed with a lifelong friend. The Artist Residence is a unique quirky place and appears to be well run but we were dissappointed as when we booked online with Booking.com they showed pictures overlooking a lovely bay which led to the impression that this was their 'seafront view' when clearly they were just library pictures of the area.... The Artist Residence is actually located in a central streeted position in the town, overlooking rooftops to the harbour, but it is very convenient for all local restaurants and amenities. However the staff were charming, friendly and helpful and the food served was excellent. The highlights of our trip in Penzance was the superb Penlee House Gallery and Museum and nearby Trengwainton Gardens.
