PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Artist Residence Brighton hotel is more than a pretty 19th-century façade; this central Brighton stay has views of the sea and West Pier, reclaimed industrial decor, artist-designed interiors and the Clubhouse space, a multipurpose hang-out zone where cocktails flow and tasty seasonal eats are served.

PACKING TIPS

Light layers for seaside strolling and cycling, an artistic ensemble for the evening, to fit in with the hotel’s creative aesthetic.

ECO-FRIENDLY

Residence uses LED lights and green cleaning products when possible, reclaimed materials and eco-friendly Farrow and Ball paint. The hotel supplies guests with bath products from eco-conscious brand Bramley, and the restaurants and bar recycle. The fish served in the restaurant is from sustainable sources and locally sourced produce is used whenever possible.

ALSO

Guests with mobility issues should request assistance when climbing the five steep steps up to the hotel. There's a lift, but it's a little bit of a squeeze.
It's hard not to covet the hotel's impressive art collection while staying here. It's hard to pick a favourite, but we were especially tickled by Andy Doig's neon washing-line. If you feel the same, you can see more of his work at his beachside studio, just down the road.

USEFUL INFORMATION

For group bookings for 5 or more rooms please be aware that in order to secure a reservations you will need to pay in full for all rooms at the point of booking and provide a valid credit card to save on the reservation. We require 7 days notice of cancellations or amendments.

Rooms 

The 11 ‘artist’ rooms have been individually decorated by local and international artists, and 13 ‘house’ rooms have up-cycled furniture and limited-edition prints. For views of the sea and (what remains of the) West Pier, pick a south-facing room. Room 23, a bigger ‘house’ room, has large double windows, art prints and a claw-foot, roll-top bath with a sea view.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There's a sociable feel to the hotel's cafe, an eatery, work hub, bar and gathering space where you can start your day with morning coffees and end with creative cocktails. It's composed of several spaces: a relaxed café with sea views, exposed brick, a fireplace and locally sourced artwork (we like Andy Doig's cheeky washing-line, complete with neon pants), and a laidback lounge. Serving breakfast only, kickstart your day with chilli- and lemon-spiked avo on toast and bacon baps with a spicy Bloody Mary or brunch on marscapone-slathered buttermilk pancakes.

Liquid Bliss 

The cocktail bar is in the building to the right of the main restaurant, featuring tropical prints and quirky neon lighting. The bar itself boasts views across Regency Square to the sea, and West Pier, and artwork by David Shrigley and Dave White. The bartenders are enthusiastic about their craft, working from a reassuringly concise menu that focuses on refigured classics and all-new creations, all of which are concocted by the bar’s lead mixologist in line with the seasonal ingredients used in

Experience the Extraordinary 

Although it’s set back from the beach, Artist Residence has views of the sea and the remnants of the West Pier. The hotel is at the Hove end of Brighton, but still within walking distance of iconic sights; it’s central. If you’re a first-time visitor to Brighton, carve out some time to see the Royal Pavilion, the former seaside pleasure palace of King George IV. It’s a little bit of history and a lot of ostentation, but thoroughly regal. Then swing by Brighton Pier and let your inner child loose on the carnival rides and nostalgic seaside fun. Poke around the independent shops, art galleries and boutiques of the Lanes, where you’ll also find plenty of spots to stop and refuel. If you’ve been inspired by your creative surroundings, find limited-edition art prints for your own abode at Unlimited or Art Republic. Nature lovers can watch ponies and deer frolic at South Downs National Park, which is only a 20-minute drive away, and spend a day rambling through the countryside. Or borrow bikes and cycle along the beach to Hove. In the evening, check out the entertaining offerings at Brighton Dome; you may be able to catch a concert, dance performance or quirky spoken-word showcase.

Transportation 

At the top of Regency Square, looking down to the sea, Artist Residence is close to Brighton’s beach and has everything you'd want on your doorstep: galleries and acclaimed restaurants, the Pier and Brighton Pavilion.

The closest major airport is Gatwick International; from there, Brighton is a 30-minute train ride or a 45-minute drive away. Cars are available to hire from Avis at the airport.
