The light streams into a room in a special way when you're by the seaside. The sea-front rooms of Artist Residence bask in this light and make the most of it. The style of decor is simple, with a homey feel. Vintage touches give that signature Brighton spirit.
Justin's parents owned what once was the family B&B. When he dropped out of uni, Justin threw himself full swing into the family business. He was inspired by Brighton’s creativity and wanted to create roots within the artistic community here. He sent out an ad for local artists to decorate the rooms in return for board and soon enough hundreds of artists responded. Giving the hotel its new name - Artist Residence.
If you could condense the spirit of a town into one building, Artist Residence Brighton would be it. Creative, bohemian and downright eccentric, this old townhouse (at the head of Regency Square) was reborn when an ad was sent out offering artists free board in return for their services.
As a result, each of the 24 rooms is a riot of quirky original artwork and local character, with eye-popping sea views over Brighton seafront and the iconic West Pier. Guests can dine at Dan Kenny's refined 20-cover restaurant The Set and enjoy tapas and draught craft beers in the buzzing Set Bar.
