Hotel of the Week: Win A Stay At Artist Residence
In this week’s Hotel of the Week competition, we’re giving you the chance to win a one night stay for two in one of the Artist Residence suites in Brighton, Oxfordshire, Bristol or Penzance – including welcome drinks & breakfast. Read on to find out about these gorgeous hotels…
Artist Residence Brighton
The story of the Artist Residence group began 14 years ago when Justin and Charlotte Salisbury first met as students. Justin’s mum, who’d just bought a Brighton guesthouse in need of renovation, was seriously injured in an accident and 20-year-old Justin stepped in. Having no
idea how to tackle the redecoration, he filled the listed townhouse with artists, asking them to decorate the rooms in return for free board. And so, the first Artist Residence, successful and buzzy, was born in Brighton. It was soon joined by four more. The Brighton original has sea views and retro-style bedrooms ranging from tiny crash pads to a huge suite. The newest editions include three fabulous apartments – one sleeping four guests, one with a balcony – and all with high ceilings, original features and sea views. Each individually decorated room also features vintage furniture, organic Bramley bath and body products, limited edition art prints and Nespresso coffee machines. There’s also a relaxed neighbourhood hangout serving breakfast and cocktails.
Artist Residence South Leigh, Oxfordshire
When it opened in 2017 this was a new departure for the burgeoning Artist Residence group of funky, art-themed hotels that have sprung up courtesy of Justin and Charlotte. The energetic couple, complete with a new baby, headed out of town to leafy Oxfordshire and took on the Mason Arms, a well-loved local inn in South Leigh, stamping it with their inimitable sense of style. There are now five stunning bedrooms upstairs and a further three suites in the stables and outbuildings, plus a cool shepherd’s hut in the garden. Original features have been retained and restored, auction houses and reclamation yards scoured and modern art set against William Morris wallpaper. The restaurant features art by the Connor Brothers, Ben Eine and Lucy Sparrow, while the kitchen produces hearty and rustic British food (think classic fish and chips, and rump steak) in a fun and friendly setting.
Artist Residence Bristol
When Justin and Charlotte were hunting for a site for their latest Artist Residence hotel they settled on an old boot factory in Bristol’s artsy St Paul’s community, a stone’s throw from the city’s buzzing centre. To start with, the building had all of the qualities the pair typically looks for – a nod to the past, original beams and exposed brick walls – to which they added their signature industrial-luxe style, an eclectic mix of vintage and boho furniture and a collection of original, specially-commissioned artworks by local artists. The 23 rooms in the boutique hotel range from the super-cosy Shoe Box, which has arched floor-to-ceiling windows, to the vast Artist Suite – think Georgian cornicing, views over leafy Portland Square and a roll-top tub in the bathroom. The idea was to create a proper, vibrant neighbourhood hang-out so there’s a real emphasis on the social spaces that are open to everyone: a coffee shop, bar, casual all-day restaurant, intimate dining room offering a seasonal menu, garden and event spaces for private hire.
Artist Residence Penzance
Artist Residence Penzance brings a slice of eccentric charm to the historic seaside town. With 16 eclectically decorated bedrooms, three luxe suites and a cosy three-bedroom cottage, the revitalized Georgian pile is a unique seaside inn, perfectly situated for daily forays to local beaches, trips to the Isles of Scilly and just a short stroll to the pubs, restaurants and bars of Penzance town centre, the unique art deco lido and a view of the fairytale that is St Michael’s Mount.
