Artist Residence Cornwall

Penzance, Cornwall, southwest England

Fun and funky art hotel with good-value rooms and apartments, plus a sociable eatery

The London and Brighton branches may be cooking up a storm, but head towards Land's End and you'll find this funky Grade II-listed townhouse has plenty to shout about, too. Here in Penzance, local artists were given guest rooms as blank canvases and the freedom to fill them with flair - each room is utterly unique. A clutch of simpler house rooms and apartments have since joined the gang. Choose your favourite and stay in your own private masterpiece with all the comforts of top-notch bedding, ensuite shower rooms and eco-chic toiletries.

And the fun doesn’t stop there. The ground-floor is devoted to The Cornish Barn, a rustic meets industrial-style informal restaurant serving up tasty Cornish fare with a Deep South twist. Grab a booth, order a beer, and feast on buttermilk chicken followed by maple pecan pie! Walk out of the chunky red front door and you’re moments from Penzance’s cafés, pubs and galleries.

Highs

  • A fresh vibe - from the imaginative rooms, to the fully-equipped 1- and 2-bedroom apartments
  • The affable young team can keep you up to speed on anything from the Cornish art scene to the nearest sandy beach
  • A buzzing informal restaurant and delicious breakfasts packed with local produce
  • A great base for exploring this gorgeous area of Cornwall, and minutes from the Scilly Isles ferry
  • Fantastic value for money

Lows

  • Some might find the art a little too off-the-wall, but the house rooms and apartments are more understated
  • The soundproofing could be better in some rooms
  • Rooms are compact and some of the fittings are feeling a little tired
  • There's no car park
  • There's a 2-night minimum stay and a supplementary charge over Bank Holidays

Cheerful, upbeat, a bit scatterbrained - this is the best possible introduction to Penzance...
