Artist Residence Hotel & Gallery is a truly unique concept. Our art hotels aim to redefine the hotel experience into a fun & exciting experience.
The A.R Values
What makes us tick? That’s simple. Artist Residence is about great hospitality, unique art & design and individuality. We combined these passions to create an exciting customer experience in a creative and inspiring environment. With each room a spectacular piece of art in its own right, we resolved to create a cool, hip and refreshing hotel for guests to enjoy. We want to redefine the hotel experience.
A.R Brighton Beginnings
What’s that? The A.R founder was just 20 years old! Yes, that’s right. Young entrepreneur Justin Salisbury landed upon the A.R Brighton Hotel whilst still at University. The stunning sea-views and central location were perfect! In keeping with the vibrant art scene, local Brighton artists were chosen to create the fun ‘Sleep in a Gallery’ hotel rooms. A new hotel design & vision was born, without the hefty design hotel price tag!
And To A.R Cornwall
Why to Cornwall, you may ask? Well that’s simple. Some of the finest beaches in the UK, truly spectacular scenery, fresh air, good food and with so much to do! Cornwall is perfect to take that holiday or short break you have been hampering after. But ‘Why Penzance’? Penzance and its sister town, St. Ives, are known for its thriving arts scene and history with the biggest population of artists living and working here after London!
The A.R Mighty Renovation Project
Wow, where do we start! Dilapidated and dusty, wood chipped wallpaper, stained swirly carpets, broken floorboards and a crumbling interior, we were in for a mission and a half! A dedicated team went in and voila… 1 year later this 1600 Grade 2 Listed Georgian House is fully renovated back to its former glory days. With each our boutique hotel rooms a totally unique piece of art and design, inspiring Penzance Gallery, simple café and laid back bar, we are committed to pure enjoyment and creativity. Our Motto = ‘Sleep, See, Drink, Eat and Be Inspired!’
