Sea Views & Brighton Spirit

If you could condense the spirit of a town into one building, Artist Residence Brighton would be it. Creative, bohemian and downright eccentric, this unique boutique hotel at the head of Regency Square was reborn when we sent out an ad offering artists free board in return for their services. As a result, each of the 24 rooms is a blend of quirky original artwork and local character, with eye-popping sea views over Brighton seafront and the iconic West Pier.

Downstairs, the Clubhouse is a lively all-day neighbourhood hub, with light and airy spaces for a laid-back brunch, settling in with your laptop and a coffee, or enjoying cocktails and a feast of mediterranean small plates with friends.

Things to know

Checking In & Checking Out

Check-in is from 3pm, but you are very welcome to arrive early and leave your bags in our luggage store whilst you head out to explore or relax in our clubhouse.

Check-out is 11am, but if you would prefer a little more snoozing time just let us know on arrival and we can arrange a late check-out for £20 per hour.

Parking

We do not have on-site car parking. However there is an underground car park directly opposite the hotel, situated under Regency Square which charges up to £18 per 24 hours.

Alternatively Regency Secure Parking is situated at the rear of the hotel and takes pre-bookings for up to £14 per 24 hours.

Our Location

The hotel is approximately a 15 minute walk from Brighton train station, and just a short walk from all the main attractions, shops, restaurants and activities in Brighton. The hotel is set back at the head of Regency Square on the seafront, and whilst there may be some street noise it is usually a little quieter than the city centre – but close enough for those who want to be at the heart of the action!

Bar Opening Times

Our Clubhouse is open daily from 8am ’til late for drinks and bar snacks, and for breakfast from 8am – 10am.

More information and menus can be found here

Bringing Dogs

We welcome dogs in the Clubhouse and in a selection of our bedrooms – you can see our dog friendly rooms here.

Please note, there is a surcharge of £15 per dog, per night, to include Lily’s Kitchen organic dog treats, bed & bowls.

If you’d like assistance with your booking please email us at [email protected]

Accessibility

For the main hotel building we do have a small lift that fits up to 2 guests. Our rooms are located over 4 floors above ground floor. Our Below Deck rooms are on the lower-ground floor located underneath the restaurant. Please note that the building is Grade II listed and the only entrance to the hotel is via five steps leading to the front door, with small steps and narrow corridors throughout the building.

Our Sea View Apartment Next Door is located on the 4th floor, accessible by stairs only, via a separate entrance to the main hotel building.

Families

The restaurants and bars are very popular with guests and locals alike and do take on a party vibe, especially at the weekends, which may not be a suitable environment for young children. Please also note that the building is Grade II listed and some windows are lower than usual with no safety bars. Our balcony rooms have floor to ceiling windows which enables the guest to access the balcony at their own risk. Some may feel that the building may not be particularly well laid out for young children.

Front Desk

A member of staff is available 24 hours a day.

Soundproofing

The building was built in the 1820’s and as much as we have tried to soundproof the rooms, there is still a bit of noise from room to room. If you are sensitive to noise please let us know and we will do our best to allocate you one of the top floor bedrooms. Our building is full of Brighton charm with single-glazed windows, and although we are on a quiet square there may be some passers by (and seagulls) where we are unable to control their level of noise.

Lost Property

Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for items left on our property upon departure however every care will be taken to ensure these are returned to you in a timely manner.
