Artist Residence West Cornwall

“Eclectic B&B. Unique rooms have mural works by local artists, flat screen TVs; en-suites have free standing tubs and eco-friendly products. Breakfast room-come-gallery has recycled furniture and plenty of art. Walking distance to buzzy cafes and pubs. Chic, colourful and authentic.”

Artist Residence Penzance, Cornwall: hotel review

Friendly staff show us to the Picture Room, a light and airy double with crisp white linen and walls hung with playful graphic prints saying things such as “Rise and shine”. It’s modest rather than spacious: a comfy double bed leaves room for two stylish arm chairs and a desk with views to the neighbouring buildings. (Only the two attic rooms have sea views.)

Artist Residence hotel, Cornwall: review

Downstairs, the original small Georgian rooms have been replaced by a stripped-back white exhibition space. Bedrooms are up narrow stairs, each individually decorated in a quirky style down to the bedside lights and tooth mugs: Admiral Benbow has colourful murals of Penzance street scenes; Upcycled has a mushroom-shaped bed and Cubist iconography; An Enchanted Forest has silver flowers and trees.

The New Cornwall

Artist-turned-hotelier Charlie Newey has opened a quirky eight-room b&b in a listed Georgian house in Penzance. Rooms, each individually designed by local artists, have names like Dolly Divine or Nautical Tale.
