Perfectly situated for daily forays to the beaches, and the Isles of Scilly, a short stroll from the pubs, restaurants and bars of Penzance town centre, the unique art deco lido and a sea view of the fairytale that is St Michael's Mount. Head to St Ives for a day out, visiting the iconic harbour and the ever changed Tate gallery.

Located in Penzance town centre, Artist Residence is in walking distance from a range of local bars, cafes & restaurants for you to explore during your visit.
Artist Residence Cornwall is part of the following Inspirations:
"A mere five minutes walk from the quayside in Penzance sits a Georgian house, reworked in colourful and quirky hues by the team that created Artists Residences in Brighton, Oxfordshire, London, and Bristol. Here the company's style incorporates driftwood, exposed brick and big sofas with a beer garden that offers hammocks for the seriously chilled. The dining room, "Cornish Barn" serves up hearty portions of local meat and fish in an intimate and relaxed setting, with a log burner for chilly days and a sun-trap of a garden for Cornish summers.
The team behind Artists Residences, Charlotte and Justin, describe their hotels as “fun and friendly places to eat, drink and sleep”. That description certainly suits the breezy and cheery ethos of their Penzance residence.
The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the Cornish peninsula. Penzance sits at Cornwall’s narrowest point, making it easy to drive north for the Poldarkian north coast or south for the more mellow coastline around Mousehole and Newlyn."
"I love a bit of bohemia in a hotel and this place has it in spades. Firmly part of the funky Penzance vibe, the Artists Residence – a Georgian house bang in the centre of town – gently sings la-la-ness while managing to offer up top notch service at the same time. Quirky bedrooms designed by artists invite you to just hang out and take a chill pill, the cool bar lounge and beer garden are very hard to tear yourself away from (you may well become engaged in conversation with any one of the delightful staff) and the food a masterclass in relaxed eating. Think amazing coffee and pastries or American pancakes at brekkie to ribs or lobster in the hotel’s own smokehouse come dinner time."
