Artist Residence London

Pimlico, London

A small, trendy hotel, very much of its time, with oodles of style, stunning bedrooms and fantastic staff


10 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This gorgeous small hotel is a bit of a game changer, a new template of British cool, a space designed wholly to exercise your pleasure receptors. It proves resoundingly that small is more beautiful than big ever can be and while large hotels will try to copy it, they’ll fail to pull it off, unable to match the intimacy or the lovely staff who look after you all the way. So what do you get? A small slice of heaven between Pimlico and the King’s Road. It’s a phoenix from the ashes, a Thomas Cubitt pub recently rescued from neglect. Inside, you find fat sofas in front of a roaring fire in the sitting room; pop art and exposed brick walls in the cellar cocktail bar; then the Cambridge Street Kitchen, a lovely new restaurant serving excellent food – banana pancakes for breakfast, crab burgers for lunch and salt marsh lamb with toasted almonds for dinner. Bedrooms are flawless: cool art, chic fabrics, the best beds, power-showered bathrooms. Smaller rooms are divine, bigger rooms have sofas, the suites have free-standing baths. Buckingham Palace and Battersea Park are both close. Don’t miss it.

Relaxed, cool, arty, different – the complete opposite of corporate. We loved our stay here - very comfortable bed, baskets of treats, super-friendly, humorous, helpful staff and a great breakfast in The Cambridge Street Kitchen next door.

Fab place - original, quirky, deeply comfortable, amazing service, lovely unusual pieces of art throughout. Without any pretension. What a find.

Charlie & Justin

Justin Salisbury started his small boutique chain almost by accident when he took over his parents run down guesthouse in Brighton when he was just 20. He did that place up on a shoestring by inviting local artists to decorate the rooms in return for a free stay. This turned out to be his winning formula and together with his wife Charlie they now have Artists Residences in Brighton, Penzance, London and Oxfordshire, and there’s a fifth opening in Bristol in 2018.
