The Artist Residence London: A truly bespoke hotel experience

Ever fancy walking into somewhere and immediately feeling at home?

The Artist Residence London is a 10-bedroom award winning hotel you need to add to your bucket list.

With individually designed rooms and an all-day restaurant, it’s the perfect hideaway whether you’re visiting London or just need a chance of scenery.

In an elegant Pimlico townhouse, this cosy boutique hotel is a 6-minute walk from Victoria Station and a 13-minute walk from Sloane Square.

The focus of the Georgian townhouse is on art. Big, bold and gorgeously dressed.

There’s personality in every corner of the hotel, from the wooden cladded bathroom, to the snuggly arm chairs by the fire.

Offering a intimate experience, it’s quickly become a local favourite.

Once checked in, there’s vintage furnishings and rustic wooden floors in each of the 10 rooms.

All feature free high speed WiFi, a flat-screen TV, a DAB radio, air conditioning and an en suite bathroom with designer fittings. It’s perfect for a working weekend, or somewhere to relax.

On the ground floor you’ll find the The Cambridge St. Cafe which offers a hearty breakfast, delicious juices, milkshakes and an exciting seasonal lunch and dinner menu, too.

They use local, free-range and organic ingredients wherever possible, like meat from Macken Brothers in Chiswick, fish from Daily Fish in Camden and fresh produce from Solstice in Covent Garden.

Dishes on the menu include butternut squash risotto with burrata, amoretti biscuit, pine nut, sage, a sirloin steak, pink fir potatoes, purple sprouting, malted shiitakes, smoked anchovy butter. Plus Roasted guinea fowl with king cabbage, trompettes, pear, chestnut and winter truffle.

If you’re looking to drink on, there’s also the Clarendon Cocktail Cellar, mixing hand crafted, art inspired cocktails in an old pub cellar below The Cambridge Street Kitchen.

It’s become a popular spot in locals not just occupants, so it may be worth booking your dinner in advance.

A top tip is to try to reserve a table on the “pass”, where you’ll get a a front-row view of the chefs at work, cooking dinner.

With affordable, retro rooms, cool cocktails and great food The Artist Residence is worth checking into.

Rooms start from £225 per night, and are quickly filling up for 2017 – so book in advance to avoid disappointment!
