West Cornwall has drawn artists from around the globe for decades, lured to this beautiful part of the country by the quality of the light and the warm welcome of a community of like-minded people.
The passion for art in this corner of the county has now extended to a 17th century, Grade II listed building in the old quarter of Penzance; resulting in a truly inspiring place to stay in Cornwall.
In this fun and friendly hotel with its 22 bedrooms, Lookout Suite and 3 bedroom cottage, the art isn’t just on the walls, in some cases the art is the wall. In the Admiral Benbow room, for example, Falmouth art graduate Jo Peel has painted a vivid, cartoon-like portrait of the bed and breakfast and the famous local pub next door across the walls and the ceiling. Whilst other rooms are packed with enough art to satisfy even the most enthusiastic gallery visitor.
Prices from £110 per night. For more details click here.

The chance to set out from this quirky hotel by foot and explore the art galleries, cafes and restaurants – all just five minutes from the seafront with its iconic Art Deco lido.
