There are 17 rooms in total at the Artist Residence, 10 of which are painted feature rooms. Each one is completely different from the next in terms of decoration, however several categories of room are available starting with the double non-sea view. The walls of room number one, painted by Matt Sewell, depict a hilly foreground and a mountainous background with a road criss-crossing the terrain, while the exterior of the bathroom has been turned into a giant bus making its way along the aforementioned route. The room is furnished simply with Ikea furniture and includes a desk with a couple of chairs, bedside tables and lamps and a double bed with leather headboard and leaf motif bed spread. Amenities include tea and coffee facilities, flatscreen television on the wall and an open wardrobe. The bathroom, which is accessed through small double doors and which has not been given the same makeover as the room, features a shower with bench, hairdryer and Be Kind toiletries from Gilchrist & Soames. Also available in this category are triple rooms or family rooms with a double and a single bed. The junior room is the first of the sea-view ones and is available with or without balcony. Looking out onto Regency Square and the West Pier, they have a little less space than the previous category but this is compensated by the views. Lennard Schuurman's New Atlantis room has the same amenities as the double non-sea view while the room signed Hutch, the best known street artist in Brighton, is described as "glorifying the spray can with a bit of 50s erotica". Mel Sheppard's superior sea view room was the first to be conceived and is a magical storybook told in multicolour and boasts a round bed, bathroom with tub and the same great view of the sea front. Other rooms in this category include Andy McLynn's version of the Brighton sea front in a simple blue and white mural and Pinky's trippy journey to a surreal world which includes prints for sale. If you'd prefer a room which is a little sober then other non-painted ones are available such as the suite with its low four-poster bed, antique furniture and mish mash of objets d'art purchased by the mother of one of the hotel's founding members at a local auction house. A crash pad is also available for up to six guests featuring a similar mix of styles and very soon a bed that folds up into the wall to gain extra space.
