The Guardian: 'Oupost in Penzance'

Take a look - interest is being drummed up in our 'outpost'!

"The thing is that over the last few years the boutique hotel concept has become so standard that it's very hard to stand out," says Justin Salisbury, the 22-year-old founder of Artist Residence, which opened in Brighton two years ago, to be followed in May this year by an outpost in Penzance. Salisbury himself isn't an artist, but all the staff he employs are. And while the prospect of a fearsome landlady meant many approached B&Bs with trepidation, now the chance to meet an owner who is plugged into the local art scene is part of the selling point.
