This would of been a 2 out of 5 star review if it was not for the great bar staff.. especially the ginger chap.. We stayed at the Queens to attend a nearby family event. Although, it is an impressive building, certain parts need overhauling and are dated. First off we were charged £5 to park at the hotel, which... More

Came here for my anniversary and booked a double room, they gave us a bed that was just bigger than a single. Freezing cold shower and a extremely squeaky bed. Very plain room. They did give us our money back as we booked for two nights but didn't fancy staying another after the first.

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting friends. Hotel is on the sea front and we had a lovely sea view room. Hotel is dated but what you would expect for an old building. Room was clean and the bed was comfy. Hotel is near to the smaller shopping centre and about 10 minutes drive to the larger outlet centre... More

Pleasant venue, Edwardian genteel. The hotel was comfortable, clean and the staff a young, friendly, welcoming and obliging team. Our room, double with seaview pre-booked on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis, was disappointing. Spotlessly clean of course, but smaller than,our previous visits. The bathroom was not user friendly for older guests. No grab handles to facilitate getting in or... More

Stayed here on a weekend away, perfect room with amazing sea views. The friendliest of staff every time we needed them. Ordered room service and only paid the price on the menu, really enjoyed the food. Beautiful hotel, would definitely stay again.

We stayed for one night, for the night before The Great South Run and paid £235 for a family room and £150 for a double, breakfast was extra. I assume these are not normal prices and were inflated due to the location in relation to the events of the weekend. I am afraid I found the prices outrageous for the... More

Just be warned their website is showing new fast wifi which at £180 per night for a room you of thought would be free. This is not the case you get 60mins free then its £5 per day from there. Pretty shocking where most hotels now have free wifi now adays. Also the car park we had to spend £5... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The original Queen's hotel was known as Southsea House and was built by the architect Augustus Livesay, in 1861. It was then a large private house owned by Sir John and Lady Morris and was later transformed into one of the first hotels in Southsea by William Kemp Junior, this is when it became known as the Queen's Hotel. In the late 18th century the Queen's Hotel had a yacht club that stood behind it called the Royal Albert and was also surrounded by woods, which were then called Stone Woods.On December 8th 1891 in the early hours of the Sunday morning a disastrous and fatal fire occurred. Aided by strong winds it raged until the whole of the premises had been completely gutted. The Hotel was rebuilt in 1903 by the architect T.W.Cutler into the splendid building that stands today, complete with its Edwardian baroque style in brown terracotta. ... more   less
