We came to the Queens today for Sunday lunch, and as always a first class experience. Service surpasses everywhere we have visited for quite a long time. Melanie and the girls are so welcoming no matter how busy. It creates a wonderful atmosphere for all to relax and enjoy. It was delicious especially potatoes and the gravy!!!!! Thank you once...

A beautiful old hotel which we have stayed in before but with a party on the noise is intolerable. Party still going at 12.30. .. Do check when booking if you are looking for peace and quiet - I really wished I had and saved a lot of money.

Stayed here for two nights for a family occasion. Immediately on arrival we were impressed by the location and decor of the building. Parking was no problem, right in front of the entrance, a bonus. The lobby decor was beautiful, grandiose ceiling. Checking in was painless, the receptionist was busy so another member of staff, who doesn`t normally do the... More

We stayed in a family room at the Queens Hotel. The room was a generous size the kids loved having a connected room to us with a fantastic sea view. We arrived early and were well looked after. The food was excellent. We found the location of the hotel was so convenient for the sea front and we walked everywhere... More

The finest location in Portsmouth and Southsea, with great sunset views from the main bar. The staff here were all kind and caring and looked after our every need. The live music events and special sunday afternoons in the garden are a delight. Well organised and lots of fun, perfect for the setting and the environment. Highly recommend for a... More

The hotel is in a prime position near the sea with lovely views, but it is very dated and tired. We had lunch in the bar, which was very pleasant. The girl behind the bar was lovely and helpful and other staff seemed very friendly. The problem is the hotel needs a great deal of money spending on it. Going... More

I booked the hotel to host a 90th birthday party. From the initial visit 4 months ago with Nikki and subsequent telephone conversations and emails with the Events team of Alison, Millie and Jason in Reservations I have been impressed with the professionalism of everyone. Any queries were immediately answered and the end result was a brilliant afternoon. We hired... More

This hotel was very reasonably priced and I must commend Claire on reception who was superb in her welcome. Excellent customer service costs nothing yet has an enormous impact. The evening staff could have been more customer focussed when grudgingly serving us drinks at eleven pm - maybe they didn't really want our money!

Have stayed here a few times on business. The service is always good. The breakfast is always plentiful. The rooms always a little disappointing. Perhaps bedroom refurbishment is overdue? Overall it's a grand hotel that was once probably very good - now it needs bringing upto date. Additional parking charges also a surprise!

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
