Having stayed many times in the past we revisited for a long weekend in January to celebrate a wedding anniversary, and again reckoned it to be a lovely friendly hotel with caring staff. The sea-view rooms which we always ask for have a pleasant outlook over Southsea Common to the Solent. There are steps up to the entrance, but then... More

Unfortunately it is only the facade that is grand at this hotel. Would not recommend for business travellers. No safe in room, or anywhere to securely store laptop etc. No trouser press or iron in room. And wifi is charged for. Room are tired and dated as are the bathrooms with a two foot square shower cubicle. Colleague stayed at... More

We went here for New Years eve, very pleasantly surprised by the lovely rooms there, the staff were fantastic, the food excellent as was the singer and the dancers, however the one criticism was the DJ, who doubled as the swing singer, as a singer..fantastic as a DJ...he had no music and was relying on streaming but as he only...

I stayed at the queens for a night on the 5th Jan. I stayed in a single room that I had not previously stayed in. The room was not exactly spacious but was well laid out , complete with en suite. The staff were as usual very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was as usual... More

We found this hotel to be lacking somewhat in many areas. Clearly it was once a Grand building and may have been the place to go 40 years ago. Today it remains spacious and grand, but not in a good way. It seems tired, empty and a little run down. They charge £5 a night to park the car and... More

Fabulous Christmas Break!!! Where do i start? From the moment i arrived at the Queens hotel i was warmly greeted by the young ladies on reception, they were very informative about the change in room for Christmas morning breakfast and shared plenty of Christmas spirit. The porter Matt took myself and partners cases to our room for us before we... More

Well, in 2013 I reviewed the Christmas day dinner experience which was less than good, in 2014 we gave them the benefit of the doubt and it was superb, we couldnt fault anything. So, we decided to book again this year. The price had increased by £10 per head although there was nothing obvious extra to justify this. We arrived... More

Very disappointed. The service once seated in the beautifully decorated dining room deteriorated immediately. We were left waiting 15 minutes before we were asked for our drinks order. We had eaten our starter before the drinks arrived. It took 1 hour 45 mins for the main meal to arrive. The meal was luke warm and vegetables hard. The staff were... More

Very nice meal, pleasant surroundings and very good service. One of our party is disabled (in a wheelchair) and the staff were very helpful. I cannot fault the food or the ambience. Looking forward to returning in the near future to sample the afternoon tea package.

Beautiful decorations in the lobby and the staff were very friendly. The food was well cooked with a nice variety of pastries, cereal, fruit, full English plus toast and coffee. Soya milk was available on request. It would have been a 5 if the table we booked was ready on arrival.
