We stayed overnight at the Queens after arriving late from the Cherbourg ferry. Staff were very friendly and very professional. Our rooms were comfortable and the breakfast room and downstairs lobby are beautiful. It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel and I would be delighted to stay there again

Our stay at the Queens hotel was very enjoyable, even though we only stayed overnight. We arrived in the afternoon and went out sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We came in late and went to the bar to watch a world cup match. We were too late for food but the staff recommended some take aways around... More

From check in to check out, I was thoroughly impressed during our stay. The room was presented very well, simple to view & large enough to move around in. A very relaxing place, the atmosphere stayed relaxed throughout our time in & around the grounds.

I had booked a double room and paid a little extra for a sea view.However the room was found to have no shower, not even one attached to the taps. I thought this was very poor considering I could have paid less at a budget hotel which would have a shower and missed the shower even more as the last... More

This hotel deal was picked up from a booking site. We had stayed here previously so had no hesitation in taking the booking. The hotel entrance is still very grand but the bedroom was a bit small, but the bathroom was very roomy. Furniture is dated (presumably to fit in with the ambiance of the place). Room was clean. Good... More

My partner and I travel from Devon to stay at The Queens for a few days every month. We have done for a year now...and we will always continue to do so. The Queens is by far the best Hotel in Portsmouth. The view is priceless...The rooms are always clean ...The food is divine and nothing is too much trouble... More

Booked up for afternoon tea for 22 guests. Had no idea what to expect but was not disappointed. Due to other bookings we had our own room and although it was the breakfast room it didn't detract from the beautifully presented table and we got the garden view with lots of light. We had two waiting staff who were attentive... 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
