Last week we were lucky enough to have our wedding breakfast (afternoon tea) and evening reception at the Queens Hotel. The afternoon tea was incredible, a real statement. Our guests were amazed by the presentation and quality. Many have said that they will be booking to return to have this again. The staff throughout the hotel were brilliant. From cleaners... More

It will take me some time to find a better hotel in Portsmouth. On arrival and throughout the stay the staff was lovely. They were always there to answer questions we had. The hotel location was perfect, it is a little bit out from the high street but it is perfect, none of the trouble and noise associated with staying... More

Greeted by unhelpful recetionist who told us our room wasn't ready when it fact I had previously been advised we could have it earlier. 2nd adjoining room was more like a cupboard. Wallpaper hanging off the wall. Noise from street below even though on 3rd floor. Food at wedding reception was stone cold.

We thought we might be there for a couple of hours but ended up staying into the early evening. No attempt was made to ask us to leave... More

Old building with all of the nuances and special challenges expected. Nonetheless, the atmosphere is quiet and simple with normal service and usual (frugal) UK amenities. Walking distance to many activities, restaurants. A quick taxi hop to city center. No complaints. Request a sea view room with balcony - lovely.

My family has a number of birthdays within a couple of weeks of each other, so we booked to go to the Queens for an Afternoon Tea. Because there are a number of children we booked for less people than there were, but that did not affect the service and courtesy of the staff who found room for everyone with... More

First day we got there the staff didn't seem happy or like they wanted to be there. We went to our rooms and our window was looking onto a brick wall when we asked... More

We always stay at the Queen's when we come to visit my family in Portsmouth. The staff are always very friendly and go out of their way to help you. Nothing is too much trouble . This weekend we ate in the smaller restaurant Libby's, it is a well decorated, cosy space. The food was delicious I had the amazing... More

I was very lucky and taken to the Queens for mothers day and as always it was wonderful. Very busy but so relaxed, very well done on such a demanding day. The food was yummy as it ever is and service fantastic by the ever smiling faces. Thank you for another excellent day.

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.
