If you are looking for a good central location, close to the sea front and amenities at the Gunwharf, etc, this fits the bill nicely. Large car park, friendly staff, nice reception area with comfortable seating, good bar (lacking single malts - a definite minus). Rooms were fine with sea views, BUT, the double bed was tiny!

Our room looked like it had recently been refurbished. Very clean hotel throughout and well worth the £105 a night we paid for a double sea view room. Plenty of parking on site for which there is a £5.00 charge, close to shops and restaurants. Would return. Only downside was the lack of wifi in the room.

Four of us had a lovely afternoon tea on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately we hadn't been asked if we had dietary requirements when we booked but our waitress Megan could not do enough for us and alternative sandwiches were made for our friend who has digestive problems. We started with a lovely glass of champagne each. We had plenty of finger... More

I've stayed at the Queens a number of times. The previous visit was disappointing but gave it the benefit of the doubt and gave it another go. Big mistake! Standards have continued to slip and this once great hotel slides into an abyss of soul-less, overpriced nothingness. £91 was paid for a twin room (room only!), which isn't cheap for... More

First impressions are good, with a grand lobby and ornate dome. Check-in took ages and there were a large queue of people waiting (all from the same company). They should have got an additional member of staff to help, especially as it was all pre-arranged. Now the room. Hmm, not very impressive. Okay it was large and was probably quite... More

Nice hotel but very expensive for what you get. Small but comfortable bed. 1 towel each. Water is very hard to control temperature making showers a lot of effort (I guess it's because it's an old building). £10 for breakfast is too high. And an additional £5 per night to park car which was not clear until we came to... More

Beautiful building but sadly not to the same standard inside. I agree with the reviewer who said it was like fawlty towers. Very few staff and no internet even though we were promised this on arrival. Room was large but with very little furniture and towels on the window sill! - presumably to stop condensation. Will go to Holiday Inn... More

The Queens is an imposing Victorian edifice. The reception is small and the staff professional. However on this visit the lift was out of order for the first 24hrs. My room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was fine except the tap fell off the shower. The TV was a bit small and was not tuned very well. The hotel... More

I had a sea view room looking out across Southsea Common, not the biggest room but perfectly adequate. The hotel is a typical old grand building, much nicer in my view than the modern shed-type hotels built nowadays. Lovely views from the bar, the staff were helpful although I didn't eat at the hotel, choosing instead a local restaurant as... More

This hotel was a bit like Faulty Towers with one cheerful fellow who was our only barman in two separate bars, he took our order for dinner and was also our waiter! The warm crab and leek starter was cold (lukewarm around the edges) and this was on a Friday night. The carpet could have done with a clean otherwise... More
