“location v noise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

just had one night in the Queens hotel, main reason for booking was location and price. it's right on the front, a few minutes from the pier, and surrounded by shops bars etc. we parked in regency square car park, (£10 for 24 hrs) and left it until we left brighton. we was in a room on the 4th floor but was still woken by party goers at 3am then again by the beer delivery at 6am. it's a old building so not much the hotel can do about the noise but if i stayed again i would ask for a quieter room, if that is possible given the location, ya can't have it all. the room itself was very nice, clean with a flat screen tv and free wi fi. the shower was good and powerful, no problems with temp like some other posters have mentioned, we could see the pier from our room. the breakfast was good, i didn't really like the cooked part but was happy with the cereal and toast, hub had it all and enjoyed it. would stay again in a quieter room, location was excellent and far cheaper than other seafront hotels

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Was prepared to give this hotel a glowing review, but then on our second night, a huge storm hit Brighton and the noise of the wind howling and something slapping against the outside wall was enough to try one's patience. I had read that there was a noise problem, but hoped for the best.

We were given a really terrific room on the fourth floor, in that it was very spacious and overlooked the water. And the staff are really helpful, friendly, and informative. The best staff experience I've had.

But the noise gives me pause. When I woke up at 3 a.m. I noticed that from the street side of the room, you could hear people below talking and thumping music (Bobby McFerrin). It made me wonder how bad that would be if the wind weren't howling and the storm blasting. If we had a room facing inland and on a lower floor, the partying noise could be a nuisance.

Other than that, it was quite good value for the price.

We stayed at the Queens for 4 nights. The hotel was nice and our sea view was ace! Breakfast was a bit limited choice wise. You are able to leave luggage in a secure area after check out. Location to the centre was great and within walking distance.
The spa in the hotel isn't too bad -- went when there was a rainy day afternoon.

Very old with creaky uneven floors. Make sure you get a sea view room. We had a very large room with a comfortable bed. The room needed decorating and the furniture was very tatty. I love my showers but this one was awful, no power to it and slippery underfoot. The room was clean but some public areas need attention.
Very good location for everything to see in Brighton, literally a few minutes walk from The Lanes and the Pavillion.
The food was ok, breakfast is buffet style either cooked, fruit or cereals but not much choice. If you want a fried or poached egg just ask but be prepared to wait 10-15 minutes. 2 for 1 cocktails for £7 between 5 & 9pm in the bar are worth a try.
Worth staying here for the location but don't pay the full price. The cheapest price I found was on their own website.

Room Tip: Definitely get a sea view room on the 3rd or 4th floor.

This hotel will be good value in the summer but in the winter the small radiators are not good enough for the large rooms, bad nights sleep feeling the cold followed. Not enough warm water for a comforting shower either. Winter aside i would defiantly use again, it'll be good value!

a very large traditional old building that has been internally tastefully modernised . the rooms are comfortable and bright with tea/coffee making facilities also bathrooms are clean with plenty of hot water. The breakfast is plentiful and very tasty, it is a self service buffet. style but there is everything fruits, yogurt, ceraeal, full cooked, rolls, toast juices and of course tea and coffee.
There is also a pool and a bar area . The hotel is on the front so some rooms have seaviews as does the dining room it is also just round the corner fromThe Lanes with it's bars, restaurants and shops. I've stayed here 3 times and would happily do so again if visiting Brighton.

Room Tip: if there are three people travelling the 3 bedded family room was excellent value.

I booked this hotel via lastminute.com for just £29pp, which included breakfast. Check in was easy and staff very friendly, hotel was clean and our rooms were modern and well sized. We booked a city view room, which was on the side of the building but were luck enough to be able to see the pier from our room! Breakfast was average, service was excellent but food could have been better.

Can't really complain for the little money we paid though, excellent hotel, well recommended.
