I was a bit disappointed with this hotel, given the price. The staff on reception were friendly when we checked in and out. The room we had was clean and comfortable, but I agree with some of the other comments on here that a bit of a refurb would be good, as parts of the hotel and room were looking a bit tired. The shower definitely wasn't a power shower but, overall, the bathroom was OK. I've stayed in nicer hotels that have cost less than the Queens though.
Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked a club which was open until the early hours; but whenever I'm staying in a hotel, I always take earplugs to be on the safe side. Anyone staying in the centre of a party town like Brighton at a weekend should be expecting some noise from pubs and clubs.
The situation with breakfast really does need sorting out, however. On both mornings, there were not enough tables for the number of rooms occupied and we had to join a queue of people waiting to be seated for breakfast. I've not seen this before in a hotel or B&B. They should look at extending the breakfast seating out into the area surrounding the bistro at busy periods, such as weekends. When we did get seated, it was difficult to catch the attention of a waiter to get a cup of tea or coffee, usually you are offered this as you are seated. I would recommend that veggies contact the hotel beforehand - we didn't do this and my husband was left with very little choice for his hot breakfast. Oh, and as mentioned by someone else, the scrambled egg was pretty grim and the only choice of egg available.
The Queens is in a very convenient location and is adequate, if overpriced. Would I stay here again? Possibly, but I would look at other options first.
