From the moment we viewed this grand lady we knew it was for us (we viewed many). Throughout the organisation of the wedding, including our unusual requests, the staff were always accomodating. The food & service on the day were exceptional. We stayed in total for 4 nights so experienced the hotel as both guests and bride & groom. As guests, the room was outstanding with superb sea views & the breakfast was excellent with a large choice of quality food. The food in the restaurant on the eve of the wedding day was top quality. The mussels were in a fantastic sauce & the fish was cooked to perfection & was good value. Again the service was excellent with them coping easily with an unexpected request for a table of 15. We had a total of 100 people, with most staying at the Queens for 2 nights & having spoken to them they all had high praise for the hotel & intend to return. Some of our guests only book 5 star and stated "what a find, what a gem". Thank you Queens for making our wedding day the one we had always dreamed of & see you soon.
- 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
