It is worth the small extra charge to get the superb sea view, we also found the staff to friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and fresh, and the buffet breakfast was of a good quality. We were pleased to be able to park our car off the street for no charge, and walked everywhere during our stay.
Some of the hotel is showing its age with some wear and tear in places, and this is clearly being addressed steadily.
Loved Portsmouth, and would stay in the Queen's again because off it's location and good helpful staff.
L@@k for the offers, and pay for the sea view.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

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
