We stayed at the Queens for 3 nights to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our room was large and clean with one huge bed and a single. The beds were comfortable and the room had 5 drawers to store your clothes. The wardrobe was unfortunately one of the 'front to back' variety, presumably to make room for the iron and ironing board stored at the side - useful for some. There was an excellent hospitality tray with Tetley Tea, Nescafe coffee and decaffeinated coffee and lovely shortbread fingers, restocked daily.
The hotel has free Wi-Fi, it worked better on the second floor than the third, but it was a useful addition to services.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and breakfast was excellent. The continental selection was the best I have seen in a British Hotel - slices of fresh fruit, cheeses and meats, pastries, croissants, cereals, tinned fruits, fruit juices etc. The owner, Mr Sneddon was on duty at breakfast nearly every day and was charming - nothing was too much trouble. There is a large cooked breakfast menu too including porridge of course and Arbroath Smokies.
We didn't eat lunch or dinner in the hotel, but some of our friends did and they recommended the food both for taste and price.
The drinks in the function room were very reasonably priced and there were plenty of bar staff to serve you. My only observation would be that they didn't bother to come out and collect glasses when they were not busy, but this could be a hotel policy, or maybe that as they were quite young, they didn't think that was part of their duties.
The buffet for the function was very nice with bot hot and cold food provided - everyone on my table enjoyed it and some went back for seconds!
The hotel is in a good location for the shops and Discovery Centre near the station - well worth a visit.
The reception staff were friendly and the dining room staff too.
I would stay in the Queens again without hesitation and heartily recommend it.
