The location of the hotel is great for Southsea and Gunwharf Keys. We used the hotel car park which we felt was reasonable and convenient. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable, huge bed and great views. Small niggle, the bathroom door was a bit stiff and would have liked another shelf to put toiletries on but the shower was... More

The bed was a super kingsize. The bathroom, however, was not. There was literally an 12" floor space. It was really clean and lovely friendly staff. It is excellently situated for days out at the beach too

The location cannot be bettered. The car parking is most convenient and off-road. Although the Hotel is slightly faded Edwardian grandeur, it is clean, welcoming and attractive. The staff are professional, efficient and accommodating. We have always chosen a sea view room and would recommend this as essential to take full advantage of the wonderful views across Southsea Common and... More

I stay at the queens hotel regularly, whilst the building could do with some maintenance and a refresh the staff are excellent and cannot do enough to make the stay as easy as possible. Also the breakfasts are very good too. Let's hope with the plannin permission they have got they can really modernise the facilities.

Nothing much to add to the general theme of most other reviewers. In summary: Grand building and reception area: Our room on the small side, small gap between end of bed and the wall; very small TV ; worn dark wood hotel furniture and doors; weak shower; Breakfast OK in large airy room; nice staff; plenty of car parking room...

We stayed with friends as a base for the Goodwood Revival, good car parking, lovely grand entrance lobby, polite staff. Room was functional with a very small bed that was supposed to be a double, decoration tired and no hot water in the tap, but it managed to get tepid after a while! On the one hand we were pleased...

When we came here before, we stayed for three nights and were so impressed we always intended to return. I could not have been more disappointed, from the moment we arrived at reception. This was only a one night stay and on arrival at was presented with my two room keys and a couple of forms to sign. I was... More

A really attractive building in a great location. Efficient and friendly reception and bar staff. The bedroom (245, sea view) was a good size and clean, with lots of wardrobe space. The bed was very soft, to the point of rolling in to each other, but a good size. The bathroom was clean with nice quality toiletries and soft towels... More

We were delayed by large traffic delays on the road to Portsmouth and consequently did not get into the city as early as we had wanted. Finding a place to stay was difficult in that the city does not appear to have a centre . The Queens hotel had one room left so we were told. We ended up after... More

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
