Classic hotel, with original features and well maintained. Safe parking, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, fine views of the sea front and Isle of Wight but above all great staff. Sophisticated restaurant (hard to find in Portsmouth) and pleasant bar. Charming, clean and comfortable breakfast. Close to main Southsea shopping and choice of restaurants including the Midnight Tandoori and nice walks... More

The staff were very polite and helpful. We stayed here for one night as part of our anniversary trip, the location is great we had a view over Southsea common which is very lively. A short walk from the pier and plenty of bars and local restaurants just a stones throw away. This hotel is also in walking distance from... More

It was ok, I'm not going to slate the place. But for the money, you're really only paying for the location. Nice part of town, nice views, easy walk to lots of good looking bars and restaurants. But as per previous reviews, it needs a real update or at least a good clean. Rooms, beds, bedding, the whole lot needs... More

Great service, Jason the hotel manager was particularly helpful in sorting out a room query we had. The room was amazing !! Really liked the size of the room and the sea view was spectacular. Only thing I was worried about was the balcony wall, which was not high enough. Other than that it was great. Good access to local... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding, payed £220 for 2 nights. Hotel needs updating badly, the lampshades resembled something from 50 years ago. Rooms not particularly big, and the receptionist was very stroppy when we wanted to pay cash upfront saying it was £100 deposit to do so? ) nothing stated When booking). Bathroom needed a refurb...

Given the reviews I decided to stay at this hotel, thankfully only for one night, very recently. The hotel from the outside is reminiscent of times gone by. However, inside it is rather tatty and dated. Our room was a double. It was dark and felt oppressive, I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel room with... 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
