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.

Stayed here 12-19th May on a group booking made months ago. The hotel is in a good spot, a short walk from the beach/funfair/hovercraft. Those of us who asked for (and paid extra for) single rooms were vastly disappointed with the hot, cramped rooms with little or no

Dear Judith Thank you for your review, I’m sorry you were not happy with the single rooms but I’m glad you found our location so convenient. As you say we are refurbishing the hotel which will address the issues you have raised. We do have a side entrance with a ramp which leads to our lift. I hope you will return again once our refurbishment has been completed. Kind regards Queens Hotel Management

Good staff, with great rooms and a powerful shower with hot water. The beds are comfortable however the hotel is currently being decorated. Parking is also free outside and there were plenty of spaces.
