A lovely hotel with a certain old world charm and elegance. The staff were friendly and helpful with a well stocked bar. Spacious foyer and stairways with a great double room. We had a sea view and although the weather wasn't great it still afforded excellent views of the sea, boats and the Isle of Wight.

Rooms tired and dated. TV had very poor reception. Parking charged at £5. When checking out, they tried to charge me even though it had been paid for by my employer and it took over half an hour to sort out, making me late for work.

The rooms are clean and tidy. The staff was perfect in any means, starting from the first contact, reservation, welcome and checkout. The hotel itself is very charming with a unique charm. Breakfast offer the full range of continental and typical english food.

Nice room. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. We just stayed here for one night to attend a local function. The booking was straightforward and reception was excellent. We needed a pass for the car park and fortunately did not need to use our car during the evening or we might not have had a space.

A grand old hotel but be warned, there's an extra charge for everything. A sign says free parking for guests, but not so, there's a parking charge. You only get one hour free wifi (get with the 21st century please) and no breakfast included. Plus, you have to sign a 'pledge' that you don't intend to smoke in the room....

The outside of the hotel and the ground floor public areas, bar, restaurant etc where lovely and we thought we had chosen well with this hotel. The staff were very helpful and efficient. We booked 6 single rooms and 1 twin room. The single rooms were really tiny and the twin stank of stale cigarette smoke. All the rooms we...

We attended the party, the theme being 'Dance of Dragons', with the room set out with a red & black colour scheme, along with many props made & placed around the dining hall to fit in with the theme of the evening, a 'Game of Thrones' feel. The staff had made a real effort to dress up along with performing...

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
