We wanted somewhere near to the port as we were catching an early ferry to France. Nice old Victorian hotel, a bit tired and dated but the staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were large and very quiet as we had a sea view. We ate out so we don't know about the food but would use the hotel again, particularly for the view and private car-park

We booked a double room with sea view. Room 123 was pokey and we felt not representative of any of the photos shown. The furniture was shabby and the quilt matted and flat. We filled in the questionnaire but have heard nothing.

We stayed at the Queens for two nights this week, enjoyed it so mych we stayed for a third.

We booked a room with sea view and got 114, large room fantastic view and great shower, ticked all the boxes. Unfortunately we couldn't stay in 114 for the third night as it was booked, so we were given 110 a smaller room, but still fab and wow.. what a great balcony! Our room change over was so smooth to.

Breakfast was great, help yourself buffett.

Staff outstanding, helpful, accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. Thank you will be visiting again.

Myself and wife spent two nights at the hotel, the rooms were cleaned to a very high standard as was the food, it also had a well stocked bar. The staff were first rate, the hotel inside was a bit tired the room was of a good size but the hot water took some time to come through and the bed was very hard, but you get what you pay for

Room Tip: Third floor corner room with sea views

My wife and I having had a good walk along the seafront, parked our car in the car park and went in to look for lunch. The hotel is a little dated, but clean and bright. The receptionist was friendly and we were shown through to the bar where we had a G & T, The restaurant Manager came to collect us and took us to our table. The waitress was bright and cheerful and explained how the carvery operates. We asked for soup to stat, but as my wife is a coeliac she was unable to eat the soup, the waitress checked with the restaurant and my wife was told that they would make soup for her that was gluten free and that it would take 10 minutes. Sure enough it arrived on time. The carvery was great and the beef very good. The strawberry s and cream afterwards were excellent. So drinks to start, soup, main course, sweet and wine £54.90 not bad for a splendid lunch in a beautiful restaurant .

Very basic and quite tired, but sited right in middle of a very good selection of eating houses in Southsea. My room was clean but small with a lack of any kind of water pressure in the shower. I did get a sea view!!. Breakfast was barely warm and greasy, I can imagine being a tad cheesed off if you had to pay for it separately on top of your room rate. Staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Below the third floor if you want a half decent shower

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
