They hold a lot of events here such as banquets, weddings and church services. You get a warm welcome at the reception desk. They do carveries on a Sunday and live music too. The rooms are expensive but quite luxurious.

If you are looking for a grand older style hotel, for a relaxed holiday, then this is well worth looking, but as a business hotel, I think that some of the more modern competitors are more suitable. The rooms was very impressive and the room temperature was ideal. We had a great view, but the room was still very quiet....

Having enjoyed a stay here previously, we looked forward to NYE celebrations And we were so impressed. From the friendly welcome on our arrival, to a lovely sea view room through to the actual celebrations and finally breakfast everything was superb. The brochure showed great promise and the actual event was beyond our expectations. All staff were so friendly and...

A group of five and our first Christmas break away, the Queens did not let us down. We weren't looking for a 'tinsel and turkey' rather a chance to let someone else do all the work, and that's what we got!

My mother in law had lunch with 5 elderly friends on Wednesday. The staff were very attentive in helping her friend in a wheelchair. They all loved their lunch in the bar and enjoyed the views over the Common towards the sea. They also received excellent service from Victor.

Previous visits including Sunday dinner had been dreadful so wasn't full of hope when the work Christmas do was booked here. However, the hotel redeemed itself slightly with a good quality main and desert. DJ and entertainment was good not amazing. Bar staff weren't great. Music wasn't overly loud but was asked to continually repeat my order each time I...

Was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The Hotel looked classy and the Car Park was ample the location was very good......what could possibly go wrong ? The ground floor was lovely and the staff seemed friendly, if a bit wooden. Paid on arrival after being told there was a charge for Wi-Fi and the Car Park which was not mentioned when...

No hot water just a weak dribble from the shower and the beds feels 20 years old. They have the oldest flat screen TVs I've seen! The only+ fair internet at cost..... Breakfast can be a fair to average but no 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
