            Excellent location close to beaches and good class shops. View from seaview room excellent. Staff confident and helpful.

            Dinner ( the only evening we used hotel dining facilities) was not particularly appetising and not good value.

          • Single
            8.2

            Nice traditional style and surroundings.

            No heating in bedroom or bathroom with a cold persisting western wind sweeping past the windowframes.

            Old English charm. Great location. Comfortable/clean rooms.

            No English staff. As an Australian this was very bewildering. Didn't feel like I was in an English town at all.

            A lovely decorated ornate hotel with magnificent plastered ceilings with friendly staff and a great location on the promenade of Southsea.

            Nothing really

            The location

            The staff,it was old and it was not clean!!

          • Family with children
            4.2

            When we arrived the foyer was full of 16 year olds celebrating a prom. It was very loud and chaotic Thye were sat on the steps to the hotel smoking and swearing making it veru dificult to get into the hotel, It was very intimidating. There was no enough staff on reception. Someone was complaining and it took 15 minutes to even be acknowledged. We had to pay in advance . We couldnt get served at the bar for about 20 minutes. There was no table for a family of 5 for breakfast. On the second day there was a considerable wait for food as the kitchen couldnt meet demand. On checking out the bill was wrong and we were given 3 different stories as to why. The staff were openlly blaming each other

            1. Problems with the bathroom which had an unpleasant smell during our first night, the next morning after using the facilities and running the water away from the wash basin there was a gurgling and brown smelly water came rising up the bath plug outlet into the bath. Maintenance looked at it but the water continues to rise when using the wash basin into the bath. Not impressed. Not sure if macerator was the problem? 2.|It was awful having to negotiate then unending smokers at the hotel entrance and having to hold our breath because of the smoke, at one stage we had to walk past 14 people who were smoking, not an ideal way to arrive at a hotel entrance which because of the smokers the area always stank of stale smoke.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Very nice relaxed atmosphere. Only stayed one night but have previously stayed so know it a little. Nice room but no sea view,wish we had paid extra for that.

            There was no cooked buffet breakfast but had to order from waiter. This was fine. Not much fruit at breakfast.

            5.0

            Location, staff and inhouse bar.

            The mattresses are very poor and the in room tv is very basic and picure quality is poor.

            The hotel has the remnants of a bygone era in its public areas its in a great location overlooking the sea and in walking distance to most of Portsmouths attractions also the bus is right out front. The rooms are miniature but very clean and comfortable. I think for the price it was great value

            The size of the room

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The atmosphere and ambience of the hotel!!!

            Only one thing marred our experience of The Queen's Hotel and that was the traffic noise as we were staying on the non seaview side of the hotel. Any future stays we would pay the extra for a seaview room for the guaranteed peace away from the traffic noise of Southsea!!!!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            A very friendly hotel with a touch of elegance. When asked for a telephone number for an outside restaurant, the staff were happy to oblige.

            The restaurant was occupied with tribute nights so could not eat at the hotel.

            Brilliant room, lovely & clean, comfortable big bed. Front desk staff were very friendly & helpful and made us feel very welcome. Would definately stay here again.

            Checking out was what I liked best about this hotel

            I did not like the Queens hotel. It was tired, run down and excessivley overpriced. This hotel desont even deserve 2 stars. It starts with the red carpet at the entrance, filthy and grubby. The public area furnture is old and worn, the chairs dont even have any springs any more. The bedrooms are dire with no decent furniture and are tasteless. The bed was devoid of springs. The taps in the bathroom were not fastened to the bath. The towel rail was balanced such that it fell apart when you took a towel from it..Worse, the room smelled of stale sweat and the tv with reception of 4 channels so bad, it may as well not be there. This place is a rip off.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The retained 'old glory' of it's design and appearance.

            The over-bath shower
