The positives - quite a lot of onsite parking, friendly and professional staff, reasonable value, reasonable food & a spacious bedroom.
The major negative - we had absolutely NO SLEEP due to the shocking absence of acoustic insulation between rooms and floors. You could hear conversations from all adjoining rooms, even drawers being slid shut, but the 'icing on the cake' was the stag party above who held a noisy gathering in their room from 5 a.m. for 2 hours. We have lived and stayed in countless older properties before of all eras (i.e. long before acoustic buildings regulations), each with varying degrees of later insulation which does temper noise levels, but never as non-existent & noisy as the Queens Hotel. The hotel is fully aware because they have a poster up offering ear plugs (which made no difference due to impact sound of feet), and the night porter did ask the group above to quieten down, but all to no avail. We gladly departed as early as possible.
Perhaps guests respectful of others stay in the week, away from weekends, but we won't be visiting this hotel again.
