I have just spent four days at this hotel. The room was on the second floor with a sea view and I must say it is one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in.The staff were extremely polite and efficient .the few things that let it down were the free wifi, which was almost none existent and the television only having bizarre channels.The tea and coffee in the room was also bizarre that they only put biscuits for one when there was clearly two people in the room. I will be returning next year I hope they have sorted these niggly problems out and I think it would also be beneficial if they reduced the price of their menu, to get more customers in to the restaurant.
- 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
