My daughter had her wedding reception here last month and I have to say a huge thank you to all of the staff for making her day exceptional.
From the cleaner to the manager, all staff could not do enough to help. I stayed here for 2 nights: my room was well presented, very clean and comfortable, not to mention spacious. Our breakfast was included for both nights and the selection of food on offer was vast and of a high quality.
My daughter chose to have an afternoon tea for her wedding breakfast - this was truly delicious. Again the selection and quality was impressive with many guests commenting that it was unique and memorable. Staff during the wedding reception worked so hard and were attentive and polite all day. Tarik the manager ensured the day ran smoothly and had the best hospitality skills I've seen in a long time.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone and intend on returning soon to enjoy more of the hotel's food and facilities.

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.
