I booked this through Expedia and it was £67 for a standard double room. On the whole it was great value and I'd recommend staying here.
If there's a better located city centre hotel in the U.K that's of the same standard or higher then I'd love to know what it is. You've got the train station next to it, alot of bars and clubs on your doorstep and all of those fantastic shops a five minutes or so walk away. No need for taxis here if you're only ever in the centre.
Loved the Art Deco features. It just added to the experience - imposing in a grand way but very unique.
I had such a wonderful view from the fifth floor of and of other parts of the city centre. It really does make a difference.
There's superb customer service at The Queens, especially when I checked out late morning one Saturday in the middle of August. The lady on reception was so warm and professional and I noticed the same when I was waiting behind a couple who were also being checked out by this member of staff. I don't know her name but she was about late 30's, blonde, local. A terrific asset to this hotel.
I was a bit nervous of getting a good nights sleep here as I read that lots of hen and stag parties stay here but I slept like a log and the bed was very comfy.
I know from reading previous reviews that some people have been put off by the net curtains, and when I first arrived in the hotel yes I noticed they looked faded. It was a bit off-putting. I think the manager replied to some of these reviews and said that they're deliberately champagne colour. I think better to avoid confusion and replace them with new white ones, though perhaps this is in the air anyway.
My inside window ledge was dirty, but everything else was clean. Surprisingly disappointing and it's the reason why I can't give the hotel a 5* rating.
Bathroom was small (see one of my pictures), but OK I suppose for one person.
I didn't eat here as I was on a budget so ate at cafes elsewhere however I think that £9.95 is reasonably priced for a breakfast buffet for a 4* hotel (but still I couldn't stretch to it - next time!).
Would I stay here again? Yes, definitely!
