One night stay in Newport purely as a social outing. Room on the small side but spotless, bed was very comfortable. No complaints as the room was cheap for a Saturday night. We were aware prior to travel that there could be noise from the Wetherspoon's pub 'nightclub' and warned at reception. Didn't hear a thing!!

Would stay there again.

This hotel had some considerable pros and cons. It is cheap, but it is also very noisy. It was booked at short notice (same day) for a single night, a Saturday night, meeting up with my son who was staying at another hotel in the town for a planned event we were both attending on the Sunday in Cardiff. I did know it was run by JD Wetherspoon, but this was not necessarily a problem as I have used many Wetherspoons pubs and I am used to them representing value for money.

What I did not know was how noisy it would be. I am used to Wetherspoons pubs having just TVs on with subtitles on the news channel. This one had very loud music and a DJ who went on way into the early hours. In addition, there was a function going in in the hotel itself, with very loud music coming out of a room right next to reception, to the point where I struggled to hear the receptionist. She explained this is normal for Friday and Saturday nights, but that rooms were cheap on a Sunday. Quite how that was relevant when I was only booked in for Saturday was a mystery, but perhaps she had added some other detail that I could not hear.

We did call into the pub about 9.30pm and my wife asked for a hot drink as she was very cold after walking around from the car, which had to be parked quite some distance away, but this was refused as machines had been turned off. When my son and I popped out to the train station (very close by) to collect his girlfriend, the bouncers wanted to charge her £2 to come in even though we had not even finished our first drinks we had ordered before nipping out yet. We did not want to pay just to come into a very noisy Wetherspoons pub, so we all left and went to our hotels, meaning we had very little time with them, which was the whole reason we had booked to come up the night before the sports event.

The corridors in the hotel are a maze and really quite smelly in places. Our room was very cold on arrival. I turned up the radiators, but after 20 minutes of waiting there was no heat coming through. It was on by the morning, so perhaps it is on a timer system. The shower was small, actually a bit cramped, but worked fine and the amount of towels supplied was quite good for a cheap hotel. The quantity of hot drink materials supplied in the room was also quite generous. The bed itself was firm, but comfortable enough, although I did not like getting into it while the sheets etc were so cold due to the lack of heating and the noise levels meant sleep was elusive for quite some time.

Nobody was on reception when we came down in the morning, so I could not give any feedback direct to staff. We did go into the adjacent pub for breakfast, about 7.15am which was fine, and, of course at cheap Wetherspoons prices, and nice to be able to find breakfast at all so early in the morning, as many hotels only offer a late breakfast on a Sunday.

In summary then, some features of this hotel represent good value, but be aware it is in a very central location and extremely noisy at weekends. If you can't handle this, book elsewhere.

Thank your for taking the time to post your review about your stay here at The Queen's Hotel, Following on from your review about your stay, firstly I would like to personally apologise for your disappointment regarding the door staff requesting payment to enter the premises next door, Hotel Guests are allowed free entry to the pub but obviously on this occasion there was a miscommunication, We aim to provide our customers with the best possible standards, occasionally we may fall short of the standards we look to achieve.
Unfortunately during your stay the radiators were on a timer system, this has now changed so guests have control of the radiators in there rooms.
We would like to assure you that your comments and observations have been taken seriously and the appropriate action taken in order to ensure we maintain our standards of service, The efforts of the Hotel / Pub team are continuing to provide the best possible experience for all our customers. Once again thank you for bringing the matter to our attention, and for giving us the opportunity to improve. If you would like to discuss this issue with me further then please don’t hesitate to leave your contact details or to contact me.

We came to Newport to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary,the room was large and clean,and a decent size shower,plus the shower room was nice and big.The beds were firm,but comfortable,and the amenities were right on the door step.Nights however was noisy,as you would expect sleeping over a pub,which died of around 11pm,Then there was the early morning beer deliveries.If we come back again i will ask for a room at the back it may be quieter,we had room 8 which was 2nd floor over entrance.

I’m very sorry that you was disturbed by our deliveries, we do aim to get them in as quickly and quietly as we can. Being a city centre pub / Hotel we are limited to what times we can have our deliveries once again I do apologise for this.

Popped in here a few times over the weekend (we were staying in the Travelodge across the road), apart from running out of at least 2 beers before the evening trade started, running out of Nachos and the mexican burger (suspecting lack of guacamole there) the food was as expected. The staff were nice enough but as normal the pub became very loud later at night and they really do need to keep an eye on how drunk people are getting (especially with a hotel immediately above and opposite).

This is a difficult place to review, The room was of a good standard for a budget hotel and included free tea and coffee making facilities along with free bottled water. The lady working on reception was very good, she explained everything that we needed to know about the hotel and the local area. However, the problem with the Hotel is that the Wetherspoons downstairs is actually a Lloyds no 1 Bar which is open and playing very loud music until 3am! To be fair on the hotel this is advised when booking so we knew it might be a problem but it really did mean we couldn't sleep. I would only recommend staying in this hotel if you plan to either spend your night in the bar or in one of the many other clubs in the town, as you will not be able to sleep until the music stops.

We had breakfast in the bar in the morning, which like all Wetherspoons serves a great value breakfast until 12. This was most welcome as there is not way we would have been up in time for breakfast at 10 after the lack of sleep. There was a mix up in the kitchen with our breakfast, however when we complained after 40 minutes that we were still waiting a manager came over and apologised. We were offered free drinks to make up for the error and overall were impressed by the way they handled this issue.

Room Tip: It might be worth calling the hotel in advance of your stay and requesting to be allocated one of the quieter rooms.
