I stayed at The Three Queens Hotel on Thursday 21st August 2014. Check in was very friendly and relatively simple. I had booked an executive room and when I arrived I was pleased enough with both the size of the room and the bathroom.
The room was a curious fuse of old and modern - wooden furniture complete with a wooden wardrobe and key, fused with a bathroom with automatic lights, a large flat screen television and air-conditioning.
The bed looked massive - it had 3 full sized pillows spanning the width of the bed, end to end. However, it became apparent that this was 2 double beds pushed together which actually proved to be slightly uncomfortable. The television is hard work to use, taking forever to come on and for channels to change. The air conditioning unit provided by heat or cold air depending on your needs, though could be slightly noisy going on and off, particularly during the night.
The automatic lights in the bathroom proved rather frustrating. Don't move for too long and you're left in darkness meaning you have to leap around the room to get them to go back on again. Worse still, when trying to activate the lights in the morning I was unable to catch the sensors attention at all. The quandary was to either open the curtains to allow the businesses and flats opposite to see in or to leave the curtains closed and shower in darkness. There is a net curtain but I still think I gave the neighbours a bit of a show! Finally on the bathroom, the shower was powerful and hot but the window was screwed shut and therefore there was nowhere for the steam to go!
Perhaps one last criticism of the room would be that the tea and coffee facilities weren't as stocked as I have found in similar hotels, nor were there any biscuits. Whilst this is a small thing, at £85 for the night it would have been appreciated.
Breakfast is cooked to order and is fabulous. Staff in the dining room are friendly and very helpful.
Reading back, this perhaps highlights some of the negative aspects of my stay. In truth, despite the fact I didn't sleep hugely well I would not hesitate to book again. It's a very nice hotel with very nice staff and clientele. There is ample parking too.
