Exterior of the Queens Hotel Southsea


The hotel at the heart of Southsea.

The Queens Hotel sits on the edge of Southsea Common just a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Within walking distance is The D-Day Story and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home to the Royal Navy and attractions such as HMS Warrior, HMS Victory and The Mary Rose.

At the Queens Hotel you will find newly refurbished rooms, many with spectacular panoramic views over The Solent. The rooms are striking, full of personality and with an air of elegance. Comfort is the number one priority, with big comfy beds and gorgeous bathrooms - all helping to make your stay truly memorable.

The current owners took over in April 2017 and commenced a painstaking, multi-million pound restoration and redevelopment of the hotel, to return it to its former glory. Original features have been uncovered and the lobby, bars and restaurants offer the perfect meeting space for gatherings large and small.

Delicious new seasonal menus in the signature restaurant, 1865, and Dukes bar (a cocktail bar serving drinks with plenty of panache), have recently been introduced. A hand-picked team of hospitality specialists will ensure the warmest of welcomes at the Queens Hotel, Southsea.
