Historical Traveler Reviews Queens Hotel Brighton
Needs refurbishment. Can't reserve no smoking rooms in advance. Ask for a room overlooking the atrium to avoid the noise if you're on business, and don't have time to look at the sea views. Runs out of bitter by mid-week on a regular basis!
OK during the week
From the raves on this website I had high expectations. But largely they were not met. The location is very good, near the pier and the Lanes. But the hotel in not in good condition overall. From the outside it looks very run-down with drab, peeling paint. Inside it's better and the rooms appear to have been recently redone. But the quality of the furniture and bathroom fixtures are second-rate. I had the misfortune of being in Bristol during the recent heat wave the the lack of airconditioning, combined with the noisy streets outside, made for poor nights sleep. Overall, it's an OK choice during the week but I would never pay the high weekend rates for this place! At those rates I'm sure you could find a first-rate hotel nearby.
Great place to stay
Do not be put off by the shabby exterior, the hotel is excellent. Ask for a sea view. The rooms are lovely. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Fabulous breakfasts. The pool is small, but is OK. What I liked was the room was on a room rate, not a per person rate, which worked out good value for a family. I'd certainly go back.
What a wonderful location - overlooking the beach and in the lanes. All the main bars and clubs are within about ten minutes away. The room itself was nice, we upgraded on arrival to a sea-view - huge!! Nice duvets, quite unusual.The bar area was lovely, very stylish and breakfast was perfect.The leisure centre was a nice surprise.We will definately be back.Cheers Queens
Very nice, excellent location!
The Hotel is very nice and welcoming. Upon arrival we were seen to very quickly and given our keys to our room. This was medium sized and nicely decorated. The bed could have been a bit bigger, however, my companion said she was impressed with the size of the bathroom! The breakfast was great! Lots to choose from, try to get a seat near the windows with a view of the sea - a great way to start the day! We didn't have a chance to use the gym and swimming facilities but we would definately do so if we were to use this hotel again. A very recommended stay!
Treated like royalty
i stayed at the Queens Hotel in Brighton and was amazed at the level of customer service offered from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. Service was friendly and relaxed and is more focused and welcoming than that at the Grand where i stayed last time.I will definately be staying at the Queens again!
The sevice in the Hotel was excellent, very professional and friendly. Great food, great location and views. Highly recommended!
Very very happy
Spent a night there - ordered via LastMinute - Ģ140 for a double room.The welcome was good and informative. The interior of the hotel very nice. Were told we could even use the pool the following day, even though we had checked out.My girlfriend loved the room. It was clean, bath and shower were good, and even had a view of the Pier. Heating in room worked instantly.Asked how to order taxi, and I was pointed to a Taxi phone. Picked it up, gave room number, 5 minutes later a Taxi arrives, and it's phoned through to my room. Great.Ordered drinks from bar - barman was a littly discourteous, but the drinks arrived very quickly and he was much more courteous when I put Ģ1 in his hand.Following morning breakfast was ASTOUNDING. Breakfast room was full so we waited outside. Tea and coffee were provided while we waited. Very quickly we were called in.It was a Buffet style breakfast and I ate til I exploded. English Breakfast bacon, egg, scrambled egg, sausages, mushrooms, orange/apple/pineapple juice, croissants, pain au chocolate, huge range of fruit, cereals, marmalade, butter..... kept going back for more and pigged out.Checking out was really friendly, and easy.In essence, based on the reviews here I took a risk and booked a hotel hoping my girlfriend would like it. The result - AMAZING. Would recommend to anyone.
Great View and Location, Shame about the service
Great location and really a great view (this was a 'superior sea view room').
Comfortable bed, great hot water, adequate but not huge bathroom, merely average toiletries.
Those who like English Full Monty Breakfast will like the breakfast. Those who don't won't. Really *lots* of nice places to eat nearby. (Terre a Terre overrated and gone downhill; Moshi Moshi looked fun; Al Duomo as good as it ever was.)
But talk about English service!
Us: Could you order us a taxi please?
Reception: Do you have a taxi number?
Us: Our radiator doesn't work and it is cold. Can we fix this?
Reception: We don't turn our heating on here for another couple of weeks.
Us: Unfortunately we are only staying one more night. It's cold.
Reception: That's how we do it here.
Fresh sheets on second night would be expected, no?
The swimming pool was nice.
If you are paying the mid-week bargain GBP 30, it's probably okay.
If you're paying the weekend luxury rate, try somewhere else first.
Very good fares on weekdays, opposite on weekends
i was astounded by the comparedly cheap price (60 GBP) for a double room. the rooms were fantastic and everything did work out fine except the continental breakfast being delivered to the rooms, because the hotel staff forgot about the half of the orders... the rooms are great, large and have a beatyfull bigsized bath included... the quality compared to the price was great due to comanring it to another hotel i stayed in...
actually the price rose up to 150 GBP on saturdays for the same room which is just more than a rip off...

A beautiful sunny autumn day in England deserves a beach side day trip!
A group of 6 expat Aussies; Abby, Amanda, Brad, Josh, Kate and I made our way on the coach to the sea for the day. Meandering the lane ways and markets, sitting on the pebble beaches and for the crazy others, jumping in the 10degree ocean for a swim!
The day wouldn't be complete without a trip to the funfair on the pier and an off licence session in the park! What a perfect Sunday!

I miss all of you back home, especially now when I feel a bit sad. I do feel better now though when I've got all these thoughts out from my head and I know that you can read them.

... tube over there around 9:15, but we got to the station at 9:30. As Laura and I were walking to swipe our passes, Nicola stopped and said she didn't have a pass. Every station and attendant had a line. We had a 25 minute trip to Victoria Station and then from there we had to find our train. So Laura left to take the tube, and I stayed back to help Nicola get a ticket. She cut in front of a family, but her credit card wasn't being accepted, so we got ...
