Information For Queens Hotel

Full of traditional English charm, The Queens Hotel is a stunning wedding venue on the South Coast complete with sea views. With a dedicated Events team on hand and a wide range of options and extras.

What is now The Queens Hotel was originally known as Southsea House built by the architect Augustus Livesay in 1861. Southsea House was a large private house owned by Sir John and Lady Morris and was later transformed into one of the first hotels in Southsea by William Kemp Junior. The Queens Hotel, under new ownership since early 2017, is being restored to its former glory. Guests are welcomed into a grand lobby by our charming staff as the magic of any visit or stay in The Queens unfolds. Rooms have been recently refurbished to offer luxury and comfort, many with spectacular sea views. Hotel facilities include a restaurant, hotel bars, a large private garden and a luxury Spa coming soon. The Hotel also offers the perfect setting for weddings, special occasions and business events. The Queens Hotel sits on the edge of Southsea Common just a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Southsea Common plays host to a variety of events such as the award winning Victorious Festival and Kite Festival. Within walking distance is the D-Day Museum and Historic Dockyard, home to the Royal Navy and attractions such as HMS Warrior, HMS Victory and The Mary Rose.

Top Wedding Tips

The key is in the preparation: we are here to help and guide you with this.

Remind yourself as to why you are getting married along the way: We like to remind our Brides and Grooms why they are getting married to each other, if they become stressed during the process.

Take as many photos of the preparation as you do of the Wedding Day – the cake tasting, trying on the Dress & Suits, picking the flowers. These are all memories that you won’t want to forget.

Perfect wedding day
We had our dream wedding reception and evening do here. Everything was timed/planned to perfection, the Elizabeth ballroom and hotel rooms were beautiful, and the food was excellent. Amanda and her team were all so attentive the whole day, and took our belongings and wedding presents up to our honeymoon suite during the evening which was so helpful in the chaos of being the bride and groom. Superb value for money compared to other venues we looked at (especially with the winter discount) and it seemed like we had the whole hotel to ourselves, with plentiful rooms for our guests to stay. Couldn't have asked for anything else from the hotel, the day was perfect.

We wish you all the very best, in these difficult times, and look forward to seeing you again in the near future for some cocktails.
