This is not a hotel - it is a dancing club with some rooms located above.
Loud music continues until 2:00 AM, at least on the weekends.
After that you can listen to drunk people yelling in the streets until about 5:00 AM. Not to mention the traffic. Room 16 was very hot and could not be cooled down by opening the window since this could only be opened by about 10cm due to safety concerns of the owner. The light over the sink was so dim it was pretty useless. The bed (when used by 2) was very narrow and short.
Not a 5* Hotel - nor does it claim to be.
However, it was absolutely fine, even good when you consider the price.
The breakfasts are worth every penny, and more besides. Right near the centre of town, it's going to be my first choice for future visits.
1 night stay
The room was very basic and rather dated, but acceptable standard for the money paid.
Unfortunately, I stayed on a Friday night and could hear every bit of noise from Friday night revelers on the street. I had to leave the tv on to drown out some of the sound. I was already aware that the hotel is a club at weekends but I had rang ahead of my stay to ask if the room I was given would be noisy, and was told that the location of my room would mean I shouldn't be kept awake. As I had only traveled to Newport the night before my training course to get some decent sleep, I am somewhat diappointed. I also did not find the bed particularly comfortable. The staff were really friendly, which made up for the negatives. My advice, don't stay there on a weekend unless you are there to party yourself!.
1 night's stay
No parking at hotel, but on-street parking is available nearby and is free between 6pm & 8am which suited me.
Tried to check-in at bar, but was re-directed to a door around the corner which is the hotel entrance. Barrier was down on the check-in desk when I arrived (about 6pm), but pressed button on phone and was attended to quickly. Check-in lady was very polite and helpful. Room small, but very nice. Clean linen and towels, comfy bed, good shower, Freeview TV, free Wi-Fi, tea & coffee making facilities, complimentary still & sparkling bottles of water, iron and board. Ate in the Weatherspoon's bar/restaurant which is always good food and value for money. Decent room rate for a city centre hotel.
Springboard to Newport
Conveniently situated 2 minutes walk from the Rail Station with connections to London, the Midlands and Southern counties, the Queen's Hotel combines traditional high standards of yesteryear with modern technology and service.
Excellent meals are served in the Bar which functions on two floors providing plenty of space for relaxation. Free wi-fi is available throughout the hotel. The staff are well motivated and cheerfully provide for guests' needs. An unhurried yet purposeful atmosphere pervades the hotel. I enjoyed my stay. [The accommodation is suitable for a business stop-over. - not available in the options below.]
Would stay there again.
Clean room and good hotel would go back again.
Overall we liked our one night stay.
Our only problem was that the hotel has a night club and another one just across the road.We could not get to sleep until the early hours after midnight.
Breakfast was very good and the room decor was very nice. Good value too.
Judgement day weekend
The room we were given was on the second floor No 211 right above the entrance to the bar.
The music went on until 2 am in the morning on both the Saturday & Sunday night. The room was very hot but we could not open the window because of the noise below. Two nights with little sleep.
This is the second time I have stayed in Queen's Hotel and the standard was as good as it was before.
The room was clean as were the bed and bathroom linen. TV worked and refreshment tray was well stocked. Hotel is easily accessible from rail and bus stations.
The Queens Hotel, Newport- a JD Wetherspoon Hotel
Central location, comfy bed and good shower.
