In addition to the main restaurant and bar, the hotel will be home to Café Pacific, an all-day social hub offering coffees, drinks and snacks providing the perfect destination for dining, drinking, working or relaxing.

Richard Moore, group chief executive of The QHotels Group, said: “Throughout the refurbishment we have retained historical details that make the hotel so special but have introduced elements such as the social hub that accommodate and celebrate the new way people use hotel spaces.”

Chairman of Living Ventures - who are partners in the refurbishment process - Jeremy Roberts, said: “We are delighted to bring this beautiful space back to life, echoing the glorious history of The Queens Hotel. Its heritage as a place to relax, eat, drink and just enjoy some of the pleasures of life simply oozes from the walls. It is our privilege and pleasure to let it continue to be what it was always meant to be.”
