There is a banner up outside the hotel advertising this new restaurant (which may be new or refurbished, I don't know). Has anyone been? (Not expecting much from the place really, but the views might be good and I always try to take an interest in anything new in the area).

I'm intrigued by this too Summit Lover. Wonder if they saw our thread about the Christmas social, wishing the top floor restaurant was open to the public? (Pardon my delusions of grandeur.) Maybe have the next meet-up there? Would be a great view at sunset.

We had our wedding reception there. Lovely views but some of our guests who stayed the night won't be going back in a hurry...

I imagine the views are lovely, but more to the point what was the food and service like? I do hope it was good for your wedding reception!

We used Mimosa from Herne Hill to cater and they were lovely.

Our guests who stayed overnight weren't very complimentary about their experiences.

I can't comment from firsthand experience on the quality of food and/or service.

I thought they may have updated their various websites to show off the roof terrace - obviously not - how depressing is this! the queens hotel (euro)

friends of mine stayed last week as they were between homes, they said it was fine for the price ( 35 for a room for three with breakfast)... the room was very clean, breakfast was kinda cheap but as expected for the price, apparently the rooms on the two top floors have been renovated and are nice and the work in being completed downwards... they no longer have DSS families and are geared towards coach trips to london.. sounds like an improvement is on hand, slowly but surely

from the website Twinkle found:

Well there's a thought.

Bars and ballroom

I was away when there was an event in the ballroom during the CP festival.

Must pluck up the courage to check out the hotel, where kings, kaisers and who was who once stayed.

I'd join you PersonalBest - always been curious about those views. Not sure what kind of welcome we'd get though. As the biggest building, and surely one of the biggest employers in Crystal Palace, they keep a very low profile. I rang them once to find out about the restaurant (a couple of months before it reopened to the public) and they were not at all forthcoming about it or the bar. Maybe they're just shy!

Anyone else fancy a visit? Suggest bar first for Dutch courage :blink:

Slightly off topic but kind of related to previous threads I have noticed alot more touristy types marching along church road and elsewhere in the locale recently - so the prev comment about no longer housing DSS tenants seems to be the case. Whilst I had no issue with The Queens hotel housing asylum seekers and the like - it must be economically good for the area to have people witha few quid in their pocket (even tho I suspect the Queens hotel probably appeals to tourists more at the "value" end of the market.)

I went to the roof top restaurant about 28 years ago for a mates birthday - it was a "fishcoteque" witha bit of dancing alongside fish and chips - think its up there withone of my most cringeworthy nights out

Maybe an interesting choice for the next VN social? I might even be persuaded to come along ... :unsure:

Include me in. Strength in numbers and all that.

I wonder if there's an Emil Zola society that lays a wreath every year.

A possible annual ritual?



Boy voyage

Apparently the Zolas left Upper Norwood for Paris in June 1899.

(And it's Emile with an 'e'.)
