Description


SOUTHPORT

SD3317NE PROMENADE
664-1/9/151 (East side)
29/02/96 No.54
Queens Hotel

II

Includes: Queens Hotel BANK SQUARE.
Hotel. 1866, enlarged to rear. Rock-faced sandstone with
ashlar dressings, hipped slate roof (concealed by parapet).
Renaissance style. Large irregular U-plan on corner site,
formed by main range parallel to Promenade with extensive
wings added to rear.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys (probably with concealed attic); 4-window
range. Plinth, quoins, sill bands to the upper floors, deep
2-course frieze with zigzag enrichment, modillioned cornice
and balustraded parapet with urns (all carried round to Bank
Square).
The ground floor has a round-headed doorway to the third bay
(up 3 steps) protected by a painted porch with Corinthian
columns and mutuled pediment, and to the left of this a
segmental bay window with pilasters, frieze, modillioned
cornice with blocking course, and square-headed 1/1 sashes.
All the other windows to the front are round-headed but are
otherwise in similar style: the outer bays have 2-storey
canted bay windows, with modillioned cornices over both floors
and balustraded parapets over the upper. The 2 windows between
them at first floor have pedimented architraves, and the 4 at
second floor have simpler round-headed architraves. Corniced
chimney visible in centre of range.
The original 3-window left return (to Bank Square) has a
doorway in the centre with a pedimented architrave, a 2-storey
canted bay to the left of this like those at the front but
with square-headed sashes, a sash to the right with a
segmental-pedimented architrave, 2 square-headed sashes at
first floor with corniced architraves, and round-headed sashes
at second floor. An added 8-window wing continues to the rear.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
A relatively unaltered example of a mid-Victorian seaside
hotel.
