Stayed for 1 week; very comfortable, good breakfasts, friendly service. Great place to use as a base for exploring. Walking distance to the Hoe, Barbican and good restaurants, and 20 min walk to the station so car not necessary.

I would highly recommend the Imperial. Stayed for 8 nights on a regular work visit with around 10 colleagues. The people running the hotel and all their staff were helpful and friendly, taking an interest on how our stay was going. Breakfasts are very good (full English, kedgeree, kippers etc). Rooms are apparently quite varying in size, singles are compact,... More

Hard to imagine a better small hotel. Friendly, impeccably clean, warm and comfortable, with great breakfasts cooked to your individual requirements. If you are arriving late, call before you arrive because reception is not open 24 hours/day. The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from Plymouth Hoe, with the Smeaton Tower lighthouse and elaborate war memorials, sea front and... More

We booked very late on but everything went very well. The hostess was extremely friendly . The room was large contempary and clean . Plymouth had some lovely walks and the harbour area is a must for evenings. Overall 10/10.

Warmly greeted by a lovely reception staff who checked us and showed us to the double room . Room very clean and fresh . As it was on the second floor the the room was quite warm and the guide...

This was our first time at the Imperial having found our usual venue fully booked for the University run. There many features to like about this establishment - very friendly helpful staff to welcome you, clean spacious bedrooms and en-suites, free off street parking, a good variety at breakfast. They also offer a couple of useful deals on parking and... More

We did a cycling holiday in Devon, and our final stop was in Plymouth, staying one night at The Imperial. True to form, it was pouring down rain as we approached Plymouth, and we were soaked when we arrived at The Imperial. We were warmly greeted and shown to our room - the room was bigger than we needed but... More

I visited here with my boyfriend for my birthday. When we arrived and were greeted by a very friendly member of staff who took us to our room, showing us around the hotel on the way. Room was clean, and nicely decorated. Small shower room, but was also clean with a nice powerful shower. Toilet flush wasn't very powerful which... More

I booked this hotel on last minute.com and so had no idea what it was going to be like. What a lovely surprise when we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly receptionist ( who was the proprietor ) who booked us in and although we were early they allowed us to leave our bags so that we didn't have...
