This is our fourth stay at The Imperial in recent times and it remains my accommodation of choice for Plymouth - decent accommodation, a good price, parking, lovely breakfast and the owners have that rare balance in my experience of being friendly but professional enough to not be over bearing and give you your space - lovely people. Whilst the... More

Teh Imperial was a charming English hotel with an old-fashioned feel but very modern conveniences and services. The hotel is situated on a quiet side street but with the Barbicon and Hoe within easy walking distance. The breakfast was hearty and delicious. The staff very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to all.

1) Location is 5 stars. Walkable to almost all Plymouth attractions, restaurants and bars. 2) Room comfort is 4/5 stars. You can tell the place is a bit old, but beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and bathrooms were very nice. Don't be deterred, even with the less than stellar exterior appearance. Very comfortable and clean. 3) Service is 5... More

Comfortable, attractive, well equipped room. Friendly welcome. Great location with parking. Advance notice of a major event in the city and associated road closures was really helpful; attention to detail of that kind is really valuable and its reflective of a level of service that sets the Imperial apart from other hotels.

As I already said the hotel was very good and especially its members of staff were very nice and friendly. I definitely loved the fresh breakfast and enjoyed the fresh made pancakes. At first we had a problem with our first room, but after speaking to the members of staff we were able to easily solve these problems.

This was our third visit to the Imperial and always we impressed with the warm and friendly staff. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast delicious. We would never look any further when visiting Plymouth and have already booked our next visit in August. One comment we found the stairs a little challenging to reach room 18 must be our... More

This B&B was perfect for my trip, within short walking distance to many of the incredible sites to see in Plymouth and ferries. I also appreciated having a place for my rental car. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
