We stayed over the Easter weekend for 5 nights dinner bed breaksfast, we have been before too, the food is really good and the views from the resturant and sea view rooms is great, especially if the sun is out. Waking up to that view through large sliding doors is great its almost like being abroad. My video shows the... More

Shame, lovely location, but customer service and the finer details need to be improved. Been staying here for years and it's now gone down hill. On a bonus side, amazing views from the room and a lovely afternoon tea (when we eventually got it)

Booked this with travel zoo for a spa day with my daughter and added an overnight stay. Checking in was fine and the room was adequate, very measly on the two biscuits, not enough tea, and the toiletries consisted of one of everything, barely enough for us both. We ate in the bar during the evening and our waiter Ryan... More

The Imperial Hotel is a lovely grand old lady with beautiful fixtures and fittings and the most wonderful sea views. Our room was a large one, extremely comfortable and it great to be able to use the sun loungers (with cushions) on our balcony at this time of the year! The staff bar one were very friendly and the staff... More

Having stayed at the Imperial some years ago for functions, we were delighted when a Travelzoo offer tempted us again to relive happy memories. The hotel has a slightly faded charm, generally well maintained for such a large place. Food was good although our pork a bit over cooked. The location is great, easy walk to town & marina and...

Stayed at the Imperial overnight for a business trip. Excellent location with stunning views from the hotel. Good quality rooms with plenty of space and in good condition. Good food at dinner with prompt and efficient service and an excellent buffet breakfast in the morning. Free parking as part of the corporate rate.
