We have visited three times now and each has been a near perfect experience. Well situated a few minutes walk from the town centre with wonderful views from the large seaward facing rooms. Everything always spotlessly clean. Pool also well looked after. Breakfast is great too with a good selection of everything you would expect both hot and cold. The... More

We had a lovely family holiday, 5 nights, and all of the staff were so nice and friendly, very helpful and obliging. Our room was lovely, very big with plenty of room for 3 of us, and had lovely glass sliding doors onto a balcony to make the most of the amazing view over the bay. The bathroom could do... More

After reading some recent negative reviews, we were a little apprehensive about staying here. We paid £120 for one night including breakfast. As it was our 20th wedding anniversary, we wanted somewhere nice to stay. Just got back, I can say it was fine. Yes a bit shabby in places, but this is an old hotel. Very big and grand... More

We stayed in one of the deluxe double rooms in mid-May and we couldn't have been any happier with our choice of hotel. Our room was extremely spacious, clean and well appointed and felt more like a small apartment than a hotel room. We had our own balcony and the sea view was spectacular. Checking in and out was extremely... More

We had a four night stay at the imperial hotel Torquay. A little disappointed as we were told when booking we would have the same room as we stayed in last July. The room we we're given was on the very top floor and was very tired looking. We complained at reception and we we're told the best they could... More

My daughter and I spent a relaxing long weekend at The Imperial. The hotel is a historic building and displays some of its artefacts for guests to view. Our room was very large, but warm, with a fabulous view. There was plenty of hot water and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed some lovely spa treatments in the hotel's... More

Room was small and needed some updating. Very hot no air conditioning and unable to open the window very far. Outdoor pool was not cleaned out so not able to use it. No bottle of water in the room which would have expected from the price charged. Breakfast is all self service so not very relaxing. All in all a... More

My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary in April and have to say we were very happy with everything. We choose this hotel because of a buy a gift voucher and felt like we got great value with this would definitely recommend upgrading to a room with balcony and sea view. The breakfast was all you could... More

Booked a 2 night break through Secret Escapes. Paid £180 for 2 nights, breakfast, 1 dinner including wine and afternoon tea on the last day. Arrived and parked in the car park £7 per night. Checked in and offered upgrade to a suite. The room was super. A bit tired around the edges but clean and spectacular views from the... More
