The rooms were perfect, very clean, a good sized single bed, next door to each other and the balcony captured the afternoon sun. Staff are all very friendly and helpful and are... More

Stayed at the Imperial for 1 night to attend a weeding reception in Torquay on 12th April, with family, taking 2 rooms. On arrival at the hotel there was nowhere to park as I was told there were many day visitors using the car park. The hotel staff however did allow us to use the garage parking which is normally...

This was the second time I have stayed at this hotel and returned with extended family for a birthday celebration. The interior of this hotel is fantastic and takes you back to another time. The views are stunning and must be hard to beat by any other hotel in the area. The bedrooms are spacious again with stunning sea views.... More

Fantastic place to stay. Very attentive (but not overbearing) staff who were very helpful, both in the hotel & the health club. Both my husband & I have walking difficulties & were given a very accessible room with lovely views over the bay. Food was excellent - we went on a Secret Escapes deal - so we sampled breakfast, afternoon... More

We stayed for 1 night and had 5 rooms between us all, despite all paying the same, the room type was drastically different. Luckily I was in a corner room in the second floor, lots of space and a gorgeous sea view (definitely worth requesting when you book). We ate at the restaurant which has a fantastic view over the...
