This big, old building is starting to look a bit run down but you can forgive it because they have put effort into the areas that count, in my opinion. Perfect location, good TV's, reasonable beds, good bathrooms, good food and lovely gardens. The grounds are beautiful. Get a "Garden Room" if you can, because they have big balconies (the... More

I enjoyed my stay at The Imperial Hotel at Torquay. What a magnificent position and view and quiet. A grand old hotel. I was impressed with the hotel and it is kept very well. I had a premier room with sea view and balcony - very nice spacious room, all modernised but with the old world feel, great view and... More

Only had one night stay as we were on our way to Cornwall for a holiday wish we could have stayed longer. We were upgraded to a premier room which over looked the sea. The room was on the ground floor with a veranda with sun loungers on it. The room was good and very comfortable. My only criticism was... More

We very recently had our holiday at the Imperial Hotel in Torquay. Having stayed at the Imperial before we anticipated a good stay, we were not disappointed. Check in was was swift and painless and we were greeted in a pleasant manner. Our room was spacious, well equipped and had an excellent view of the sea. The bathroom was perfectly... More

We stayed in a premium room which over looked the bay with a veranda. At check in we were told that the room was not ready but only waited 10mins before we were told the was now ready. The room was nice because of the view, there was some sort of furry mould on the wall around the electric socket... More

This hotel has changed ownership a few times in recent years and it shows. Without doubt the hotel has a wonderful location with great views across Torbay. We booked in on a special deal with Secret Escapes - very good value. I requested a quiet room away from lifts and bars. Our room - a premium room apparently - was... More

This hotel was a great stay for me and my family! Our room was very very spacious and had the most amazing view overlooking the water. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel and all the food was great as well as the service. The hotel is a short walk to down by the harbor! This hotel is an... More

This Hotel is in desperate need of a make over, stayed in premium room for the weekend and it cost upwards of £350, worth about half that. Did have a nice view over the bay, we had good weather and was able to take advantage of the outdoor area which was very nice as was the bar area. The food... More

Having booked this four star hotel for a weekend break for my partner's birthday I was very disappointed. The check in staff were not very cheerful or friendly. The room itself was fine with a wonderful view over the bay although a bit in need of some tlc. At breakfast the next morning we were shown to a table -... More
