Stayed 3 nights in this hotel and wished I'd chosen elsewhere. Terrible smell in hotel corridors and entrances. Room was well dated and bathroom a joke. The only upside was the reasonable breakfast. Avoid and find something better.

We spent 7 days in May. Have stayed at both The Hilton and Imperial before, and this is much more convenient and way less expensive. We took a "luxury suite" which was a bit of a stretch. The sitting room was a bay window with two chairs in it, but we appreciated the extra space since we were there for... More

Hotel was fine, room a little dated but ok , breakfast excellent and staff very pleasant. Great for the money. Really central for shops and tower. Only a short walk to the beach. All sorts of restaurants within easy reach. Also great clubs around for older people who enjoy a wee night out.

We visited this weekend with a large group of people so it was nice to find somewhere that accepted all of us. Overall it was better than I expected and you have to remember that you get what you pay for! The staff are pretty laid back, not really any sign of a uniform... The location is great with a...
