Although I am far from a fan of Blackpool we had occassion to stay overnight as we were seeing a show at the Wintergardens. We have stayed previously in the town and were not Impressed. We decided on the Imperial due to its impressive history and we are so glad. The room was really quiet and comfortable and after the... More

I like The Imperial...it's my favourite Blackpool hotel....so it hurts sometimes to write reports like the one I have to now. A hotel is only as good as the people it employs....and sadly The Imperial just doesn't have enough staff and in this day and age, that really is a disgrace. There are many talented people looking for work.....to see... More

Stayed at this hotel last night with family, rooms were dusty, kettle was filthy so I used the kettle from another family members room. All I could hear was drunks, inside and outside the hotel! Sat down for breakfast, scrambled eggs were soggy and tasteless and to top matters off a member of staff clearly walked off and said to... More

It has a wonderful old world feel but has everything you require. The food was great, we had a nice room with really comfortable beds and... More

The rooms we were given were large and very warm and comfortable. There were plenty of towels, and the bathroom had good lighting which is not always the case in modern hotels. The breakfast was tasty with... More

Very traditional 4 star hotel. Building work when we stayed so did not get full advantage of the beautiful sea views from the hotel. We stayed on the fourth floor (attic family room). Room very spacious and lots of storage space. Due to the hotel being quite old, you did hear noise from the corridor (people going in and out... More
