My boyfriend booked this hotel for my 21st birthday as it was said to be a 4 star hotel so would be one of the nicer ones in Blackpool. We arrived early and decided to spend the time before we could check in at the spa facilities until our room was ready. The spa was vile. There was mould growing... More

6 ladies stayed in 3 twin rooms - unfortunately we got the worst room! There were long black hairs all over the bathroom floor, the carpet hadn't been cleaned for a while - hair pins all over! The radiator didn't work and the duvet cover had holes in it! Other than that it was OK! The evening dinner was OK... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at The Imperial with our grandchildren. Everything was as expected or better. Unlike in other hotels we looked at, they were able to accommodate our 15 yr old grandson in a family room. It was spacious and had a side sea view, and his bed was in an annex off the main room which... More

The hotel enjoys a great location not far from North Pier and there is a tram stop nearby. I am not a fan of big hotels as one tends to lose the personal touch but the Imperial restored my faith courtesy of the reception and bar staff. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who was most welcoming, attentive... More

We have stayed at the Imperial before but the new owners appear to be milking its reputation. The staff were friendly and helpful but couldn’t do anything to improve the disappointing state this previously lovely hotel has descended into. We were given our “Superior Double Room” which we were shocked to find had water damage stains down the wall, with... More

The room clean, pleasant and very comfortable. The staff friendly and very polite. The food was delicious, breakfast was an experience for anyone who is a fussy eater, everything I could ask for, from prunes, traditional English, muesli, yoghurt, pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, porridge. Dinner was even better, the choice was varied and the staff were so helpful and friendly,... More

Lovely hotel, staff brilliant and very welcoming. Food lovely. Rooms nice and clean. down side no hair dryer, and wasn't told had to pay for car parking with wasn't a lot but just a shame it was only mentioned when checking out, but only bad points. Great location right on sea front and 5 min walk to the north pier.
