If you are coming to Blackpool then this really is the place for you. Now, I am really fussy about hotels, I stay in them a lot and therefore find myself naturally spotting dust in a room, carpet that is worn and generally rooms in desperate need of regeneration. I am used to staying in fairly modern hotels and admit... More

Third stay at this hotel & will not be the last. So elegant yet very friendly. Service at breakfast was excellent with an amazing choice. If you cannot find anything to your liking here you must be very choosy.

Having bought a wowcher spa deal for two we arrived at the imperial hotel on a blustery Friday morning. We were greater by very friendly staff and I changed my clothes ready for my massage. This was an excellent treatment and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband also chose a back massage from quite a number of treatments. The pool... More

Dear 228 DawnM, I'm thrilled that you had such a great time here last week. There's nothing better than treating yourself when it's stormy outside and I'm so pleased you both left relaxed and pampered! Hope to see you again soon! Alison More

I stayed here on Business for only one night .Although it was close season there were still a lot of people in and around Blackpool. Unfortunately the sun did not shine but i was there on business. The Hotel is situated directly on the promenade so the first thing you encounter at the front door is a splendid view of... More

Dear Rollo2522, I was so pleased to read your comments about your recent stay with us and relieved to hear that we found your lost property immediately. The hotel's location is simply perfect and I have to agree, although it's fun watching the waves crashing on the shore, there's nothing like a summer sunset over the Irish Sea to make... More

Nice beach hotel when the sun shines unfortunate for us but we did enjoy our stay. Blackpool brings so many memories has we havent been up north for years. Good staff, especialy at breakfast time, but David, i think, on the bar deserves a special thank you as he looked after us all night. Afternoon tea something to be desired... More

states at the imperial last night. pleasantly surprised to find that the dismal palm court dining room has been revitalised. it's now a pleasant airy space that feels like it belongs in a decent hotel rather than a haunted house! there's also obvious upgrades throughout- reception has been updated as well.

Dear Rgcater, I'm so glad you love what we're doing to the hotel! Although we're still doing some snagging, you're right, she's is looking great isn't she? We've now done the Palm Court Restaurant, the No 10 Bar, a lounge upgrade and some work to our Health Club Reception and entrances. We've just completed 3 sample rooms which are about... More

I have just arrived home after a weekend's stay at The Imperial Hotel. This wasn't my first visit, as I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times in the past, my last visit was in 2007. I was worried that maybe the quality of the accommodation might have deteriorated over the years, especially with the price of the... More

Really lovely hotel, warm, welcoming and extremely good value for money. Complimentary tea and coffee on check in....it was a filthy, cold & windy day and just added to the warm welcome.

Booked for afternoon tea as it was deemed the best via online reviews. I can only think the reviews seen have been manipulated by staff or management.
