Family Christmas 'get-together' at the Imperial --- no problem catering for a large party. Warm welcome on arrival from friendly and attentive staff. Good menu and wine list. Service was not rushed, comfortable surroundings and great value for money. Will definitely visit again -- Perfect.

I love this hotel. We stay there every year before Christmas. Location is excellent. Staff are very friendly. Usually we get an upgrade. I was disappointed with the size of our twin room this time but we had a great sleep. No noise. Breakfast was fab. Loving the

Visited the bar for a quiet drink with friends. Bar has been refurbished since my last visit, offering comfort in pleasant surroundings. Venue is nicely located offering a cosy haven on the edge of the busy city centre. Worth a visit.

The rooms were very small and not air-conditioned (even during a July "heat wave" in the upper 70s. The provided fans provided little relief. The bathroom was nice. We ate breakfast in their dining room and the food was adequate.

Huge problem with internet connection. Terrible actually. Basically no internet. Small rooms, bathrooms not comfortable. Tiny lift, looks like for two people. The only good thing is location and comfy bed.
