My stay at hotel imperial was very pleasant. For less than 30 pounds I had a room for the night, and a half board (dinner and breakfast) AND the hotel is almost right on the beachfront (only one building back from the sea). Brilliant location only a short walk to all of the towns attractions. The room was very clean,... More

Travelled on 5 day holiday with Robinson's Coaches. From being picked up, less than one mile from home, to returning home everything was better than expected. Our driver for the week, Gordon, was excellent and kept us informed throughout the journey. The trip included 2 day excursions, Worthing/Brighton and Tenterden/Rye. His knowledge of the history of the areas travelled through... More

My wife and I had a lovely two night stay at the Imperial. This traditional seaside hotel was full of character and is staffed by a wonderful team who could not do enough for you and we always smiling despite the awful weather. Particular praise for Miraslava. Will definitely visit again soon, hopefully the weather will be a little kinder.

I had booked an online discounted package with an upgrade. I am not sure what difference the upgrade made apart from being provided with a bowl of fruit which was nice. I was very impressed with the service in the dining room. You only had to wait a minute or so and a waitress or waiter came up to ask... More

Staff friendly, hotel clean. No showers in most rooms. Food was well cooked but the menu was rubbish. Breakfast was at 8.15 and if you were late the staff got very upset. Entertainment was bingo bingo and bingo, every night bingo. Overall the stay was a disaster and will not go there again ever. This was certainly the worst tinsel... More

Visited with coach of people from our local club. The staff are all friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean and comfortable but could do with a few updates.
