We have stayed here several times and this is the first review I have written on Tripadvisor. Some of the petty griping about what is wrong with this hotel, bar and restaurant(s), misses the point, like the small lift. Great Yarmouth is sadly a British resort town attracting visitors who value cheap and large. The Imperial is an oasis. The... More

I have stayed here for a few nights and find the staff pleasant and helpful, the surroundings are good and the food is excellent although a bit pricey. This hotel lacks a couple of elements which make it very run of the mill. Firstly the beers are very unkept and none of the staff are interested in trying to pull... More

My room had a modern shower room that was clean and well appointed. Each rooms also had an air-con built into the ceiling that was very effective at regulating... More

Treated my mum to breakfast on the terrace for Mother's Day and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service was fantastic nothing to much trouble. Would highly recommend breakfast on the terrace as it is a perfect setting with lovely sea views.

Stayed here on Saturday for one night. Ordered flowers in the room as a surprise for my wife but sadly they'd forgotten - they were very apologetic about it at checkout though. Hotel very clean, all the staff were very helpful and the food in Cafe Cru was absolutely perfect, and very reasonably priced I thought. I would recommend the... More

The Hotel is one of the aging traditional independents in this seaside town, overlooking the Beach. The rooms are relatively small. but comfortable with large en suite bathrooms. However, the noise is sometimes due to relatively thin internal walls. Check-in is quick and easy and the staff are pleasant and helpful. The big plus is the quality of the food... More
