EV charge socket for electric cars, fantastic views of 60MW wind farm at sea, birds eye view of Scooby Sands with its Seals, very clean, lovely staff (well presented and offered free binoculars to see the seals :-), meals are to die for (big portions and very well presented)... 5 star service... Can't recommend enough...

On booking the hotel I asked for a quiet room, the hotel rang and advised a wedding was in and they would place us to the rear of the hotel to avoid the disco. Didn't hear a thing! The reception was friendly and welcoming, the room impeccably clean. The breakfast was fabulous. A super friendly hotel ,all the staff were... More

INTRODUCTION My wife and I have a lot of holidays during the year, which usually consist of short breaks such as this. As a consequence these views will be harsher than those of the casual visitor. BOOKING We booked by telephone and the process was easy. The receptionist was polite but not as informative as she could have been. We... More

Went here for mid-afternoon cream tie for my partners birthday with friends on/in the terrace and it was utterly delightful and excellent value for money. The staff were extremely helpful and plied us with as much tea and coffee as we could drink. The quality of the cream tea was second to none and so much better value than The... More

For our 40th wedding anniversary on the 22nd of March we decided to celebrate it at this prodigious hotel. From the booking to when we left the overall experience was one of friendliness, professionalism, concern and dedication to ensure that our short anniversary break was memorable. I suffer with a back problem so carrying suitcases can be a problem, on... More

Having been and stayed in various accommodation in Great Yarmouth this by far is the best . From our initial arrival ,the staff were friendly, informative and very helpful. The Terrace restaurant was bathed in sunshine and was a perfect setting to enjoy the various excellent offerings, some locally sourced ,certainly in my opinion not over priced but relative to...

The Imperial is a lovely hotel situated on the sea front. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms overlooking the beach. The room was clean and had been refurbished to a good standard. The bed was firm and we enjoyed a good nights sleep on both nights of our stay. Staff were polite and friendly. We ate dinner... More

Stayed one night at the Imperial and was really impressed. My daughter and I both had one of the sea facing superior rooms. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. We were able to go to our room early which was a bonus. All the little extras made this hotel the 4*'s it is. Fresh milk in the fridge,... More

We think we are a little gem and when someone writes a review and tell us that make the team feel special. I note your comments about a fully served breakfast including the starters. Our thinking behind it that we want our guests to relax and enjoy their breakfast without having to continually get up and down to serve themselves,... More

We had lunch in the Terrace, facing the sea. Good service. Reasonably good food - Overpriced! A very drafty & chilly experience. There are better places to eat in the locality. We would't be returning!

Thank you for your comments which I appreciate. Regarding the Terrace being Breezy it is an outdoor eating space with protection from the wind and rain and very occasionally we have a breeze on the east coast which can effect the temperature. We also have a bar and restaurant which are indoors where guests can dine which enjoy climate control... More

Attended school old boys dinner here. My wife ate in the cafe cru restaurant. Staff oustandingly helpful. Hotel oozes character. Superb location overlooking dunes and sea. For breakfast try a Yarmouth speciality (bloater) which is a lightly smoked herring. It has to be ordered 24 hours in advance and a pair are probably best shared. One negative is the lift.... More
