Our daughter surprised us, by saying she and her partner wanted a 'surprise' wedding to coincide with a 'naming ceremony' for their son. Nick and his team at The Imperial absolutely pulled out all the stops, the wedding remained a surprise until the moment it happened, the help and advice we took from Nick was spot on, the naming ceremony...

We attended a formal dinner in the evening and stayed the night. Good room with excellent breakfast choice - served, not a buffet, but you could have as much of anything as you wanted. Staff efficient and friendly. Away from the hussle and bussle of Gt Yarmouth just opposite a quieter part of the beach but still close to the... More

Spent a lovely afternoon on 14th March at The Imperial Hotel's Terrace. We had booked a table for two for Afternoon Tea and I must compliment all staff involved, our table was reserved and beautifully set with lovely cutlery and a vase of tulips. The food was fantastic and very fresh and the staff serving were very polite, friendly and... More

Situated on the promenade road at the Caister end of the beach, the Imperial was my choice for a recent 2 night business trip to Great Yarmouth. The hotel layout is reasonably typical of a larger seaside establishment. However, it is very well maintained and not tired as is often the case. Wifi is free and available throughout the hotel....

I was very impressed by the hotel and friendly staff. Rooms were clean, fresh, and tidy and nice decor. Free wifi and smart tv in your room. Had a nice room service meal which arrived very quickly. Nice views of the dunes and sea. Definitely recommend staying here. Very quaint old style lift.

We stayed elsewhere but dined at the restaurant one evening. Nice ambience, service and food. Can't fault. The food was a bit pricey, though. But I guess it's normal for a tourist town. Might eat there again, if in the area.

Hard to fault the place - great room, spotlessly clean. Amazing food - both for evening meal (the lamb harissa was awesome) and breakfast - and wonderfully attentive staff, especially Jill (Duty Manager) and the waitresses on shift in the morning. Come and stay - you will not be disappointed !

This hotel has a good standard of accommodation, great food @ breakfast & dinner, plus the staff are professional but very friendly with nothing too much bother. The surrounding area is good for a walk or run with sea views & waterway paths., the Decoration was stunning and the food was absolutely amazing! I had a burger which was huge... More
