We have no summer holidays planned this year and to break up the long slog to our break in the fall we decided to take a Friday off of work and head to the seaside. Having chosen Great Yarmouth, the Imperial Hotel came up so well in the reviews that we didn't look any farther. We decided to splash out... More

We were out for an afternoon walk and came across this hotels restaurant.The menu looked nice so we popped in for Brunch. Had soup and main and we had nothing but praise, so a few days later we returned for a late lunch and again the top notch chef produced. Everything was cooked to perfection. The only downside we found... More

I have recently visited this hotel for food only as it is quite local to where I live. Sunday lunch and dinner in Café lunch. Dinner was to celebrate my birthday. Each time the food was really excellent. The Executive Chef's motto, don't fuss with the food, let the quality shine through, is certainly very true. The service is just... More

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel. We had 2 king size bedded single rooms with side view to the sea. They were quiet and clean but the furnishings a bit old fashioned and tired. My room had 3 different seats all covered with different fabrics which just looked a bit sad to me. The... More

Our group had a great break here. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the service in the bar and restaurant was outstanding. The food was excellent and plentiful, even on our restricted menu choice, and everyone was very happy. Our room was quite small, with not a huge amount of space to unpack a lot of things, but...

My family recently visited Great Yarmouth on a day trip. There were 10 adults and 6 children. We chose to eat at the Imperial Hotel because the staff were very accomodating to our large group, very friendly, very professional and the food was EXCELLENT :-) We will always choose this hotel/restaurant in the future.....brilliant lunch.

A very nice hotel, with very welcoming staff. All seemed very courteous and efficient. The restaurant is exceptional again with very quiet and efficient staff, food was first rate and was served quickly and politely. The bedroom was cosy but big enough for us and was very tastefully decorated to a high standard. The bed was very comfy, the room... More

Just visited The Terrace at the Imperial Hotel for lunch and couldn't have found a nicer place on a sunny day to while away a couple of hours. Lovely sea view from our table by the window and good selection on the menu, from sandwiches to steak. We three opted for cheese souflee, pea, bean and asparagus taglatelli and spiced... More

We have just returned from yet another wonderful break at this outstanding family-run hotel, the only four star hotel in Yarmouth. We only booked one week in advance instead of our usual many months but were accommodated in one do the newly decorated rooms on the front of the hotel overlooking the sea. Now ready for our September holiday.
