First time we have traveled with Alfa, nice coaches and friendly drivers, we had Harvey for the week who was informative on the tours. When we arrived the hotel manager came on the coach and informed us of the meal times and the area. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful. Our room was huge with lovely bathroom and...

Had a week in the Imperial hotel with Alfa coach tours. First impressions very good. The manager and staff were very pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good with plenty of choice for both breakfast and evening meal. All diets were catered for, vegetarian, gluten free, light meals etc, something for everyone. Our waiter,... More

My elderly mum has just returned from a 5 day break at this hotel and has said it was one of the worst places she has stayed! The food was terrible. From burnt toast every morning to dry chicken or soggy pastry pies in the evening. Many complaints were made but the staff didn't seem to care. Whilst the room... More

Just back from an Alfa Holiday in Ilfracombe. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I know some folk have moaned that this hotel had more than its share of elderly people but guests were friendly, polite and pleasant. The staff could not have been more helpful. The chef coped wonderfully with my restricted diet and our waiter never once made me feel that... More

Hotel has no parking in the summer, the parking opposite is expensive. Inside the hotel is clean, but dated, rooms are small, but have all you need. Incredibly thin walls. Rubbish views. Breakfast is like an army excessive! Between 8-9. Staff not interested generally, but not rude or anything on the whole. Nice town, stunning views. Would highly recommend local... More

Found hotel room small, bedlinen and towels nice and white. Ideally situated, short walk to the harbour. Staff friendly and helpful, good choice for breakfast - recommend full English. We had a room with a sea view, worth that bit extra, would stay here again.

Rooms were dirty. Paint peeling off window frames. Curtains filthy and falling apart. The food was all frozen served by staff who clearly would rather be somewhere else. The most boring place I have ever been to. The main shopping area consisted of mainly ice cream and fudge shops. The theatre facing the hotel resembled 3 cooling towers surrounded by... More
