I recently visited the restaurant for Valentines Night. Despite there was only a set Menu being the night in question, I could happily have eaten everything on the Menu. Excellent value and service was excellent.Food was one of the best meals ever.

It was our second time staying at The Old Imperial. Friendly efficient staff. Room was basic but clean and was relative to the price we paid. Breakfast was very tasty. I would stay again and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a central location with the personal touches only a small hotel will have.
