We saw an advert in the paper and booked on line for a week-end break. The hotel has a splendid location on the esplanade within 5 minutes walk of the town centre. On the Saturday night there was first class entertainment with a country singer called Suzanna Shore. Very good

We stayed for 5 nights on a self drive holiday & as we were hotel hopping this August from Cornwall to Devon, this was the best by far. Fair enough the entrance isn't the most inviting but once inside we couldn't have been happier. Our large seaview room was superb & the food very enjoyable. If I had to find... More

We booked online on the way to Devon for a short weekend break. We did not even know our destination let alone accommodation when we left home. We booked online and it was smashing. From the moment we stepped inside I knew we had made a good choice. Professional welcoming reception staff. Lovely clean room with modern facilities (Victorian Building)... More

Amazed that such a prominent site could be occupied by a shabby, neglected building. The exterior is desperately in need of renovation, the entrance is obscure, signage poor and the grounds in desperate need of a good gardening team. Difficult to see just what the Imperial is trying to be. I live locally but this place totally lacks any local... More

We enjoyed a very good Monday to Friday break at this hotel on a Shearings coach trip. We chose the trip/hotel for its location and being one of the Coast and Country group. We were pleasantly surprised with the room which was at the front of the hotel facing towards the park and town. This side of the hotel is... More

We stayed in Exmouth on the seafront for a three night weekend break at the end of July 2014. We chose the Imperial Hotel run by Shearings as part of their Coast and Country chain as we had stayed there two years before early in the season and quite enjoyed it. We then paid a supplementary charge and stayed in... More

Just returned from a five day break at this hotel. We were lucky enough to have good weather and found the outside facilities excellent with lovey gardens and an attractive patio all looking out over the sea. The evening meals were adequate the breakfasts excellent. The room was clean and had all the necessary facilities. The staff were very helpful.... More

The gardens were lovely the patio area nice at first glance but but very shabby with rotting gutters and... More

We returned to this hotel for a weekend break; we had been disappointed with the food at the group's hotel in St Mawes and wanted to see if the Imperial's standards had been maintained from a previous visit last year. Happily it was. The choice was reasonable, the vegetables were fresh rather than canned, and the food appeared to have... More
