This hotel caters for the coach-party trade, but is still a very good choice for the independent traveller. Right on the seafront in Exmouth, with very pleasant gardens in front (and car-parking - free when I visited, but possibly chargeable in peak season?). My room was large and comfortable, with a decent bath and shower. A nice bar downstairs, and... More

My Husband and I stayed at the Imperial for only one night as we had returned to Exmouth to visit friends.

We were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary on 15th February 2014 and having been married in Exmouth and with our reception at the hotel it was unthinkable to stay anywhere else.

Exmouth is our home town, and when visiting family we always stay at the Imperial hotel. We've never been anything but delighted. The staff are all friendly and very helpful. We are always looking forward to the next stay even before we depart.
