We spend a lot of time visiting our extended family and therefore use a lot of 1 night hotel stopovers. We know Plymouth well, but this was the first time at the Imperial. It won't be the last - it is a gem of a place made all the better by a welcoming and professional team. We arrived quite late...

We enjoyed a warm greeting, personal attention, impeccable service and a delicious breakfast. The Imperial Plymouth was in a great location for walking trips to some of the town's highlights and kicking off a road trip to Cornwall.

The rooms we had were wonderful, very clean with loads of extras, our son loved the biscuits. The staff were great and couldn't do enough to help us and the breakfast was stunning especially as 2 of us are vegetarian. Would recommend

We booked two rooms (double/triple) for flying family visit just after New Year, so very off-season. Husband & write staff team couldn't have been more helpful to make us feel welcome, even co-ordinating with two separate arrival times and sending on the latecomers to recommended late-serving restaurant, whilst demonstrating expertise in juggling cars around mini-car park (but generous by town...

Just stayed for an overnight to enjoy a visit to the very near by Lyric theatre. The hotel has an imposing Georgian frontage and that great sense of space inside. Has some parking on the frontage and is a 2 block walk down gentle slope to the shops and Theatre. Modern and shiny large en-suite in the spacious room. Breakfast...

The Imperial is ideally located to access the City Centre, Theatre and nearby restaurants as well as the Hoe and Barbican. Staff are friendly, helpful and the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was first class with freshly cooked to order food with a wide choice from full English to a lighter continental offering. (Even Kippers for those who like them!!)

We only wanted to be in Plymouth one night but needed parking, and walking distance to shops and aquarium and restaurants. This hotel fitted the bill as well as being well run, clean, good wifi, comfy room, friendly staff and lovely breakfast.
