We stayed at the Imperial for 2 nights. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was varied and very fresh and the staff couldn't do enough for us Would definitely recommend. It was good value for money and excellent location near The Hoe

Got to the ferry through security only to find I left my mobile in the room. Rang the Imperial and without hesitation,they arranged a taxi to collect my phone from the hotel to bring... More

Excellent location, very welcoming and informative. Clean room with all essentials provided. Comfortable bed and quiet. Plenty of choice on breakfast menu, friendly polite staff and delicious breakfast. Plus free car parking with easy access to the hoe and into the centre. Perfect for parent of Plymouth university students.

I love this little guesthouse. It's housed in a converted old building and the way it was refurbished was really tops. My partner and I stayed here overnight and while we weren't able to get a double room (we had to stay in a twin room due to some miscommunication), the staff was friendly and lovely enough that it offset...

Staying here for a week. Very friendly staff. Really good breakfast-plenty of fresh fruits, nice pancakes. I got a small room (some are bigger than thus one) but it's got everything you need. Quiet at night.

Came to Plymouth for a funeral. Chose the Imperial for its location. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful but a special mention must go to Rachel. She stayed behind long after her shift finished talking with dad and I about nothing in particular, which was really appreciated. If we are ever back in Plymouth we will not... More

The Imperial is in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the Barbican area with its restaurants and bars. The gentleman on reception was friendly and helpful. The room was large, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was well presented with reasonable food and very polite and attentive staff. Very good value.
