The Imperial has an old school, traditional feel. The location is central, with shops, bars, restaurants etc on the doorstep. The rooms are not modern ( if that is what you're looking for), but we found them clean and beds really comfortable. Tara on reception was a Godsend,

Response from Derek C, General Manager at The Imperial Hotel, Tralee.
Responded May 11, 2019
Dear franksV1372NB, Thank you for your kind comments regarding our team here at The Imperial Hotel Tralee. We realise all Hotels best asset is its Team and we are delighted that you felt we achieved an A+ in this regard. With regard to the breakfast, I am truly sorry that it was not as you expected it. I am sorry that there was a stain on the tablecloth and menu, this should of course not have happened at all. However, I need to take you up on a couple of points. All our fried eggs are cooked in fresh oil each morning and never grease. I agree that it was back in the 80's when this used to happen , but it was the 80's when it last happened here too. To suggest that we deep fry any breakfast item is beyond comprehension really. We do ask guests what they feel about their stay and regularly breakfast is up there with the excellent comments. I am very sorry that you did not feel you could return again because of breakfast, when all else was very pleasant. I do wish you very well and if you do visit by chance again, you will be warmly welcomed. Thank you, Derek Carroll, Manager.
