The average reviews made me slightly nervous of this hotel, I love good service and luxury but I need not have worried, this hotel had both. Having stayed at Splendido on a previous visit and returning again this time, I actually found the food and service at Imperiale equally as good but at a fraction of the price! I kept... More

We had a fantastic 7 night stay in this hotel. It's a beautiful hotel, the staff were great, breakfast on the terrace was fab and the private beach at the sea was something else. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Santa margherita!

I would say it is one of the most beautiful hotels around Portofino. The rooms are very clean, classic italian antique rosewood furniture neat and beautiful with marble bathrooms and beautiful views. You get a sense of history and feel in another time. The dining rooms and breakfast areas are beautiful and impressive. The private beach and the gardens must... More

We stayed here as a couple June 2016 and had a really nice, relaxing stay. The hotel is a grand old lady of a place with magnificent vaulted ceilings and a light, airy atmosphere. It has a beautiful garden which is steep but leads down to the private beach and swimming pool. Service is excellent all round and the breakfast... More

We have stayed in many beautiful and elegant hotels, but the Hotel Imperiale is one of our top 5 hotels in the world. It is certainly one of the finest, in terms of architecture and furnishings, as well as having beautifully tended gardens and pool terracing. The Imperiale is also the most spotless hotel we have ever stayed in -... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Breakfast was included and it was an incredible buffet with everything you can think of offered and it was set up in a beautiful room with an outdoor patio. The rooms were large and had plenty of storage space. The beds were comfortable. We had a balcony the entire length of... More

This is a marvellous hotel. Stunning location, excellent cuisine and wines, and great fun. But, don't settle for a back room. Pay or fight for a sea view, or don't stay. It's worth it. The light streams in, as the shutters are drawn back, and the views are worth the cost, even if a bit noisy. A back room could... More

We didn't stay here, just popped in for coffee while out and about in Santa Margherita. It's certainly a beautiful place, and seemed like the perfect stop to enjoy a lovely view of the town and harbour while sipping an afternoon coffee under the lemon trees and bougainvillea. We ordered 2 double espressos, which were served with a dainty collection... More

Staff is great except for the unfriendly front desk lady that gave incorrect info with a bad attitude, rest of the staff was A+, hence the 4 stars. The gentleman that runs the breakfast dinning room is a real class act. Staff at pool is great. Lots of stairs may be only downfall, to beach if you are not good... More
