Stayed here on a Friday night. Booked a single room but was allocated an attractive double room, which was pretty basic but very comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet, with a decent en-suite shower-room. The staff are efficient and welcoming and the public areas are well-furnished and have a warm ambience; the bar is particularly lovely. I liked this hotel very... More

Great Location very close to the Pier Beach Town and Station. Very big restaurant and 2 bars one with evening entertainment. Good sized rooms with a good sized bathroom. Bit of trouble with the lifts of which there are two but they only take 3 people at a time !!

The journey was very good except for a short wait for the feeder coach, due to an accident on the motorway & our return journey was very similar. Our main driver Gordon was very efficient and most knowledgable making for very interesting trips out. Our Hotel the Imperial was quite oldfashioned and the room was rather small and stuffy but...

My girlfriend, baby and I stayed here for a Saturday night. Upon arriving we were greeted by a wonderfully cheerful and helpful receptionist who booked us in and explained about the £1 parking permit. She gave us our key and pointed us in the right direction of our room. Quick, efficient and easy. The hotel is an old(ish) building and... More

Hotel average for star rating, but all staff were very helpful and friendly. Menu gave a varied choice, but evening meal has to be ordered immediately breakfast is over! The entertainment was fine, although most folks went to bed after their evening meal. The biggest draw back for me was that the free Wifi advertised does NOT exist and according... More

Our 2 night stay started on a Fri and the ‘deal’ purchased via “Living Social” was for Bed Breakfast & Evening Meal. Although the Imperial Hotel is in need of modernising, it was well kept and really quite clean. The Reception Staff were very attentive and even remembered my name from a previous phone call a week earlier to enquire... More

We normally stay elsewhere in Eastbourne when visiting but a good deal drew us into a visit to The Imperial. The room we had was small and a very small shower room. A very tired uncomfortable bed in need of a new mattress with a bedspread that needed laundering, although the sheets were crisp and clean underneath. There was no... More
