I'm not sure what the enthusiastic reviewers are used to and perhaps it suits the people it caters for, surely this is the best hotel in the area and this should tell you a lot. The hotel is old, not only old looking, with a lift that seems to be taken out of one of dr.Who episode. If you are...

It is difficult to find anything to add to the reviews already posted. My girlfriend and I stayed for a few days during the Easter holidays. The staff were helpful and friendly, our room well-appointed with a beautiful view of the sea and the breakfasts followed in the great tradition of the “full English”; although there was plenty of choice...

Treated my friend to Afternoon Tea on the Terrace for her birthday, hotel staff very friendly & attentive & even put "Happy Birthday" confetti on the table. Tea was scrummy with lovely views over the sea.

I use the Imperial hotel when staying in Yarmouth on business. It is always very clean, the food in the terrace and restaurant is always excellent. What I find always very encouraging is that rooms are constantly being refurbished and are always of a very good standard.

We originally booked four nights at the Imperial Hotel as we wanted to explore the Norfolk Broads. We had a lovely room with a great sea view. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Even though the weather wasn't on our side, it was extremely windy and cold, we so loved the area that we decided...

Thank you for the lovely review and I am delighted that you decided to stay longer.The Terrace is indeed a little open as it is not a conservatory but we do also have Café Cru for those finding it cold,it was really a cold wind on the east coast this weekend!

No change since our last visit a few weeks ago. The same, impeccably clean, wonderful seaview room (234). Fab staff, exceptional food in 'Cru' served by the splendid Sean and the lovely Laura (ask her to prepare your Crepe Suzette at the table!) Breakfast unsurpassed. Try this great British Hotel - an oasis in the heart of Great Yarmouth.
