I stayed here for the first time last week. First impressions from the outside were that the hotel needs some work. The exterior looks tired and in need of a lick of paint and some tlc. Walking into the reception and my thoughts were the same as the exterior. Looking at the heavily stained brown carpet walking up the stairs... More

How this place gets a four star rating is unbelievable. I have stayed here twice for work in the past month (June 2016). The whole place is in dire need of refurbishment. The décor is very old and tired. The rooms are very basic, my room on the front, had two sash windows, one of which (bedroom) had to be... More

Stayed in a small single room for work. Room had an enormous crack in both walls as if the room was going to fall apart. The night wasn't particularly warm (June in the Lake District) but the room was unbearably hot resulting in very little sleep. Had to sleep with the window wide open which was not ideal as the...

We stayed here at the start of the bay cycle way - I didn't place the booking but after having read some reviews of the hotel was not looking forward to visit - however I need not have worried - I had a double room which was good - clean and comfortable with en suite shower room. The staff in... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and it was lovely. We booked the superior room which we expected to have a walk in wet room etc but it did not, I think the room descriptions should be a little clearer, though we booked through Laterooms.com so it could just be less descriptive on their side. The room... More

We have just visited the Aspire cocktail lounge ... For a cocktail? We actually returned our cocktail 1 Long Island tea and an old fashioned back to the bar staff as we paid and left, we have never tasted anything like it... The staff didn't even offer to make any alternatives to replace them or even ask what the problem... More

We booked a room at the Imperial on a last minute get away and travelled 5 miles to arrive. On arrival we were met with a blaring party going off in the function room and yet the staff could not have been more helpful advising us that the party would be ending in ten minutes. It was and the hotel... More

My wife and I stayed here on Saturday 28th May.We were in room 403. We were amazed at the room, considering it was only £50. It had a bedroom with a flat screen TV on the wall, a living room with a leather settee and another flat screen TV on the wall. The bathroom had the largest bath we've ever... More
