We didn't expect much with it only being 2 star. It could do with a bit of updating but I couldn't fault it apart from that. The staff went our of their way to be friendliness helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was so clean! I'm a bit OCD with cleaning and checked even the little screws around... More

The hotel is in the middle of town and everything is walking distance. Short on parking but we were lucky to find a spot in the... More

My wife and I have enjoyed a lovely 7 day break in early June in the Imperial. We travelled with Alpha. During our visit we went to Hartland Abbey which was very interesting but could have done with more time to explore the various walks. Lynton & Lynmouth we found to be more pleasurable than the trip to Bideford which... More

Wished we had stayed the whole night. Due to vehicle problems we eventually got to the hotel at 6am, the staff were understanding and offered us room for the next night, we couldn't stay as we were going Newquay after check out. The room was clean, shower was powerful, bed was comfy, the breakfast was lovely, the staff did everything... More
