This was great value for the deal we were on so no real complaints. However avoid room 307. It is right next to a noisy boiler room which drones on until the early hours and then restarts at 04.00. Having visited this last week (very cold outside) we had the upper and lower windows open and a fan provided by...

I treated myself to a short break for bday. I had a junior suite which was lovely. Although overlooking the sea, there is work ongoing on, so was quite busy and noisy. A spot light shone directly into my room (120) slightly annoying. There were no gowns (which were included in package) or coffee tabs for machine, although I did...

Great building very imposing entrance. Some places in the Hotel are still to have the makeover but this did not spoil our enjoyment. A room upgrade was given without asking! beautiful bed linen and large fluffy towels and toiletries, for me the coffee kettle makes such a difference. We were there just the one night so enjoyed a bottle of...

First impression was good as we were told that the room was ready at 1pm, and we had received a free superior room upgrade. However that room was on the ground floor with no sea views, and only rubbish skips being filled, so for an additional £10 pn we were moved to 2nd floor with much nicer aspect. Unfortunately it...

The Hythe is a mixed bag really... I stay here frequently for business and always have a similar experience. Pros: The newly refurbished rooms are SUPERB. The gym has a really good selection of equipment. Half the staff are super friendly and professional. Restaurant food is superb (if a touch pricey). Great location. Cons: The pool and spa is in...

I stayed here on 8th Jaunary. My fifth visit as we love this hotel. To say we were disappointed with this last visit would be an understatement. From the moment we checked in by the duty manager who quite honestly had no interpersonal skills it was not as had always been however the duty manager of the day was consistent...

On arrival we were quickly checked in and upgraded to Junior Suites. This was a Christmas gift to my parents so was very pleased with the bigger rooms. They were beautifully decorated and furnished. Before dinner we had a few cocktails in the Moet & Chandon bar. Although they are quite pricy, they were well made and the two guys...

I had a super stay at The Hythe Imperial using their £50 December and January promotion. The refurbishment of the hotel is excellent & I had a very comfortable stay! The only negatives were that some staff had very, very limited English making it difficult to communicate and breakfast was dry and over-cooked. I was able to order a poached...
