“Our weekend was up to the usual extremely high standard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

We have been going to the Empire Hotel for a weekend. once a twice a year for 20 years. The rooms are all excellent, the food is fantastic, and the service in the dining room is the best we have ever come across in our travels around much of the world. And the amazing thing is you don't have to name a time you plan to eat, just turn up during the published hours.
Service and friendliness excellent all round.
.Enough parking for all guests
Pool, sauna and steam room good. Gym only adequate for my exacting standards

Room Tip: This is a very heavily booked hotel, book very well in advance to get the best rooms at the front. I...

We were really impressed by The Empire Hotel - it's great to find a hotel which has that 'just right' quality. The room (in No 72) was spacious (but not cavernous), decorated in a style appropriate to the age of the building but not twee or chintzy. We loved the little touches such as real leaf tea (as well as tea-bags, if preferred), real coffee and a cafetiere, milk in the fridge. Plus the decanter of sherry. Towels were fluffy, the bed was very comfortable and there was a double chaise-settee for reading and lounging. We ate in the restaurant the first night and thought the meal was exceptional value for the price - £21.95 (I think) pp for 4 courses plus tea or coffee. The dining room has a nice ambiance and the service was excellent - fast and efficient without being obtrusive. The weather during our stay was fabulous so we were out walking (as opposed to using the spa, which I was rather looking forward to) but we did take advantage of the hotel's excellent DVD collection (free loan from reception). Wi-fi free too. The hotel's in a good position close, but not on, the sea-front so we had less noise than most of the other hotels. Finally, car parking was fine - they've got two or three little pockets of car parking spaces/car parks and will let you double park if necessary and they'll move the car for you if they need to. All in all an excellent comfortable stay and very well recommended.

Room Tip: We were in the annex building (No 72) which was lovely and very quiet. Just be aware there are quite...

we have just returned from a weekend break for our friends 50th birthday celebration. ( he and his wife are regular guests) we had a great time from begining to end. we were a party of 38 and were seated a the end of the resteraunt on 3 tables for all meals. Food was great. fantastic choice and service.
our room was in number 72. great room, spotless and lovely touches. we were on the top floor as stated there is no lift but rooms were fab. The disco on the sat night was great fun with a good atmosphere with all joining in.(all ages). This really is a true gem and the family feel and commitment is evident throughout.

Just returned from a midweek break at this gorgeous hotel and have been telling everyone about how gorgeous it was. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. Parking was no problem in the hotel car park. Had no need to move the car over the 3 days we were there as we were happy to wander into town, up to the Tram to visit the Great Orme (only a few doors up the same street!) and to be honest we didn't want to leave the hotel it was so comfy and relaxing! The spa is simply devine. The pool is really special, the lighting is so relaxing. I happily moved from sauna to steam room to pool to the loungers to read my book. I had the added luxury of a hot stone full body massage treatment from Leanne which was total luxury. We ate both nights in the restaurant, 4 courses, delicious food that I can't fault. Service very fast and very attentive staff. It was busy both in the restaurant and poolside restaurant (which is a good sign in my book!) so there was a good atmosphere. Hopefully we'll get the chance to return here again soon, I'd certainly recommend The Empire for a relaxing midweek break.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor which was nice and quiet and handy for the lift to the spa with your r...

Just returned once more from a great midweek break. We have been staying here for short breaks at least once a year for more than twenty years. It is like returning home, having known each generation of the family that has managed the hotel. Seen numerous changes over the years; always for the better. All rooms tastefully furnished and long serving staff who are happy to look after your every need. Dining experience wonderful with an extensive and well cooked menu. Perhaps it does help when the executive chef, Michael, is the husband of Elysse, the current manager. Well done to all and looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: We have never had a bad room. Obviously the larger ones are dearer and the rooms in No 72, next to...

We stayed at the Empire wooed by the excellent website, the whole experience was a delight. Plenty of parking space althought the hotel was full, straightforward check-in, and assistance with our luggage, and friendly advice about the room and meals and taxis.

The room was eclectic with a lovely feel, as had the whole hotel, plenty of light, quality curtains, excellent bed and duvet and linen. Pleasant surprise was a decanter with sherry in a very nice touch, on reflection 2 bottles of water would have been good, I dont like sherry but thought ida was lovely touch.

Menu was excellent and very reasonable and geared to those wanting to go to theatre, with 2 courses taken and dessert on return served in room. Bars very comfortable and good wines. Breakfast was most enjoyable with good quality incredients. I was disappointed in the fact that they were unable to do friend bread, the only time i will have it is in a hotel as a treat. Most places seem to say not healthy option, yet they do friend breakfast. This wasn't issue, excellent waiter service.Quality of all staff encourtered was top notch.

Spa facilities tucked away a good pool, jacuzzi steam and sauna. We had the pool to our self on Sunday morning.

It may only have been a last minute booking to go to the theatre but we want to go back as soon as we can and are making excuses.

I loved the ambiance and if our room was anything to go by the styling is very relaxing.

Dont go our to eat, book the restaurant.
