My husband and I have just come back from a 3 night break at the Imperial, and cannot recommend the place highly enough!!

The breakfast was wonderful, with a good selection of cereals, fruit, fresh juices and croissants, followed by a full cooked breakfast of your choice. We didn't try the restaurant in the evenings, although it seemed very popular! However, the food ordered from room service was delicious.

The staff were all very friendly, efficient and attentive, and were keen to make sure that we were happy. Our room, although quite small, had an enormous bathroom, and even though we were on the fifth floor, overlooking the car park, we actually had lovely views of the Great Orme and the sea, towards Conwy in the distance!

The hotel itself was immaculate and very well equipped, with a gym and an indoor swimming pool, which is ideal to keep children entertained during bad weather. The hotel is situated in a fantastic position right on the sea front, which makes it a very pleasant 2 min stroll to the shops, the pier and the Great Orme.

People in previous reviews have criticised the hotel's car park, as it is very small and will only fit about 20 - 30 cars. However, parking in front of the hotel works out at only £1.50 for 24 hours, so we didn't even bother with the car park!

If it helps, we got quite a good deal through the hotel's own website, so it might be worth checking the prices / special offers on there before booking. We would definitely return!

This was our first visit to the Imperial Hotel at Llandudno and overall we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well-maintained and well-managed and has an excellent position on the seafront. My wife and I asked for (and got) a quiet room on the fifth floor because of previous experiences of kitchen extractor fans keeping us awake on the non-view side of some hotels we've visited. As we were on a 4 day package over the Christmas 2006 holiday period we had excellent food, service, organised entertainment and presents.

The good points? The staff (many from Eastern Europe) were extremely hard-working and a request to change from a duvet to sheets and blankets, for example, was actioned within minutes. The building was warm and clean and the bedroom excellent.

The bad points? We agree with an earlier tripadvisor commentator that the car park is tiny and we were effectively blocked in for the duration. The dance area was a bit austere and could have done with a bit more of the festive spirit. Oh yes, and then there were the OAPs ... not the fault of the hotel but we felt a little overwhelmed by the Zimmer brigade!

Hotel has been refurbished sice my last stay, reception friendly on check in but no help offered with luggage etc, even though its obvious I am disabled. Not shown to room either. Front of hotel has steps so used back entrence which was quite dirty and a bit wiffy!

Room large (very large!) bathroom a very good size, bath excellent also.

A bit nosiy if you open the windows (extractor fan? music) but ok.

Small carpark which was not easy to find and not always a space.

Breakfasts not good. Ordered porridge and kippers given kippers before porridge twice.
Asked for runny eggs but always rock hard. The table was dirty, and getting a coffee was very hard work. The staff did not seem to be allocated tables.

Ordered cheese and biscuits but no biscuits!
Was supposed to have a veggie option but also ran out!
No relaxing areas to sit in as open to non residents and people tend to use it as a base for the days so residents often unable to find seats.

If they got the food in order this could be a nice hotel, but otherwise chose the St Tudno, Empire or Osbourne if you want to eat!

I have just returned from a three night break at the Imperial Hotel in Llandudno and wished to share my enjoyment of this superb hotel with other holiday makers.

My room was clean, comfy, light and airy with wonderful decor and the food, both in the restaurant at breakfast and in the evening, and also on the terrace at lunch time was to a very high standard.

All in all, this hotel and the staff gave me a holiday to be fondly remembered.

my husband and i have just come back from a holiday here.
the drinks are a little expensive and if you buy extra vegetables at dinner you will be charged for these but i feel you need them in order to bulk out your meal.
there are no changing facilities for the health club so you need to change in your room and go down in a robe provided by the hotel so take your slippers
having said all that i loved the hotel it was spotlessley clean and our room was huge
the food is delicious and the view breathtaking
the staff were lovely and i felt like i was staying on a paradise island.
well worth the money
