Imperial needs a face lift
Awful attic room, no way 4 star, tiny window, signs on rafters saying 'mind your head', 1 toilet roll for family room, faulty plug, could hear snoring from another room, tatty and tired, will not stay again.

Good 6.0
The service just about saves it........
We has a few issues with the house keeping at the start but the manager (Alison) was straight on to it and sorted those out for us with great efficiency - however, the cleanliness does rather let the hotel down. The TV had so much dust on it, it clearly hadn't been cleaned in a while - there were empty bottles left in the hallways for a whole afternoon and evening from the previous occupants of our room. The bathroom was not cleaned at all during our stay - towels were not folded and beds were not made. A glass I had used one day was clearly wiped over and put back the next, but still had my lipsick on it. Such a shame - it is a beautiful hotel but it really needs some upgrading. Lots of brown water stains on the ceilings in various places. The service here is excellent - the staff are super friendly which makes you feel welcome (apart from the lady who checked me out who clearly was completely disinterested and was quite rude to the client after me) The food is superb and I would stay here again butI wouldn't pay for a 'Deluxe' room as I couldn't really see what I had paid extra for. We got the use of a bath robe, an apple & a cake. This trip was for a very special event for my Mother and she has stayed in this hotel on 2 occasions before and had a better room for less money - so that was disappointing to say the least.

Very good 8.0
Tram stop right across the road. Parking on site
A grand old hotel away from the noisy part of Blackpool but still within walking distance of the town. The tram stop was right across the road and they ran every 10 minutes. The breakfasts were great and we also enjoyed a bar snack there. Staff were friendly and efficient. We liked the fact that for £7 a day you could park your car at the front of the hotel and not have to worry about it.
