      Nice Hotel

      Really nice hotel, close to the harbour - 5 minutes easy walk . Our room had good views over the bay.

    • 8.0.Very good

      Hotel had good sized rooms, with fantastic views over the bay. Having a terrace was definitely worth paying the extra.

      Value for money

      Relaxing atmosphere, old style, great view, excellent location and friendly staff. You get value for your money with an included gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room. Recommending the breakfast!

      We had a lovely stay. Lovely friendly staff. A nice view of Torbay. Only little thing that spoiled our stay if i was being picky was that the door to the terrace was locked and we couldn't go outside as there was some work going on. Otherwise excellent.

      Not overly impressed

      Nice clean hotel, extra charge for the dog (which was not shared with us prior), rude staff and over priced for what it is. Expensive breakfast and unable to get through to room service or reception. Paid extra for a room with a sea view / balcony but had a giant pine tree in the way. Not overly impressed.

      Tired short staffed hotel living off its position

      The hotel was very short staffed from reception to the bar - a tired hotel that should be a maximum of £80 per night We waited more than 20 minutes to be served with a drink in the bar lounge (it was table service only) when I asked a 2nd time if we were going to be served I was told the by the bar lady that she had guests coming out of her ears and was very busy - for a 4 star hotel it was very poor service. The reception Manager was the only senior member of staff on site and said she would get us a drink when I went to the hotel reception to complain - not sure how a guest is less important than a staff member. Would not go there again no direction for staff and no support for them - we left the bar area without a drink and went to the next hotel called The Headland Hotel where Katie in the bar served us immediately with a smile and pleasantries- The Imperial need a Katie or two

      A very enjoyable weekend break

      We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Imperial Hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel worked vey well under the Covid restrictions and there were plenty of hand sanitisers placed around the Hotel and everything felt very clean and wiped down. The Restaurant worked very well and tables were well spaced apart with table service.
