Details make all the difference
It was the details that disappointed us at the Imperial Hotel, things like the bedspread was ripped, there was no teaspoons to make a drink and both the fan and jug did not work. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and all the staff were very pleasant but we still left feeling we would not stay there again or recommend it to friends.

Friendly staff. Very old hotel. well kept & ideal for a bed for the night. Having to share bathrooms was OK for us for 1 night, but might be inconvenient for some.

Value for money
The room and shared bathroom were basic but very clean. It was good enough for a night stay.

Pleasant hotel
I booked a single room for two nights. The room was fine, although I did have to move some furniture around to get access to the plug closest to the bed, the bed comfortable enough. Not ensuite and the bathroom was down the hall and around a couple of corners. The showers were good and the bathroom was very clean. The kitchen doesn’t open in the mornings for breakfast, but there are plenty of cafes nearby. There is a restaurant, which was okay for a dinner, but a little pricey for what it was, I thought. WiFi was okay. The owner/manager was very friendly and frequently asking if everything was okay, whenever he saw you.
