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.

1 night stay
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.

Good bang for your buck
It was good for what it was. The man at the desk was super helpful and told us if he needed anything to not be afraid to ask them. The room and especially the beds were clean. Had no issues with the communal bathroom and showers. If you have trouble going up a flight of stairs, this place isn’t for you.
