We could only stay one night at this marvellous British hotel, but wanted to stay much longer. Owned by the same family since 1934, the staff are exceptional, well trained and their long service is obviously due to the owner's caring attitude. The food in both the hotel itself and 'Cru' downstairs (with white tablecloths) was first class with an...

First time I have ever reviewed anything whilst still staying there but the staff here are so friendly and helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. We chose the Imperial , for my partners 80th birthday treat, as it had good reviews and its own car park and and although there is no dedicated disabled parking...

Stayed for one night in a nicely appointed super-king double with a sea view and en-suite wet room. Everything looks recently refurbished and very clean. Very helpful staff from booking to checkout. Had a really good evening meal in Cafe Cru and breakfast was cooked to order and, again, was excellent. Access-wise (something we have to consider) there is a...

I recently took my elderly parents for a weekend to Great Yarmouth and we stayed here. I travel extensively through my job and spend a lot of time in Hotels but was absolutely blown away with this hotel. The rooms were fantastic with King beds, great TV's and large showers and clearly had been refurbished recently. We had proper milk...

Love the food at the Imperial always good but yesterday really was top notch. The Bream in Tempura batter was excellent and I had a Rib Eye steak better than an I had had on a recent stateside. Well done! We normally go to Café Cru but this was a late Sunday on lunch on the more competitively priced terrace.

Thank you for the review ,glad you enjoyed your meal and although we have separate menus in each restaurant ,there is duplication in some dishes which obviously will be the same price wherever they are eaten,but the same chefs cook all the food so I am delighted you enjoy all your meals here!

We come here every year for a long weekend. It's a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable, the food is excellent and the staff are amazing! My Dad broke his long cane and the wonderful staff fixed it for him so it was safe for him to use to get home. Can't wait to come back!

We stayed here for 1 night on 4th March with our little dog, very disappointed to be put on the top floor with him, bearing in mind dogs sometimes need to pee at night! But having said that the room was very nice and also lovely and clean. The shower was one of the best I've ever used in a...

Thank you for the review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay.As you can imagine there are certain issues with dogs and we try to use dog friendly rooms and they are on the top floor but as you pointed out there is a lift. Indeed most people are very grateful that they can bring their dog here as...

for the cost of the room I was expecting larger accommodation - we had booked twin with balcony and sea view - the room was very well appointed but quite small for a "suite" the bed was comfortable and the shower etc. were very plush.

We stayed here for a few days for our anniversary. Had to book just a week before as we had to change our plans as we were going abroad. We were given a lovely spacious sea view room. Staff were wonderful and very helpful. We would stay here again without question.

Stayed here on Monday night for a business meeting in Yarmouth. The outside doesn't do this hotel any favours because inside it's very nice. I love some of the old fashioned things in the hotel such as the lift. For me it adds character to the hotel. My room was nice had a good comfortable double bed with a big...

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to review,especially as being a business traveller you must stay in a lot of hotels.The Hotel was built in 1898 so does have character but I am delighted everything inside was better than you expected.
