Recently visited this charming and unique hotel. A refreshing change from the omni-same hotels that I normally have to stay in with work. The original stained glass window and fabulous wall freezes were quite a site. Being on the top floor I used the victorian lift every day and what an adventure it was! The room was large and airy...

Beautiful original Victorian property with magnificent reception rooms, The quirky, and again original, lift takes you to the upper floors whilst looking into the grand central hall. Bedrooms basic but comfortable for travellers. Quiet, relaxing ....... breakfast inside or out ........ a hidden away gem!

Fantastic Hotel with French surroundings, a real Jewel. The service was excellent. One I will never forget. Please give it a try and keep this Hotel on the map.

If you are looking for a spa cocktail bar as an essential this is not for you but if you want to step back in time and experience the joys of what was an imperial palace 100 years ago you just have to go for the experience. It's clean, quirky unlike any other hotel you may have stopped in. In...

We've all stayed in those standard hotels that are the same wherever you are in the world, this hotel is NOT one of those! This hotel is a unique, charming experience.

I have visited this magnificent hotel on and off for 20 years. It is run by a lovely family who are very friendly and welcoming, and will look after you really well on your stay. We were a group of 14 on this visit, and every member of the group were full of praise for the hotel, and the unique...

Got this hotel through the Tourist information on Bank Holiday weekend. The building and décor in the main rooms including the antique lift are amazing. The room was clean but in need of a refurb. We didn't mind too much as we had lived in a tent for the last 3 weeks but I might have been more critical If...

If you're looking for fin-de siècle French atmosphere without breaking the bank, this is the place. Hotel Imperial saved my life after a spending a horrendous first night in a city centre pigsty (there was a fight outside my door around 1am!), next morning I found this enchanted place and had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming....

It wasn't the best hotel ever, but it did the job. At first, It looked very cute and charming, but we soon learned that it wasn't very modern. Cons: --Only some of us had air conditioning, but it just so happened that it wasn't terribly hot so we got by. --Apparently my room had a 'tiny shower,' as one of...

“Don't get room 10 if you want AC and wifi! All I know is that the corner rooms tend to have more difficulty with it.”
  • Some chairs, a tv
  • A small table in the room that didn't serve much purpose for us
  • A cute little balcony
  • The view!
