Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Took my partner away for a birthday mini break. Booked a deluxe sea view room, and the views certainly did not disappoint. Overall great experience. Stylish hotel with very friendly staff, only a short walk away from the centre.

Disappointing on many levels. Tired room, no access to the balcony. Parts of the spa boarded off. The breakfast is very good and views whilst in the restaurant are great. The restaurant menu was nt really family orientated. Lack of any spa treatments for under 16s.

Had a fabulous stay at The Imperial Hotel. The staff went above and beyond especially Christian (hotel manager) and Richard in the restaurant. Christian was fantastic and really helped when we stumbled across a few hiccups and Richard in the restaurant was incredible and nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we can’t wait to return at some point this year. I personally wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Torquay as you couldn’t beat this hotel. Thank you all x

Stunning views from sea facing rooms. Really comfortable bed and armchairs. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent, buffet style and everything you could want. Whole hotplate of vegetarian options too. Great selection of meats and cheeses if continental preferred. Evening menu limited but choice of red meat, fish and vegetarian. All delicious. We will be booking another stay soon.

One of the best hotels in the world. I didn't want to leave. Best dinner service. Best hand soaps. Best views. Walking through the entrance is like walking into paradise with the best scent you could breathe in and out and the best sight of chandlers and friendly and helpful staff.
