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.

I have to say it has been a great pleasure to stay at this hotel, All the staff were amazing, friendly and helpful. The food was good, hot and served in a timely manor. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel was just a quick walk away from town. I have to say the 2 bar staff Andrei and Joseph really made our stay, they were funny and liked to gave a good laugh with you which is what you want when you go away, will definitely come back again for a group holiday.

3 star hotel so not too sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. The system works. We felt looked after by Mark (driver) & received a warm welcome on arrival. Luggage delivered to our door (bonus). Room/bathroom was spacious & very clean. Mattress was very soft & unable to sit on bed as felt as if sinking to floor - but we slept well. The food was good - choice of breakfast & evening meals were adequate for us. Staff were so friendly at all levels - to be congratulated!! 🙂 The hotel was warm & very well presented. Room service every day, room left spotless & nothing too much trouble. A very positive experience.

Excellent service from start to finish. Very friendly and efficient staff. Our room was great like a mini suite. Maggie our waitress worked so hard to make sure our dining experience was perfect. Andrei , Joseph and Stefan on the bar were good fun. Our salads were so good ,as were our poached eggs etc The management team were approachable , friendly and were proud of their hotel,as they should be. Our housekeeper always kept our room nice for us. Well done to All of the Imperial team .

This hotel is really nice. It is in a good location for the beach, shops and theatres. We had a lovely room which had 4 beds in it so there was plenty of room. We have stayed there many times and will be going again in the near future. They take your luggage which is a big help. Lifts are small tho, only 3 passengers at one time

Requested a boiled egg instead of fried with English breakfast it was an impossible task for the Hotel. Just cannot understand why ??? Tiny portion for all meals. It could be cutting cost. They may think that the food is so bad that no one wants to eat it. Poor quality food.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with some elements of the holiday. We offer a 3 course evening meal and the portion sizes are standard for most and are happy to offer extra if requested. Boiled eggs are available however there is a time element to this and are not prepared in advance. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.
