My wife and I have stayed at the Imperial three times before. We have asked for sea view and having joined their Leisure Card (covers all PUMA hotels) we have been upgraded to superior rooms. These are huge with Super King bed, modern bathroom, balcony complete with sun loungers and the most amazing view over Torbay to Brixham. The hotel is slowly being refurbished by Puma. The rooms are great; the corridors still creak and the carpet is showing its age. These are being replaced aver time. The hotel has indoor and outdoor pools and a well equipped gym, plus treatment rooms. The bar, lounges and restaurant all have the great views.
The bar food is excellent. Freshly prepared and well presented. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is a hot and cold buffet including porridge (if you look for it). My only criticism is the dinner menu. I asked for the seafood selection and it was all pre-prepared and I suspect from large frozen packets. The sort you would buy from a supermarket to reheat. With Brixham across the bay and the most superb fish restaurant about 100 yards away ("No. 7"), I was disappointed. We stuck to the bar menu the next night. We really love the Imperial. Slightly old fashioned but good rooms, amazing views, comfy lounges. easy walking distance into Torquay and a nearby ferry across the bay to Brixham (spring and summer only).More
