Reviewed 14 April 2012

I stayed for a short break with my daughter and we were delighted with our room, facilities and the wonderful breakfast buffet. The swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room were fab! Staff were very helpful and friendly. Don't miss out. Book now!

We stayed in Room 112 and after reading some of the stories on here were only pleasantly surprised with our experience. Fantasticly spacious family room given to us with sea view. We booked on the Barcelo deal 50% off so value for money as a lot to do with how pleased we were with the hotel. Breakfast has a vast variety of choice but get there early-ish if you dont want to queue to be seated or use the toast machine. Pool and leisure facilities basic but pleasant and there is now a great kids room and games rooms downstairs. My wife and I played table tennis whilst the little one crawled through ball pools and down slides. Bar is too expensive but other than that we have no complaints and have to say that a lot of the negative comments we read about were terribly unjustified in our experience of the Imperial.

Room Tip: Room 112 is a fantastic family room.

I've stayed at The Imperial on many occasions and would not hesitate to recommend it.

We went as two couples as our ladies were attending The Osmonds Concert. Imagine their surprise when they found they were staying in the same hotel.

Great Hotel, Great character, Great Staff, Great Value.

We will definitely be back.

We booked an overnight stay selecting a deluxe room with a sea view. The hotel is well placed on the promenade in Blackpool. Check in was ok but the room was disappointing, The sea view was through two small windows and for a double bed we had two single beds pushed together. The bathroom was very small, with a toilet squeezed into the corner and a very small bath. We had a drink in the bar. The bar was very brightly lit and fairly ordinary. Breakfast was the highlight, we had a nice table overlooking the sea and the decor and atmosphere was very nice indeed.All the food was buffet style and then quality of the food was very good. Overall the experience was ok but the B&B price was very expensive and we expected more for the high price paid

Having stayed here 2 years ago, we found this time that there was a much warmer welcome with all staff smiling, with simpe things like morning how are you? etc.
The room was large clean comfortable lots of hot water, a lightbulb was replaced instantly. The leasure centre now offers free towels.
The resturant staff were very accomidating, and the food was of very high standard for the price.

I stayed at this hotel with a friend over Easter and really enjoyed my stay. The Twin Room was very nice and spacious and we had a great seaview. The Breakfast had lots of choice and the staff in the restaurant were very friendly and welcoming. I would definetly stay here again as an onsite car park is also a bonus.

Room Tip: Request a seaview
