We stayed at the Imperial for one night over the bank holday. On arriving there was nowhere to stop to get the bags out of the car to check in. After driving round the block and up and down the promenade for a while, I managed to stop on some double yellow lines nearby just to get the bags out. When I asked one of the staff members they said that I could either keep looking for a space or double park in the car park as it only had 20 spaces or so and was full. When I actually tried to get into the car park, they had parked a car in the entrace to stop people double parking! We checked in and then drove round the town for a while before finally getting a space.
I thought that I might be able to get somewhere nearer later on, but it looks like all the surrounding roads are full of hotel guests cars, as the cars were still there in the morning.
The room was ok. It was a bit small and had a desk, two chairs and a table crammed in that weren't really needed. We did have a balcony, but it only had one outside chair on it!
There was a wedding on that night. About 20 or so of the wedding guests seemed to be permanently smoking right outside the front door, so we had to dodge through a cloud of smoke going in or out of the hotel. This also made the reception smell like an ashtray.
We ate in the bar that evening and the food was quite good. Breakfast was good too.
All in all, the parking was a nightmare and I think we paid about £80 too much for the room. There's plenty of choice in LLandundo and we made the mistake of thinking that paying a high price for a hotel would get us a decent nights stay.
