Stayed for a family wedding last month. Had a lovely stay, enjoying the location and the impeccable staff service. Would recommend to anyone. Brilliant location and atmosphere. Perfect for wedding guests!

We only stayed for one night with friends but thought the location was perfect for the beach , bars and pier . Before we came I asked the reception for a recommendation on some bars and the email I got back from Aimee was really helpful . It was clear that she made a real effort to help and is an asset to the team . The room was very nice , massive bed and nice view. I thought the shower pressure wasn't really up to standard but for one night I was happy to live with that. After our night out we headed to the bar for a night cap and met Jon who again was someone that clearly enjoyed his work and the company of guests. Breakfast was brilliant although the order came out a little wrong but was soon put right. Staff again very friendly . I also thought the fact that checkout was a little flexible and relaxed meant we were not hurried to leave on the dot.
I thought the staff made the stay thoroughly enjoyable and the place lived up to my expectation .

My boyfriend and i stayed here for 2 nights. I must say i was very disapointed after reading reviews. The carpet as you arrive is quite dirty which made you think the whole place would be. It was all very mis matched really very dated and no warmth. Our room was not to what i would call 4 star standard and the bathroom had an horendous smell of stagnent water i assume there is a blocked drain somewhere? I did report this on our first day. The first mornings breakfast was quite sureal the supervisor did not crack a smile once, no chit chat, no nothing, really . My boyfriend asked for no fried bread and was told oh hell put it on just leave it! I asked for beans instead of tomatoes and didnt get them and had to ask. No attention to detail. However sunday morning breakfast was much better and staff at least smiled. No sleep sat evening due to revellers coming back early hours and having a dispute in our corridor. The pictures on the reception of the rooms is certainly nothing like the room we were in. I was actually very anoyed that i allowed myself to pay 245!! For 2 nights. Definately not value for money. Reception staff were helpful when approached but there was just no wow factor here at all. But thats just based on my personal experience. If we ever visit yarmouth again we will book a much cheaper bed and breakfast with much less expectation.

Five of us dined on a Saturday night in the "Café Cru" restaurant. Although busy, the service was excellent. The food was deemed GOOD or VERY GOOD by all. The best steak (rib eye) I've had in a long while.

We have just returned from a fantastic four days at this hotel. We had a sea view room and were delighted that we were able to bring our two border terriers with us on this special trip, so a big woof from them too! In addition to the excellent location, the on site car parking, comfortable accommodation and exquisite food & drink offered; we had booked a private event on the Terrace for 40 guests to celebrate the Mother-in-Law's 70th birthday dinner which was a stunning affair. The Owning couple made it extremely easy to make all the arrangements via email and no detail was overlooked. They were also on hand on the evening to welcome the guest of honour and ensure everything was in order. All the invited guests have commented that they had a great time, as did we, so a big thank you Imperial. Special mention to Paula the Hotel Manager and Janine the Duty Manager who really did make us feel very welcome before, during and after the event. You have a really great team Mr & Mrs Mobbs, they do you credit.

Only stayed here for one night en route to a boating holiday on The Broads, but very impressed. Great location approx 300m from the pier, right in the sea front with fantastic views over the beach & sea. At the quieter end of town which was great, but only a 5 minute stroll on the sea front to the town centre attractions.

Nice easy free car parking at the side of the hotel & a very friendly greeting from receptionist on arrival. We stayed in the Ruinalt room on the first floor - absolutely fantastic room, very up to date decor, great views of the sea from its balcony, & a lovely modern bathroom with an excellent large walk in shower. Nice big flat screen TV with hi-tech media centre with things like Internet, YouTube, BBC player etc on it. Proper fridge with fresh milk, bath robes, safe, iron etc - really well specd room!!!

All staff were really friendly & helpful. We ate in the Terrace Restaurant & food was great. Good quality food from an interesting menu served by knowledgable staff. Perhaps beer & wine prices slightly high, but given we were only paying £100 B&B tariff for a sea view balcony room view in a well appointed 4 star hotel, perhaps I can forgive them this.

Overall a really enjoyable experience.
