My wife and I had a really enjoyable short break at the Imperial. The hotel location was ideal from our point of view - just about as far as you can get from St Peter Port. The bus stop was just across the road which meant for a pound each we could travel all over the island. Actually our travel was free because the hotel gave us a travel card with 18 journeys already prepaid. They also said that if it ran out, buy another £25 credit and they would refund us.
Our room (No. 4) was right at the front of the hotel overlooking Roquaine Bay and had been recently completely renovated as had the bathroom. It had a walk in shower with plenty of room to swing the proverbial cat. There was no bath but that didn't cause us any problems. One big difference from most of the chain hotels - we got clean towels every day.
Breakfast was always freshly cooked and offered a wide range. We had a half-board deal and the evening meals were excellent. Service was superb and left us with the feeling that all the staff had been well trained in the art of restaurant service.
If you are looking for a quiet time with excellent opportunities for walking, this is the hotel for you.
Although nothing to do with the hotel, be aware that taxi companies aren't too happy coming out from town as it means an unpaid journey of around 8 miles for them. We needed a taxi to get us to the airport on Sunday morning as the buses don't start until later. The hotel advised us to book one at least a week in advance (we did) but it was clear the driver wasn't too happy!
