The Imperial Hotel is one of the Shearings Group hotels and is great value for money. Our room was comfortable and quiet, the staff obliging and friendly, and the food excellent. We enjoyed the sea views from the smart lounge and terrace and admired the unexpectedly grand neo-classical dining room. Don’t be put off by the rather tired and institutional rear façade that greets you on arrival - it is better inside. The hotel is set back from the quiet coast road and surrounded by pretty grounds. One word of warning - in the Spring half-term week the adjacent public gardens hold the Exmouth Music Festival with almost continuous loud pop music from midday to 10pm from the Saturday to the following Friday. We initially had a room facing the public gardens and the noise was quite intrusive. However when we asked for a quieter room on the other side of the hotel the manager quickly sorted this out for us.
Exmouth, with its excellent public transport links, boat trips and river ferries, is a great base for exploring the local countryside (our car stayed unmoved in the hotel car park for the duration of our break). Both the bus and train stations are only five minutes away, as is the town centre, and the nearby coastal and riverside paths are easily accessible. The spectacular rail track, recently repaired after the storms of 2013, from Exmouth to Newton Abbot offers some of the most beautiful estuary and cliff scenery to be seen from a train window and cost, with our Senior Railcards, £4 return each!
