This hotel is excellent, the room was recently refurbished so could not fault it. It was so clean and had everything you could ask for. All of the staff are so friendly and helpful and made our stay very special. The food was amazing and we were looked after throughout. Will definitely be going back.

After having a light lunch of the chef's delicious apple and parsnip soup, we checked in for our overnight stay. We received a warm, friendly greeting and settled into the room, chilling with the bottle of sparkling wine and a few chocolates, with compliments from the hotel. The evening was a great success, having enjoyed fabulous food, wine, champagne and...

Yet another fabulous Valentines weekend, great location, the food was fabulous,the staff and management are just wonderful and so friendly, the fillet steak we had on the Saturday night was the best piece of steak we have ever had, even if you don't stay at the Hotel it's still worth going to the Hotel to eat in the Restaurant.

For the 21st year the Triumph Stag Owners Club spent a lovely weekend at the Imperial. As co-organiser, I have since received only praise from the vast majority of our 60-strong group - impressive. Aside from a handful of very minor food-related issues (inevitable in such a large group), praise was unanimous for our evening meals & breakfasts & especially...

We visited this hotel in low season and it appeared that most of Great Yarmouth had closed down. I was a bit apprehensive when we turned up and saw the "Imperial Hotel" sign on the front - it is a bit old and dated. However, the inside of the hotel was clean, modern and almost boutique in style. The receptionist...

Thank you so much for the lovely 5 star review and I am thrilled that the inside was better than you were expecting from the outside!!The hotel was built in 1898 and so it is hard to make it look modern but it does have character!! so glad that service food and everything else was perfect!

We have just returned from a week at a hotel that would be hard to beat any where. From start to finish every one was friendly, polite could not do enough for us. We took along our little dog and he was spoilt by all. The meals were well presented and enough on the plate to satisfy the biggest appetite...
