I've been visiting The Hythe Imperial off and on over the years, but had found recent visits disappointing. Decor tired and food not so good. However, for the meal I found that it appears to have had a refurb and the meal was very good. Service was good too. Glad to see it making a come back.

We stayed 2 nights at the Hythe Imperial do walk some sections of the coastal path. On arrival we were upgraded to a larger room, on the ground floor overlooking the car park. The hotel is right on the sea front, about half a mile from the main town centre. The room was comfortable, with a decent bathroom, but only...

Stayed again on Friday for a bit of pampering. Again we got a lovely upgraded room on the 2nd Floor with a sea view. The pool and spa are lovely, the treatment I had by Ella was fantastic and just what was needed. We had tapas and champagne in the champagne bar (using a groupon voucher) wasn't treated any differently...

Had a lovely weekend, with our 3 sons for my husbands Birthday. We have stayed here 4 times. The kids love the pool and close proximity to the beach. The refurbished family rooms are gorgeous and the sea view this time, topped it off. The staff here are excellent and cannot do enough for you. One of the restaurant staff...

This hotel is a beautiful gem overlooking the sea and formal gardens in Hythe. It has undergone a programme of refurbishment, which is almost at an end. We stayed here on an overnight to France and had booked through an agency, on arrival the receptionist advised us we had been given an upgrade to the standard room which we had...

Booked through an external booking site and difficulties encountered during booking in for our one night stay. The room was described as a standard room, it was clean comfortable and overlooked the lovely formal garden which I should imagine is beautiful in the summer. Had the set meal at the restaurant which we can highly recommend and the service was...

Spent two days at The Imperial at special rate and had excellent service. Had set meal on one night which was very good. A very good choice for breakfast. Refurbishments did not cause any problems. Would recommend upgraded rooms.

This booking was made back in November 2016 when the hotel was running an offer with reduced rate rooms. At the booking stage you are offered extras at a reduced rate which if taken makes a complete afternoon and evening. There was a lot of confusion with my booking which led to a number of phone calls, emails and trips...
