      Hotel was a disgrace, fire alarm went off about 6 times on Saturday night and also the gas went off at 7 A.m in the morning setting the fire alarm off again. Will never stay here again!!!!!

      Location and staff were very nice.

      Room was far too hot, very noisy at the back of the hotel where we were situated. Had to have window open while sleeping because of the heat. Hotel needs to be updated. Breakfast was extremely poor

      The staff were very helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the offer of an ice-bucket from the bar. The breakfast wasn't fancy, but we enjoyed all the choices and especially that it was offered until 11:00 a.m. The room had great windows that blocked the street noise and the room was spacious. Great stay!

      Medium sized functional room, perfect bed, away from streetnoise and only 3 minutes to a dart trainstation. Exactly what a cityhotel shall be.

    • Couple

      Very central to everything. Our room was large, spacious and very clean.

      There can be alot of noise from about 1-3:30am with revellers coming out of nearby pubs and clubs. It didn't really affect us, but not the place to stay if you want a quiet weekend away.

      Location. Room was lovely and clean. Good value for money. would return.

      They could do something about the toilets off the bar. Although they were clean there was a terrible smell.

      Was a great stay at the imperial hotel never a fault with the hotel the staff especially the lady at reception leona,i believe her name was, was more then helpful when we checked in and is an asset to the hotel. Lovely stay and would highly recommend the hotel to friends.

      Could not find any problems with the hotel maybe some staff were understressed(barstaff) due to the busy weekend but it is understandable in the hospility industry.

      Very convenient !

      We had asked for a Double Room and Single Room but ended up getting three single beds.

      its location

      The cleaning staff tried to check the room at 1040 and I was afraid they would walk in on me. I don't know why they couldn't simply check who had checked out before attempting to clean

      location was brilliant. just located at the top of Eyre square beside shop street. walking distance for shops bars and restaurants. althought we didnt eat in the hotel the menu was very good and it was very busy. room was very clean and cosy. i would definatly recommend it.

      I found the staff at reception very unfriendly and unhelpful when we checked in.

    • Family with children

      Overall nice accomadations. However all three rooms were not clean. Even my 20 something's who frequently stay at hostels commented that he rooms were not very clean. Easy fix by the management to make this a great place to stay.
