Booked for a weekend For work in winter gardens Blackpool with a 7.30 am start. Check in was we where promised a grab and go breakfast - No sign of it or anyone to help. Dining room staff too busy putting music on rather than dealing with my problems Heating for one night and day only - frozen all the other times Resorted to a 4.30am Hot Bath,outdoor clothes and coat on to keep warm in the room. Positive? Missed Breakfast was replaced with a free supper , small oil filled radiator to warm room- took to long to get warm. No good whilst I’m out working. Will be looking for an alternative for our regular visits to Blackpool For work

I have been here a few times now and am happy and confident to book time and time again. The rooms are good quality, housekeeping excellent, food good and general atmosphere good too. Breakfast (usually poor in most hotels) is good and the bar is not too pricey. Good parking too.

We arrived on spec to see if we could get a room for a 2 night stay in October and phoned the hotel's reservations team to see if they would match a comparison site price, which they did. However, the booking got lost somewhere between the reservations team and the hotel reception when we tried to check in a short while later. Meg went in person to reservations and sorted it out for us and arranged some complimentary treats which were really appreciated. Had a lovely stay in a standard double with breakfast (very good hot and cold options served as a help yourself buffet). All the staff are very friendly and we would definitely recommend this hotel.

I would be very happy to recommend the Imperial to anyone considering a visit to Blackpool. We booked a family room and another with a sea view - both were very clean and comfortable. We stayed on a DBB basis and the variety/quality of food on offer was excellent as was the level of service we received throughout. Without exception the staff were absolute stars. All in all a great value for money stay and we will definitely return

I have stayed here many times over the years and have always been happy to return and also recommend this hotel. I only stayed two nights this time to see the illuminations and once again my room was spacious comfy and clean with everything I needed. Breakfast and dinner in the evening were both excellent as usual with plenty of choice I was impressed with the layout for the self service breakfast making it as safe as possible with the majority of people wearing masks as they moved about. I did miss the balconied dining room though hopefully next time I visit refurbishment will be complete.
