Wonderful stay again at The Imperial Hotel. The room was so comfortable, spacious and clean.....it was a joy to relax in. We dined in the restaurant on the second evening of our stay and to be honest the meal surpassed all previous meals we had at the hotel. The steaks arrived beautifully trimmed and presented, clearly a chef into their...

We booked two rooms in the Imperial last week. The rooms were quite basic but considering the location, that wasn't an issue. The hotel seems to be very staffed, it took us over 20 minutes to check in. We had a reservation in a nearby restaurant and decided to have a drink beforehand in the bar but had to leave...

We enjoyed our stay at the Imperial Hotel on a recent trip to Ireland. It was great for our family of four. The hotel is beautiful and has several cute places to eat and drink on site (one bar, one cafe and one restaurant). The Pembroke restaurant offered a lot of variety for breakfast (we had a bed/breakfast reservation). The...

We stayed in the imperial for our third anniversary. I mentioned it when booking and when we arrived to our room they had left a lovely dessert for us along with an anniversary card. Such a lovely thought! We upgraded the spring package to a superior room and it was definitely worth it. Staff were so helpful and genuinely friendly....

The hotel is probably a bit past its prime, but for one night or two, it is adequate. The hotel has a nice location, but can become noisy at night depending on how your room is located, based on street/bar activity. The beds were not truly comfortable, the pillows I felt actually uncomfortable. Perhaps it was the grade of room...
