From the minute I arrived, I was made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The room I had was lovely and had a nice view of the town. The food was beautifully cooked every time from breakfast through to dinner, with plenty of options to choose from every day. A special mention though has to go too the bar staff, particularly Jodie who was a delight to speak too over the few days I was at the hotel and I was always met with a smile and asked how I was. It's obvious how hard she works and cares about the job, whether I stay at the Imperial next time I'm in Llandudno or not, I'll be sure to pop in and say hello to the team and person who made me feel so welcome and made such a difference to my holiday. The bar manager Gemma has a great team and should be very proud of the effort she puts in, as it hasn't gone unnoticed. See you all soon! James Harvey.

Excellent hotel. The hotel was incredibly clean in fact spotless. The reception staff were very helpful. The parking ground is inadequate for such a large hotel but the staff were helpful in suggesting we parked on the promenade. The room was clean and tidy. Space was used well. The bathroom was beautifully fitted with a very good shower and very clean. We were able to use 2 lifts, which was helpful as we were on the top floor. Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. Cooked breakfast was very varied. You could have smoked salmon smoked haddock and omelette, if you wanted. You could sit in the conservatory overlooking the beach. A very pleasant atmosphere.

Looking up at the Great Orme from Llandudno Pier it’s easy to see why early Viking sailors named the headland after a huge sea serpent. But standing at the summit, 207m above sea level, on a cold and blustery November morning, my thoughts are focused less on giant sea snakes and more on the Great Orme mountain goats who are staring at me in disbelief. What on earth is a human doing up here at this time of year? In Llandudno for a late autumn break, I was determined on the second day to climb the Orme. I had last done it 60 years ago and this seemed as good a moment as any to return. I’m glad I did. Magnificent views across to Snowdonia and Anglesey in one direction and towards Conwy and Tal y Fan in the other made it well worth the effort. Walking back to the North Shore, down steep goat tracks in some places, was tougher than struggling up but the prospect of coffee and Welsh shortbread on the seafront veranda of The Imperial hotel spurred me on. The Imperial dates back to 1872 and is one of Llandudno’s oldest hotels. In my view it is also one of its finest. From the moment I checked in with Nicola’s cheerful team at Reception to the morning I left, I knew I had found something special, a hotel which appreciates that comfort and style are as important as fine food . . . the sort of place which offers levels of service that some hotels nowadays no longer seem to consider important. My ensuite bedroom was at the side of the hotel but still enjoyed sea views and being classified ‘superior’ it was big, as in it took several strides to reach the far end. There was an ironing board, a hair drier for those who still have hair, a leather sofa to recover from mountain treks, a dining table and chairs, posh toiletries, and smart carpets and curtains kept immaculate by the housekeeping team. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the quality TV which worked without having to call for help . . . not something that can be said of every hotel I’ve visited. But you get the idea. This was home from home, only better. For breakfast I moved from the conventional menu to what, for me, was something different. Having been presented in other hotels with apologies for kippers (tinned and filleted, that sort of thing) I decided to try The Imperial’s. Here my two kippers arrived plump, grilled to perfection and packed with flavour. What a start to the day! Table service from professionals like Agnes, Matt, Eduardo and Jordan added to the pleasure. They smiled, they offered menu advice where needed and they responded to requests with speed. Each evening, Executive Chef Leighton delivered memorable dinners. If you are on half board, there is an allowance of £33, enough for three courses. My choice on the first evening of a creamed goat’s cheese starter and salt-baked root vegetables whetted the appetite nicely and the mains of roast beef or baked salmon satisfied the biggest appetite. The beef was tender and my request for horseradish sauce was met without fuss. Of the desserts, I recommend the sticky toffee pud but I made my way through other choices during my stay and none disappointed. The wine list was extensive, with a large glass of decent Malbec coming in at £7.25. Hotel facilities include a gym and a swimming pool that wasn’t much smaller than the one in my club at home. It is about 18m in length and a metre deep, with a good-sized jacuzzi alongside. Bedroom bathrobes meant that I could change in my room and by phoning down to reserve a time slot I shared the pool with never more than two others. I understand that the manager, Geoff Lighthouse, has been at the hotel for decades and I reckon this accounts for The Imperial’s success - loyalty and commitment at the top inspire high standards at all levels. Well done to the entire team! Llandudno is one of my favourite seaside resorts and take my word for it, The Imperial adds enormously to its splendour.

We've actually stayed here a couple of times over the last few years. Usually for just one or two nights. The interior of the rooms probably won't dazzle you. They decor and furniture IS a little dated, but everything's clean and the rooms are quite spacious. If you can secure a sea-view room, then you'll be guaranteed a great view. Location wise, Imperial is well placed for a walk into town, down to the pier or up to the top of the Great Orme if you're feeling fit. Sounds great right? Well it is. I like this hotel. I like staying here. The staff are generally friendly and helpful. I suspect some of our issues may have been partly down to the pandemic situation. On arrival on one of the occasions we were offered an afternoon cream tea voucher. When we went to claim this perk, the restaurant were reluctant to serve us. It was still within the normal operating hours of the restaurant for afternoon tea, but the time when it stopped was in around 30 minutes. We essentially couldn't get it then and the manager or manageress who came to speak to us about the mix up didn't seem entirely sympathetic - even though the lady on the front desk had suggested we could go through. I suspect this was down to miscommunication, staffing issues or a combination. At the time when we visited they were sensible limiting the pool to one family at a time. The 30 minute slots were a little bit confining, but I think it was better to be safe. Breakfast, rather than being a buffet as usual was table-service thanks to the pandemic. This wasn't a problem though, and I thought it was a sensible measure to reduce infection rates. I really enjoyed the breakfast. One day I had the full welsh and the other I had kippers. Both were excellent. One issue with the hotel which is hard to fix, is the lack of parking. There IS a carpark at the back, but there's no means of reserving a space and nowhere near enough spaces for the number of guests. There are places to park in Llandudno but at certain times Llandudno can get VERY busy. If you're going at peak times I'd think seriously about where you're going to leave your car. Overall, we've had a good time every time we've stayed here. But I understand there might be issues which fussier people could be bothered by. I feel like TripAdvisor really needs a more granular rating system. I feel like the three I'm giving is a little harsh, but a four would seem a tad generous? I enjoyed it, I'll stay again and you never know I might even be back to amend my review.

We stayed here with friends. Unfortunately I found the bedroom to be really dated. The carpet in our bedroom was frayed. The main hotel - reception, bar and restaurant seem to have been re-decorated but they've forgotten the upstairs! Having said that - it was a lovely night's sleep as the bed was really comfy! We had also booked a table for our evening mesl whuch was lovely.
