Beautiful hotel let down by dated infrastructure

Posted 08-May-2016
This is a beautiful hotel , we had superior rooms which were spacious, very clean and comfortable. However my room was directly above the function suite so we had very loud thumping music until 11.15x. I have been in hotels with noise but this was like somebody has a loud disco next door. I spoke to the manager at 11 pm (by this time my 7 year old daughter was crying because she was so tired and was assured it was stopping soon. It was obvious when I talked to them that they knew this was a noisy room but had used it anyway. They did move us the next night and were helpful and apologetic. We also ordered some bar food which took 1 hour to come ( one of these a basic sandwich. Again an apology and a reduction in the bill but I still had restless hungry children. My advice is stay here but don't eat here and check your room. Do not get 128!

just one criticism the car barrier when coming into the hotel had no warning signs on the barrier to say don't walk underneath them when car is coming through.

Pleasant stay in Blackpool.

We had a great stay in a great hotel with wonderful staff. A couple of small details in the bathroom spoiled the overall effect: the extractor fan wasn't working and the toilet flush was temperamental. Other than that an excellent room in an excellent hotel. Check-in and check-out was fast and friendly. Would stay again.

Imperial grandeur - shame about the check-in

Posted 15-Apr-2016 on Hotels
Recently spent one night at the Imperial as we had tickets for the RSC at Blackpool Grand Theatre. The hotel is well placed within walking distance of the main town but far enough out to be away from Blackpool's nightlife. Enjoyed the hotel and the wonderful sea views - however the hotel needs to review its checking-in procedures. Check-in is supposed to be 3pm but we ended up sitting around in the foyer until 4pm before our room was ready - there was a conference on but that is surely usual in a big hotel. The reception staff were doing their best and remained calm and professional but it was a bad start to our stay.
