"I’ve travelled extensively in my work over the last 30 years and have lost count of the number of hotels I’ve stayed in. 

I can’t recall a stay I’ve enjoyed more than the one at your hotel. Marvellous staff, superb atmosphere, excellent food...I’ll definitely be back, possibly for my wedding anniversary. 

Great stuff, keep it up!"

"We stayed there for two nights over a busy weekend. The whole experience was flawless. It was by far one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at, had a real touch of class.  

The staff couldn’t have been any more helpful if they tried. They made it an unbelievably relaxing weekend. I went to relax for a few days after a procedure on my back and couldn’t make it down for lunch one of the days. We called down to the restaurant and even though it was after three they managed to bring up some soup and sandwiches. 

Keep doing what you're doing!"

Noelle Hogan


"It was fabulous day! Stunning, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank you so much you were a pleasure to deal with, especially Lynda, Chris, Jim and Mithu who looked after us so well on the day.

The food, service etc was impeccable.  Would recommend everyone to get married in The Imperial."
