Imperial Hotel

With fantastic views over the long sandy beaches of Great Yarmouth, the Imperial Hotel is everything you would expect from a four-star, Victorian-era seaside hotel. We stayed in the Villa Maria themed room which also boasts a balcony from which to see the sights.

The hotel also contains Café Cru; a fine dining experience that, while expensive, is of fantastic quality and service.
