We always get drawn back to The Empire, it is such a wonderful, welcoming hotel..always friendly, never stuffy. The service is amazing with staff always willing to go the extra mile to make your stay special. If you love good food, get yourself booked in..the meals are truly out of this world. There is always a lovely atmosphere that makes you want to stay for longer. The Empire never disappoints, we just love it.

This is the second time we've stayed at the Empire, the first time being 15 years ago. We stayed on a Thursday night on the bed, dinner and breakfast special which was a lovely treat. The dinner was four courses but I couldn't have the soup as I cannot eat cream and they didn't offer an alternative. The meal was very nice but didn't taste like the superb food we had originally all those years ago. The service was excellent (it appears that most of the staff including the kitchen are Polish). Very hardworking and keen to ensure you enjoyed your stay. There was no waiting for anything, it was rather quickly served and I felt a little rushed. I would have liked more time between the courses. The wine was pricey at £17 for the cheapest bottle. That said the meal was very pleasant and followed by tea/coffee in the lounge. The room was comfortable and the decor was generally very good throughout. Although we didn't use the gym/indoor pool, the equipment was top notch. The shower didn't warm up for me in the morning so had to have a small bath as it took ages to fill the tub and then it worked fine for my husband(!) so that wasn't good. The breakfast again was very nice, individually cooked but to be honest, I have had better breakfasts are hotels around the country which are buffet based. The hash brown was soggy and the sausage was burned. Wasn't much either, one rasher of bacon, one sausage and a small amount of scrambled egg. Tea was served in a very heavy beautiful silver teapot. I think this hotel still has charm and elegance and the service is very good, but the quality of food isn't there any longer to justify the price. If I had paid for the meal and the wine, I think I might have been disappointed.

In a world where often mediocrity strains, the Empire holds strong, a position revered I am sure
It is the whole experience from the moment one sets foot inside the front door
Beautiful hotel, beautifully warm swimming pool which feels like having a dip in the Med
Rooms are quaintly furnished and well proportioned and comfortable with clean fresh en-suite facilities
The breakfast is plentiful and tasty and should not be missed
Do dine in the Watkins & Co hotel restaurant for the 5 course dinner as we did
It is well worth it and you can accompany your meal with a decent bottle of wine from an extensive list
What makes your stay besides the hotel, it is the people, every person you meet whilst in the hotel
Car parking available as too is free wifi
Always a warm welcome
Thank you

Room Tip: Book early
