The rooms at the Imperial are basic, functional affairs and won't be winning any design or innovation awards soon. They are however clean and correct and perhaps most importantly quiet as they are slightly back from the seafront. The standard room, which it must be must is of a generous size, is decorated in a typical English style with a blue patterned carpet, striped floral curtains and the kind of wallpaper you'd expect to see in Hyacinth Bucket's living room. The furniture consists of sturdy dark wood bedside tables and lamps, a desk with drawer unit beneath and a wardrobe in the same material. Amenities include a flatscreen television with 80 freeview channels, telephone, tea and coffee facilities and trouser press. The bathroom, all in white, is equally basic and a little rough around the edges. It has a bathtub, hairdryer and toiletries come in unclassy sachets. Single rooms (a little smaller) and triple rooms (roughly the same size) have the same amenities and are decorated and appointed similarly. The executive double rooms are a little more comfortable due to extras such as the four-poster bed, larger television, seating area and enhanced bathroom featuring a sunken tub, modern vanity and backlit mirror. Being a listed building, the hotel has not been able to install air conditioning in its rooms although fans are available if needed.
