Christmas & New Year 2020 at Imperial Hotel
Join us for one of our very special breaks over Christmas or New Year 2020. Places on both breaks are limited to just 60 guests to ensure that everyone has enough space to really relax over the festive season.
We are delighted to be offering a Christmas break for the first time in a decade, hosted by our new Director, Grant. This is a fabulous opportunity to escape to the coast for Christmas, to our independent 4 star covid-secure hotel where you'll be made incredibly welcome.
Our New Year's Break, hosted by Nick & Aileen will look slightly different this year but will still be as merry as ever! Executive Chef Daniel and his team will be creating a delicious meal for our superb Black Tie Dinner on New Year's Eve, where we can all wave goodbye to 2020 and hope for a better 2021. And a Bucks Fizz Breakfast on New Year's Day will definitely set you up for the year ahead.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Imperial Hotel over the festive season.
