    Good

    Good central location, interesting colonial building. Secure parking. Room was a good size, nicely decorated, clean and well made-up.

    Mattress needs to be replaced urgently, sagging in the middle! This is really not acceptable. Air conditioning was rather noisy. Bathroom could do with more shelves/surfaces - there is nowhere to place your toiletries, which is irritating.

    They say the Imperial is as old as Pietersmaritzberg itself, and it is a lovely property with a heritage feel - sketches / paintings of Prince Napoleon (nephew of the big man) who lived and died in the region, and a lovely old French wall clock in the lobby, and yet the rooms have been refurbished with all modern amenities - thus also providing all modern comforts. It is right in the centre of downtown of this little town and is very convenient especially for business with the Kwazulu Natal administration. The staff are friendly and helpful.

    Food could be spruced up a bit.

    Price for breakfast too high compared to room rate abd dinner prices.

    Exceptional

    My reservation through Booked.net hadn't been received by the hotel when I checked in causing a lengthy confustion. This was a time span of about an hour and a half from when I booked online and arrived at the airport.

    No wifi in room

    The old style of the hotel.

    The sound of the road bassing by all the night. The very poor welcome and service at the restaurant for dinner.
