The apartment features a spacious lounge area with lovely views out to sea and across the beach. Two bedrooms are also on the ground floor. Head down the stair case into the basement you will find the kitchen, and an additional bedroom. The basement does benefit from some natural light from small windows contained within.

Great StayImperial House is in a wonderful location, with marvellous views to the Castle. We were using public transport and the bus stop was within a 5 minute walk - the Bus Vannin Go Saver or Go Explore card is worth buying if you intend to use buses and trains to get around. The supermarket is also close by. We did a mixture of self catering and eating out. The kitchen is very well equipped. The kitchen ceiling beams might be a problem for those 6ft+ but we were fine. The house is comfortable and was lovely to return to after a day's walking. As well as good walking, there is also a lot to see and visit on the island. Our hosts, Chris and Jean had kindly left a starter kit of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, bread etc for our arrival which was very welcome after our day's travel. They were helpful and informative about the island, places to visit and places to eat. One highlight was Chris's magic tricks which he performed for us one evening. Very slick and great fun!

A perfect location for town, beach, castle, sunsets and ice cream.The house is located right on the promenade. It is well-appointed, bright and cheerful, the only slight drawback (hence the 4 for comfort above) is the low ceiling height in the kitchen if you are over 6' 2" tall. The owners were friendly and helpful, including returning something we had left behind.

Great place to stayWe had a wonderful break at Imperial House recently. Jean and Chris were amazing hosts and made us all feel very welcome. My grandchildren loved Chris's magic show! The location is perfect, just a few steps to the beach with amazing views from the ground floor windows. There is a pub/restaurant right next door which is very convenient, but a bit noisy at weekends.

A trip to the beachExcellent location. Parking with the property which is a luxury in Peel. A shirt stroll to the supermarkets that kept us fully supplied all week. The best bit - we were on the promenade and able to sit and watch the sea and the activities on the promenade.

EasterLovely location. First in for the season and house was slightly cold/damp downstairs. However, the amenities and hospitality of the owners made up for it.

Family holidayThe house is situated on Peel promenade with great access to a sandy beach. The bedrooms were large and plenty of hanging space. The views from the front windows in the living room have to be seen to be appreciated. Close to all amenities including the pub 20 steps door to door. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Really enjoyed the stay and would definitely return.

Loved itChris & Jean are lovely. So accommodating & welcoming without being overbearing. Of course, Cookies performance was the the stuff of legend! Many thanks for the show. Only negative of the house is that the kitchen is downstairs with a low ceiling & beams, so if you are 6ft & want to do a lot of cooking, there is definite danger of bumping your head. We managed OK. We had a great time riding the very many trains on the island & the beach was great. We even ventured in to the sea & survived. Just wish we could have stayed longer. I'm sure we'll be back.

A most magical time in wonderful Peel!It was a really wonderful time, getting together with friends who joined me in Imperial House for a holiday. We loved the place! Its perfectly situated, beautifully furnished and every room is lovingly decorated and equipped with everything one needs for a relaxing stay. Ive been staying in Peel several times before - but this was the best in accommodation and hospitality I have ever experienced. I felt like I was staying with friends. Chris and Jean are wonderful hosts. Chris entertained us with his magic and Jean was so lovely and attentive. Highly recommended!

Feels like staying with familyChris and Jean are wonderful hosts. They were very attentive to any needs we had. They were friendly and helped us if needed. The view was beautiful, a clear view of the sea and the castle. There are many restaurants and stores around that are easy to get to. The house is comfortable.

A wonderful holiday by the beach. Excellent hostsWe stayed at the Imperial House with our 7 year old son in April. The property, which had been recently decorated, is located in Peel, right by the beach. There is plenty of space for a family with kids to stay, or a group of friends. 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor and 1 in the basement. All beds are extremely comfortable. Everywhere was spotless. There are a few nice restaurants in Peel, but if you prefer to cook yourself, the kitchen has everything you need to make any meal. The hosts, who live upstairs, in their own apartment, are wonderful people. It's worth mentioning, that they are magicians and were very kind to give our son a private magic show!! It was a very special treat that our son won't forget! We had an amazing time!
