The AA Awards are the most prestigious national awards, with the Hotel of

to collect the Award from the ceremony host, television presenter and broadcaster Penny Smith, in front of an audience of 800 members of the hospitality industry and said; “It is a huge honour to receive this Award.
The Imperial Hotel prides itself on its reputation for outstanding service and this Award recognises and rewards the hotel’s outstanding quality, exceptional comfort and hospitality as the best in the serviced accommodation sector in Wales.”
