Out & About


Exmouth is a special destination on the Devonshire coastline, popular with holidaymakers dating back to the Regency period. Today it's just as well-loved, thanks to its wonderful scenery and plethora of seaside attractions. From the hotel you can enjoy the beach and dunes or a relaxing early evening stroll along the promenade as the sun sets.

Head a little further afield and you can experience the myriad delights of the scenic Jurassic Coast. Bicton Gardens, historic Powderham Castle and the fascinating House of Marbles are just a few of the other splendid attractions nearby, all well worth a visit.

What some of our guests have to say…

Customer Rating:

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel & we both wanted to say what a wonderful time we had. The room (122) was clean & well maintained with a wonderful view of the sea front. The hotel was centrally located so was ideal for all that Exmouth had to offer. The staff were friendly & very helpful. The menu was varied & delicious. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends & family & we will be returning again. Thank you very much.

Just returned from a great stay at the Imperial Hotel the best food we have ever had at a Coast and Country Hotel. Hotel very nice and the staff great one hotel to return to.

Jean Shumer Harlow, Essex
Customer Rating:

We booked a 4 night stay at the Imperial; it was a late booking so there was no sea facing rooms left. It was our first time with Coast and Country and we really enjoyed ourselves, our room was clean but a bit dated the dining room and bar area very nice. The staff are very pleasant nothing to much trouble for them.The entertainment very poor, the food could have been better one night we eat out because there was nothing on the menu I liked but the location is excellent.
