Everything. Right where you need it.

Nestled in the majestic glory of Thames, at the Imperial Hotel, you’ll enjoy the hustle bustle of the biggest town on the Coromandel. Bringing you over one century of exceptional service, the Imperial Hotel was established in 1900 and has since moved from its original location to the opposite corner where it exists to serve all your vacation needs.
