Staff were very friendly. Room was spacious and clean but the access to WIFI wasn't working. No phone in the room to ask for help except to go downstairs to the noisy pub. Again, very loud music until after midnight so try to avoid staying on nights(Fridays and Saturdays maybe) when there is a party downstairs in the pub. Other... More

This hotel was clean and had tea, coffee and milk, but no microwave, cutlery or crockery. The bistro downstairs was very pricey. The toilets were very clean but separate to the rooms. Ok for a quick stay passing through, but rooms had no bed lamps, bed tables or anything to give them ambience.

Stayed at this place, rooms are extremely small, dark, barely fitting two beds, toilets and showers were combined but were quite dirty, the room did not have tv. Pub downstairs is ok with good atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel is conveniently located on the main highway and at the Main Street with restaurants.

We stopped in after a long day on the road. All the staff were really friendly and accommodating, and the meals were delicious. Large portion sizes, a variety or specials, great garlic bread, and tasty desserts. We were surprised the place wasn't overflowing with customers - didn't have to wait long and left very happy. Thanks to Carl the bartender... More

For a small town Cowra still supports a lot of Pubs & Clubs. Sometimes you should check out pubs more for coffee, town history and characters than beer. I was pleased that the Impy had some different beers on tap- other than Tooheys etc. Super clean, great beer garden and quiet... pub closed early but that was OK!

Our overall experience of the Imperial Hotel was Terrible. Although the rooms were neat clean and tidy thats where it ends. Upon arrival the bar staff were very helpful, efficient and knowledgable, I have to give both the ladies behind the bar the credit for that, I specifically asked one of them if we needed to book a table to...

His conduct was out of character but does not excuse his manner. He has been addressed by us & he would like to... More

For a country pub the Imperial Hotel had a nice relaxed atmosphere. It was more modern than some of the other country pubs we've eaten in. The food was expensive and not great quality but the staff were very friendly. I didn't see the accommodation but in terms of a relaxed place to get a drink and/or snacks I would... More

The beer was cold which is very important on a hot day in January. The wine list contained several local drops which is what you expect. Pity about our meals. The lamb cutlets were overcooked; I suspect they were microwaved given the speed at which our meal arrived. And was accompanied by what must have been frozen veges; inexcusable in... More

We stayed overnight with our 3 children in an ensuited family room (room 9). The room was a little small but very clean and adequate. The staff were welcoming. The meals were expensive and only of average quality. Although we were at the front and directly above the bar, our room had no noise (it was a Saturday night). Overall... More
