We were recommended this by the information centre. We had a room with bathroom. It is a basic NSW pub. Nothing special. It does have a bistro, but we ate out. We were in 8, and there was loud air handling unit or compressor that turned on and off all night. Don't stay in 8. Its on the main street.... More

Got a chance to stay here during the cowra wine show. All staff were really friendly and the new licensee stopped by and had a beer with us after checking in. Food was solid and the rooms were clean and tidy. Had a 1 piece band on after the wine show which kept the atmosphere kicking along nicely. No complaints... More

The bistro was recommended by the owner of the motel I was staying at. I was expecting the standard bistro fare, steak chips and salad etc. but was pleasantly surprised by the menu. Plenty of tasty options but I ended up going for the roast vegetable stack which was spot on. Cosy atmosphere and meals were prepared in a timely... More

This is a Bistro Review only so escape now if you are looking for a hotel stay review. On a recommendation from our host we chose to eat at the bistro at the Imperial Hotel during our stopover in Cowra. The atmosphere in the hotel was warm and friendly. We did strike trivia night as well, but that just added... More

A great pub, met the new owner and he is local and very keen to increase his numbers. Good news is he has reschs on tap. You wont find a nicer atmosphere anywhere and i have been to a lot of pubs. If you are looking for a clean friendly pub i highly recommend this one

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!
