Stayed at this hotel with 5 other couples everyone commented on the rudeness of the receptionist on arrival. The rooms were okay, however the bed and the pillows were dreadful, hard mattress and very uncomfortable. I would not recommend this place mainly due to the arrogance the receptionist she needs a lesson in hospitality, shame I did not get her... More

Handy location to shops and located at rear of Imperial Hotel. Sleeping on floor would have been just as comfortable as sleeping on bed. Matress was just too hard. Motel was clean, but way overpriced. Breakfasts were not available.

Good pub and hotel out the back - decided to stay the night and was okay. Clean and comfortable! Couldn't ask for much more for a 1 night stay. Make sure you request a room away from the pub as it can be noisy till late on the weekend as we found out.. Thanks team!

We have stayed at the Imperial twice now on our way up and down the Hume. And we will continue to return. I travel as one parent with children and safety and clean, allergen free, new rooms are a priority for me. I feel safe here, even though it is connected to a Hotel Bar, not seen any disturbances on... More

Good- Family rooms are very large and comfortable, very tidy and well presented. Bathroom was clean and huge. Aircon was great. Bad- Beds and pillows were uncomfortable and kitchen facilities were minimal, kettle, bar fridge and toaster were provided but only two plates and two glasses which was inadequate for a room that sleeps 5 people. I would recommend this... More

We booked in the Imperial Motel for 4 nights as we were down there for a wedding and we thought we would make a holiday out of our travel to Bowral. The Hotel is close to town and many nice restaurants and cafes. The Hotel is clean, tidy and has a bar fridge and a kettle and a small supply... More

We spent two nights at the Imperial Motel and while the rooms were clean and well looked after we found that the area was very noisy, especially when people were leaving the hotel. Some of the language was very unpleasant. Bowral is a wonderful place to visit, with lots to look at and many very pleasant walks. We would probably... More

Very spacious and thoroughly clean rooms, the bed was only average though and the pillows were like tissue paper, having two didn't even cut it. The pub is very nice, two different bars and restaurants with the back bar family friendly, plenty of good beers on tap too. The grey haired lady in reception has absolutely no people skills, has...

It's a really cold day but the room is bright, modern and welcoming. There is a large couch and a table. It's not usual for a motel to provide a toaster and plate so thank you. It's great to have two restaurants attached - one a pizza/pasta and the other full service.

Had to visit Bowral recently and stay the night. We wanted something central so tried the Imperial. The accommodation was actually fine. Pretty rudimentary but clean and new. Kids enjoyed being in the same room until the snoring started...
