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...

A basic motel that ticks all the boxes. We stayed a night on our way to Echuca and also another night on our return home. The rooms are clean, very comfortable with good bed, good size bathroom, warm (it was 2 degrees outside) table with seating for two, lounge, luggage rack, and really good lighting which the lack of we...

Room was fine, bed was comfy. TV did not work, no shampoo. Receptionist wasn't exactly welcoming, she seemed to be going through the motions. Location is good, 5 minute walk into the heart of the CBD.

The pictures and first impression make this look like a reasonable motel at a reasonable price but there are so many little things that add up to make this a less than enjoyable experience. 1. Hard to find how to get in to the place. Located on a busy intersection you need to access one of the 2 rear carparks... More

Good location, clean, very basic and thus over priced. Be warned they take a full image of your credit card which I suspect is illegal and open to card misuse ...cash would avoid that issue. The attached hotel is a very convenient addition

Spent an overnight here travelling for work. Good basic room with nice bed. Bathroom has been upgraded in recent years and is quite spacious. My only complaint about the bathroom is the shower. Firstly I have an extreme dislike for shower heads that are only 5'6" off the floor, especially since I am over 6'. Secondly the hot tap rotated... More

Not a bad motel - We had to stay here as we have an 11 year old and it was difficult to find anything in Bowral for the 3 of us over the long weekend. It was clean but a bit dated, the pillows were as flat as pancakes and the bed was as hard as concrete. Woke up feeling... More

4 of us stayed in 2 rooms in this motel on Saturday night, for just 1 night. Rooms are quite specious and clean, as is the bathroom. It is located at the end of the main road with all the shops/restaurants etc. It has a bistro with good food and a fire place in the seating area. It also has... More

This was a last minute choice which provided good clean, well priced but basic accomodation. Very little in the way of other facilites, and a little noisy at night with the adjoining bar and carpark, albeit was nearby our favourite cafe where we spent most of our week-end.
