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.

My friend and I stayed at the Imperial for a couple of nights over Easter. We shared a twin where the 'other' bed is a pull down settee. Not too much of an issue. The room was a decent size, with small table and chairs, and a coffee table. Tea and coffee making facilities were basic. Bathroom was also a... More

Neat and tidy room. Good location on the main street near pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops. Good value for money. Make sure to pull both window blinds down at night so you don't have the sun waking you up in the morning.

A decently priced accomodation. Close to the cafes and restaurants, and the city centre. Also near the Bradman Museum. Good for a family holiday. Moss Vale and Berrima are a short driver away. However, Bowral is an expensive town..

The best thing, by far, about this newly-renovated motel is its location. It's the first motel you find as you are about to enter the shopping area of Bowral from the Sydney/Mittagong side, so you are - literally - a stone's throw from the restaurant and shopping heart of this boutique destination. The rooms we've stayed in have all been... More

The Imperial is well located behind the Imperial Hotel, just off the main street. The rooms are roomy, clean & fresh. If we had a complaint, it would be the shower head & taps. The shower head was very average and the taps took a little working out. It looks as though the motel is having some work done to... More
