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

I stayed here for a couple of nights with my brother while playing the various great golf courses in the area. The accommodation was basic, but clean and perfectly good for the price. I wasn't a big fan of the shower, which had taken water saving to a ridiculous level. It was kind of like being pressure hosed with a... More

I was just stopping in Bowral overnight so this motel was a good location and an affordable price. From here I could walk to the center of town in less than a minute or two and get food. The room was clean and rather modern feeling and the bathroom was a good size. The only issue I had with the... More

I would rate this hotel between average and very good. We arrived just after 10am on Saturday and our ground floor (requested) room was ready for us. Found our room to be large, clean and very comfortable. Lady on reception very helpful. Was told there was not much noise as our room was on a side street, but Monday morning... More

We have previously stayed in this motel before it was renovated. Unfortunately the renovation is not a successful one and the place was really dirty. The entry tiles were in need of a scrub with a brush, and the bathroom was completely mouldy. Apparently too hard to spray a bit of bleach around. We had to ask to have our... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst exploring the southern highlands, and found it very comfortable & affordable @ $125 a night a great price for Bowral it's also extremely close to all pubs & restaurants & cafés. The staff were friendly, we didn't eat there as we thought prices a little steep. We will definitely stay... More

Ate lunch on the 26th Feb and was expecting an ok meal. Turned out to be fantastic! We chose the Pork Belly Salad & Lamb Cutlets. Great proportions and quality produce with a modern flair. We will certainly be eating here again.
