This motel was a cosy, comfortable and relaxing room. We were in room 20 which had a working a-c, a mimi fridge, a large bathroom, a family room and a separate bedroom for the kids. This motel was quiet considering being next to a pub and i would definitely recommend tag you stay at this motel

Average sort of accommodation in Bowral but it suited us for our needs. The location is good on Bong Bong street and handy to the town centre. The rooms are pretty comfortable and the beds were nice and cosy. I thought the price was a bit steep but I guess that is just Bowral because most other places were more... More

At $195 for one Saturday night, the owners of The Imperial are having a laugh. Though I guess there's no real competition in this part of town. We didn't have any issues with Reception or check-in but found the room less than satisfactory. The grout in the bathroom was black with mould, a light switch cover was broken, power points... More

Basic with City Price Tag, large rooms and can accommodate large families. Close to bar and restaurants but value is based on City weekenders and not for what it is. Every hotel/motel should supply bottled water in room, this one doesn't so make sure you bring your own.

The rooms were nice but nothing more than you'd expect from a motel. I'd agree the staff are sour but when asked questions they would be helpful. The plumbing is not great eg you can hear other people running water, but our children slept through, so it's more annoying rather than disturbing. The biggest noise is provided by the train...

Checked into room 4 on friday night. Nice simple room. Quickly realised there was something wrong with the plumbing. When flushing the toilet, the water raised to the top of the bowl, then drained down over the next 30 mins. When empty, the toilet made a loud sucking noise. The noise got worse when having a shower, and also seemed... More

We stayed here for a girls weekend so didn't spend much time in the room other than getting ready and sleeping! It was clean enough but the bathroom felt a little dirty because of the bath mat that was hanging filled with bath scum. Overall a good cheap option for one night. The woodfired Pizzas are fantastic in the pub!

This fairly new motel extension to the established pub business is convenient, clean and well-equipped. The rooms are spacious and include all the usual in-room extras. The only downside is the lack of insulation from the noise of the local parrots.

We stayed here during a visit for a family wedding. From check in to check out the staff were obliging and friendly. Rooms were clean, tidy and light. Shower was lovely and big. Beds were comfy, and there was plenty of extra blankets available should we needed them. 👍🏼

We had been to the Imperial 2 years ago and enjoyed the proximity to restaurants and town features. Last time we had friendly staff, affordability and a pleasant stay. We decided to stay again, on a journey passing through. Not so great this time. The matronly receptionist was rude, dismissive, patronising and disinterested. The room was clean but the privacy...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, your feedback is much appreciated. Just to let you know we had had all privacy latches & locks inspected to ensure they are in perfect working order, & have also checked all bed linen for any wear or rips. We hope to see you again soon. More
