“Very clean and good location.”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We stayed on a Saturday night and after reading about the drunks leaving the hotel I wondered if we had made the right choice. The room was a good size the bathroom had been renovated and was clean. We ate at the hotel and stayed on for the band. The food was very good and very busy but the service was quick and efficent. There was security in the hotel checking IDs and after going back to our room didnt hear any noise so may have picked the right night.

I recently stayed for 2 nights with a group of 20 while we found the rooms OK the service from reception was unorganised and Basil Faulty like. There is no night staff or security and the motel is located across the carpark at a corner where all the late night drunks walk through as a short cut, stopping to urinate on guests cars and yell loudly as they pass your rooms. The rooms are freezing in winter with no electric blankets.
The Food in the Bistro was good but very very expensive. We were not able to organise a set menu for our party and felt ripped off at the prices of food until we noticed EVERYTIME we went to the bar to order drinks the same order would be at a higher price. Three times I personally ordered the same drinks to be charged higher and higher each time.I believe that they rip tourists off, on complaining and asking to see the manager and 20 something Bartender told me to leave if I believed I had been ripped off and would not contact managment for me as requested. WONT STAY AGAIN. Thieves.

Room Tip: dont book this motel all rooms are noisy and frezzing cold

We headed back towards Sydney after YASS and wanting to take scenic drive around the Southern Highlands of NSW and stop for gentle walk with our son in Bowral.Since it was around lunch time we were on the look out for a place to have lunch.We found the Imperial Hoteland found the ldining room with a black board.We went to the counter ordred our meals menu and lunch special at $12 which is excellent value, fire place burning huge logs , decor and setting clean and modern with a vibrant buzz about it.We settle in our banquet corner waiting for our meals.Food was fresh and very good would recommend it to anybody lovely feel.

Room Tip: great place for lunch or dinner

Motel was fantastic - clean, tidy and all at a reasonable price. Very close to everything we needed and having the pub right there topped it off. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The bathroom walls were covered in mould. There was no night staff on duty and as a result there was loud partying , doors banging, loud music until 4.30 in morning when management were told in morning they just said maybe we should have staff on!!! Unacceptable! Will not stay or recommend .

Reviewed January 10, 2012

The rooms have been recently refurbished and are comfortable and quiet. Mine had a queen size bed, a couch and a small table and chairs for meals. There was also a good size desk with plenty of power points for computers / recharging phones, etc. The night I was there they had an open mike session at the hotel and I didn't hear a thing. The motel rooms are on two levels and, if you have a heavy suitcase, I would recommend requesting a downstairs unit. There was plenty of off-street parking. The only downside for me was that they don't do room service (except for breakfast). And, although they said the office was open from 8.00am, I left at 8.15 and it still wasn't open. I prefer to hand my key over personally.

Room Tip: Book downstairs if you have a heavy suitcase.
