I stayed 3 nights on a business trip. Rooms were spacious. Aircon worked a treat. It has an old feel to it. Bed for me was not comfortable at all. Wifi worked well. Room was serviced daily. I didn't eat at the bistro. Close to Main Street, other restaurants, cafes and shopping prescient.

The Imperial Motel looks as though it has been around for a while and fits nicely with the surrounding historic Bowral streetscape. It has, however, been modernised and it was a great place to stay. Spent two nights there and had nothing to complain about. The upstairs room was large, bright and airy, the fixtures and fittings were very good...

Late check in was easy, Rooms were large, bathroom modern, shower tap was harsh, the only let down. Tv & air conditioning works fine. Room was quite considering it was next to the pub. Check out was easy again. Conveniently had dinner at the pub.

Each year I come and stay at The Imperial Motel for work. Three main reasons: 1) easy drive from Sydney Airport, around 1hr 15mins. 2)Nice and Comfortable Rooms 3) The Imperial Distro , which stops cooking around 9pm so you can get a late feed. The staff are welcoming and it's a good base to work from, in and around...

We had a Queen Room but it seemed more spacious than normal hotel rooms, as did the bed. No complaints! It had had a fresh coat of paint recently, and was clean, tidy and comfortable. We didn't have breakfast in our room, but went to one of the many cafes in the neighbourhood. Parking was a breeze, and we were...

This was our first trip to Australia and having spent 5 days in Sydney we were travelling the coast road to Melbourne. We stopped in Bowral as we wanted to visit the cricket museum. Bowral itself is a lovely town with many boutiques and cafes and the museum is well worth visiting. Sadly our visit to this hotel was awful...

Great value with lovely modern facilities and the attached bistro served delicious meals. We only stayed for one night but room was perfect for our family of four. Great location at end of main street so walking distance to all shops & cafes

We were given the disabled room for some reason when it appeared the establishment wasn't booked out. The room was not very clean, previous occupants hair on the bathroom floor and crusty stains on the carpet. Maintenance also an issue, the windows couldn't be locked however because we had some tools with us meant my husband could fix the locks....

The Imperial was about $60 cheaper than the next available. We found it to be very clean, convenient, and the staff friendly. It's in the CBD and free parking is available. No problem with recommending.

The room I had was functionally appointed with modern furniture and fittings and a good size. My room was tucked away in the corner away from the road and there was no noise or disturbance from the hotel bar area which is located on the opposite side of the parking area. The hotel is well located for walking to the...
