We wanted a one night get away to visit the souther highlands and see the autumn colour. Previously we have stayed a little out of town and at higher priced accommodation but this time we decided to try the Imperial Motel, right at the beginning of the Main Street and within easy walking distance to all the shops. The location was perfect and the staff at the Hotel friendly and welcoming.

We asked for a quiet room and were given room 11 on the first floor. It was spacious, clean, modern and very comfortable. The room was oversized compared to most motel rooms and nice to have a lounge with cushions to support your back. We were advised that the A/C takes 5 mins to get going once activated - it did and was quiet and great. Also for those wanting a hot hot shower this was one of the best I have experienced. Great pressure and steaming hot - awesome. As for quiet - totally quiet and a good sleep although the pillows were a little firm.

Rather than have breakfast at the hotel we wandered up the Main Street for breakfast at one of the many funky cafes. A superb night and great value for money. We will be back.

Comfortable rooms with great bistro and award winning food before a log fire. The Bowral experience in a nutshell!
We were hungry after a traffic delayed trip from Sydney, and it was an unusually bleak day for April, but 'The Imperial's' hospitality cheered us up and sent us on to our family wedding occasion held in a local vineyard restuarant.

Room Tip: Book early!

Great location, great room spotless throughout.
Rang on day of arrival booking procedure laid back and very helpful.
Best of all was help from young lady at reception she could not have been more helpful.
Great advice re where to eat for breakfast and evening meal.
Would have no hesitation in staying here again if we could get in!

Room Tip: Liked room 11

Easy check in. Up a flight of stairs to corner room 14 well away from the pub and overlooking a vacant lot. Clean, fresh and new. Comfortable bed.
However 2 things will stop me returning.
1. The cleaner used smells like those balls they place in men's urinals. Very off putting for a guy. My wife did not have the same association but did not like the smell.
2. Noise. Even though brick walled and carpeted, the noise of people coming and going echoes badly. It's not the noise from pub, it's from other guests, coming in and out, starting cars and idling diesel engines. Weather strips under doors, mats on walkways, more vegetation, sort furnishings hanging on external walls would all help.

Room Tip: Stayed in the motel clean comfortable and great value i think all the rooms are fine
