The Imperial is a carefully-restored heritage-listed building with only 6 bedrooms and an apartment making it an exclusive retreat from the heat. The transformation from a neglected corner pub to The Imperial’s current features took 9 years and was a labour of love. A visit to The Imperial indicates the level of detail put into the restoration including its unique pressed metal ceilings, original stair case, and stable walls around the swimming pool and courtyard from the original hotel. Each room is individually furnished and decorated with a variety of antique pieces.
The Imperial’s attention to detail in all things is evident in its magnificent rooms and facilities. The high standard of the renovation of this landmark building occurred in consultation with a heritage advisor and expert builders, keeping in mind the needs of the modern traveller.
