Room was very cosy and clean.The service was impeccable.Dinner at there restaurant was great,waitress and chef were superb.Next day breakfast delivered was almost far too much for an indivual person,ie 2 rounds toast 2 poached eggs tomatoes and oodles of bacon plus a hot pot of tea.

Good location an easy walk to Tyto Wetlands and thankfully Seafood takeaway is nearly opposite as Maria's Restaurant wasn't open. Undercover parking at door. Good sized room with rural outlook. Old style bathroom in need of renovation (excepting toilet) with tiles starting to fall off the wall.

Two couples had a unit each side by side. They were clean and beds comfortable. Badly in need of an upgrade as rather old and dingy. Acceptable for an overnight stay but no longer. The man in the office was very pleasant indeed and immediately attended to a noise complaint one of us made.

I recently stayed for 2 nights while working in the area as I could not get into my usual accommodation. Friendly reception. Overall, the room I had was aged, but quite clean apart from a cockroach that emerged from behind the fridge. No mini-bar. Bed was comfortable with clean linen. Not enough light to be able to work at the... More

I stayed here for several nights over a 3 week period when in Ingham for work. I was tempted to try elsewhere but to be honest the fellow relieving in reception was so kind and helpful I made the decision to stay put. I have to disagree with all the reviews that said the rooms were really clean. The bedding... More

On opening the door we were greeted by a strong chemical smell, overwhelmingly strong. The first thing I checked out was the bathroom, it was very dated, the shower cubicle needs ripping out and retiling. The owner has made a big effort in the main room. Everything was scrupulously clean, new carpet, new curtains, nice bedding all matching and crisp... More

I stay at the Herbert Valley Motel whenever I go to Ingham for work. It is not the newest property but offers clean and comfortable rooms at reasonable prices. The in house meals are fantastic and they do room service which allows you to keep working in your room. The proprietor Dennis is a friendly chap and also happy to... More

No its not 4 star but it is very nice and clean with good sized rooms. I read the menu for the restaurant and decided not to bother as it was quite unrealistic with its pricing. The motel prices were very reasonable probably a little high for the quality. Overall not to bad

Agree with all the previous reviewers except that the hi-vis workers when we were there were a pest until late - luckily our room was a fair way from them. Particularly agree with Suzanne about the unbearably strong chemical smell, thank heaven we could open the window. Didn't see any cockies but the place is old and shabby. Wouldn't stay... More
