This historic place has been modernised to make the most of its unusual layout. We opted for a quiet room, so were overlooking a central area with no view, but the room was well laid out to maximise space, was attractively and freshly decorated and had a very comfortable queen bed and good free a/c. We were warned to order... More

Historic building, beautifully restored. The room was very small, but clean and comfortable. We were right above the bar, but the noise was not excessive. The air conditioner worked well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in the bar was good and reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone in the area - we... More

We stayed on a Sunday in January 2014. The place was dead. We were met by a doom and gloom staff member who doubled as the barmaid. The room was tiny and the bathroom badly needed modernising. The bathroom was 1metre X 4 so to get from the window to the shower I had to close the door! The room... More

We are really really sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations, in 2012 we received the Finalists Award for unique accommodation in North Queensland. Over 12,000 people have stayed with us over the last 2 years and only 7 of them have written to voice concerns. We take this very seriously and have had a management meeting to... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find a full-service motel, with super comfortable beds to break the drive between Cairns and Townsville. We ate in both the bistro and restaurant and we found both good value. The free hot breakfast was a huge bonus as was the free wifi. Parking was not a problem and you could easily fit an RV... More

My trip to Ingham was really complemented by staying at this cute little hotel. It's well located, with nice shops and restaurants nearby. The atmosphere inside the hotel is lively and very happy. The hosts at the hotel are very friendly and welcoming. For the price I paid, I literally couldn’t have asked for more.

This place gave me a unique sort of feeling, maybe because of the very relaxed atmosphere or maybe because the staff for exceptionally friendly and professional – either ways, I really enjoyed my stay here. The food available close-by was amazing and it was a very quiet and peaceful place. It was no fancy hotel like those modern 5-star hotels... More

Last Monday night, my daughter and I arrived in Ingham after visiting friends with no plans on where to stay. I had attended school in the area some 30yrs before and had never spent a night in Ingham that wasn't at school. So we decided to check in and we weren't disappointed! The room was very clean and well kept.... More

I stayed a couple of nights at Lee's hotel. Found my room clean and comfortable. The rooms have a sit-out on the outside, which is a pretty place to sit and watch the views from. The staff were helpful. I thought the location of the hotel is useful, with plenty of dining options a short walk away.

This Lee's Hotel is a pretty place, located right off the main Ingham steet. There's plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. I loved the artsy vibe of the place. The staff were very courteous, and our rooms were comfortable. All in all, we had a good experience at 'The Pub with No Beer'

Been here twice now. Just keeps getting better. The memorabilia is outstanding. The foods great, and the staff couldn't be more friendly. We'll stay here again. The rooms have new beds,TV's and are very clean and tidy. The bar, lounge and restaurant have all been done up and our meals were great. The Pub With No Beer. Very nice.
