“Great value and very clean hotel/motel.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Hi, Due to wet weather we decided to stay in a motel for the night instead of overnighting in our camper trailers on our way up north. At the last minute we booked into Lee's Hotel, Ingham. We were concerned about leaving our not so secure camper trailers and cars with roof racks outside in the car park. The management kindly let us drive them in behind a locked gate allowing us to have a perfect and worry-free sleep on their very comfy beds. The rooms were large, very clean, well presented and excellent value for money. The dining area was well presented and the meals were very tasty. The staff in the dining room were friendly, helpful and kind to the 6 children accompanying us. A continental breakfast was included in our tariff. If we ever have to overnight anywhere near Ingham, Lee's will be where we choose to stay. Thanks for the very comfy overnighter.

Stayed June 2012, traveled with family

Thank you, the staff really appreciated your kind words. And thank you for reminding us that we probably don't tell enough people who need secure parking that there is additional space other than the half acre of well lit carpark hidden behind the hotel/motel. We talked about this at our management meeting and it was a real head shaker, we just have to do better at letting people know that there is more to our car parking facilities than just place to park RVs and four-wheel drives with trailers. Once again thank you for your great feedback it has really been appreciated.

you can really feel a welcome atmosphere the moment you come in. Staffs are friendly and the owner's sone who wanders around while the rest of family are busy with the table prep for the following morning kept us entertain while we are waiting for ur meals. Food is tasty and the room is in good standard. My wife and I did not expect what we found out in the hotel. we are really glad that we choose to book into Lee's Hotel and not other lodging in the area. The Hotel itself is an icon and brings a different expirience to your stay.

Laurie, thank you for your kind words,I have passed your comments on to our friendly helpful staff and they really appreciated all you said and that you took the time and effort to say it.

Thank you for the alert on the small desk, we have now made sure that there is one in every single room as well as putting a slightly larger coffee table/desk in the foyer lounge to make it easier to use a laptop there. Once again thank you for your positive comment, it's what helps us keep on making improvements.

Having recently stayed at Lee's hotel, I can say I was very impressed. Not only did the newly renovated hotel look great, but the staff were friendly and the food was great. When we arrived, we had a lovely lunch in the main bar and after that decided to stay the night. The rooms were very clean, well presented and excellent value for money. The dining area had a great feel and the meals were well presented and very tasty. After my stay, it's obvious that the huge effort to make this hotel the pace to stay in Ingham has paid off, and with my regular trips up north, I have secured it in my itinerary. Thanks guys, and see you again soon!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, it is gratifying to know that all the Refurbishment we have carried out over the last 12 months is really appreciated, and of course it is ongoing. Earlier this month we finished the new “hitching rail bar” at the front of the hotel and we've already had the 1st 2 horses tied up there! Actually that was for the reenactment of the “Pub with no beer” story made famous by Slim Dusty in his hit song in 1975. Everybody have a lot of fun, we didn't run out of beer ! and we look for to seeing you on your return. Once again thank you.

Travel north quite regularly for work, this hotel has gone through an amazing transformation in the past few months. The staff are friendly and courteous and nothing seems too much trouble. The meals are great value and excellent quality. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and the beds are amazing (almost better than mine at home) Will stay there again and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Ingham.
