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.
