During March 2017, we joined a group on a tour to Nambucca Heads, staying at the Destiny Motor Inn. Our coach driver for this tour was Tony and he did a wonderful job for us. Our accomodation at the Motor Inn was comfortable. Our room was close to the highway, and you could hear the traffic, but with the air...

Hi Carmel As I mentioned to everyone on arrival....please let me know any problems at the time and not when you leave. We could of sourced softer pillows for you. Each room has toiletries, hand wash over the basin and shampoo and body wash in the shower. We have these in every room. The most complaints that we received from...

When booking somewhere to stay there are a few things most people look for - ease of access, clean rooms, quiet area. The Destiny is all of these things. After traveling in the car with 2 children (4 and 1) it was lovely to be able to get out and sit down outside and let the kids play on grass....

Stayed here for one night on a stopover. It was basically the last room left in Nambucca Heads during peak holiday time so we paid way too much for it. Room was comfortable but very outdated and in need of a good makeover. A simple door for the bathroom would be a good start. Grounds are lovely, which is where...

Thank you for your review and I do agree the rooms need updating but they are clean. The reason the gardens were a priority for the new owners is that not one room could see our beautiful pond and the sleeper wall were all rotted out, now they are replaced and the garden is looking beautiful we will concentrate on...

This hotel is great as a place to stop inbetween Sydney and Brisbane. It's right off the highway but no traffic noise in the rooms. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean. The restaurant was convenient but overpriced and underwhelming.

Excellent for an overnight stay. Checkin was made easy with friendly staff. Parking is at the front door with guest parking availed. Rear of our double room has a full window with nice view out to the pond. Pleasant!

We were returning from Brisbane to the Southern Highlands and were looking for a convenient place to stay. The staff at Reception and in the restaurant could not have been more cheerful and helpful. The room we stayed in was large and well appointed for the price. Free WiFi was offered. The air conditioning was efficient and quiet. The Motel...

The Destiny Motel was an overall good experience... The Motel is clean and does the job of accomodating but is dated. What I did really enjoy was the restaurant ! Lovely service and the Oysters were to die for... Talk about fresh ! We really enjoyed our meal there and would definitely stop there again especially for the food.
