5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 weeks ago

I was very impressed with my recent three stays at the Destiny Motor Inn. Eve and Les have been working non-stop to restore the appearance and cleanliness of the rooms and the grounds, and it really shows. The rooms are spacious and look out onto the large pond, a very soothing and restorative sight, with its waterlilies and birdlife. Although... More

We stayed one night recently because we had enjoyed it about 20 years ago! Each room looks out onto a beautiful garden and lagoon and the architecture of the place is very attractive. Sadly it needs upgrading owing to problems with previous management. However gradually it is being improved and our stay was very comfortable. Excellent beds, very clean accommodation,... More

Due to a change of plans, our party of 30 stayed at the Destiny Motor Inn with only an hour;'s notice. The management went out of their way to ensure we were looked after, offering to bring in staff for their restaurant should we want a meal. Rooms were not cramped, and well presented. While the Motel adjoins the main... More

We stayed at Destiny on a recent trip North and again on the way back! OK there were a few problems which I addressed with the management who have recently taken over the job. They were very interested in feedback and I would like to think that the problems were addressed. The room was very clean, but the first night... More

During our stay we did several sightseeing tours of the region, the driver/guide from Avid Travel was very knowledgeable and a true gentleman. Very enjoyable stay would recommend to anyone interested in visiting the... More

Recently stayed at this motel for one night. We booked as it was mentioned that it was a Best Western Motel which it isn't. The rooms are really filthy, the teapot had muck down the side of it, I cleaned the switches and channel changer with antiseptic wipes and they were black.The sheets felt as if they hadn't been changed,,...

This place has its original 80's feel but the new management are sprucing things up. Clean, tidy, great service. The restraurant food is AMAZING! Best oysters we have ever had. With a few more loving touches, will be a favourite for passers by.

The rooms were a great size, fairly clean and gorgeous patio area. The room didn't smell overly amazing but none of us really minded as we were only there for 1 night. Close to Nambucca River bank. Reasonable pricing for the peak time we stayed.
