Just stayed for 5 nights. Found all the staff to most helpful and pleasant. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Meals were great and substantial. 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.

We stayed at this motel for 5 nights and found the staff to be most helpful as they each were attentive in caring for our every need. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious with the highest order of cleanliness.

In our desire to experience the beautiful township of Nambucca Heads, we found accommodation in the few places available - The Destiny Motor Inn. The marketed newly refurbishment was actually sticky carpets, no windows letting in fresh air (with also no fan), and all night doorstep fluorescent lighting. Additionally, with terrible and rude service, I deeply regret giving my hard... More

The food at the restaurant is amazing! Definitely eat there! It's really amazing I've never stayed at the motel as I'm a local. Sorry to hear about the bed experiences but still eat at the restaurant !

My wife and I arrived at the Destiny 03JAN after booking online at Last Minute.com. Were given Unit #36 which had recently been refurbished with a fresh paint job, new carpets etc. Bed very comfortable. Must agree with previous comments on the unwarranted grumpiness of what I would guess is the Owner. But on the other side of the coin,... More

I booked a family room at the Destiny Motel and the manager - an old man - was completely rude, but did confirm that a family room was available! However, he did not take my details and when I tried to give them to him and when I tried to confirm numbers he hung up! Twice! When we got there... More
