We had booked two rooms for three nights at the end of September. The rooms were not cleaned during the time we were there, not even the beds made. The bedding was disgusting. The rooms were freezing with no form of heating. On booking in, I requested a first floor room to which I was told they were all booked... More

Just driving into the motel started to ring alarm bells. The driveway & grounds were poorly maintained which is not a good start. Rang the bell at reception & waited 10 min for the old guy to appear.

The motel is way over rated and far too expensive for what you are getting. We are paying $190 per night per room, the bathroom is dirty, the towels and linen are... More

I stayed at the Destiny Motor Inn October 28 & 29 - $140 per night - 2 queen size beds, air con and a usable uncovered balcony. Decor is 20 years old; basic but clean. Next to the A1 highway and a 2 minute drive from the Nambucca Heads high street.
