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

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 !
