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.

Looking for somewhere with no opportunity to do any research, we found Destiny Motor Inn. I would recommend this motel. The welcome, the quality of the rooms, and the meal at dinner was superb. Fab!!!

The last time I stay here was a couple of years ago on my way to Sydney. The Motel then needed a urgent upgrade as it was very rundown and dated. I was not sure whether to book again but read some reviews and they said it had been renovated. I'm glad I read these as The Destiny stay was...

We stayed the night at the Destiny after a long drive from Brisbane. After informing Colin we would be arriving late he turned the lights and the heater on in our room which was a lovely welcome. The room was clean and homely and the shower nice and hot! Highly recommended.

Great place for a stopover, friendly staff a little out dated but clean rooms and comfy beds. Restaurant on site ask for a room at the back much quieter, does have a lot of coach tours but can usually get a room, a good stopover point of travelling from NSW to QLD as easy access from highway

We were on a road trip to Sydney from Brisbane with our two kids and stayed overnight here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The location was just off the highway, but noise was very limited and did not interrupt our sleep. The grounds around the motel were very well taken care...

This is a delightful Motor Inn, undergoing major landscaping renovations. As well as the highway noise, which was considerable because of the location of our room, the most disappointing part of our stay was the very disappointing dinner. We were on our way north from Sydney to Queensland in September and had booked online. The restaurant is very attractive, with...

I am sorry about your dinner but I can assure you that the oysters were not frozen. I have spoken to the chef about this and things will change

From the moment we walked in we were welcomed with nice friendly staff. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The restaurant and service was also not to be faulted. The food was beautiful. Overall excellent place to stay and if ever we are back in this neck of the woods this is where we would stay.

Last time very disappointed and not too clean. This time a nice surprise...clean fresh sheets, large room, good lighting, very clean shower, and even the swampy area is looking like the beginnings of a lovely pond. Will revisit when working in the area again.
