Sue and her husband John are always very welcoming and helpful. The motel accommodation is very clean, well equipped and spacious. Good parking and surroundings. Suggestion: more Sky TV channels so we can get BBC or CNN.

Stopped overnight in Dannevirke to break up a long car journey, just pulled into the first motor lodge we came to. Very pleased to find the very friendly Sue & John, beautifully presented and super clean rooms at a good price. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Time is short when we're 'on the road' and I wouldn't usually write a recommendation. Sue and John, however, really looked after us. Spacious, clean and airy rooms with comfy beds and everything you could want. Amazing packed lunches and nothing was too much trouble - even my rather too frequent requests for printing. I left some medication in my...

Very nice room we were in. Quiet,comfortable and roomy. We have stayed at Destination Motel before and found very worthy of another visit. We were in room 1 with our twin grand-daughters. All just as nice as the first time.

Not lots and lots of places in Dannevirke. We needed one night during a really cold and wet snap this winter. The place we stayed the night before was cold and draughty so my choice was for warmth - read 'heater and electric blanket'. Destinations exceed expectations. Took the last room available - with a bath as well. Clean, modern,...

Destinations Motor Lodge in Dannevirke ticked all the boxes for us as we traveled through to the Hawkes Bay from Wellington. It is clean, neat spacious and we all had a good nights sleep. Their price was good value for money and we will gladly return. Although the motel is on the main road we were not disturbed by traffic...

Decided we were not going to make Napier and stopped here for a night. Sue and John very friendly and efficient, showed us a studio which was clean and tidy and good value. It's on the main road and there is a bit of road noise, but you get used to it. A 5 minute stroll down the main road...
