Stayed here for one night on a stopover. It was basically the last room left in Nambucca Heads during peak holiday time so we paid way too much for it. Room was comfortable but very outdated and in need of a good makeover. A simple door for the bathroom would be a good start. Grounds are lovely, which is where...

Thank you for your review and I do agree the rooms need updating but they are clean. The reason the gardens were a priority for the new owners is that not one room could see our beautiful pond and the sleeper wall were all rotted out, now they are replaced and the garden is looking beautiful we will concentrate on...

This hotel is great as a place to stop inbetween Sydney and Brisbane. It's right off the highway but no traffic noise in the rooms. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean. The restaurant was convenient but overpriced and underwhelming.

Excellent for an overnight stay. Checkin was made easy with friendly staff. Parking is at the front door with guest parking availed. Rear of our double room has a full window with nice view out to the pond. Pleasant!

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.

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
