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...

Great price, great hosts, very clean and modern. The shower pressure was amazing. There were pump bottles of hand soap. hand cream, shampoo and body wash. Great touch! We were given a decent sized bottle of milk when we arrived.The hosts even offered to take us to our venue which we were amazed by. When we arrived back that night...

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.

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,...

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...

We have stayed here in the past and recently spent 2 nights here while attending a wedding. First you need to know it's on a main road through the town BUT we did not find it too bad noise wise. The unit was very clean indeed and the hosts most welcoming. Because of the times we stayed in the unit...

A lovely motel to stay. Owners are very friendly and helpful and even put our motorbike in their garage overnight. I would certainly recommend this motel for any one driving through. They are clean units and beds good.
