Hi. I wonder what happened with your parking. There is 1 car space provided for each room? Sorry for the inconvenience but I wasn't aware of the fact.

Beautiful Getaway

After a long drive, our stay at Destiny was a welcoming and comforting home away from home to relax. The rooms were immaculate and fresh and the furniture comfortable and modern. The bathroom facilities were great!

One of the nicest little hotels in NZ

Pros: Everything.
This hotel was a real standout - contemporary, clean and well located. The decor was modern and simple and the bathroom and shower facilities were without a doubt the best we had during our 18 day stay in NZ. I understand this hotel has been recently renovated and it shows.

Really good family unit

Pros: handy to central Palmerston Nth good comfy room
Cons: Change parking to give a little greater room. Tight squeeze with a rental family wagon.
Ideal unit for mum dad and kids for eldest's graduation. Late arrival no problem. Painless. Only fly in the ointment was the spa bath repairs were not complete in bathroom with tiling unfinished which has meant I have rated condition at 4 out of 5.

Majorly Disappointing

Having booked substantially cheaper accommodation (and paid the price for it) on my last trip to Palmy, I decided to spend a lot more and "treat myself" to a stay at the Destiny on Fitzherbert. While the staff member who greeted me upon arrival was very friendly, I knew I probably wasn't in for the luxurious visit that I'd imagined when she started our conversation with "so you know that you've been booked into one of our older rooms... right?" Not willing to fork out for the "upgrade" she suggested after already paying what was almost $300 for two nights, I told her that I was what I had would be fine, and she took me to my room. Opening the door to it, the receptionist herself didn't look convinced as she turned on the light and asked me "... is this going to be okay?" The room had a thick, musty smell, as though it had been closed up for weeks, and was the most rundown hotel room I have ever come across in my entire life. Everything was either cracked, peeling, stained or had holes in it. Never again.
