We had a delightful and totally satisfying stay at the Settlement Hotel thanks to its friendly staff and heartwarming service. From Rooms Division Manager Mr Lim to the gardener, all the staff greeted us with smiles, and was polite and courteous. Unlike typical hotels, the Settlement Hotel made effort with thoughtful touches to make our stay a delight – we... More

Stayed at The Settlement Hotel on 14 Dec as a pit stop before we continued our journey to KL. Reached at 12noon but the room was not ready yet so we decided to have lunch at their restaurant. They have a few lunch sets at RM25 each. I had the Malay set. My kids had a non-spicy chicken dish while... More

The hotel is clean and comfortable. We stayed 2 nights and on the first morning (Saturday) breakfast was a menu meal and on the second morning it was a buffet. Both were good although I preferred the buffet. There do seem to be some issues with the shuttle service. On the first afternoon it didn't seem to be running so... More

This hotel is a wonderful choice if you do not need to stay close to the action. Its weaknesses were service related, which may make them easier to remedy than physical issues. I absolutely loved the comfortable bed, which was wonderfully soft, yet not so soft that it was a struggle to get out of bed (as has happened at... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel with a quite satisfaction of clean room, new building, and good breakfast. A little troublesome was parking lot where it was a little bit difficult to find out, but OK once we found the signboard to the parking lot beside the road. As the Portuguese settlement is very near by this hotel, walking... More

The hotel is modern and very comfortable. The staff are attentive, polite and eager to help. The breakfast is sensational with a wide array of fresh and cooked food, both western and Malaysian. Dinner in the hotel was excellent - they had a special deal on some modern Malaysian meals, which were well-priced, authentic and wonderful. A free shuttle bus... More

We had a wonderful stay along with 2 other couples. The hotel was a bit out and finding a taxi was from jammed up Jonker area back to the hotel was a bit challenging. But it was nice to get away from the noise and crowd of the area to a peaceful relaxing sanctuary... On hindsight, parking at a nearby... More

Firstly, I would recommend this hotel if you are driving and fine with driving to the attractions. Being off site from the shopping malls and key attractions, it is a great trade off for us. We did consider using the shuttle service but there was charges and timings to keep. So we just drove to 1 of the malls at... More
