We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Sally and Alan were very helpful and courteous hosts with very high standards that were reflected in the comfortable, clean, warm and all-round quality of our unit. Even our two grand-daughters were very impressed and much appreciated the complimentary pool towels and DVDs. Overall, we found that our motel and hosts... More

I have stayed here a couple of times 1st time a few years ago and just recently. The quality of the rooms is very good and there is plenty of space with a sofa and a small table. They offer towels for the pools which is a great help and the owners seem very friendly and helpful. We arrived early... More

What a lovely stay!! My wife and I came to stay over the weekend and we were very impressed with Settlers. The room was really nice and had a good amount of cutlery, plates and cooking gear. We were also impressed with being able to use the extensive dvd library to watch something at night, and use towels for the... More

Clean tidy professionally staged. A lovely greeting at the front and a fantastic set out. Have stayed at others in hammer but was thrilled with Settlers. Handy to town and good value for money. Would highly recommend to others.

Our family of five (three teenagers) stayed two nights at Settlers Motel and could not have been happier. The apartment was comfortably and stylishly furnished with warm and cosy beds. It was so convenient to walk into town for morning coffee or home after dinner. The Hot Pools are just across the street. The rates were really reasonable for what... More

we enjoyed our one night stay, it was relaxing and enjoyable, the double bed was very comfortable with a lovely decor. There was a good selection of free dvds to watch. The dressing gowns were lovely but unfortunately they were only a medium size and didnt fit one of us, a larger size would of been nice. The outside light... More

Spent a night in the honeymoon suite at settlers motel in june 2014. Very warm welcome on arrival, fantastic accommodation which was warm and comfortable. The spa bath was a real treat. Walking distance to the hot springs and restaurants.

This accommodation was arranged for us in our pamper package at Hanmer Springs. The girl who checked us in was very nice. There was free parking, so that was fantastic and the room was better than we could have expected. It was quiet, the bed was comfortable, clean and the bathroom had a heated towel rack which was an added... More

Warm (due to the heat pump), cosy room nicely decorated. Walking distance to pools, shops, restaurants. We checked out and mentioned we were heading to the pools, and were offered towels which we dropped back afterwards. The motel was a delightful discovery as part of our pamper package and we'll definitely be staying here again this winter.

We are tucked away down a side street, but quiet and close to the village amenities and restaurants, and of course the Thermal Pools (500 metre walk). We look foward to welcoming you back! More
