Great place for an overnight stay. Very handy to everything. Clean with everything you need. Nice wide carparks too! Only thing I would change would be a bigger couch in the lounge. Good value for money

We arrived late and the owners were very accommodating, leaving our choice of milk in fridge too. Stunning little town, just a shame we didn't see more of it. If we were back in the area we would stay here again without hesitation. Room was spacious, clean and very comfortable and the book of info was a real help too.

We stayed two nights as part of our pamper package and we think Settlers Motel is hands down the best place to stay in Hanmer. The hosts were very welcoming and the room was warm, comfy, luxurious and the shower is to die for!! The 400+ dvd collection, the free washing machine & laundry service, free wifi, the complimentary tea/coffee,... More

This place had all the trimming of a 5 star motel. The extras were typically complimentary (wifi, laundry and even towels for use off site at the thermal spring pools just a short work away). They were also willing to negotiate a special rate for a couple of pensioners visiting off season. Thanks for a great stay.

We stayed one night at the Settlers Motel and the room and service was excellent, we would defiantly stay again. The attention to detail was a real stand out. Staff were very helpful when we accidentally left something behind, they phoned, however unfortunately we had already left Hanmer, they were very accommodating in posting it back to us.

Hanmer is an a great place to holiday. I have been here a few times. The Settlers is the best that I have stayed at in Hanmer. The rooms are great and so are the owners. I went onto Christchurch and Dunedin and the 4 & 5 star hotels did not match this motel.

Settlers is an excellent venue to stay - quiet, clean and very relaxing. The facilities are brilliant and it was nice to stay at a place with a fridge freezer - great new amenity. The shower has great pressure and I will be staying there again.

We think this is one of the best places to stay in Hanmer. The room was dark and quiet at night and the sofa bed was very comfortable - perhaps the most comfortable bed we have found. The hosts were particularly helpful and I was most impressed with being invited to use the washing machine and dryer which much to... More

From the moment we arrived we were thrilled with the quality of the accommodation at Settlers. The two bedrooms were both large, beds very comfortable, the bathroom spotless, and the kitchen had every thought of amenity. We would definitely return to Hanmer and stay at Settlers.
