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.

My wife and I stayed here overnight on 4 March to break our car journey from Christchurch to Nelson. We stayed again on the return trip on 10 April. Settlers is the best motel we have stayed in Hanmer Springs. We have stayed in 2 others. Everything you need is in the room, free wifi, and a short walk to... More

We had only one night at the Settlers Motel and were very impressed. Check in was smooth and informative. The owner took the time to walk us to our room and point things out. He also gave a good overview of the township and hot pools. There is a sizeable collection of DVD's to watch available from Reception should you... More

We received a warm welcome from the owners who are obviously very proud of their motel - and they should be. The motel is beautifully maintained, the rooms are spacious, tastefully furnished, immaculately clean and comfortable. The owners go the extra mile: there is a free laundry, free wi-fi, free use of towels if going to the Pools, free milk... More
