“Comfortable room, friendly staff”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Settlers Hotel provided a comfortable refurbished, clean room. Very comfortable bed and quiet surroundings even though the room was facing the main road. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. The air conditioning unit in the room was a bit noisy and therefore could not be left on during the night. The restaurant provided great meals.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished larger room, as some guests in our party got very small rooms.

We stayed at The Settlers hotel on Sunday night. We had a family function to go to on the Sunday afternoon in Whangarei.
We asked for an early check in for mid-day and that was no problem at all.
Staff Very accommodating. Nice room, a little noisy from road traffic, at busy times of the day
Great deal and a delicious cooked breakfast included on Monday morning. Friendly staff
Would have liked bar snacks with our drinks on Sunday evening. Overall great place and so close to Whangarei township.

Room Tip: Would suggest units at the rear of the property re road noise.

Thank you Rick and to the friendly staff for being so accommodating to our model A car club members. Everybody loved the clean, spacious and tastefully furnished rooms. Also the restaurant meals were spectacular. We all had a great time and will recommend Settlers.
Thanks again

Once again another great stay at Settlers. I love the rooms up the back, newly upgraded, lovely furnishings, warm, close to carpark, quiet. We have made this our place to stay when I come up to visit my daughter with her little sister. The restaurant is great and the breakfasts yummy! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

If you are looking for a great place for your group to stay in Whangarei, look no further!
In 2011 we had a large group who stayed for 3 nights over Christmas and once again in 2013 for a one night stay. On both occasions our group was really well looked after by all the staff, the rooms were large, clean and well appointed, the buffet evening meals were FANTASTIC with plenty of choices with the breakfasts equally as good. The prices were very competitive and the ease of booking and follow ups was also friendly and hassle free.
Great grounds give a relaxed feel to the hotel. Easy walk to marina for a relaxed after dinner walk.
Passengers have often commented since our stays about how well they were treated and their fond memories.
Would recommend to anyone. Well done and a big thanks for making our stays so enjoyable.

Pleasant clean rooms, well equipped bathroom with nice towels. Modern TV with many Sky channels. The adequate continental breakfast was included in the price we paid sadly the cooked one wasn't, which was disappointing. Easy convenient parking and close to the town centre.

Room Tip: Road noise could be a bit of an issue for a light sleeper.
