On a road trip, whilst holidaying in NZ, taking each day as it comes, we somehow ended up in Whangarei with no accommodation... so finally we managed to book ourselves a room,using our extremely slow internet connection on my phone, to find some where to rest our weary bones... last minute in Whangarei.
Thankfully price was reasonable, the place super clean and well kind of nice too. Voila, we hit gold. Discovery Settlers Hotel.
We got a reasonable price last minute booking on a Sunday evening, the staff were really friendly and even upgraded us! Awesome.
Clean, comfy, big TV, veranda off the bedroom, view of the river, big king size bed, no bath but a lovely hot shower... the next day we had a yummy breakfast at the restaurant, it wasn't included but we didn't mind.
Since we slept in we were late checking out but again the staff we so kind, didn't charge us extra and even gave us a newspaper.
I highly recommend this hotel.
