We stayed one night in Settler's motel en route to our destination and were very impressed. Given that it's just off state highway one, this motel is quiet and relaxing and we could easily have stayed longer.
The owners are welcoming, genuine people. The unit was spacious - the decor a little tired, but not terrible. I get bad hayfever, and had no indication of dust here - a great success. There's good outdoor space - from a lovely BBQ area, to a field and some sports equipment provided in the laundry for the kids to play with.
The supermarket is a few minutes walk away.
Great people. Great location. Thanks!
