My husband and I were on our honeymoon throughout March and we stayed at the Settlers Motel. The owners Helen and Wayne were helpful and so informative. They knew everything to do in the beautiful town of Turangi, every route, every hike, and every street name. Not only were they so knowledgeable about the area but the accommodations were affordable, and very clean and cozy. The wifi was strong, the kitchens were immaculate all with fresh milk for our complimentary tea and coffee. Not only was our stay perfection, but we accidentally left our iPad in our bed, and Helen and Wayne promptly emailed us with the situation, and then graciously offered to have it be sent to a family member of theirs on the South Island. We were obviously upset about leaving it, but they took care of the situation for us as if they were family. We can't speak highly enough about our stay at the Settlers Lodge, and we are grateful to have met Helen and Wayne.
