I guess you get what you pay for. Very dark room, need upgrade urgently. Kitchen was not clean. Can not recommend this place to any of my friend. Sorry but not up to min accommodation standards that one can expect in a regional town

Even though most of our guests are wonderful and clean up after themselves we still have a policy to professionally clean and prepare the cottages prior to each guest arriving. We will now offer everyone a money back quarentee: The cottage is clean when you arrive or we will send in a clean team for you AND you get the night FREE. Our Cottages were built in the late 1800s and some of the windows are small but we have many beautiful east facing bedrooms and verandahs to choose from. They retain much of their heritage and are a unique stay.

In October 2012 , We decided to get married in Bathurst, My Bride and I chose A Settlers Cottage as the place to spend the Weekend with Friends and Family. We found the place so beautiful and charming, And the Owners were so helpful and could not do enough for us, We had a bottle of bubbles left for us with a lovely welcome note for us and our guests. They even had fresh rose petals left for us on the front steps. All of our friends and family loved the cottages, and the place was well appointed and very clean. We will def be back to stay again and would recommend these cottages to anyone.

I feel compelled to write something here regarding A Settlers Cottage in Bathurst. I was looking to make a booking for next week and came across the complaint posted by Aylia-Hill. I am not sure which cottage they stayed in, buy my partner and I have stayed in Jordan Cottage and Middle Cottage and found them both to be charming, comfortable, and just as they are portrayed on the website (which does have pictures of the interior).

It is called a Settlers Cottage, and as a reasonable person that is just what you would expect...not the Hyatt!!!! The unique charm and wonderful old pictures throughout make it homey and a different experience to staying in a motel or hotel, which we do often. When we are in Bathurst we usually stay for a few days and find the washing machine, dryer, private yard and full kitchen to come in very handy.

My partner and I had no problem sleeping whatsoever and with several beds to chose from, I would say most people would get a good nights sleep. The furniture is in keeping with the style of the cottages and we found the lounges to be very comfy, the tv modern, a stereo provided and even wood for the fire supplied.

The location is superb, it's just a short walk to town.

We will be back as often as we can and urge visitors to try it for themselves.

Tarni and Dave.

Do yourself a favour and do not stay there... it is what's called and it haven't change much... They don't have picture of the accommodation on the website for a reason. The place is dark without natural light. The bed is rock solid... I could not sleep the whole night and was twisting and turning to try and find a comfortable position. It is self contained however the thought of cooking there was a turn off... The interior is old, the furnitures are uncomfortable. An old plastic rose was left on the bed to make us welcome - i guess... We found it to be very tacky, uncomfortable and uninviting. sorry

We are A Settlers Cottage! Workers cottages built in the 1880s and they still retain much of the character of the time. Our website has been dedicated to the uniqueness of the stay. It includes video tours and all visitor book entries since 2009 when we aquired the property. We appreciate all positive feedback and you may well be right about the roses on the bed. We will look at A Settlers alternative to provide a different welcome touch.
