“My home way from home”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

I just love staying with Gerarda and Tony. The cottages are a unique and charming. The historical pictures make the cottage come alive. On quite nights you can put your imgination to work, to see how it was back in the 1800's.
The cottages are very central to the main streets of Bathurst, and just a short walk way, is the best ice cream shop in Australia.
Hopefully the Uni time table will let me return back soon.

We will definitely stay at A Settlers Cottage again.
The location is great - so close to the center of Bathurst. We have 2 small children and staying in a house with all the equipment that a family needs is essential to making any holiday a happy holiday! Gerada and Tony were terrific hosts and made sure we had everything we needed.
We live in QLD and I have recommended the Cottages to others if and when they ever travel through or stay at Bathurst.

We were really happy with our stay.
Loved the quirky touches in the rooms. It made you feel at home.
The kids had a good time & there was lots of room for us all.
The owners were very welcoming & very helpful with all our questions.
Will be back for sure.

We as a large family group have used all the cottages twice - 2010 and 2012. Other family members as smaller units have revisited and stayed at the cottages. They are quaint and charming and we certainly enjoyed each visit, with plans to go back and stay again. Our overseas relatives raved about the cottages and the surrounds. Management we found to be extremely friendly and helpful. They counldn't seem to do enough to make our stay(s) memorable. I would recommend these cottages to all who appreciate a relaxing, welcoming and pleasant atmosphere.

Our family of 5 stayed in one cottage, and another couple of families stayed in the adjoining cottages. It was ideal for a large group to gather. The management were extremely friendly and accommodating. The cottages are well over 100 years old, they are clean, quirky, full of character. This is the very reason they are charming. Such a nice change from the generic, characterless, boring accommodation that is offered by most hotel/motels. They are located in a great part of town, just down the street from great restaurants. If you want something different, then the cottages are ideal and very affordable. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting affordable, clean and unique accommodation.

Room Tip: The owners are extremely helpful in helping you choose the right cottage for your particular needs.

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

ASCottage, Manager at A Settlers Cottage, responded to this review, 8 February 2013
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.
