Settlers Cottage Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We found Settlers Cottage Motel on the internet and were looking forward to staying here. We were not disappointed. Our 2 bedroom cottage had plenty of room for our family with comfortable furniture and warm and comfortable beds. It even had a separate toilet from the bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal. My kids loved the trampoline and rock wall to climb. They also loved borrowing the gold pans and going gold panning - and yes they found specks of gold! The location is a quick walk into town and the many beautiful restaurants Arrowtown has to offer. The owners are lovely and friendly and gave us a great recommendation to visit Pesto Restaurant in Arrowtown. We loved Arrowtown and we loved staying here.

From the website, I thought Settlers Cottage looked cute, but when we got there, cute is an understatement. I felt like I was transported to a different place. It's such a beautiful cottage! Everything is clean, well equipped, very spacious and the facilities are all handy. We had an amazing time here. Keep it up!

Lovely presentation from exterior which is carried through interior. Clean, well located, within 5 mins of main street . Has well equipped kitchen & furnishing touches adding to the charm of the exterior plus laundry facilities available at reasonable cost. Owner, Pete an expatriate Aussi was on hand with advice on restaurants & quick to sort out our ignorance on T.V. setup.Arrowtown has been our town of choice on 2 visits in recent years, in lieu of Disney like Queenstown only 15 mins drive away.We extended our 2 nights to 3 on this visit & thoroughly commend Settlers Cottage Motel. Among the top lodgings of 15 used during our travels in November . Spend a dollar at The Stables Restaurant for a memorable meal of quality & a little less at Willow Restaurant next to tavern on street below main street.

I am so pleased to see your comments and as you are regular contributor to Trip Advisor, this makes your positive comments mean even more. We work hard at keeping everything upto a good level for our guests and having Arrowtown and the surrounding mountains etc as our backyard does make it all that much easier, hope to see you back again soon.

I stayed here with my family this September for 2 nites and it was just so beautifull, it was clean, tidy, the room had everything you needed. Heating, electric blankets, a laundry room, there is even a swing set and a tramp that my kids enjoyed using. The gardens were amazing so were the owners, they were very friendly, recommened what we could do , places to eat and visit with little kids. Town is only a stones throw away . Everything was so easy from making the booking to checking out, there where no problems at all. I would highly recommend for anyone to stay here. I look forward to returning hopfully in the very near future.

The entire process from booking to departing was seamless, thanks to the brilliant customer service offered by our host (including providing a BBQ at short notice on a 1 degree night) The rooms are well equipped, nice and warm with electric blankets on all beds and have a nice homely feeling which is great for a 5 day stay like we had. The only small suggestion I would make would to provide a better clothes drier, it was a bit slow! Other than that very minor thing our stay was perfect, we will be back, next time in Spring to see a different side of Arrowtown as it was covered in snow for most of our stay this time.
