“Settlers Cottage Arrowtown”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

3 adjacent cottages fitted our diverse family, another nearby gave ample space of kitchen, dining room, and space for socialising. Very suitable décor, warm and cosy - and welcoming hosts . Quiet also

I booked 4 rooms for a week for a combo of 9 family members visiting from Australia. Having separate self contained rooms worked fantastically well as we had different age groups from 6 - 85 and everyone felt as thought they had their own space to retire to between the busy trips and events of festival week.
Overall out stay was faultless and the location was perfect on a quiet street only 2 blocks from the town centre.

Room Tip: Winter sun was very good in the front corner rooms. Really pleasant.

We felt we had stepped back in time when we walked into our unit at Settlers Cottage Motel in Arrowtown, with it's in-character decor. We had our own little porch with wisteria growing along the verandah - a perfect spot for lunch. The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom would have benefited from extra towel rails and an extractor fan over the cooking hob would have been good. A lovely spot to stay, though, and very friendly helpful owners.

Arrowtown has an olde worlde 'wow' factor; and Settlers Cottages fit right in to that ambience. As one other reviewer has said, if you want the cookie cutter experience, you should go elsewhere; every one else, pull in and just relax.

The location to the main shopping and dining strip is good - a short, pleasant walk - which allows one to enjoy that extra glass of wine with dinner.

Being there in autumn gave us the benefit of the kaleidoscope of colours but nestled in the folds of the surrounding hills, it would be picturesque at any time of year.

Our host was friendly and laid back and very happy to have a chat. If one looks for issues, one will always find them, but hey, aren't you on holiday?

We were VERY pleased with our decision to stay in Arrowtown (rather than Queenstown) and Settlers was part of the overall experience.

I just love beautiful Arrowtown nestled by the hills and especially surrounded by the autumn coloured leaves. One of its treasures is all the old cottages of the village and Settlers is one of these little gems. The host, Pete is very friendly and helpful and the room was spacious, very clean and had everything you need for self catering. Highly recommend a stay.

Fits in well with Arrowtown which is a step back in history. Comfortable accommodation and friendly host, a veranda outside the room with a small lawn and lavendar hedge. If you like things 'old' with an ambience this is the place for you but if you are looking for modern keep looking. I personally loved it here, recommended.

This is a wonderful, quirky little cottage hotel that is less than a 10 min walk to town. It was immaculate, had a great ambience - wish we could have had the rooms with the " presence " as claimed by a previous post ! If you want original - stay here, if you want cookie cutter - stay at a chain. The owners take great pride in the " Settlers Cottage " Super cute and highly recommended.

Room Tip: All the cottages were lovely that we saw.
