We have stayed at the Settlers Motel several times and have always found it first class. Excellent rooms, always very clean and good quality furnishings. Nice touches like wi-fi, toiletries, towels for the pools etc. Very courteous reception! I would recommend to anyone stopping over in Hanmer

A high standard of motel accommodation, ideally located for visiting the spa town of Hanmer Springs. Well maintained and serviced with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are air conditioned with all the necessary facilities required for those on tour within New Zealand. Just a couple of minutes walk from the Hanmer Spring spa pools and a couple of minutes more to the town, shops and restaurants. Perfect stopover.

Room Tip: Ground floor is handy if you have lots of luggage to move around.

We are glad you enjoyed your stopover at Settlers and yes we are nice and handy to everything but still tucked away for a peaceful stay. The air conditioning is very handy at this time as we experience some late summer heat.

Such a haven of peace! A restful get-away, we will be booking again! Nana and the girls had a wonderful time. The place was gorgeous and the girls enjoyed the DVD selection while Nana and loved the towel service to the hot pools

We stayed one night at Settlers to experience the hot pools. The ground floor room was mid-sized and very comfortable, and we'd have been happy to stay a few days here. Room and bathroom were well-appointed, well-maintained, and very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette was well equipped to handle most meals. The location was great, just off the main street for quietness, but only a few minutes walk to the pools and town centre. Towels were supplied to take to the pools. Sally was very helpful, even recommending a place for lunch as we travelled on the next day.

A random selection but a lovely surprise. Free WiFi & videos- a winner
Hostess could not have been more helpful and caring
Comfortable, clean, close to town centre.
I don't have any more words to say but this fills up the 200 characters

Room Tip: We were on ground floor, Easy access.

Sally and Allan were fantastic on reception and organising things. Towels for the Thermal Pools, milk for the fridge and above all good wi-fi. We have been in NZ for tow weeks and the wi-fi has been dire - this was a delightful change - free and very good. Room was very good, clean and well laid out. A good place to stop.

Very high standard of accommodation, spotlessly clean with everything you might need included. Reception and service were friendly and helpful, giving good advice about walks that can be taken directly from the motel entrance. You can walk from here through a beautiful forest walk right up to Conical Hill....about a 90 minute tramp but worth every second for the beautiful views from the top.

Really can't praise these people enough for their efforts. Example....someone noticed that we were using every electrical socket for IPads, phones, CPAP machines etc......and a power bar was conveniently left for us that day without our even asking. Small things, but so indicative of their thoughtfulness.
