“Cannot fault”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Everything was just right from the professional welcome to the attractive well equipped and well designed comfortable clean units. Wi-Fi, newspapers, laundry facilities etc were all included at no extra cost. A great location with a short walk to the village centre. We wish we stayed longer.

My wife and I stayed at Settlers for two nights in Feb, along with our son and his fiancee. Comfortable, quiet, well designed and appointed, close to everything but not on the main street, clean, etc, etc. The main thing to recommend this motel though is the attention to guest comfort, friendliness, and professionalism shown by the proprietors. Towels to use at the town's hot springs, small but adequate kitchen facilities, even band-aids and fly spray in the cupboards! We'll stay there again for sure.

We stayed for a night at Settlers and were impressed by both the room and the attentiveness of the owner, who personally showed us to the room and explained features. Alan also provided maps and explanation of what was in town. In a quiet side street - so traffic is not an issue.

Had a great stay at Settlers , this motel is perfect. The hosts are very proffessional and friendly. I would recommend to anyone, after 30 years of travelling around NZ for business and pleasure this accomodation rates in my top 5.
The location is perfect for walking to many resturants and bars.

The site of the Motel was perfect, being on the edge of town and thus both close enough to walk to town but further enough to escape the noise. The room was of a high level of comfort, with plenty of space. The staff were very friendly and were very available to assist. Would definitely recommend the motel and would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Back room has a nice outdoor area for breakfasts and lunches.

After a whirlwind few days bouncing around the greater area of the Canterbury Plains, our final two days were in Hanmer Springs. We stayed at the the Settlers, and it was lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room layout and facilities fantastic, and it was a very short wander onto the main drag where the restaurants were and most importantly the hot springs.

I would go back there without hesitation
