“Beautiful spot, great accom near Springs.”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

A fabulous spot, clean and modern - well set out for a family of 4. Friendly helpful staff. The only draw-back was an issue with the hot water, which they were working on when we left. Would highly recommend it for all.

After a huge drive from Queenstown we arrived to find a comfortable room. Although the place was a little dated it was generally clean, comfortable and tidy. One of the only places we stayed with free wifi. Insect replellant in the bathroom, free dvds.
We would recommended this accomodation as good value for money and friendly. We would stay there again.

If you looking for a motel that goes that little bit more, try Settlers. They provide lots of things normally not expected such as free wifi, video rental, towels to springs and a well fitted out kitchen. Very relaxing place to stay.

Lovely clean, comfortable rooms, but it was the service that made the stay excellent! Nothing was too much trouble for Alan & Vivian, the caretakers, including prioritzing the cleaning of our rooms for our early arrival. They also provide a lot of extras for free that other motels charge for - free wifi, free laundry, towels for the spa, good coffee. Have earned our repeat custom.

Reviewed 21 December 2011

Based on a one-night stay, Settlers does everything you'd expect from a standard NZ motel but does it much better than average. The room was reasonably roomy for a studio, well-furnished and spotlessly clean with up to date fittings. The bed was firm and the bathroom had all the required amenities including an excellent shower. There was a great, easy to use WiFi service. The proprietor was friendly, helpful and efficient - he suggested some places to eat and pointed us in the direction of the hot pools (a short walk but unfortunately closed for a staff function). We were on our way through to a mountain walk near Fairlie so couldn't linger but really liked the look and feel of Hanmer and hope to come back for a more leisurely stay. Settlers would be a good and not too expensive option for a longer visit.
