Good location, very friendly and well equipped

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Location: Very well situated for the Tongariro National Park and the ultimate day hike, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing
Very welcoming owners, they really could not have done anything else to make our stay more memorable. Everything you could need was provided, a barbecue, car washing facilities and a verandah to sit out and enjoy a beer.

ok hotel near to Turangi

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: The lady owner - she seems very mean and unfriendly.
This is old but clean hotel but the old lady staff is not friendly. She never said thank you or welcome or anything. Just did the job. She didn't offend me but just a feeling that she didn't care. Other than that, nothing much to complain. However mind you water tastes a bit funny and light is quite dark. Must avoid during winter time as I know the room will be bloody cold. You have been warned!

Well maintained and silent location

I felt very comfortable as this motel is well maintained and located in a silent place. Special thanks for the good sightseeing hints which I all enjoyed. I can fully recommend Settlers Motel for short and long stays.

Will go back

Very nice people, just wish the beds would be bigger...

Thank you Greg. Sorry you found the bed a bit short but the room you booked is one of only two which have a smaller double bed instead of a Queen bed and this is why they are a little cheaper. Next time you intend to stay with us let us know you would prefer a larger bed and if possible we will put you are in a room with a bigger bed.

Great place for a fishing vacation in paradise!

Posted Dec 13, 2014
Walking distance from one of the best flyfishing rivers in the world. The facility is well set up for anglers and the owners are very helpful. We hope to return someday!

Awesome place to stay in lovely town

Posted Dec 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
We did a roadtrip for about a month and this was one of my very favourite hotels. The owners were so lovely, greeted us by name with fresh milk. The unit was lovely and toasty warm. Really loved waking up to this awesome place. Highly recommend.
