We were fortunate enough to book The Cottage for two nights. The most amazing experience for us. Cold weather - open fire, double glazed windows, cosy doona and bed. What more could we ask for! Peacefulness, birds, outside bath, great kitchen, outside sitting area...the list goes on and the beautiful accommodation is difficult to fault. It was a joy to spend time there and we thoroughly recommend this property for couples.

5/5 Excellent

The Settlers Motel is situated in an ideal position within a couple of minutes walk to the pools, restaurants and shops. The lady on reception was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The room was a good size, the kitchen and bathroom very good with all requirements provided. The shower was excellent. Being situated just off the main road going through Hanmer the motel was very quiet.
