My friends and I had a really warm welcome from Jane in the evening when we arrived. She was absolutely helpful, made sure that we were comfortable and recommended us places to visit and eat at for a lovely stay in Arrowtown. Our cottage has 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. Everything was clean and...

The Settlers Cottage Motel is just a short stroll into town. Our cottage was clean and comfortable. The new owners, Jane and Carl, are great hosts, very warm and friendly people. We would definitely stay here again. Very good value for money.

We loved everything about our 3 night stay here. Large 2 bedroom cottage with hot shower, comfy beds with electric blankets and good Wifi. The teenagers were happy. Good heater too so we were warm. Very friendly resident cat. Owner Jane was super helpful. We sat in the sun on the outdoor furniture with cups of tea or glasses of...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Settlers Cottage Motel. The cottages have a lovely country atmosphere about them and are situated in a quiet street. It was lovely and relaxing to sit on the outdoor furniture at the front of our cottage and enjoy the early evening. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful.

Just scraped a 4 blob we would probably rate it 3.5 if that was an option. We were greeted by Pauline who was covering whilst the owners were on holiday. She was very friendly and helpful. Our cottage was kitted out in 1950's style which is the theme of the place which was quaint. However, net curtains were very grubby...

I would recommend Settlers to everyone. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable. Early settler style inside and out. Owners are really welcoming and friendly. Our cottage was bathed in sunlight, and the outdoor furniture made for very pleasant evenings outside with a wine.

Carl and Jayne made us feel very welcome and did everything they could to make our stay as good as possible. They were friendly and helpful. Their lovely little cottages are well equip with kitchen, living area, bath room and outside gardens - if the weather is good enough. We truly enjoyed it and will be back next time in...

Lovely looking hotel from the outside. Warm welcome. Very convenient to the beautiful village. But the decor in the room was very outdated. Clearly in need of an update. Uncomfortable, lumpy bed. Tiny "kitchenette". And if you're going to have a television in the room, perhaps provide one that doesn't need binoculars to view it with. Overall, somewhat disappointing for...

A comfy bed and decent shower in a charming motel done in early settler style with a lovely garden and 300 metres from the town centre Karl was a friendly and engaging host and even lent us pans to gave a go at gold panning. We had a spacious 1 bedroom unit. Would definitely stay here again, great value.
