On arrival at hotel we were greeted by a friendly lady who was very helpful about amenities at the hotel, the local area and travel time to the Inter Island Ferry Terminal. Our room was spacious and parking was in front of the unit. We used the washing facilities to get all our washing done. There is a street nearby...

Enjoyed a surprise find - the Cafe at Settlers in Petone. Set in the historic Alfred Coles house , we had good service and great food ins lovely atmosphere. Parking on site and easy access with an elderly relative. Loved the tea served in real teapots with knitted cosi's and fine china cups. Very happy.

The Settler Motor Lodge is a really good example of how a dated interior lodge - can still be practical and comfortable. The lodges have a cute quaint outside. Although the interior bathroom is dated - it is clean and well maintained. Situated close to Pak n Save and Jackson Street it is a good location for a few nights....

We booked here as there was nothing available in the city. What a find. The rooms were clean and comfortable and excellent value. The super bonus was we were collected from the bus stop and later on dropped to the pub! Location was handy to shops and public transport. Hidden gem.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Settlers Motor Lodge for the weekend of the Edinburgh Tattoo. Unfortunately we were away for that weekend otherwise we would have offered to drop you down to the station in our shuttle van. We are pleased that our minders advised you of the park and ride option.

It may be strange that I give this motel a 5 star review when it is not the top end type accommodation but it a motel I keep returning to. The reasons I return is that it is handy, clean, comfortable and service friendly & helpful. Handy to the motorway that leads into Wellington city (Just 5minutes away) yet away...
