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.
