I sent in a previous review but on reflection the check in was thorough if not a bit long but the service was excellent, units spotless and quiet. A little tired looking but clean.

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay - Settlers Motel, Turangi has never been a handicap impaired advertised motel so I can understand if you did not enjoy your stay. I would have liked to phone you to apologise however your post stay review has come in as anonymous which means I can not do this.
