We had a fantastic two night stay at Settlers. The room was clean and well appointed. The hosts were very engaging and friendly. There was a very informative guide portfolio which have details of all local attractions and restaurants. The motel is very central to the town centre and the hot pools.

We stayed at settlers this week and it was absolutely beautiful! Brett and Sally are the best hosts, the room was lovely and being just a few minutes walk to the pools and city centre is the perfect location. I would highly highly recommend a stay there, we will defiantly be back!
