The original section of this beautiful Heritage Colonial hotel was built in 1845 and has seen a vast businesses operations within its walls. If those walls could talk they would surely have many a story given that it was originally one of the en-route stops to the goldfields in the gold rush days. Accommodation varies from modern early 2000's construction to the Heritage style rooms situated in our rear courtyard offering a lovely sense of yesteryear comfort. The new owners opened the restaurant areas in late Oct/Nov 2015 and offer quality value for money meals in a beautiful and unique atmosphere, complete with air-conditioning in the summer and warm, inviting open fireplace in the winter. Various weekend entertainment is held most weekends for the enjoyment of our guests and townspeople alike. The Historic York town is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or family trip. Given that we are only about 1 hours drive from Perth, Settlers House York is the perfect place for your stay or take the short drive for a weekend lunch in our shady courtyard. We look forward to seeing you "settle in at Settlers"...

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here on one of the hottest days on record in Perth (Feb 9th) Aircon in the room was so icy cool though and the beds were comfortable! The meal we had at the restaurant was delicious and so filling! There was some local live music on too. York is such an underrated little spot not far from Perth and Settler's House is great comfort and value for money if you want to stay right in town.

The room was dirty with one window covered in cobwebs including the bath tub complete with a daddy long legs. The carpet was very badly stained. I rang and spoke to a female and advised the state of the room and requested a refund as we had found alternate accommodation for the night. Female stated that the room had not been used for a while and as I had not given her the chance to offer us another room then she would not be refunding the money. The whole motel looked rundown, pool empty and dried up garden beds. Very disappointing for such a beautiful town

The rooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped, located in a convenient part of town. Reasonably priced. The rooms weren't huge and appeared bigurw in the pictures. Staff were friendly and was nice to listen to live music in the beer garden over dinner.

This place is a joke, and is letting the town down. This was a complimentary stay offered to us after our awful first time. Upon our arrival, Jenny was in the middle of dealing with another guest’s problem in that they couldn’t get into their room, literally- the lock was broken. So they were moved to another, without the spa bath they had booked- needless to say they were not impressed. At 39 degrees outside, we were keen to get the air con going. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to be working. My partner had a look and noticed the filters were filthy so removed and cleaned. Air con worked after this. In the bar, we were told the wine we ordered had gone up from the price in the menu- seems they’ didn’t have time to change the prices.’ We suggested that we will be paying the advertised price. Finally, when ready for sleep, we pulled the rug back to find blood stains on it. Ahh!!! Never again, sorry.

Went for the Medieval festival today took the family for a meal thought the Settlers House would be good, how wrong were we as with it being so busy they just weren’t able to cope we waited for nearly an hour before our food was even cooked, asked for a refund but was politely told it’s already getting cooked, kept being asked for our table number and we had to keep saying there is no number and the waitress came out to see what table and realised there is no number after the 3rd time. Sorry but we won’t be coming back. Very incompetent.

While not staying at Settlers House myself, I had made a booking for elderly relatives. I cannot thank Stacey and her staff enough for the trouble they went to, in assisting me with multiple date changes and ensuring the right room was selected for my aging relatives. Special mention must be made of Kylie and Callum, for going above and beyond to help me and my family out. Thank you all very much.

A Xmas in July event, we had a wonderful evening, the entertainment was fantastic and so was the dinner. Really, really good value and our room was excellent. York is an interesting and historic town and Settlers House is well situated approximately in the middle of the Main Street.

Our stay at Settlers house was disappointing. The location is perfect right in the centre of town with privet parking. Shame our room was infested with ants, I understand ants are hard to control but vacuuming the carpets would be a good place to start. Our bed didn’t have a head board, which made me Very uncomfortable knowing the level of bugs in the room. I woke up groggy, needing a coffee I open the cupboard looking for the mugs and to my horror I see the ants have claimed the mugs and spoons, not the best start to my day, I have a shower, unable to remove shower head or lower shower head I have to wash my hair. Shame I couldn’t dry it though, no hair dryer provided which I thought was rather unfair untill my husband tried to get a shower and no more than a trickle came out, standing there in the nude in absolute despair how a paying customer cannot even enjoy the facilities they have paid for he tries the taps, no nothing not even a trickle in the tap. Did they shut the water off? Was the water pressure low ? Not a soul in sight to ask. Luckily the kettle had water in it from the previous guests so he tripped that into the sink and had a flannel wash. We left, annoyed shocked and cold from wet hair and a shivering flannel wash. Settlers house is a beautiful historic building with a lovely pub in the centre of it all, unfortunately the lack of care in the rooms for guests let me down.

Spent a night here as a midway point of a two day motorcycle trip around the outskirts of Perth. Pretty happy to be honest, it’s a great location within easy walking distance to the main drag of York and ample parking. Room was a good size, nice and clean and well appointed with everything that you need with a kettle, toaster, microwave etc. Nice comfy bed too 👍🏼
