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.

Had a great 2 night stay at the Settlers Motor Inn last weekend . Great location to local shops and sights . When we were leaving on departure morning , as we drove out of the motel, we realized management had washed our windscreen as a complimentary, which was not only a lovely gesture but really helpful as it needed it after seeing the sights via dirt roads. My only suggestion would be to include a few plates and bowls and cutlery for take away .

I am quite fussy and we had not booked any accommodation. We looked at 3 other motels (went inside Queen/King rooms) and Settlers Motor Inn was definitely the stand out - clean, tidy, great value for money, extremely comfortable king size bed, within walking distance to town centre, good size rooms, easy parking in front of room and the owners Sharon & Barry made us feel extremely welcome. We stayed 3 nights in a king room and will definitely stay again. Sharon, Barry & all the staff where very friendly & helpful, as new owners they have done an amazing job and it is easy to see they have put their heart & soul into the motel, we felt like we where staying with old friends.
Would highly recommend, you will not be disappointed 😊

Wow what a wonderful motel and Sharon and Barry are lovely hosts that can’t do enough for you. The king bed was so comfortable, the room was spotless, the shower wonderful and hot. The coffee and tea supplied in the room were good quality brands, it was great to have individual soap and shampoo in the bathroom instead of canisters on the wall. The in house menu looked nice and very reasonably priced. Very easy walk to the main part of town. Will definitely be raving about our stay and recommending Settlers Motor Inn to everyone.

Chose this motel on the basis of other reviews which raved about its cleanliness which is very important to me. Yes it was clean enough but our room was quite old. It smelt of stale cigarette smoke which was disappointing and even though surfaces and bedding seemed clean, there were many cobwebs on the ceilings and corners that scared the kids. Had to squish a spider and some mosquitoes that liked to hang around the door frame outside. The owner/operator was friendly and obliging and we were surprised to see that they had some Tesla car chargers in the car bays. Pricing was reasonable for what was offered. Cleanish but time for some renovations, especially if trying to attract the Tesla crowd!

A spotlessly clean sleeping and bath room was the first impression I got. As it turned out, the bed was also first class and the stay experience over one night was perfect. Dinner is available at the motel (though did not use that), and a generous cooked breakfast was supplied as an option with extra charge. The operators obviously put in a lot of hard work to keep their clients satisfied.

The owners are really friendly and helpful, gave lots of suggestions of things to see and do. The pool was a great benefit for the kids after a big day of exploring. Very clean and spacious rooms. Also having undercover parking was a great feature in summer.

New owners were very welcoming and went out of their way to assist us in our hour of need to find a room urgently without a booking. The room was clean and bed was comfy. Morning breakfast was great too. Highly recommend!

Motel is advertised as having the best beds and it’s true! A proper Queen ensemble with pillow top mattress. Slept like a dream. Also loved the double recliner lounge for relaxing and watching tv. The shower was great, steady stream of hot water. Husband is tall and said the rose too low and didn’t fit under it. The pool is not heated and not long enough to do laps but good to cool off and relax after a long drive. Couldn’t connect to wifi. Hosts tried rebooting but it didn’t fix the problem. Room attendant forgot to leave bath towels in room. Host was surprised and questioned their absence several times which I thought was odd.

Lovely service on arrival and east to deal with. The room was neat and tidy and the on-site meals hit the spot well enough.
Any questions were answered by the managers and we would likely drop by again and stay here if we were to visit Tenterfield in the future.

A group of 12 stayed for 3 nights on our golf trip recently, when our usual on course accommodation was booked out. Barry and Sharon were so helpful and accommodating with our motley crew - nothing was too much trouble.

The rooms are spacious and clean, and location wise it is great - an easy walk up to the pubs and restaurants in the middle of town. The EV charging stations were very handy.

We are pet friendly because we allow you to bring your pet as long as it sleeps in your car, we have many people with dogs and cats who stay here and their pets stay in the car at night.
