We visited the Settlers Arms Inn for lunch with family although the bar is small and it takes a little while to get served the food is excellent and came out in a very short time. Seating is rather old picnic tables but the setting...More

Plenty of history in the village and hotel. Very pretty and well worth a visit. But don't be surprised if you don't get decent service or welcoming staff at the hotel.

Lovely old pub, full of history. It was a perfect place to be on a cold winter's day. Sat in front of the open fire and enjoyed a delicious home cooked beef pie together with a glass of wine.

Standing by the bar I almost expect to here rural Yorkshire accents, surrounded by the dimly lit faces of people of the land. Not quite the case. The building is a beautiful historic inn hewn from sandstone by convict labor. There is no doubt that...More

Quaint, rustic and extremely pretty as the leaves turn golden. Such a nice destination for a days outing. We thought 'wow' should come and stay overnight such a lovely old building. Had high expectations. Went there recently with our Car Club and advised owners accordingly...More

After a wonderful walk of part of the Old North Road we visited the Settlers Arms Inn for a late lunch. Lovely location. Staff weren't overly interested in customer service, no smiles, no chat, nothing friendly, just the basics. Food was average - kids had...More

Established in 1836, the Settlers Arm Inn is built from convict - hewn sandstone. Surrounded by mountains, it nestles alongside the Macdonald River within the tiny village of St. Albans, the heart of the Macdonald Valley, New South Wales. Of Georgian simplicity, the hotel became a stopover for Cobb and Co. stagecoaches traveling between Sydney and Newcastle in the nineteenth century. These days the inn is an alternative gateway to the Hunter Valley wine districts for visitors from the Central Coast as well as Sydney and its environs. Travelling time to St. Albans is approximately 1.5 hours by car from these areas. The Settlers Arms Inn is not only popular with day trippers but provides Accommodation comprising four doubles, all with en-suite. Australian Country - style cuisine is available seven day a week. Outdoor activities may involve tennis at the courts across the way, swimming and relaxing in our 12 metre saltwater pool, bike riding, golf at Wisemans Ferry, or just ambling along a country road. Entertainment is provided on Sundays in the rear garden with a jazz band, in the non-Summer months. Open fireplaces add warmth and atmosphere to dining and imbibing in the cooler months.
