Arrived for six day stay on coach from Singapore. Short taxi journey (20 ringgit) from Melaka Sentral. We booked Equator Club room which we felt was well worth the extra £20 per night for all day tea/coffee, free wifi, quiet breakfast and two hour drinks and snacks each evening, the room is also very large with lounge area.
The pool area is well kept with plenty of loungers and tables and good size kiddie pool. We ate at the Seri Nyonya restaurant which was excellent and also did the short cookery course which we enjoyed.
We had two breakfasts in the main breakfast area which is very busy but good choice of food, we took our other breakfasts in the Equator Club, much quieter, some hot dishes and eggs to order.
The location is the best for shopping, being a few minutes walk from most malls, Jonker Walk is a pleasant 20 minute stroll past the museum quarter but really only comes alive at weekends.
We were very happy with our stay, no problems, no surprises.
We booked deluxe king but was upgraded to club room.
Receptionist (a few ladies) during checkin were very nice and friendly.
Interior very nice. Both level we went to (deluxe king and club room) looks new.
there were no bathtubs though in both rooms.
situated opposite bayview.
Linda from Malaysia

Very much enjoyed our stay at The Settlement. Beautiful hotel with clean, comfortable rooms and the most wonderful staff. The location is a little but away from the city centre but it's an easy long walk or easier short cab ride. The hotel offers a shuttle service but it wasn't in operation during our stay, though they did provide us taxi vouchers to get in to the city. Great hotel, would recommend!
The Family suite room was really big and spacious. There were one King bed and two queen beds. Breakfast was simple but nice. The hotel is quite new and therefore no facilities or room service yet. Overall experience with the hotel was a nice one.
