Settlers Inn Hotel is lucky enough to be located in one of Australia’s best regional coastal localities. We love our home by the beach, and we believe in being much more than a local business. We strive to be a good neighbour, too.

Since the Settlers Inn established, it has been affectionately known as Port Macquarie's favourite community Hotel. We contribute significant sponsorship funds to assist local community groups and sporting organisations and are constantly looking at new ways to engage and support.
