The location of Somerset on the Pier is awesome. The view over Constitution dock impressive and only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. My two concerns with this establishment which may impact some guests.....bedroom upstairs, but the only bathroom and toilet were downstairs and the fact we had two heavy suitcases that we could not lift upstairs, consequently leaving them in the living room.

This is a good hotel to stay for a few nights since the location of this hotel is wonderful. It has a car park and big room for 4 persons with cooking facilities and nice window views of the harbours and the city. The service is excellent. I stay there twice during a trip in December 2019 travelling around the Tasmania from south to north. I still remember the nice meal at the seafood restaurant just next to the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel without hesitation. I will be back if I visit Tasmania again some days.

From the moment we arrived we received exceptional service - a friendly check-in, above and beyond with assistance cleaning up a breakage, and great suggestions for food options. Our beautifully laid out mezzanine style room overlooked the water with a cosy balcony protected from the wind, close to everything with ample living space. Perfect for a couples getaway.

We stayed at Somerset on the Pier for my wife's birthday and our anniversary when visiting Hobart. It is a great central location with plenty of dining and drinking options basically at the doorstep. Only a short walk to the Hobart CBD and most tours start at very nearby locations. Probably the only negative is that the hotel could do with a refurbishment of the rooms, they are getting a bit worn and tired. If the premises were done up it would probably be the best in Hobart.

Great position on the pier. Staying here made my stay in Hobart. As a solo traveller I was made to feel very welcome. I had no need to hire a car as everything was right outside my door. Hop on/off bus, airport bus, Mona ferry, Salamanca place, information centre, cafes. Beautiful views overlooking the water and boats on the marina. I would recommend staying here
