The rooms are great, had a lovely night sleep, it is right on the harbour close to Salamanca Markets and plenty of restaurants to choose from, staff are friendly and assisted us with early check in and even took our bags to our rooms.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 March 2017

We enjoyed staying in these spacious, comfortable serviced apartments. A brilliant location to explore Hobart, Salamanca etc as situated right on the pier, loved looking at the water and the boats! The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially Shelley. One morning a tour trip failed to pick us up and when Shelley kindly rang to check for us,...

Excellent location. Friendly staff. We stayed at the Family Premier Apartment. Comfy beds and the apartment is well-maintained. The kitchenette is useful, though there is only one cooking pot and pan. The washing machine and dryer are useful. Only issue is that there is only 5 parking spaces right outside the hotel, other ones are slightly far, but manageable.

The loft apartment hotel I felt was overpriced for what you actually received. The location is the best and that would be my number one reason for staying here. The windows in the room are half so you have to stand next to them to look out at the view.The bathroom is downstairs so if you need it in middle...

We have just got back from our trip to Hobart and spent three nights at Somerset on the Pier. We arrived early Friday morning and were able to store our bags until our room was ready to check in. We hired a car from the airport and the hotel provided us with a parking permit to park in a carpark...

Great location by the pier with harbour view within walking distance to several restaurants. Spacious duplex and kitchen which is great for families. Wifi was somewhat slow but otherwise highly recommend if visiting Hobart.

Assigned to room 8 at the Somerset. Had asked for one double and two single beds and this is what we got. Beds very comfortable. All facilities (Cooking, Clothes washing, Bathroom etc) worked fine. All staff extremely friendly and helpful. Lovely views across the harbor from our Lounge room.

Excellent location, good service, easy access to all things Hobart. Some of the facilities were getting a little tired, such as worn carpet, but this didn't detract from the overall comfort. If you need to park your car, it's not as convenient as some other accommodation in town, and is out in the open. Rooms not overly-well sound proofed, as...

A great central location to explore all there is in Hobart. A few things lacking in this experience - the deal braker for me was the stairs!
