I will begin this review with a very critical tip for anyone staying at this Hotel. Check-in for Somerset on Salamanca is at the Sister Hotel (Somerset on Pier - Approx. 10 min walk). We weren't informed of this upon booking this hotel through an online booking website. If you don't have a hire car, this is no issue as...

Stayed in Somerset on Salamanca serviced apartments 4 adults and one child. The standard of the 2 bedroom apartment was good and met our expectations. The small kitchen and the bathrooms are starting to show their age but the daily room service from staff was handy and appreciated. Parking was limited but worked out ok. The next door access to...

My family stayed for 3 nights at this hotel during December 2016. The room is as described (tired but clean and spacious) but there were two large issues we experienced during our stay. The first was a foul smell of sewage that filled the apartment on our first morning. It was so strong we had to leave the room, I...

We stayed here on a work trip, and found the location to be excellent - both close to local CBD, but situated far enough away for it to be quiet. Set in the stunning Salamanca area, the apartments were clean. Only issue was that view was directly into another building across the road, but that can't always be helped. The...

Booked room through an agent expecting a balcony and a harbour view. No balcony and view only standing in room. We arrived our room was taken given a compromise bad room. Bedroom upstairs bathroom and toilet downstairs. Very inconvenient for elderly couple. Two nights, overpriced and very average. Will not go back. Love Hobart

Dear BJ 490, Thank you for providing us with your feedback for your most recent stay. I do believe you may have stayed at our sister property Somerset on the Pier rather than Somerset on Salamanca as all apartments at Somerset on Salamanca are single level. To address your comments, I do apologise the Travel Agent you booked through did...

Bathroom and kitchen is in need of a renovation; king sized bed is 2x singles pushed together so not so great if you sleep in the middle of the bed! If you're looking to sit on the balcony with a nice drink or breakfast.. this is definitely not the place

Dear suong12345678, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We share your disappointment about your recent stay. You’re absolutely correct in that some of our rooms are fitted with king split beds. This is only so we are able to also accommodate twin bedding requests. I sincerely apologise that you didn’t find the bed in...

I really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Somerset on Salamanca. The apartment was spacious, very clean and quiet, and well appointed, including a fast and reliable complimentary wifi connection.

We were pleasantly surprised because we book apartments largely by price and ratings. The one bedroom apartment we were allocated was huge, had full kitchen, large spa bath and was well maintained. Walked out the front doors onto the restaurant precinct of Salamanca and yet our rooms were quiet and peaceful.
