The Somerset in Hobart was excellent for two people's stay. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The position on the wharf was terrific with access to very good eating facilities and other highlights.

Great location, spacious and comfortable rooms, and very friendly and helpful staff made this a perfect choice for our three night stay in Hobart. Our car was easily parked at no cost, using the parking provided by the hotel, and the location made it perfect for walking all over the city. I will definitely stay here when next in Hobart.

Lovely and clean loft one bedroom units. Good space, decent sized kitchen and full laundry available in the decent sized bathroom. Foxtel is a bonus!! Easy walk to the all key tourist spots and quality restaurants Hobart has to offer on the Pier.

The two floor apartment well equipped, light and comfortable King Size beds. Sufficient of furniture and space to relax. Any meals offered by the next door restaurant to your room. The town of Hobart less charming.

Stayed here with my partner for a short stay. The apartment was a loft one bedroom executive, nothing executive about it, very simple. Our apartment had a 3/4 window with the view of the enclosed pier dock. If you wanted a better more open view or a balcony which is allocated on the other side of the hotel you had...

Location on the pier is great. Parking is non existent and very poor. Also walls to rooms are paper thin, you can hear the neighbours at night. However, the closeness to constitution dock and restaurants makes for an ok place to stay.

Perfectly located on the port of Hobart, cross the ferry terminal to MONA ! Very central for tourism. Rooms are big, washing machine and dryer are in the apartment. The only negative point is noise of your neighbors! Rooms have bad insulation and you will share the tv program of the room next to yours! Don't forget your hearplugs

We deliberately chose to stay here as we wanted to feel part of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race finish, the New Years Fireworks and The Taste Festival. The location was absolutely magnificent and totally exceeded our expectations. Fantastic restaurants below and close by and a 3 minute to the Taste and Salamanca. We had read in previous reviews that...
