Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment - great location, service was good. All we expected here for 3 people. Would stay again if we go to LHI again. We had room H 11 which was near he front. Liked the transport to restaurants, and walking distance to beaches and shops.

It is one of the cheapest options on the island. But you know what? Service: great! We did not have any issues, the service was fantastic, friendly and helpful. We could have not made our research, the guys told us everything about the island when they picked us up from the airport. Our place was clean, no issues there. Quality...

I have just returned from a lovely holiday in Lord Howe Island with a group of friends. Somerset Apartments are in an excellent central location - easy to walk to most places to swim, eat or bushwalk. The grounds are very well maintained, especially considering the dry conditions at the moment. The units are spacious and comfortable. It is run...

If you are ready to leave your cell phone at home, Lord Howe is the place to go. Somerset Apartments are within walking distance to the beaches, bicycle rental, the Anchorage restaurant, and Thompson's grocery store. Our apartment had a spacious living area with kitchenette, separate bedroom and bathroom. With no phones in the room, each day we went to...

Setting is in attractive gardens and the location central with staff very helpful and friendly. It is close to the Anchorage Cafe/Restaurant/Bar and to the Lagoon where the Boat Sheds are located for you to arrange snorkelling trips etc. It is a similar distance to Ned's Beach and other walks on the other side of the island. The provision of...

We stayed at Somerset Apartments for a week in October 2016. We found the 3 bedroom apartment to be well presented, very spacious and conveniently located for many of the LHI attractions (Ned's beach, the lagoon, Anchorage bar and restaurant, the burger bar, etc). Plus, the kitchen was well enough equipped for making a couple of home cooked meals. We...

After we arrived at our unit, we never saw anyone again during our stay - the office always seemed to be unattended. We found our apartment in need of many repairs, and one day had no hot water for over 5 hours - until someone apparently changed the gas cylinders.

Hello, Thank you for your review of Somerset apartments. Our office is open 9-4.30 with 24 hour phone access to our private residences. We are self catering apartments and not a hotel with 24 hour reception. Your review reads similar to a previous and we are inclined to think you may have been travelling together. We hope you enjoyed beautiful...

Somerset Apartments are in a great location, so close to Neds Beach (our favourite), Lagoon Beach, PO, Wilsons Bike Hire & all the Boat Trip People. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
