This was my second visit to LHI. On this occasion I had a one bedroom apartment at Somerset Apartments. The apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable. A public phone is located in the Transit lounge if you have to ring outside the island. Gay was very accommodating in running visitor to restaurants when needed. I left my charger in the...

Somerset apartments are perfectly located between Ned's beach and Lagoon Beach. A close walk to Anchorage Restaurant and general store. This is a good location if someone in your group is unable to ride a bike to get around. The apartments have a basic decor but are very clean and have everything you need for your stay. Sleeping at night...

Somerset is a 5 minute walk from town and the main lagoon beach and only 10 mins to Neds beach - ie close to everything. Rooms very dated but if you don't care bout décor they are perfectly fine. We had a separate living area to the bedroom and a big balcony under the trees. Gas cooking inside, bbq's outside....

So you are off to LHI.It might be a small island but a 3 hour Chase'n Thyme bus tour at Day 1 allows you to plan your activities-walks, boat tours, evening eating and bike hire. Its not just a case of doing....weather limits boat trips, swimming, and bike riding, difficulty of walks mandates planning, everything must be booked including eating...

Somerset apartments are well presented and clean - the cane furniture seats are really comfortable and we dragged these outside onto the verandah. Apartments are set in a tropical palm garden and have cooking facilities with adequate crockery. Staff are friendly. Good BBQ and laundry facilities and transit lounge on departure day is great. Property is located perfectly between the...

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.
