I recommend Somerset on the Pier for the amazing location and views. The self contained kitchenette and laundry facilities make it so easy to have a longer stay as there is so much to see and do in Hobart and the surrounding areas. Loved the Seafood Chowder at Fish Frenzy just one of the many restaurants located downstairs on the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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,...

Had a wonderful stay. Not cheap but at the time of booking most of the Hobart accommodation was expensive. Premium apartments have a small balcony with floor to ceiling windows on the main level and a mezzanine level where the bed is located. Premium rooms also face north which is great for light during the autumn, winter and spring seasons....

We stayed here for our honeymoon and the room was fantastic. Beds were super big and comfortable! Staff were very helpful and friendly. Great location! My only advice would be if you have a car, there is not many parking spots so be prepared to walk.

The hotel is centrally located on a pier near the Constitution dock, not far from Central Hobart, and definitely centrally located to see many of the "must see" sights in the city. The accommodation is large, clean, comfortable, a handy kitchenette available, spacious sitting room, lovely views of the waterways and docks, the bedroom upstairs, unfortunately the spacious bathroom is...

We stayed at the apartment for 5 nights. The two story apartment has the two bedrooms and shared bathroom upstairs with another bathroom and lounge and kitchenette downstairs. The balcony looks out over Constitution Dock which is just gorgeous. It has all the amenities you might need however there is only heating/cooling available downstairs via what looks like a somewhat...

From start to finish this accommodation made a short stay in Hobart memorable. Nothing too much trouble, relaxed and friendly staff. Room was clean and being able to watch the boats coming in and out from the balcony was delightful. Excellent, large bathrooms made them perfect for our girls trip. The location on the harbour is ideal for ambience in...

Balcony room has great views across Constitution Dock and North Hobart even though the balcony is rather tiny! Comfortable though fan in bedroom ran high speed. Good to have washing facilities and small kitchen to put excellent Tassie cheese and wine in, to enjoy late afternoon.
