This is my second time staying at Somerset on the Pier. Loved it the first time and wasn't disappointed! It is so close to everything, within walking distance of Salamanca Place and many great places to eat. The balcony was great, sitting there with a champagne and cheese platter looking out across the water. The rooms are spacious and clean...

The Somerset on The Pier is located in a wonderful central location, conveniently located opposite the pier where the MONA ferry departs. The apartments are spacious and very well appointed. The bedroom is in the mezzanine above the living room. What we loved was the balcony with large sliding doors, where you could relax in the afternoon and watch the...

We spent 4 days and couldn't ask for a better place to stay! The unit was nicely furnished and very comfortable. The washer and dryer in the second bathroom was a god send. Staying here in the middle of the dock area was central to everything. We parked the car and only used it once in four days...walked everywhere else....

The room is perfect, the hotel is brilliantly located, the view is spectacular and the amenities are exactly what you want. Sitting on the balcony overlooking Constitution dock os a wonderful experience. Recommend to couples, families or business travellers.

We stayed Hobart and nearby for 4 days in Feb. We loved this apartment so much with its nice view at the sea, our children were even more excited when they see the long staircase linked the sitting room to the bedrooms. It locates very near to the cafes (but we could not hear any noise at all! Our rooms...

We came here for a bit of luxury after a long wet 6 day walk and weren't disappointed. I've stayed here before and wasn't disappointed this time. We had an extra bed for the third member of our group. The staff were very helpful. The room was clean and the view engaging. The bathroom is large with a washing machine...

Dear Patricia F, Thank you for your lovely review. I was delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at Somerset on the Pier. You’re right in that we are completely spoilt when it comes to the restaurants and bars that surround us. I trust that you were able to follow your nose and discover some of Hobart’s great...

We loved this place. Room with a view of the boats. Peaceful. Clean room. Friendly reception staff.Good kitchenette. We did not find the split level a problem. Walking distance to eateries & Salamanca markets which is good as the street parking patrolman are pretty eager to fine expired meters. Even just1 minute! Thumbs down to Hobart for that.
