Have stayed here before and really enjoyed my stay again. The location is fantastic - right on the Hobart waterfront and close to Salamanca Place and all the eateries. Quite happy this time to face towards Salamanca Place with a cheaper room - not as good a view as the other way but still very pleasant. Rooms are very spacious...

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,...

Dear Robert B, Thank you for your review. Due to the nature of our unique location, we can on occasion inherit some noise along the Pier, you’re absolutely right.

The hotel is situated on one of the actual piers that go out into the harbour, probably had another use in the day but has been expertly converted into a hotel with restaurants underneath. Inside it has a kitchen for cooking and a lounge with a balcony looking into the harbour with sailing boats etc moored just metres away. A...

Dear David C, Thank you for your wonderful review. The unique loft-style design of our Somerset Apartments stem from the conversion of a 1930s pier building, so you’re absolutely correct in that it has been “expertly converted”. I was so delighted to read that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and that you were impressed by the overall design. Thank you...

The location of this apartment style hotel is simply wonderful, conveniently located to Salamanca market & Hobart's CBD. It never got very noisy on Fri or Sat nights, so we were able to get a good night's sleep. Staff were very pleasant & attentive to our needs. Rooms were clean. Whilst the loft bedroom was a novelty at first, it...

Beautiful apartment on the pier in Hobart - right at the centre and only a short walk to the bar / restaurant area of Salamanca Square at Battery Point. Great location for experiencing what central Hobart has to offer.

We enjoyed our stay at Somerset apartments with really large spacious rooms and a superb location. Plenty of restaurants and tourist activities within a short walk, the location made our stay in Hobart! Service from all staff we encountered was excellent. The bedroom upstairs made it nice and dark, great for sleeping. We were on the very end of the...

We have stayed here on numerous occasions. The location is convenient. We stayed for 3 nights on this occasion and only used our car once. The property is on the beautiful Hobart waterfront, within walking distance to Salamanca markets, Battery Point and the city shops. Excellent restaurants nearby.

This aparthotel is in the perfect location for the major sights. One star off because parking might be a bit tricky however we managed to find a place eventually. The rooms are great and have everything you need.We loved being right on the harbour and just by the TMag and ferry to MONA. Perfect.

Great views, located near the MONA ferry terminal and short walk to Salamanca Place, friendly staff. We have been here several times and is our favourite accommodation in Hobart.. It is especially fun during the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race.
