Location says it all. Nowhere better to stay in Hobart. Little bit expensive but you would have to expect that for the location alone. Premier room is definitely worth the little bit extra. Very nice room.
Good afternoon Katrina, Thank you for leaving your feedback for us. We are pleased to hear that you loved being right on the Hobart waterfront as much as we do! We look forward to welcoming you back for another stay at Somerset on the Pier in the future! Kind regards, Connor - Guest Service Supervisor.
Great location and staff, room was just terribly expensive.”
The room was very overpriced. Cheap fittings, no air conditioning, and the hotel itself doesn't have any special facilities to justify the price (no included breakfast or pool or bar). It was a nice view though and the room was definitely large, more like a loft apartment.
Good afternoon Ilya and thank you for leaving your feedback. We deeply apologise for your experience being of a lesser standard than expected. However we are glad to hear that you could enjoy our location and views which are certainly hard to replicate in Hobart. Ilya, it is very disappointing to see you had not enjoyed your stay with us as thoroughly as hoped and do hope we can welcome you back on another occasion to raise your stay experience. Warm Regards, Bua - Guest Service
Its right on the waterfront with access to great restaurants and Salamanca Market. Sadly the parking is away from the hotel which isn't good when it rains. The bed is upstairs with no view of that waterfront and no ventilation. It is very clean and well presented but your better in another hotel if you want the views
Good afternoon tony, Thank you for leaving a review for us on Agoda. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us here at Somerset on the Pier. We do hope that we can welcome you back to Somerset on the Pier in the future. Kind regards, Connor - Guest Service Supervisor.
Great location. ”
Loved the location and view. We were walking distance from all the restaurants and holidays attaractions that interested us. The only unfortunate part about our stay was we were unlucky enough to get a room with only a window looking out over the water. The rooms next to us all had balconies with full glass walls. Felt like we missed out!
Good morning Melissa, Thank you for leaving your feedback via Agoda! We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are truly lucky to be located right on the Hobart waterfront and are glad that you found our location convenient and to your liking! If you do stay with us again, make sure you book our One-Bedroom Premier for a balcony and a stunning view of Constitution Dock. Please do not hesitate to contact us to assist with booking at any point. Kind regards, Connor - Guest Service Supervisor.
Nice view and Big”
The apartment is really big. The staff is friendly. I ask for the scenic spots and restaurants. They recommend us a lot. And the location is good. There are two toilets which we can enjoy the shower. We enjoyed our stay very much. And many nice café and restaurants are nearby. Highly recommend!
Good evening KIT, Thank you for leaving a review for us on Agoda! It is wonderful that you enjoyed your stay. I am glad that our staff were attentive to your needs and that you found the amenities provided met your expectations. I do hope we can welcome you back to Somerset on the Pier if you come back to Hobart. Again, thank you for your feedback. Kind regards, Connor - Guest Service Supervisor.
Near to Salamanca market”
Note that the stairs leads to the bedroom therefore only stay here if you don't mind the climbing up and down the stairs as the toilet is located on the 'ground' floor.
Good evening Paulie and thank you for your feedback. Salamanca markets is always a delight in the morning and we are thrilled you could take full advantage. On your next stay, you may wish to experience one of our 'Family" apartments boasting an additional bathroom on the upper floor for convenience. Thank you again, Pauline, we look forward to your next stay with us at Somerset on the Pier.
Great location. Friendly helpful staff”
Checking in and out was easy. Staff were very helpful. Kitchen was a little awkward and the room was a bit noisy (repairs being done to other rooms and young people in rooms nearby). I would stay here again.
Good evening Malcolm, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Somerset on the Pier. We do apologise that you were disturbed by noise. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Kind regards, Connor - Guest Service Supervisor.
Fabulous friendly staff. Beautiful location. Only thing to fault were that we were there on extremely hot days (over 30 degrees) so the top floor was very hot even when using the ceiling fan and floor fan. The air con work d fabulously in the downstairs area though. Great place to stay.
Good afternoon Norah and thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback. I am so pleased that you enjoyed everything about your stay with us at Somerset Hobart and we all look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Warm regards, Bua - Guest Service
Average room, great location”
We stayed in the family apartment which has a bathroom downstairs and another upstairs. The apartment is old and basic and has a smell. Didn’t feel like our money was worth it, apart from being located just by the pier. Very limited parking bays.
Good afternoon Li and thank you for again leaving your feedback with us. I am terribly sorry to hear about your initial experience with us and can assure you this is not what we strive to achieve with our travelers. We are some what limited with our parking providing a number of permanent Somerset spaces and access to all 2P public areas from 6pm-10am. In additional, you will be glad to know we are in the planning stages of a refurbishment in Hobart and do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you again on another occasion to raise your stay experience with us. Kind Regards, Bua - Guest Service
Great stay at the pier ”
Clean apartment. Near to great eats like fish frenzy
It was an absolute pleasure having you stay with us Eng and we very much look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, James - Guest Service Manager.
Good location. ”
Nice apartment overall. Limited parking spots. But plenty off street parking around the area.
Good evening Keith and thank you for your feedback during your stay in April. We thoroughly look forward to welcoming you again soon! Kind regards, James - Guest Service Manager.
Fantastic location. Great staff and easy walk to all sights.”
Absolutely loved the Somerset on The Pier. Fabulous apartment with all mod cons and mezzanine bedroom. Wonderful balcony overlooking the harbour life. Excellent restaurants below the apartments. Easy walking distance to Salamanca Place, the city, Art Gallery and the MONA ferry leaves conveniently from the next pier. Lovely walk through Salamanca , up the Kelly Steps to the enchanting Battery Point. Whiskey Bar showcasing some of Tassie's best across the way from the Somerset. A really great place to stay . Staff are really terrific. Very helpful and friendly. Ticks all of our boxes!
Dear Lester, Thank you for taking the time to express your enjoyment for the stay you had with us at Somerset on the Pier. The loft style apartments at Somerset on the Pier are certainly one to be admired for their unique outlay and view over the harbor. In addition our staff are always trying to go above and beyond expectations and I am glad to see we could happily make you feel at home. We thoroughly look forward to welcoming you back to Hobart in the near future. Kind Regards, James - Acting Guest Service Manager
Nice property with everything you need”
We enjoyed our stay here, especially after 2 weeks of very minimalistic accommodation in national parks. Nice outlook of Constitution Dock from our room with a small balcony. Kitchenette is well appointed and bathroom has a nice-sized spa bath. Washer and dryer was a bonus. Great big bed and TV upstairs AND down. Our only complaint is the very thin walls that meant we were forced to listen to our neighbours talking and slamming doors into the early hours of the morning. Would recommend this property, as long as you get good neighbours!
Perfect location , free parking and reasonable rate if at a Agoda discount. A little noisy in the morning but it is to be expected at this location. One minute walk to the MONA ferry and food options everywhere.
Good location to see sunrise”
Location is good, close to Salamanca market and anywhere in the town. We saw beautiful sun rise from the balcony. Sound proof is not very good. We booked 2 bedrooms apartment. Ventilation relies on the air-con downstairs. There's no fresh air came in when we closed the door of master room.
Great location - directly on the pier”
Really enjoyed my stay here. The location is probably the best you can have - right on the pier with wonderful views from the room. One minor problem I had was the layout of the rooms - I would have preferred a 2 bedroom apartment rather than 1 bedroom with 1 common area where another 2 twin beds were. But regardless, our stay here was wonderful and we wished we could have stayed longer.
Nice premier room, balcony a little narrow”
A comfortable stay overall, with a great location and a nice balcony in the premier room. Only gripe was the hot and cold water for the shower which didn't seem to be working too well, as there was a loud noise whenever we turned on the cold water.
Really enjoyed our stay at Somerset on Pier. Warm welcome by staff on arrival. Nice comfortable rooms, self contained kitchen, washing machine/dryer. Close to Salamanca Markets and easy to get Mona Roma boat to go to Mona Museum..not to be missed when in Hobart!
A very nice serviced apartment style hotel at the city center with a good view of the harbour and very close to tourist attractions like the Salamanca Square. Plenty of restaurants around like the MURES. The serviced apartment also enables you to make you breakfast / dinner or wash your clothes which would be perfect if you will stay in Hobart for a few days.
On the harbor”
Situated in the harbor, the hotel could not be in a better location. This is where many of Hobart's main attractions, restaurants and shopping are located. The loft apartments were also a big hit with our kids as was the view on the harbor. This is also an ideal place for those looking for longer stays, as it comes complete with a washing machine and a small kitchen.
