Picturesque and Fantastic Customer Service”

Somerset On The Pier was definitely a treat for my wife and I. The personnel have fantastic customer service. Especially the front desk. The room was very clean and has all the amenities you need. It was like a semi-furnished 1 bedroom apartment with a kitchenette (dishwasher),bath/shower, washing machine/dryer, and the bedroom is upstairs in a loft separate. Actually, the location on the pier is a highlight, and the heart of the city is within walking distance. Salamanca Market operates on Saturdays. Plenty of Bars, Restaurants, Fresh Seafood(yum),and no need for covid restrictions. My wife and I had a fantastic stay at 'Somerset on the pier", and highly recommend for a quick getaway.

Hobart on the water”

Staying out on the pier means the water is metres from the window. See the boats, Mt Wellington and the local seal. All the restaurants are next door (10secs walk) or a 5mins walk to CBD and everything else. This is the best location to view Hobart. We felt like VIP's parking the car out on the pier. We have teenage kids and the sleeping area is upstairs in the room with the downstairs been the living room looking straight out on the water. would def stay here again.

We stayed in a premium 1 bm and our 3 teens stayed across the hall in an exec 1 bm. It’s definitely worth the little bit extra to have balcony and easterly view with the premium. The rooms are not super stylish or lux but they are clean and comfortable and the views and location more than makeup for that The staff are super friendly and helpful.

Location was central, and one can enjoy a great view of the pier area.

The building's architecture is beautiful too!
