I luckily read over the booking information before I arrived in Hobart so I realised that there is no reception on site - with check in done at the Somerset on Pier on the Elizabeth st Pier. This was no problem as my taxi from the airport dropped me at Elizabeth St pier and the mini bus from that property... More

Only stayed here for one night, but wish stayed longer! After receiving easy directions to the check in location, we found it really easy to check in (and even received complimentary upgrade!). The receptionist was also so friendly and helpful and gave great us advice on where to eat and what to do while in Hobart! The on-site parking was... More

Stayed at the Somerset on Salamanca for the first few nights of our Tasmanian getaway - the location couldn't be more perfect. Check-In is at the sister property Somerset on the Pier, but having a hire car this was hardly an inconvience. The apartment was perfect for our group of 2 couples, a large enough lounge room to relax in... More

The apartment was well located next to Salamanca Market but check was not easy as you have to go to another location to do it. Then we found out there was no wifi (not good if you have a 15 year old son). For the price you would expect wifi. On check out we found out that there is 2%... More

My husband and I stayed here for his birthday and we were both incredibly disappointed with the room. The bathroom had mould in the grouting and the shower head didn't go into the bath but into the rest of the bathroom. The bed was incredibly hard and so were the pillows, but luckily they were happy to put a new... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. It's well located for the market, restaurants etc. and quiet. The view from the balcony is mostly dockside carparks and a large university building resembling a factory, but you can see a bit of the harbour at either side. Reception is a good 8-minute walk away and despite my wife having... More

Well located property when you eventually find it. Negatives are: no reception on site which means you have to check in at sister premises some 8 minutes away, no wi fi, no view or aspect and a credit card surcharge. Positives are: spacious rooms, good beds, quality furnishings and the rooms are serviced daily. Not the cheapest accommodation in Hobart... More

My fiancé, parents and myself stayed in these serviced apartments. This ideal location made it easy to visit and see the sites of Hobart and the harbor. Onsite parking was tight and constantly full. The service needs some improvements as we had to ring and request cleaning products with some sections of the apartment being ignored and not cleaned. Overall... More
