We were a group of 3 couples. The motel is as you would imagine right on the pier, close to all shops and walking distance to Salamanca Market and a number of great eateries. The rooms are well equiped and are clean. However I think it's time to rennovate or upgrade the bathrooms. I would have also preferred to know... More

Hobart was the start and end of our round-island drive around Tassie, so we wanted to make the first few nights special. Somerset on the Pier was a great place, Right on the water with small boats and large ships right outside the window. Hobart being really compact, it's only a short 3-block walk to the city centre. The reception... More

stayed six nights. Perfect location. Plenty of food choices nearby. View remarkable from either side of the building. Woolies supermarket about ten minute walk away. Mona ferry at your front door. Museum a block away. Saturday Markets two blocks away. My only complaint is open hallways and thin walls which can be a bit noisey at times. No real noise... More

We were three women who wanted comfortable and convenient accommodation. Somerset on the Pier provided everything we needed. The Executive apartment is split level with a large bathroom, kitchen and sitting area downstairs and smaller bathroom with shower, king size bedroom and small alcove with two single beds upstairs. The kitchen was remarkably well equipped (fridge, dishwasher, toaster, ample crockery... More

You absolutely cannot beat the location of this hotel. Right on the pier surrounded by water and ships. Gorgeous. We were greeted by very friendly staff at the front reception who gave us an upgrade from the one bedroom to a room with a balcony. The apartments with no balconies and are on the opposite side of the balcony apartments... More

There's no denying this property is king of the waterfront views. The location is superb and the outlook exhilarating and it got more beautiful every day with changing boats and weather. The best takeaway seafood Fish Frenzy and a few other restaurants are directly underneath the property and only a 5 minute walk to the MONA ferry/bus stop and 10... More

Was in Hobart for 4 nights and stayed in room 3, a northerly facing room with a balcony. The room was a bit dated however it was clean and tidy and the view was nice overlooking the waster. Overall the hotel is ok but because it has been built on the cheap, you can hear absolutely everything that happens in... More

We booked a luxury room with balcony for three people three months in advance, but were informed on arrival that this was not available by a rather abrupt young man at reception. He could not acknowledge that there was a problem in any way and made no attempt to empathise or be helpful. Eventually he was persuaded to consult higher... More
