As the real estate agents say: "Location, location, location". Easy walk or bike ride to all the beaches, and cafes. Comfortable, well appointed rooms with very helpful staff to sort out any issues. We have stayed at Pinetrees and Leanda Lei, but have returned to Somerset as it ticks all the boxes for us.

I stayed in the Somerset Apartments with a couple who are friends of mine. I think the place would have been fine for a couple, but the apartment we received was small for three - the "third bed" was really just the couch in the living room, and the bathroom was en suite with the main bedroom, so I had...

Brilliantly located. Convenient to shop (Thompson's Store) and Restaurant (Anchorage). Close to Neds Beach and the Lagoon. Friendly and helpful staff. Accommodation simple but comfortable. Staff will provide any additional cooking items you require.

Stayed four nights in this lovely villa. A very friendly hotel staff picked us up at the airport when we arrived. The room is simple but nice, clean. It has almost everything we need. Keep in mind this is a very isolated island, everything has to be shipped from the mainland. So you will appreciate things more when you are... More

We had a lovely stay at the Somerset Apartments. It is well located and close to restaurants, shops, the post office and bank and an easy bike ride from Ned's Beach where you can swim with beautiful fish or the lagoon with the magically coloured water with the view of mountains. We were with a large group of friends and... More

Had a wonderful stay at Somerset Apartments. With 16 other friends this accommodation was just right. Close to everythang and very comfortable. Would go back any time. Some rooms can be a bit noisy but if you mention this to your neighbors all is good.

We stay in Sarong 2 apartment for 7 nights in October. The place was very comfortable and clean and quiet. The kitchenette was very well stocked and enabled us to eat in when we wanted. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The cost is a little high, but you pay a premium for staying on the island. Location wise... More

Have just returned from a weeks stay at Somerset Lodge and it was ideal for us. Went with friends and they had the next unit to us. Lovely big balconies, comfy beds with electric blankets(had a cold spell while we were there), clean and bright . We were at the front in Hibiscus 9 so could sit and watch what... More

The best thing about the Somerset is the location , but like other reviewers I found the apartments noisy, we could hear every word next door was saying, and we listened to their TV, in the evening and all the toilet habits in the morning, having seen a few apartments hence the title of my review, we were eventually settled...
