Thought the location was great. The furniture and decor tired and outdated. Party functions in the bar below loud music till 1 am. I don’t understand how you can have a hotel over such a loud venue. Staff were courteous and helpful. I don’t see why I’m paying for a room that I on

The hotel is an excellent location easily accessible to the city and attractions.
We stayed over a weekend following some business. It’s great to sit in the balcony overlooking the marina though that can make it noisy and the rooms are not particularly well insulated against noi

What an amazing location! Walking distance to Salamanca Market, Best Seafood restaurance and the MONA ferry almost on your doorstep. I found our room a little tired and not quite living up to the pictures on the website. I also felt it was misleading that when I clicked on pho

So not a luxury hotel for a 10-day 25th wedding anniversary stay then? My husband would be very unhappy with the T.P.!! Green choices or not!
Hi. We stayed for 3 nights when the weather was reasonably cool. Im not sure Hobart is the location for a 10 day stay. Besides, the bedroom on the loft can get warm with only a fan to help you out! I would definitely not recommend Hobart for a 10 day stay on a special occasion.

Do you have secure motorcycle parking 2/3/17_4/3/17.2guest.
Parking is on the pier adjacent to the apartments. However, we did notice a motorbike parked right outside the glass entry doors, presumably for security (ie it could easily be seen by reception staff).

I would like to know about parking for hire car
The Sumerset has limited parking spaces in front of the main building, plus a couple along the pier next to the main entrance. Finding a parking space can be frustrating at first and the staff have some good tips on hoe to get a parking spot. You will enjoy your time at the Sumerset and Hobart.

is breakfast included, what is the cost of dinner and are towels and soap provided
Somerset does not include breakfast in the room cost as it is a 'serviced residence' but they do have the ability for charge back option at Tavern 42 South on the Pier and a newly introduced 10% discount at Lola cafe'
