We stayed at Somerset on Gordon for eight nights and moved rooms twice.
We had booked a one bedroom apartment with an extra bed for a friend who was staying a few nights for a concert. The first room although it was meant to be a one bedroom was tiny and basically a studio apartment.
We moved to another room, which was bigger and a lot better. However it had two problems, the hot water in the shower lasted for about 10mins, not great for three people! Also it was facing Little Bourke St, the restaurants etc, honestly it was like trying to sleep in a nightclub, not just traffic noise, but people talking, music, bottles been cleared etc. So we moved again, this time to a two bedroom apartment which was very good.
I should note that the staff were very good and helpful and did everything they could to help us.
We didn't use the restaurant but it looked good, the pool was good and the location was good as well, especially for China Town restaurants we loved the Bamboo House, just across the road, very good food. Also close to the free tram about 5mins walk.
Next time I would probably check out their Elizabeth St apartments.
