Our stay overall was excellent at the Somerset. We were a group of women travelling to Hobart to walk the Three Capes walking track. This required us to stay one night, complete our walk and then come back for a remaining 2 nights in Hobart. Restaurants were close to hand and walking distance, we visited the art museum for which the ferry was literally outside the door to the Somerset. The bus that picked us up for the hike also left from directly outside The Somerset. Incredibly convenient indeed. We were able to leave our hand luggage at reception and returned to find it having already been deposited in one of the rooms that we were staying. The staff were polite and helpful and the whole stay was positive. The only hiccup was upon leaving we were unexpectedly charged a Credit Card Admin Fee. Unfortunately this did leave a taint to our positive stay. However to the Somerset's credit once these unexpected charges were mentioned through a feedback form the fees were refunded, this was very much appreciated. The only thing I can say is that it would be good for any future traveller to be mindful of the possibility of these charges when booking and maybe enquire as to how they can be avoided through alternative payment methods, ie other than a credit card. Overall an excellent stay and perfect for our needs travelling with a group.

Location amazing. Biscuits with tea would be nice and for the price probably Foxtel would be good. And a guest information booklet in the room. Overall really nice.
