Friendly, helpful staff. Perfect location on Ned’s Road, between the Lagoon and Ned’s Beach. Clean, well stocked apartment. Small problems: some sewage smell on first day only, poor tv reception. Overall: it was great accommodation on a wonderful island to visit. Highly recommended.

Great location. Very obliging staff. Some ceiling fans would help us mainlanders in the afternoon having a post dive snooze!

Ideal location - unique setting - great experience

Pros: An ideal location to walk to beaches, shops, restaurants, walking trails; shops and a variety of environmental tours by long-term resident experts.
We have long thought about going to Lord Howe Island, and much earlier this year our forward-looking research suggested the Somerset Apartments as the right place at the right price - and it proved an excellent choice, meeting and exceeding all our expectations. From when we were picked up at the airport to when we were taken back there at the end of our stay, the facilities and support services plus excellent information about the island and its features and opportunities, underpinned all aspects of a great holiday. The well-designed and very well equipped and comfortably furnished apartments are spaces out in small groups within surrounding lush gardens of sub-tropical palms and flowering shrubs where the loudest sounds are the songs of many and varied birds. Relaxed. Uncommercialised. Peaceful. Perfect.

A pleasant stay in beautiful surrounds

Pros: Close location to all amenities
Location: Please go to Lord Howe Environmental Tours, hike the trails and go up to Mt Gower with Dean or Kayla, participate in an outing to the reef , etc.
These apartments are comfortable, spacey and beautifully set in a lovely garden, close to the local "CBD", Post Office, shops and tour operators in the main street. Manager Gai and her cheerful team will welcome you to your holiday home as a guest. You will find flowers in your rooms, all amenities needed for your stay, a bbq in the garden and a few coffee shops and restaurants nearby. Enjoy!

Comfortable unit in a lush garden.

Pros: Enjoyed the location and the quiet setting.
Location: There is a cafe closeby with others within walking distance. There is a nearby shop and post office.
The superior one bedroom unit was set in a lush garden and quite comfortable. It is in a good location between Neds Beach and the lagoon. There is a shop and a good cafe/restaurant nearby. The staff were very helpful and friendly. A good stay.

Mid-winter stay

Pros: Close to most activities, clean, private, quiet and friendly.
Cons: Staff rectify anything amiss very quickly.
Location: Central to just about everything. Hire a bicycle (or even mobility scooter) and enjoy this beautiful island's few roads and great walks.
We booked via Wotif with this last available accommodation. It turned out to be wonderful and we had a very happy couple of weeks staying in Frangipani 7 here. Staff are generally very friendly and helpful and small suggestions about path lights being out in some spots were dealt with next day. Cleanliness is terrific, the unit was private and larger than we thought plus, although the ensuite bathroom was not wide, it was a good length and sufficient. Somerset is very close to Thompson's store, Anchorage restaurant, bike hire and also to Ned's Beach. Love that accommodation and restaurants on the island look after getting visitors too and from evening dining - it makes it very easy and somewhat entertaining too. Mid-winter some activities and restaurants are closed, but it didn't stop us from having a top stay on the island. Electric blankets on the queen and single beds kept us warm at night. The unit had a good size balcony overlooking a tropical palm garden. No mobile phone reception is available, but there is wifi access and pay as you go internet available. Friendly Somerset staff picked us up and dropped us back to the airport. We would happily stay here again! Thanks for a fabulous holiday.
