                          children shouting and screaming from the inter-connecting door to my lounge room.

                          It was in a great location. Close to the city and waterfront.We had 3 small kids so having a TV in each of the bedrooms and living area was great.

                          The hot water ran out once and allocated parking, at times, was unavailable.

                          Location, would have preferred a higher apartment to see the water

                          No hot water in the shower !

                          We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. This hotel is right on Salamanca so is within walking distance of the Salamanca area, piers and Battery Point historic village. We like to self cater and to have in room laundry facilities, both of which were available at Somerset.

                          Only a minor point - on premises car parking is very tight and limited.

                          The spacious and clean rooms

                          Having to check in on another pier and it not being stated on our order confirmation.

                          Location. Clean and comfortable.

                          Was unhappy with the non-refundable condition and was nervous to book it. I think a fee within 48 hrs of cancellation is fairer.

                          Spending the day at Salamance Markets, looking at all the great local produce and hand-made goods for sale. People were so friendly and the atmosphere very inviting. We went to Elizabeth Pier, partaking great food and wine at T/42%, a bar-restaurant. Worth a visit.

                          We had a small child in our party and they tried to charge $50 a night for the extra single bed, which I found unacceptable. I refused to paye seeing I was told it would only be $10 per night. Televisions are old boxes which I find hard to accept these days when plasma T.V's are so cheap. Noise from other tenants leaving early in the morning was a major problem. No regard for others at all. Hardly the hotels problem I realise but it should be mentioned to foreign tourists.

                          Close to shopping precinct.

                          The room was out dated, it also smelled of cigarettes. 1.5 stars. Corridors were filthy, smelly and dark.
