We recently stayed for 8 nights at Somerset Apartments. While very average and minimally furnished with basic furniture our apartment was comfortable. Be aware that this is an older style of accommodation and as such walls between apartments are very thin meaning we could clearly hear our neighbours walking through the adjoining apartment, opening and closing the sliding bathroom door and front screen door, the exhaust fan attached to the light in the bathroom and the toilet flushing. This may have been ok if our neighbours werent up using the bathroom, opening and closing the door and turning the light on at 2.30 and 3.30am on a number of mornings. Gardens are lovely. Apartments are clean. Apartments are in a great location just up the road from a general store, restaurant, Lagoon beach and the start of some walking tracks.

Husband and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment in November. Couldn't praise the friendly staff enough for their helpfulness. Nothing was a problem, transport to eateries at night was reliable. Position of cottages ideal - close to everything with very relaxed atmosphere. Although self contained, my only 'ask' would be a hot plate and a pan or two if we wanted to cook and eat at 'home' rather than going out every night. Thank you Gai for a wonderful stay - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your property and hopefully will be able to stay there next time we visit.

Our hosts Steve, Grace, Jess and Gina were fantastic - they had thought of everything we might need and provided it - for the welcome hamper to the "emergencies" in the bathroom - such a delightful and quiet paradise - we will be back - Michael & Louisa

This is hardly three star. No toiletries except soap. Everything was very basic This is budget accomodation at best. It is however, walking distance to beaches and what they laughably call their CBD. They accomodate groups, but like most accomodation on the island only have a mini bus to transport guests to restaurants in multiple trips. They also jam people in with some people who are travelling together sitting on other's laps and the floor. Cosy for some!

Thank you for taking the time to review Somerset, your feedback is welcomed. Our CBD is small but covers the island essential services. Each night we offer a free service to each of the restaurants. Lord Howe Island is a unique and special destination.

We stayed in a superior room which had everything we needed. The facilities at the apartments were great including fantastic clean BBQ facilities with shelter for the rain showers in the evenings. My second time at LHI and can highly recommend Somerset.
