                Well I have been Staying at Somerset on Elizabeth for about 8 years now, and the rooms still have the same furnishings, prints etc, which are now very tired and shabby, so in dire needs of a refurbishment

                Location and room facilities

                Furnitures are a bit old (not the same as shown in website pictures).

              • Family with children

                All aspects of the hotel were more than satisfactory. We would choose it again under the right circumstances

                Not the fault of the hotel, but construction wotk at the corner of Elizabeth and Lonsdale Streets kept us awake on the second (Monday- Tuesday) night.

              • Group of friends

                Great central location

                Very noisy at night with road works,construction sites and traffic so I we would not stay again unless rooms had double glazed windows installed.

                Location and Service. All amenities in room were good as was room size.

                Rooms were a bit run down and need upgrading. Our room was bit noisy because it was overlooking main road.

              • Older travelers

                The close proximity to shows & restaurants that we went to while we were there.

                I was a bit disappointed with the cleanliness of the bathroom. I felt as if wanted to give the shower a good scrub with bleach as there was a lot of mould in it. Apart from that it was very comfortable.

                The location was great if you wanted to me close to everying in the CBD and staff were very helpful.

                I didn't feel the property was 4 1/2 stars as it is starting to look a bit tired in my opinion.

                Welcoming staff both when checking in and checking out. Ease of access to rooms. Spaciousness of room and opening windows. Central location with quick access to major shopping centres.

                Noise level from our room . Not the best for sleeping
