Somerset On The Pier Takes Out Tourism Tasmania Deluxe Accommodation Award

Somerset on the Pier, Hobart, part of the Ascott International group has won the prestigious Tourism Tasmania Deluxe Accommodation Award 2004 for the second year running.

The 56-room property, situated on the Elizabeth Street Pier waterfront, was honoured at the state tourism awards and is now a finalist in the National Tourism Awards to be held February 2005.

"To win this award for the second year running is testament to our loyal team here at Somerset on the Pier and a reward for all of their hard work, dedication and passion over the past 12 months", said Allison Englebretsen - General Manager Tasmania, Ascott International.

Surrounded by the bustling waterfront and offering stunning panoramic views, Somerset on the Pier is one of Hobart's premier accommodation venues where guests literally stay on the waterfront. With its two-storey loft-style apartments, the property overlooks the beautiful Derwent River and the historic Sullivan Cove.

Celebrating their "back-to-back" Tourism Tasmanian awards win, Somerset on the Pier enjoys their busiest months in the summer, with rates starting from $225 per night.

With such a prime location on the waterfront (originally built in the 1930s), the property is also only a short walk from Hobart's Central Business District and offers unique, stylish apartment-style accommodation designed for the comfort and convenience of the discerning traveler.

"Whilst Somerset on the Pier is in the heart of Hobart's prime business district, it is also an ideal base for the leisure traveller, with theatre, dining and shopping districts only a short walk away, including Constitution Dock and Hobart's famous seafood restaurants" said Ms Englebretsen.

Each of the 56 one and two bedroom serviced residences provide spacious, modern living as well open, spilt-level, loft-style apartments, in keeping with the historical warehouse feel.
