Of the 58 hotel rooms, 2/3 overlook the bay. The others have a view over the hills to the rear or the surrounding buildings. As the hotel is in a traditional area, there is no "undesirable" view. But the rooms do not have balconies and are not particularly spacious (172 ft² for the standard rooms). Try to request one of the rooms that has just been renovated and enjoy the sober decor in beige hues. Note that the Somerville is not aimed at families and children under 4 are not admitted. Facilities in all the accommodation: television, direct telephone, tea/coffee kit, safe (free), bathroom with bath, hairdryer, bathrobes and welcome products from The White Company. However, there is no minibar.
