6 of us stayed at Wrest Point last week, we had 3 twin rooms, with water views, in the older part of the hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean but dated and need renovating, nevertheless it was a comfortable stay. The porter who helped us, I can't remember his name, was bloody great and helped us get our bike...

Once a year, for the past 10 with one exception, we've stayed at Wrest Point. We like the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the food and service and the great value offered by what is arguably a 5 star hotel. Our recent visit was no exception. Our only gripe - and it's minor - is that nobody recognises...

Wrest Point is spread over a large area and has several different accommodation types (main tower above casino complex, motel units and so called Water Edge rooms. We had booked one of the latter and it did indeed have lovely waterside view. However it was essentially a motel style room, a little jaded, a long trek from the car park...

Please accept our sincere apologies that the Water Edge accommodation did not live up to your expectations. The electronic keys are currently being replaced with a new modern system so we do not anticipate any future issues for guests. I hope you enjoyed the Wooden Boat Festival and thank you again for your feedback. Kind regards Andrew Fox Hotel Manager

We visit Hobart regularly and have stayed both sides of the river visiting an Aunt in Bellrive. We found Wrest point fabulous for our needs. Stayed in a waterfront room beautiful view nicely fitted out with lovely linen serviced well daily. We loved the restaurants and bars in particular the Loft and the Pier. The staff on arrival were excellent....

We booked the hotel anticipating great view from it's location and look. We got the beautiful yachts and sea view as expected. We stayed there during Chinese New Year week and got the welcoming and festive atmosphere upon arrival. Facilities are comprehensive with lots of car park space.

We are long time guest of Wrest Point. After a fantastic and efficient checkin and welcome and a great concert we headed back to reception to be ignored by the front desk supervisor, John [--].

My friends and I go out for the dinner buffet once a month. It needs a change. It's the same food every week for the past year or so. It needs more variety. The casino is ok. But the hotel itself needs a massive renovation. It's just looks so old.

We appreciate your constructive feedback which will be passed on to the kitchen team-the buffet offerings are changed with certain promotions eg; The current Asian influenced offerings to celebrate Chinese New Year..., there will be an emphasis on chocolate over Easter.... These promotions are mentioned on the website so make sure you check before making your next reservation... Stay tuned...

I didn't expect that much when I book Wrest Point from website. Reasonable price, lots of facilities, friendly staff, lots of choices for restaurants, bars, gaming and health and well-being.

We stayed at the Motor Inn. The room location was just on the top of the entrance which was very noisy due to the open/close of the door especially at mid-night. The staffs at check-in counter was not paying attention on the waiting customers. Other than these, the rest were ok.

Our room was on a ground floor building. It was a pleasant surprise as we only needed a good night's sleep from a hectic hiking trip. The room was quiet, large with very comfortable bed and bathroom. Just a few meters across the back car park was a bus stop which gave us an easy access to city and harbour.
