Clean, efficient, and a good-sized room. My only issue (which is hardly a fault of the place, to be fair) is that it's a pretty fair walk to the centre of Hobart. Be prepared to either order a taxi, or wear comfortable shoes... The casino was like every other casino in the world - dreadful. But there again, I didn't... More

The rooms are of a decent size, clean with nice Manchester. Pillows are good as is the Doona. The bathroom is old but ok. Wall hairdryer. Tea / coffee. For the price of these rooms i expected a lot more. Very old and the room smells. They would not have been updated since they were built. Service at the front... More

We stayed in Water Edge King room and for the $179 a night I was impartial. I thought for a $179 dollars you would get breakfast at least but hey ho it wasn't to be. The rooms were clean but very dated. Art Deco but a little bit tired. It's definitely a step back in time. The bed was comfortable... More

This is a well appointed and comfortable place to stay, the more economic of the accommodation available but with all conveniences. bathroom well equipped, bed very comfortable biscuits supplied with tea/coffee. My only moan would be that mentioned by someone earlier, the décor needs updating to a colour more light and less depressing, the mustard-ish coloured walls and dark drapes... More

Queens Birthday Long Weekend - My partner and I stayed over the weekend. The layout of the room was suitable and reasonably spacious. We had a little trouble with the TV, but got it sorted. Coming from chilly Melbiurne to an even colder Hobart, arriving at night, I was so looking forward to a warm bed. I was very surprised... More

My trip to Hobart was a last minute thing over Easter this year (2016); so i was prepared to suffer either horrible prices and a very limited range of accommodation; so I was plenty surprised by the Wrest Point Motor Inn. While this wasn't my original place to stay in; I can tell you that if I return to Hobart... More

This room was comfortable and had a nice view. Bed were good and very clean. Pillows were terrible! It is situated a bit to far from the action and to far to walk to the marina. Therefore we had to get a taxi every time we went out. Better if you had a car. Overall very dated.
