We stayed in the Wrest Point Tower during our recent Honeymoon and we couldn’t have chosen a better hotel. The hotel was well equipped, well maintained, well located close to the city but away from the noise of the city traffic.
All the staff from check-in to checkout, housekeeping staff, room service staff, concierge and porters were all courteous and friendly and made you feel welcome and relaxed at all times.
The views from our suite in the Tower were magnificent.
We had originally booked for 4 nights, but due to a problem with our next accommodation we returned to Wrest Point for another 4 nights, where they were once again so friendly and helpful fitting us back in at short notice. I highly recommend the Wrest Point Hotel and all its restaurants.

Welcoming, warm service is what we pride ourselves on so it was great to hear that so many of the team delivered that during your stay, particularly for such an important occasion as your honeymoon! Thanks for sharing your experiences, those images from the Tasmanian Air Adventure flight look quite spectacular! We look forward to welcoming you back for a few anniversaries in the future.

We stayed in the tower and had excellent views over the water. The rooms are a little dated but very clean and with all the modern conveniences. Rooms well sound proofed and beds were comfy! Service was simply excellent!

Room Tip: The tower!

All of our guests remark on the great service our team delivers so it was good to hear you were no exception. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We stayed in the tower and had a great view of the water from the ninth floor. The rooms in the tower are not big. Two and adults and 2 kids under 8 fill the room. That is fine as we didn't spend much time there. The rooms are clean which is a big deal for me.

Modern? Not so much. But I'll take clean over that.

The breakfast included in the room was really average at best. For the girls it was fine. A little bit of everything but it was really quite average and not worth the $$.

The property is okay. On. Sliding scale for Hobart it's hard to say, but it's not comparable to what you'll get in the other capital cities. Just so you set your expectations, not to ward you off.

The staff is friendly and helpful. I won't discourage you from staying here, it's nice. It's just not awesome.

Room Tip: Face the water!

Cleanliness is indeed very important to our guests and we take it very seriously so thanks for recognising the fact the room was sparkling. I was dissapointed to read your comments about the breakfast, I will certainly make sure we review this asap as it's such an important meal we need to make sure we are giving our guests the best start to the day. Thanks for sharing your balanced view, it is much appreciated.

Although Wrest Point Casino has been around for a long time, it does have some charm. The location is lovely with great views of the Derwent River, Mt Wellington and Hobart.
The accommodation is spacious and very clean, and very Hobart. A bit old fashioned with plenty of timber. Not sure this all comes together in the foyer, with a multitude of different colours, and building materials. I think the front door and outside could do with a little TLC. The staff are all very helpful and courteous and this makes it a very nice place to stay. The full breakfasts are good with a touch of Tasmanian produce, in the jams and honey. I am very disappointed in the amount that we were charged to change from at Wotif booking, and this will definitely impact on our staying here again. We tried the Pier One restaurant which is in part of the casino complex.
The food was good, however it did lack imagination and although the quality was there the flare wasn't.
Thank you again to the pleasant, helpful staff.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a Harbour view. Some of the accommodation is quite ordinary in the older part of the hotel. Higher floors have better view.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at Wrest Point, I was glad to hear you enjoyed the comfortable rooms and that we looked after you well. Your observations about the food in both Pier One and the Coffee Shop buffet are great as it gives us the opportunity to continue with some concepts and amend others. The decor is something we continue to update, thanks for sharing your views on this also.
