Reviewed 21 May 2014

We stayed for 2 nights at the Wrest Point Hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was on the 14 floor and had great views and was clean and tidy. However the yellow mustard walls took some getting used to. We thought it would be a good idea to have dinner in the Loft Bistro at the hotel one of 5 restaurants. Unfortunately it was not a good experience. The chargrilled squid had not seen a chargrill - it was more like boiled squid and almost inedible. The seafood platter was generous but the seafood was not fresh and appeared to have been frozen. Having said this our buffet breakfast in The Coffee Shop was very nice with a good selection. Overall our stay was good and the $5 valet parking was value for money.

Room Tip: Spend the extra few dollars and get a room with a view..

We stayed here for one night in the Water's Edge section and really loved the views. The customer service was fantastic - all the staff were friendly and helpful (even the off-duty ones). When we returned to the Hobart area a week later we opted to stay here again. This time we were in the Tower. Again the staff were super. A big shout-out to Shally in reception who was extremely helpful, courteous, and friendly. If we visit Hobart again we would most certainly stay here, probably in the Water's Edge as the view was spectacular.

Easy to get to be taxi. Check-in was a breeze, The room was clean and tidy, but a little dated. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The overall décor is tired and dated but clean and functional. Fantastic views in a great location

It sounded like you had a very enjoyable stay Carfolyn, thanks for sharing this on Trip Advisor. It was great to hear the team was attentive and helpful, comments which we recieve regularly and are very proud of. The location is the most spectacular in Hobart in my opinion so thanks for pointing this out as well. Hopefully we will see you again soon if you can get away from the sunny Gold Coast.

Thanks for taking the time to share your views on the decor and bed Shazpeta. Apart from a couple of rooms, Wrest Point offers mostly a queen/single configuration or a king bed. Next time you stay please request a king room and I am sure we will be able to accomodate your request.

The rooms decor is constantly being updated so hopefully you will plesantly surprised on your next visit south, we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

The staff at the Wrest Point were fantastic, from the reception staff, concierge staff, were all very friendly and helpful. The Hotel as you can determine from the photographs is 80's style needing to be upgraded. The views were spectacular from our room. The rooms are dated but clean.
The beds were very uncomfortable. Wi-Fi was good. Free parking was a bonus. The buffet breakfast was very disappointing, usual fair but poorly cooked & presented.

Room Tip: Water Views.

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.
