I selected the hotel for proximity to the Uni across the road where I was doing a course - about 4 blocks walk each day. Service was fantastic, checked in at 100% occupancy as a car rally was on but still quick and efficient. Room service was large compared to most so filling and also hot! Rooms had a great view over the water - can't complain.

Stayed here back in April with my wife for two nights. Check in was slow as the two receptionists where both dealing with the guest in front of us. Eventually it was our turn and at first the receptionist couldn't find our booking on their system. She finally found that another staff member had processed our booking already and had left all the paperwork on the desk. Not impressed so far!!!
Got to our room and were excited to see the magnificent view of Hobart Harbour, really stunning!!!
Then we check out the room and were very disappointed by every aspect of it. It was really very dated and the decor was gloomy with its colour scheme and furnishing.
We got the impression that the hotel had spent their money on the public areas, but had put no investment into the rooms for many years.
We had eaten at several of the restaurants previously and had been underwhelmed with the food quality and service. This time because we weren't that hungry we decided to try the Riverview Snack Bar. Again the service was poor and when the snacks arrived we were amazed that a supposedly top class hotel couldn't produce better quality food!!!
The rest of the stay went okay and we found one member of staff, a lady room attendant that
was cheerful & really helpful.
We tried the indoor pool and gym, again very small and dated. Defiantly showing its advancing years!!!
On the morning of checkout there were two different reception staff on duty who totally ignored us and carried on chatting to each other, so we just dropped the key card in the box and left, each of us saying that this was the last time we would ever stay or eat here!!!
There are many better hotels in Hobart than Wrest Point, so please avoid this hotel!!!

Room Tip: Harbour facing rooms are brilliant for the view, but the rooms themselves are so dated that they are depressing!!!

Thankyou for taking the time to pass on you comments Vinnie01, it is very much appreciated and provides us with valuable insights in which to build a better customer experience for the future. We invest heavily in ensuring the team delivers consistently high levels of service so I was dissapointed to read some of our team did not deliver to a higher standard, please accept my sincere apologies for this.

We are constantly updating our interiors however I realise some of the colour schemes may not be to everyone's taste and we will certainly take your comments into account for future updates.

Thanks again for your comments.

Kind regards

Waters Edge is very pleasant to wake up to. Nice to be able to open windows and even though views from Tower are better, view over the water is still lovely. Even though this is the older area of Wrest Pt. everything very accessible. Parking secure and easy access to rooms from Car Park. Staff helpful and have good information of entertainment and areas around Hobart. Restaurants cater for all levels. We always stay here when in Hobart.

Room Tip: Waters Edge - don't choose a room opposite the stairs!!

For these who love a cold morning on the water. This is the place. From the moment we parked our hire car with the very pleasant Daniel to being able to check in early. Getting our Barbour view room, this felt like something in Scotland, or Italy amongst the scenic view of the mountains. Just perfect. Yes the rooms are a little dated it's Tasmania not Sydney. But the view and friendly staff made it worth it.

Hobart in winter is amazing as you have rightly pointed out, everyone is eagerly awaiting the first snow fall on the mountain which is always quite spectacular! Just like Scotland we also have exceptional quality homemade Whisky in Tassie so I hope you had a chance to try some whilst you visited, I would recommend either Lark or Nant distilleries. I was glad to hear Daniel and the rest of the team took good care of you, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

A fabulous view from the seventh floor overlooking a beautiful harbour. Staff very helpful and hotel very comfortable, good choice of restaurants. Although hotel is an older style it is very good value and I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 7th floor facing harbour are fabulous
