“Great value stay”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Spent one night in a downstairs room overlooking a little garden area - very nice and quiet, no noise from the car park. The room itself was very clean and the beds really comfortable. We got the room for Aus $109 which was very good value. We used the swimming pool and spa - in good condition and very quiet. I would certainly stay here again.

What a disappointment, from the moment we walked from the main tower to this separate area of Wrest Point I knew we had made a bad choice. This place is very tired. The rooms are small and although the bathrooms have had a facelift the rest of the room is how I imagine it would have been many years ago.....except that at some stage it's had a very tacky paint job.
The beds were quite comfy but good luck trying to sleep through all the noise from the car park outside.
For the price you could do much better in Hobart, if I was not with my wife I would have walked straight out and left.

Pleasantly surprised by quality of room 421 in old part of hotel. Spotless room with comfy queen bed, two single beds and fridge; no noise despite being New Years Eve. Pleasant 30 min walk to Salamanca Place with one big hill. Clean bathroom with nice shower, good water pressure. Good use of sheer curtains to obscure view of retaining wall. Friendly, helpful staff at cocktail bar and breakfast buffet in main building next door. Free carparking.

On the website it looked OK and the price looked OK............... but a word of advice, even though 'mountainside' room sounds enticing and the description reads well, these are tired old rooms that need a big renovation. Although the bathrooms have been renovated, the rest of the room is desperately in need of renovation. The TV is something that should go to the dump and the view (expecting a mountain view) is of the casino car park. Our rate also included the buffet breakfast which rates as one of the least average I have experienced. Unless you want to stay at the Casino then try and find something closer to Salamanca and pay the bit extra. Now I know why they had vacancies.

Wow, I stayed at Wrest Point (Mountain side) 10 years ago and things haven't changed. Dated furnishings, old style TVs, wear and tear on the walls. Especially loved the 80's style light fixtures around the mirror in the bathroom (NOT!). This is an embarrassment to the Federal Group and Tasmania. The only good thing was quick check in and out.

Have just checked into wrest point today. Had lunch at one of the restaurants and werent spoken to very nicely by anyone we came into contact with. Checked into our "mountain view" room which is a disgusting room with a view of the parking lot. The room is so outdated its probably older than i am. Beige walls, turd brown bed covers and a very old tv. Beds look to be a double and single. If its a queen size, its a tiny queen bed. Im astonished at how terrible these rooms are and dont even have the view as promised. No one could help us with a carpark, no one bothered to help us with our luggage. If i ever come to tasmania again, i will never stay at wrest point casino. Ive stayed in nicer road side motels. Whenever we go to jupitersnon the goldcoast we never get treated this way and their rooms are nowhere near this bad. Think ill just stay on the mainland from now on.

What a huge disappointment. Small rooms and in need of a huge update. Pricing was outrageous - $360 per night. No redeeming features Mountainside meant that the hotel block was 100ft closer to the mountain - view of the parkade.

Room Tip: I wouldn't stay here again
