The room was good, we got upgraded from a double to a family room. We had an aboulutely amazing view over the river derwent and all of the boats. We had dinner at the buffet downstairs and I don't think I've ever eaten so much ever. I would definitely recommend this place to stay.

The idea of staying in a hotel with a casino was not that appealing to begin with. A nice surprise, the hotel is located in Sandy Bay on the waterfront. A very quiet spot with amazing views right on the waters edge. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are comfy and warm despite the chilly Hobart wind.

Didn't have a problem with the staff, who were all very obliging. Just think that the whole place needs to be updated. Rooms are a bit tired looking. I think there should be another option for breakfast other than Buffet. The only other place for breakfast was just a take-away, so we had to walk the 15min to the shopping...

We visited Hobart for three nights in August 2015 and stayed at Wrest Point. The hotel is well positioned and quite close to Salamanca Place and easily accessible by road. The hotel has a lot to do in it, swimming pool, tennis court, mini golf and casino. Overall, we enjoyed our

Where else do I start? Wrest Point has provided us with a place to call home on eight occasions spanning the last year. The porters greet us with a quirky charm, reception caters to our every need (roll-away beds to sleep an army, replacement key-cards for clumsy group members) and house-keeping are always offering services above and beyond their call...

Size of guest room was average but everything was clean and tidy. Quiet surrounding and comfy bed allowed for a good sleep. Have enjoyed leisure walks outside the hotel along the waterfront in the evening and morning. Didn't expect to have a good view of sunrise while having breakfast in the restaurant.
