Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Rooms have been refurbished but workmanship is poor. Customer service below par at front desk. Trying too hard to be an upmarket hotel, charging for it but not succeeding. So much competition in Hobart and they are falling further behind. Won't be back. Have tried several times and it gets no better.

We stayed 7 days on the 16th floor at wrest point. The room and view was outstanding room service was first class and nothing was to hard for the staff. The reception staff were very prompt had everything ready when we checked in and made us feel very welcomed. We had dinner on 3 occasions at Pier1 and once at the revolving restaurant . We were a bit disappointed with the food at Pier1 but the revolving restaurant was first class. Sauna , pool and Jim facilities were very good . Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Wrest Point hotel and it was an awesome stay. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed on the 11th floor and the view was spectacular. We couldn't hear any noise coming from street level. We were told that it's going to undergo a 90 million dollar Reno.

Easy to find location and very helpful staff. Room was clean and quiet with great water pressure.

View from the window was fantastic although at night I would recommend the curtains be drawn as very easy for people on the street to see into the room.

Easy access to the car park once you are actually parked, if you are going through from reception then it can be a bit confusing following the corridors. Carpet in the corridors could do with a clean, however the rooms are the main reason you are here and I could not complain.

Would recommend for the view if not for anything else, however overall it is a nice hotel.

Room Tip: Ocean views cannot be beaten

We stayed in the tower while attending a conference in the Hotel. My daughter said her rollaway bed was uncomfortable but the others were fine. The room would not warm up even with the temp turned right up for days-I found the whole hotel to be too cool with their heating. The buffet breakfast was great. Most of the hotel including our room is a bit dated and in need of an refurb.
