Wrest Point
Ranked #15 of 47 Hotels in Hobart
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

The hotel/casino is sited on a point of land projecting into the Derwent River. At an estimate it is about 4.5 kms from the city centre which can be gained by an interesting walk along Sandy Bay, past Graham Blackwood Marina and Salamanca Place. A taxi ride costs A$10.00.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on three occasions in September 2017. Two of the stays were by design as part of a tour. The other stay was impromptu as part of our tour route could not be undertaken due to heavy snow closing the roads in the Cradle Mountain area.

As our stay was part of a tour check in was pre-arranged. It was very efficient and simple.

Before commenting further it is appropriate to note the very courteous, friendly and accommodating attitude of all staff. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome and were always ready with assistance.

During our stays we occupied Room No. 412 for two nights, Room 915 for one night and Room 602 for two nights.

Rooms 412 and 915 had mountain views. Room 602 had an outlook towards Mount Wellington and Graham Blackwood Marina.

In each instance the rooms were adequate in size, beds (1 double and 1 single) were comfortable and with linen clean and crisp. The rooms were equipped with air-conditioning, TV, alarm, clock, table, chairs, safe, mini-bar, tea/coffee making facilities.

Bathrooms are best described as compact. The layout is not good as the entrance door opens against the toilet which is not conducive to easy access in the dark of night. If there had been a bit of foresight the bathroom doors should have been hinged on the opposite side so that they opened against the bath thus improving toilet access. Towels etc. are just of adequate thickness and quality. There were the usual complimentary shampoos, conditioner, soap etc.

Rooms 415 and 602 had a shower over the bath. Notwithstanding there was a substantial handrail to assist entry and exit from the bath/shower it would remain a difficult manoeuvre for older people or those otherwise unsteady on their feet to step into and from the bath. Room 915 had a shower cubicle so the question of difficult access/exit did not arise. Water pressure was good and temperature flow of hot water was consistent.

The door to the bathroom in Room 602 looked a bit tatty as the bottom part of the inside was delaminating.

Each of the rooms were quiet and thick curtains ensured sleep was not spoiled by light.

We mainly dined in the Coffee Shop restaurant that has great views over the Derwent River. Breakfasts, buffet style, were very good with a wide selection of food that catered for many tastes. My only gripe is that there was no marmalade available but plenty of other conserves. Evening dinners were also buffet style and, again, the food was plentiful and varied to suit all palates. These meals were included in our tour costs so I cannot comment on whether they are reasonably priced or otherwise.

Overall our stays were very pleasant and I would not hesitate to book there again.

Room Tip: Good view from all rooms but pick would be those overlooking river.

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
