We stayed for a couple of nights in a tower executive room. The rooms have been updated but still are over priced for what they are. You do get free WiFi which is a real bonus compared to many Australian hotels and the room was clean quiet and comfortable. Wrest Point is long walk or taxi ride to Salamanca or... More

We stayed for 2 nights and our room was ok. When you walk into reception it is almost like going back in time as the decor is quite outdated. We had a water level room, which was clean and tidy. As you walked between different sections the decor changed and it is a mish mash of colors and styles. It... More

The Christmas / New Years Eve period is a great time to visit Hobart with so much activity on the river and waterfront so it was nice to hear you were able to share this special time of year with us. The Long Table Dinner on NYE was indeed spectacular with the Derwent River as a backdrop so it was... More

Not a bad stay--location too far from the "action" of Hobart Town. We could not get accommodation in a hotel anywhere else in Hobart. Food at best average --except for dinner in the revolving restaurant which was extremely good. Other bistros in the hotel were "pub food " standard. Service was basic with none of the staff we came across... More

Thanks for your review, Pier One restaurant is probably the best located restaurant in Hobart with the deck overlooking the Derwent River. It was nice to hear you enjoyed one of our famous seafood pizzas, they are very popular. Thanks for visiting Wrest Point and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Stayed here on 15 Feb and 21 Feb for a family holiday. Food in mini bar including hot chocolate, peanuts, Pringles are all expired for both days of stay. Complained but did not replace all items. Need to call again before they replace the items. Non responsible hotel.

Michelle and others at front desk. Thanks for the easy move to another room. My husband isn't feeling well and very light headed. Was so afraid he would fall in bath/shower. You fixed our problem.

Many of our guests enjoy the fact that Wrest Point is slightly out of the hustle and bustle of the city and make the most of the water taxi service to get themselves to Salamanca in a matter of minutes - unless of course they enjoy a lovely walk through the historic Battery Point as you discovered.

We stayed in the executive harbour view room and the room was extremely comfortable and clean with a wonderful view. I particularly enjoyed being able to watch the sunrise! The decor is a little out dated and the hotel looks a little tired and therefore I think slightly overpriced. But a wonderful stay regardless. The revolving restaurant is a must... More
