After initially being disappointed about no vacancies in the tower we were no longer disappointed when staying at the motor inn. The room was a mix of old furnishing with refurbished fixtures. We especially loved the Hollywood lights of the bathroom. The beds were amazingly comfortable and soft. I do question security as I closed the key swipe door when... More

The rooms are comfortable containing 1 x queen and 1 x single bed with pillowtop mattresses. Great block out curtains and motel basics (bar fridge, kettle and toaster). Free tea, coffee, real milk, biscuits and good wifi. A few pointers for anyone with mobility issues: * Steps to upper level and lower level (apparently there is a lift at the... More

Only stayed here one night with friends and had no problems at all. Greeted on arrival by friendly staff, asked if we needed help with luggage or valet parking. Check in was fast and easy. ( As was check-out) Our rooms were clean, beds comfy. Loved the crispy clean white sheets on the queen size bed. The rooms all had... More

Unaware of the long weekend and the Wooden Boat festival , hotels in Hobart were packed. I have to settle for the Wrest Point Motor Inn which has not gone thru a major upgrade for a long long time. Reception in the main casino tower was swift and friendly . But not happy with the 1% surcharge for usage of... More

Recently stayed here, using a room modified for wheelchair bound guests, such as myself. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the bathroom was laid out very well and suited my needs perfectly. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and even though the hotel is now 40 years old, and perhaps could do with a little upgrade, there... More

The room was clean had a queen and single bed (there were 3 of us) and was approx $149 a night(we stayed 2 nights). The bed was extremely comfortable and had a pillowtop mattress and curtains made room really dark so we all slept in. Shower was fantastic and had great pressure. Downside was when you walk in we were... More

Hooray someone knows how to color co-ordinate these rooms may have been smaller but they were cheaper still a nice ground floor view would prefer to stay here rather than the towers complex you still get to use all the facilities

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.... More

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... More

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.... More
