We stayed for at Wrest Point over 3 nights for a conference. We had a room on the 8th floor with a view back to Mt Wellington (far right) and the beach edge of Sandy Bay (far left). It's a good view, and worth spending some time enjoying - although the view up the Derwent from the coffee shop is far better. The room was fairly average and a little crowded. It had a very 70's wood cupboard and shelving unit complete with a old 20 inch 4:3 aspect CRT TV with a limited cable TV selection ( no history or discovery channels - sigh). Oh, and the TV cannot accept digital so the other channels were limited as well. Maybe digital hasn't got to Tasmania yet? All the other amenities were present, mini bar (250mm coke $5), tea and coffee making (1 x 2 biscuit pack) a toaster and good internet! The bathroom was small but recently refurbished with nice grohe tap fixtures. In the cupboard were spare pillows, I got one out to watch TV, it looked absolutely new and unused, but we couldn't use it as it had never been aired and stank the room out. This was made worse as we had to turn the air con off due to the intermittent fan blades noise at night,
To balance this the bed was great, the latex pillow on the bed was really good. The breakfast had a good selection and there was plenty of choice even was if a little pricey (conference special for 2 $54). The front desk staff were excellent, even if the room service staff were a touch forgetful( didn't replace the empty tissue box even although they took the empty away and although we used the shampoo, it wasn't replaced ( well we only used a little in the bottle).
