It was our first trip Tasmania and wanted to be situated close to Hobart and not exactly in Hobart. I choose this hotel as it was attached to the casino. It was fantastic, only a 5 minute drive to the centre of Hobart. I would highly recommend a room high up away from the noise of the casino on a high level. We had an executive harbour room with ocean views to the gorgeous Derwent River. The sunrises and sunsets were amazing over the Derwent River, honestly one of the most prettiest views over Hobart.............
We stayed at Wrest Point Hotel for 9 nights,
We stayed on level 14 and it seemed like our room had been recently refurbished...... I wasn't a fan of the colour of the room a mustard colour, they could of gone for a fresh white or light grey..... the furnishings were also mustard and gold!!
We spent most of the time sight seeing and didn't spend that much time in the room. In the evening when returning from sight seeing our room was always clean and fresh. There was only one time in the 10 days that they must of cleaned the room quickly and left our dirty wine glasses on the table but besides this minimal incident there was no problem at all.
Breakfast was expensive in this hotel $70 for 2 adults and 1 child, we only had breakfast twice downstairs. It was easier and cheaper to drive to a local cafe and have brekkie for a total of $30.
We slept like angels and the beds were so comfortable........
Tasmania in general exceeded my expectations we saw so many wonderful sights such as Coles Bay, Wine Glass Bay, Port Arthur, Hobart, Salmanaca, Tahune Airwalk just to name afew.
The hotel was a great base for us...... our room was fine with one of the most amazing views of Hobart and Sandy Bay (see my photos)

What an excellent review! – we are so glad that your first trip to Tasmania was amazing and on behalf of our team, thank you for allowing us to share this special holiday with you.
Our guests certainly do appreciate our harbour location, and our ample free parking does make Wrest Point the best option for basing a driving holiday.
Wrest Point is a unique hotel in that not only do we offer three distinct classes of accommodation, but, within each accommodation class, we offer numerous décor and colour scheme options. I would always encourage guests to speak with our front desk team as they are experts in our rooms and can always suggest another option in room décor or style.
Thank you for the feedback regarding your room cleanliness and the price of breakfast. I will ensure these items are tabled with the department manages for their feedback.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide your review!
We are eagerly awaiting your next Tasmanian holiday!
