My wife and I had a mountain view room on level 6. The views of Mt Wellington and the bridge were terrific. We had breakfast included in our rate and also the loft Bistro and Pier One Restaurant - all meals were very good and the staf were excellent.

The Wrest Point Hotel Hobart is a good hotel with fabulous amazing views. The staff is brilliant they are on their game about looking after you. But the decor is dated it needs a facelift. Also they advertised a hairdresser Salon and they wasn't one there. As the a staff member sent me up to make a booking and I...

We stayed here for one night on the second floor, our room was facing part mountain and sandy bay road. Unfortunately there was not a great view because of low clouds and fog, but other than that it didn't spoil our comfort in our room which was set out quite well, clean and warm but it is a little dated...

This is our second stay here and it was absolutely brilliant, yet again! The OUTSTANDING employee, who went over and above, with exceptional customer service, was Porter, David (Dave); his attentions to detail, professionalism and making us feel very welcomed to Wrest Point, made us feel a million dollars! Thank you, we will be back 😊

Certainly not what it used to be! This property was a premier location in not only Tasmania but all of Australia at one time. Something very special. I remember visiting often with my parents in the late 70's and it was a very special, high quality establishment. Its now quite sad. Little more than a glorified Taberet. Tacky and cheap...

First time in Tasmania I was looking for a room with a view close to the Harbour. This hotel did not disappoint. Got a nice view over Mt Wellington from the 9th floor.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a Waters Edge room and found the bed very comfortable, (which is what put this to a 4) the cleaning standard good, and the view lovely. The soundproofing between rooms needs upgrading though. Unfortunately we could hear everything being said by the guy in the next room.
