Won't be back. Tired and past it's used by date. Needs a complete refit. Disappointed overall and did not meet my expectations. Would advise others to stay clear. Room was clean and that was the only thing positive to say about the whole experience.

The hotel was conveniently located in the city with great views over the water. Check-in was easy and the reception staff were friendly and efficient. There was complimentary on-site parking and w fi, which we really appreciated. We had a Wateredge room which had a lovely view and was very clean with all the amenities you could need for a...

Heading to Wrest Point, I didn't have high expectations. First casino in Australia, old building, lots of 'tired' words in TripAdvisor reviews. And yet, I really quite liked it! The old concrete tower block which houses the hotel is dated, but still appeals in an odd way. Reception is manned by friendly staff in pleasant is not spectacular surroundings -...

We ordered Squid as an Entree. It came with 4 sallad leaves, a mini dish of about 3 tiny squids and 2 cut up pieces of squids, which were really chewy, in a fatty sauce and another fatty chili dip and nothing else. That dish was over $15 and not worth the price.

Hotel a bit tired. We ate in The Loft Restuarant which was average. Our room had magnificent views overlooking the bay. We were on the 12th floor. Room was clean and comfortable. Easy parking and easy to find way from airport in our hire car.

Clean comfortable good condition but needing a up grade. It is the hotel by the Austalias first casino. Built in the 70tys and starting to show its age. Its not a big hotel and being round there was no dust in the corners. But a good place to stay and rest for a rew days.

I stayed at Wrest Point in one of the Water Edge rooms for six nights while attending a conference held at Wrest Point. At checkin, I was told that the hotel required payment up front and also that it would impose a 3% surcharge for payment by American Express. This was not a problem but I found it annoying that...

We stayed on the 9th floor in the tower, tip, be sure you ask for a room in the tower with a harbour view, otherwise you will find yourself in the old part of the building without a view. The room was clean with a full bar fridge and serviced daily. Staff were really friendly but was disappointed with the...
