Water Edge hotel within the Wrest Point Casino complex is a restored Art Deco building. Sadly the restoration is not very sympathetic to the old building but at least none of the old features have been removed. The rooms have been modernised and are clean, comfortable and roomy. The ensuite bathroom was small and but clean. The staff are attentive....

The views, the service, the amenities and the staff were amazing. I would prefer a shower that wasn't over a bath but the bed was super comfy and everything else was top notch with an incredibly low room rate! Would definitely come back.

We were very happy overall with Wrest Point. Yes it is old but very well maintained and clean. It's a step back in time and almost Art Deco. The staff were excellent, well trained and friendly. The views superb!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Water Edge accommodation at Wrest Point - very true to its name. This part of the hotel has echoes of its Art Deco past. Whilst there are some older aspects to this hotel it is clean, functional, quiet and comfortable. The water views were lovely. I slept really well in the bed too...

I walked into main hotel foyer, it was my first time here. The foyer had the smell of stew, reminded me of a nursing home, it was not pleasant. I then saw the buffet restaurant to the side of reception. Staff were lovely so no issues there. To get to The Waters Edge you had to walk up stairs and...

Great facilities very close to the CBD of Hobart. Restaurants and Coffee shops offer excellent food, off street parking close to rooms which are quiet and cosy Swimming pool available. The Art Deco feel of the Waters Edge rooms are just wonderful and with views of the river and the hills beyond, it set the scene for our very enjoyable...

We arrived by car and from the moment we stepped out of the car the service was impeccable. We stayed in a Water Edge Room and after initially finding it a long walk from reception, was soon engaged and intrigued by this special setting. The quality of the woodwork and building was far superior in past days - an amazing...

Beware: you need to walk hundreds of meters (can be more than 500 meters in some cases) from where you park to your room, most of it under open sky (imagine it's raining and you have luggage). The nearest parking spots (very limited) are almost full always. You may need to park in "multi-level" car park "nearby"! Room was average,...

The room was ok, very clean and bed comfortable view was lovely. Bathroom small and shower over bath not easy for me . Must say the staff were very helpful...
