We have been going Revoling Restaurant on the 17 floor of Wrest Point for New Year Eve dinner with another couple for 8 years. We discussed other venues, including The Source at Morilla and the GlassHouse at the far end of the new Brook Street Pier. The latter, too expensive and the former too far away. So we went to...

Our usual family Christmas at our home being cancelled owing to others travelling the world, we decided to follow suit. Four days at Wrest Point, including Christmas Day, proved ideal. Wisely, we booked rooms and Christmas Day meals well in advance. These are covered in separate reviews for the dining places at WP. Our stay started off well when we...

Executive Tower King on the 11th floor had fantastic views with great sunrise and sunsets. Clean room - the only disadvantage is no bath. Missed the bath. Riverview Bistro café was informal, relaxed and perfect position by the water to cool down after a long walk. If you are not into the casino you have to love to walk staying...

The hotel was excellent in every respect. Plenty of Options for dining, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The casino is adjacent but does not intrude. If want to use the casino there are plenty of options.

Beautiful location and absolutely wonderful "river/harbour" views. Staff were very, very helpful and kindly patient with tourists from the time of being welcome by the concierge at the car door to the time of departure. The over-priced rooms and limited furniture (one chair for a 3 person room !) are some what basic/minimal and outdated-back to the 1970's (needs to...

The hotel was very nice and clean, I have no complaints about this place. The view from our room was great. Cleaners were quick and punctual at cleaning our room. The buffet was okay, but not amazing (food had been sitting there a bit too long). I would recommend this hotel to other families.

We have stayed at Wrest Point three times now. Each time we have felt welcomed and looked after. The rooms are clean and tidy, the bed comfy and the view is awesome.

As a treat we booked 4 nights in a Suite on the 16th floor. The suite was huge with panoramic views over the water.
