Great couples hotel

Loved our stay. Plenty of restaurant choices. Room was roomy and clean (even though we were in the older wing) with free wifi that worked well. Great views from a lot of the hotel.

Disappointed stay

First of all I have to say this is the second time that we have stayed in Wrest Point because the first time back in several years ago the experience was pretty good. This time we booked the water edge room only to find that it is NOT in the main tower, took a long walk through the hallway and several doors to get to it - the corridor had a funny smell and old looking room. There was not once mentioned during the booking that the water edge room was not located in the main towel, but it's located behind the main building, in a motor inn. The room service wasn't great either: one of the three days we didn't get any replacement of milk bath tub wasn't clean properly as there was still hair on the side of it after we have come back in the afternoon. Overall we were very disappointed with the stay and thinking that we may not return again.

Great place to stay

Enjoyed 5 nights in a Waters Edge Room - fabulous views! Staff were welcoming & helpful & the room was clean and spacious. Highlight of the trip was dinner at the revolving restaurant - excellent food & service. Would stay here again.

Highly dissapointing

This is the typical low grade casino hotel experience, with all you can eat buffets filled with barely edible food and sub standard amenities (like the 12 meter pool in the basement, seriously you could swim it in 4 strokes). Plus it is so far away from anywhere you would actually want to go that you have to get a cab or drive everywhere. If you are keen to slap poker machines while gorging yourself on roast beef, gravy, and all you can eat soft serve icecream then this place is for you! If not then for the love of god do not even consider this horrible place.

Good, not Great

Great if you plan to spend time in and around the Casino (shows etc), but a bit far out of town if you want to be in the action. Good room but I suspect you could get nicer for the same price in town.
