We stayed for one night at Fountainside hotel. The hotel room was clean and had everything we needed. The location was close to everything and easy to find. The breakfast was also good and very reasonably priced. All staff we spoke to were super polite and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely quiet, we couldn't...

Looks can sometimes be deceiving !! And certainly the outside appearance of this hotel can discourage you, however nothing about this hotel is discouraging. Fantastic value for money, free wifi, free parking, massive TV! Great location! Breakfast at 11.50 was great with a great selection of hot and continental foods.

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of a trip around Tasmania as it was a fairly cheap and well rated place. We walked in to the room and were blown away, it could have been out of a hotel twice the price! Then we saw the minibar prices...$3.5 for a Boags Premium? Yes Please! Finally, a hotel...

The Fountainside was a great choice based upon TA reviews. My husband and I stayed three nights in a studio apartment. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The room was large and well-laid out. We had planned to eat breakfast in our room, but we ended up eating at the hotel dining room because the food was excellent and...

Stayed here for three nights in January 2014. Arrived about 10.30am hoping to leave our cases but happily our room was ready and we could move right in. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Our only negative with the hotel that being next to a busy roundabout, it could be a little noisy. Staff were friendly (as indeed...

Situated on the North side of the CBD - this is an excellent opportunity to walk through/explore a different part of the lovely CBD each time you go to the dock or Salamanca place. 5mins to Elizabeth St mall. Only a 15min walk to Salamanca place (filled with lovely restaurants and galleries). Hotel rooms are large, spacious, good quality beds,...

The Fountainside Hotel has large, recently renovated rooms. I stayed in a King Room, this room had a very comfortable bed, large window facing a park and the Tasman Bridge. It is about a 10 minute walk through a few backstreets to Constitution Dock with waterfront restaurant's, and a 15 min walk to Salamanca precinct. It is close to the...

The hotel is in a great location 5 min casual stroll to Constitution dock, a further 5 minutes to Salamanca Market. Our room on the top floor was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast is very reasonably priced, as was the mini bar. When we return to Hobart would definitely be staying here again...

Well. Free Wi-Fi! Mini-bar at shop prices, $1.50 a can of soft drink, $5.00 a premix can. How can you beat this anywhere in the world, let alone Hobart. $11.80 breakfast, with all the usual items. Comfortable beds and clean rooms, double glazing so that you don't hear the traffic from the roundabout below,(we were on the 3rd floor.) Cannot...

As so many people have noted, this hotel is well located and offers very good value. The exterior is not particularly attractive but our room was spacious, with a very comfortable bed and a spotlessly clean bathroom which seems to have been recently refurbished. We enjoyed the very reasonably priced buffet breakfast but did note that on some occasions the...
