Shopping around for reasonable priced hotel, this was one of them. And to my expectation, I was extremely happy with the accommodation and also the location. On the fringe of the CDB and shore-front, it was all within reach, 6 minute walk to the Mall and another 6-9 minutes to the shore-front. Free parking was included which was fantastic and... More

Hobart is small and this location is not far from central Hobart and Salamanca,maybe 10-15 minutes walk. Wifi works Free car park Showers nil problems to use and has hot water (you won't believe how many places I've been too where adjusting the water to warm takes ages) Clean and big room Bigger TV than expected Don't have to chase...

The rooms at fountainside are clean and comfortable. The only complaint I have about the room is that the king mattress had a slightly hollowed out area on each side where people had been sleeping, and the middle of the mattress was more raised. It didn't ruin my nights sleep but I noticed it whenever I rolled towards my partner.... More

Very nice appointed hotel, centrally located close to the pier, Salamanca Markets and Hobarts CBD. although breakfast was not included it only cost approx $12 per person with a nice section of cereals and hot food. Ladies on reception need to be a bit more acknowledging when guests walk into hotel. All in all a great located hotel in the... More

We had a top floor room with a king sized bed. Although this room was a very typical hotel room I was pleased with the cleanliness of the room and comfort of the bed. The location is within walking distance of the waterfront, parks and Elizabeth mall. The Queen's Domain made a beautiful view from our top floor room and... More

Stayed here while in Hobart. Good location within walking distance to the Marina and a lot of restaurants. Room was very comfortable, and quiet and made for a good nights sleep. Would stay here again.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised, the rooms are large. Your located 5min from everything you'll ever need, There is a laundry onsite with $4 washing and drying and free powder. The Free WIFI was super quick for me (25Mbs⬇️) and the best part the staff were really friendly and helpful 😄

Stayed 5 days to explore Hobart and surrounds before driving around Tasmania. A great location whether you're walking, hire a car or using ferries from the port. Easy access to airport. Room facilities above average and clean. Restaurant is quite good. Staff are friendly. Not as close to restaurants and bars as other similar hotels, but they are walking or... More

You can never judge a book by its cover! On face value, this is nothing more than throwback to the 70's "red brick" hotel. However, the stay was absolutely wonderful! The staff was friendly, helpful and informed. The location was perfect with easy access to parklands, running tracks, aquatic centre and food outlets. The walk to the wharf and city... More

We booked 2 rooms for 5 nights. We found the staff at reception helpful and friendly during out stay. The Wifi was free but a little annoying, iPad was ok but iMac and iPhones kept needing the password to be filled in all the time and the system kicks you off if you pause for 10 minutes. Yeah...annoying. The king... More
