Staff very friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. Room and bathroom facilities good and clean. Room was maintained daily which impressed us, as we have found other hotels let it slide. Breakfast and restaurant good with a relaxed atmosphere with friendly helpful staff. Car parking at the front of the hotel was adequate and you felt your car... More

The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly. The restaurant was so good that we didn't want to eat anywhere else! Breakfast buffet was also excellent. The mini bar was well stocked and was at supermarket prices. Great location too! Overall was a great place to stay, wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when in Hobart!

Our 14 day Tasmanian Coach Tour started with 4 nights at the Fountainside & proved to be just right for our 48 senior passengers - most comfortable accommodation, wonderful meals, & professional friendly service from Lynelle & her staff - lovely location, with easy access to main CBD - thoroughly recommend.

A great hotel. Was refurbish a few years ago but is still looking great. Huge flat screen TV, king size beds that are super comfy, nice and large rooms, large shower. The little restaurant in this motel is great. Super value, quality food that you would expect to pay far more for in a 'trendy' restaurant. Drinks are also great... More

Stayed at the Fountainside in early August this year. This is the second time we have stayed there and we were not disappointed. On this occasion we stayed on the top floor in a King room. Everything was fine ( the japanese style toilet/bidet was a pleasant surprise). Again the very reasonable mini bar prices ( store prices !!!) and... More

This hotel is a little gem! Not far from the wharf, CBD and markets all within walking distance. Recently renovated everything is neat and clean, with a huge king size bed, hot and powerful shower and nice toiletries. Prices in the restaurant and mini bar are so reasonable. Found it cheaper to eat and drink in the hotel than out... More

We had a very comfortable three night stay in Hobart this weekend. The room was clean and well equipped, with a huge king size bed, hot and powerful shower and nice toiletries. We were on the fourth floor and had no problem with traffic noise (come on people, it's Hobart - there is no traffic!) The mini bar is indeed... More

The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Service is friendly and efficient. Wifi works well and there is even a computer on the ground floor with free printing available for guests to use. Mini bar prices are amazing ($1.50 for a can of soft drink and $3.50 for a bottle of beer). Restaurant serves decent food also at really... More

Don't be put off by the slightly tired looking exterior, this is a great place to stay. I stayed in a king bed room on the 6th floor. It was quiet, spacious and well appointed. The bathroom had a spacious shower and was clean and well laid I out. The staff were all very helpful and obliging and accommodated my... More
