Four of us stayed in this room and as a result, we got a corner room with a nice view. The room/bathroom was clean and the kitchen had decent silverware for us to use. The location was good... it wasn't right next to the city so we had to walk at least 15 to 20 minutes to get to places.

Wow, just terrific. Parking as soon as we arrived. Greeted by a happy receptionist which is always a great start. Had to change my booking which was not a bother at all and the rate they gave was better than booking.com. Room huge. Great bed terrific view. We faced the roundabout. Even with heavy traffic not too noisy at all.... More

Great location, friendly staff and a clean room. You could also do your laundry , special room on the first floor with washing machine and a dryer. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Also enjoyed the free parking.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Not too far to walk into the city centre or down to the waterside - docks, bars, restaurants, etc. Excellent service on check-in and check-out. Staff can't do enough for you Price was very competitive and there's everything you need in your room for a comfortable stay. Rooms are very clean and serviced daily. Complementary... More

This hotel is top notch. It represents real value for money. We stayed in a King Superior room which is located on the 7th floor. The bed is huge and extremely comfortable. The parking is also complimentary but it does fill up quickly. That's not such a worry as there is off street parking free until 8 in the morning.... More

Even after reading reviews I wasn't quite ready for this hotel. Its a great location. I had a car but parked it when I checked in and didn't move it during my two night stay. I walked everywhere. It was so easy to walk to the harbor and Salamanca market. I walked down the hill from the Botanical Gardens which... More

We stayed for two nights and received an excellent rate on a Superior King room. Very spacious and clean. The nice touches like a large flat screen TV, magnifying mirror and bidet in the bathroom and great in-room bar prices were very much appreciated! full buffet breakfast was included in our tariff, and the food range was very good. We... More

Recently stayed at Fountainside for 4 nights..could not fault. Great value for money. Room was spacious for 4 of us, bed and pillows super comfy. Wi-fi worked fine, which was the highlight for my teenage children. No need to shop for any alcohol as the mini bar is cheaper then buying from a liquor store. Kitchenette was great for cooking...

This is an old hotel but has been beautifully refurbished to ensure it is keeping up with the times. The rooms are spacious with plenty of natural light. The windows are obviously double glazed so traffic noise is minimal. The bathroom is great with lovely amenities and, best of all, the king size bed is very comfortable. It is only... More
