This is the second time we've stayed here as visitors to Hobart and I'd return again. The hotel is well located, about 15 minutes walk to Salamanca and 5 minutes into the centre. Rooms are spacious, light and spic and span. The Breakfast buffet is reasonably priced, with good variety. The dinner menu is inexpensive, but not particularly exciting. Staff... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel, it was clean, the bed really comfortable, staff helpful and friendly, location pretty central, we were on the 4th floor and not near the lift (which would be noisy I reackon) so street noise wasn't a problem. Good value for money for a short city break.

We had a one night stay at this good motel. The room was clean & tidy. The king bed was good. A couple of down lights did not work and I could not log on to the free wifi. Breakfast was good value and nice food. The staff were friendly & helpful. We had three rooms and everybody was happy

This hotel might not have the harbour views that Hobart is famous for, but it still makes for a great choice of accommodation, especially if you're looking for somewhere that is one of the cheaper places to stay in the city. While it's not on the water, it is still convenient and is within easy walking distance to all the... More

We stayed at the Fountainside Hotel in Hobart for 8 days. This place is but 5 minutes from the CBD, to the wharf, the popular Salamanca market, and its other attraction. We walked to all these locations. The hotel itself is great, the staff are so helpful, the massive room was so fresh and clean, linen was changed daily and... More

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
