My husband and I stayed at the Fountainside for 3 nights. The room was comfortable and clean. All the staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Extras such as minibar, breakfast and dinner were very reasonably priced. Wine with dinner was only $4 for a small bottle. We shared a $19 bottle which was priced much higher at another restaurant.

Sometimes tripadvisor reviews do not reflect the reality of the property when you actually arrive. In other words, the place isn't as good as you expected. As we drove up to this hotel, I was a little worried this might be the case, but NO it was not. The outside of the hotel appears a bit dated, but inside, our... More

We stayed recently in room 37 on the 3rd floor in a Studio apartment. It was a good size, bed is super comfy. There is fridge, hotplate, cutlery, microwave, toaster, crockery, scissors and kitchen gadgets. The mini bar is well stocked and cheap compared to every hotel I have ever stayed at before e.g $2.50 for bag of Natural company... More

Very clean and nice place! It's near to the highways so getting out of Hobart is easy and near to the wharf, near to the shopping belt so it's near to the restaurants (within 15mins of walking distance). Recommended for those who want to explore Hobart and nearby towns! Though breakfast choices are limited, they are still tasty!

We were 6 blokes 3 in each room. The hotel gave us 2 really comfortable fold out beds. Made it a cheap 2 nights. The hotel is waking distance to Salamanca bars and restaurants. We walked up to the cascade brewery which took about 40 mins which was fantastic.

Unable to stay at our usual accommodation due to extra high occupancy rates we managed to book the last room available at Fountainside. And how impressed we were . Stayed in a King Superior room on 7th floor, quiet and wonderful views, room large and bathroom impressive. Breakfast reasonably priced, good selection., only gripe the toasters,far too slow ! One...

The Fountainside is a lovely hotel. It's not got anything particularly outstanding the recommend it but it ticks all the boxes - clean, spacious, newly refurbished etc. They have free wifi for guests, free parking (I was concerned about finding a park but one was always available), affordable minibar, room service and a great central location. The staff were friendly... More

There wasn't anything particularly special about this hotel. The hotel staff were not overly friendly and the breakfast ($11) was not the best. The hotel location was good as it was only a few blocks from downtown and there was "free" WiFi (but lets be honest, is there really such a thing?). By far the best thing about this hotel... More

This is our first trip to Hobart and what a great start. Love the free parking at the hotel and love that you can easily walk in to town. The shower is very much to my liking too as it is high enough to stand under and really powerful too, both points sadly lacking in many hotels. The bed is... More
