This hotel is in a great central location. It's within walking distance to a lot of great restaurants and attractions in the central area of Hobart. No problems with checking in, the staff are very friendly. The room was clean and warm. We did find it a little tricky exiting from Sackville St onto Brooker Avenue during busy traffic, expecially...

Great room and at a good price range. I chose a superior room and on the top floor was away from the street noises. Every effort taken to make the stay comfortable. Very convenient to all that Hobart has to offer and off street parking also available.

And the buffet breakfast for $11 pp so cheap and was great value and lovely. And free parking on site. Hope to go there on... More

We took a superior room on the 7th floor. Great view out over Queens Domain and the fountain which is beautiful when lit at night as it constantly changes color. We were particularly impressed with the outstanding value for money the mini bar is the cheapest we have ever seen at $1.50 for a soft drink. We decided to have... More

Before I say anything I can't help but mention how cheap the mini bar was! We usually have a strict rule when we stay at a hotel that we don't waste money on overpriced mini bar items. For example, a small pringles usually goes for $6 in most hotels, here they were only $2.50. And a bottle of Premium James... More

Me and my friend do enjoy our stay here during our trip to Tasmania, Hobart city. Although only a night stay in this hotel but we do really meet friendly and helpful staffs. Beside, hotel located in great location ... Affordable price, with reserved car park space.

My partner and I stayed at Fountainside when we were in Hobart for the weekend to watch an AFL game. To be honest, I was a little worried that it might be run down from the photos but I was completely wrong - it ended up ticking all the boxes. The location is great. It's within walking distance of the... More

The Fountainside Hotel is probably the cheapest hotel I have stayed in for years, but it is not cheap and nasty. It is great value. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The wifi is reliable. I arrived at the hotel around 9am and an effort was made to find me a room rather than just storing my luggage and... More

The interior looks better than the pics shown. Friendly staff, clean room and comfy bed. We did multiple booking, the staff is a bit confused but they sort it out quickly, but we had to change the keycard though. Down side --- housekeeping took my soap out of my soapbox and placed it to the tray, didn't change the cups... More

Right beside the fountain at the entrance to Hobart city, the first stop in from the airport, this hotel is in a great location. The city is a few blocks' stroll away, with Pilgrim coffee, the royal Hobart hospital, and a Woolworth's all in easy reach. Parking is complimentary, there is free wifi, and the minibar prices are very affordable... More
