Will stay anytime. Located on edge of city centre it provides an easy walk to harbour, Salamanca market and shops. Good nicely priced restaurant. Very comfortable room with large television. Small kitchen and dining space too.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. Check in has always been flawless. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great value, and also the mini bar. The staff are polite, friendly and always helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any travellers or corporate guests. There is a little traffic noise,... More

I recently stayed at the Fountainside for the second time. This review is much the same as my previous one with the same complaints. This could be one of the best hotels in Hobart and I would have given it a perfect score except for a couple of really annoying issues. The first is the traffic noise which is very... More

This hotel is great value and has a great location. Rooms are comfortable and hotel dining is very affordable. Buffet breakfast only $11.80 per person. Mini bar prices are lowest I have seen anywhere with cans of drink at $1.50 and Boags premium Beer at $3.50 a bottle. No gym in the hotel but for the price I am more... More

First off, can I just say how awesome the water pressure is in the shower! The shower in our room was even better than ours at home. The rooms are clean and only a short walk to the CBD. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a good choice for an economical short stay in Hobart. Located alongside a major traffic roundabout, the Fountainside might at first sight appear to be a dodgy choice for light sleepers. But even though our twin room was on the 1st floor the sound proofing was sufficient to ensure a decent night's sleep. The pluses are the good... More

I was only in Hobart for one night and had dinner and breakfast during my stay. Was totally blown away by the room space and cleanliness. Both meals where delicious. I had the soup, porterhouse and raspberry chocolate dessert.... 2 glasses of wine and then a full breakfast. On checkout the total restaurant bill was $46.... i went through the... More

We have stayed in Hobart for two nights in Fountainside Hotel. The room was modern and quite spacious, the parking was free but a touch difficult to use for us getting used to drive on the left with a largish SUV (it is underground and the spots are quit narrow). The service was very good, a young man at check-in... More
