Got this room at a bargain from Wotif! Rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. The bathroom had a hair dryer and a humidifier, too! The complimentary soaps, shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer they provided were all organic and natural. We stayed at the 6th floor, facing the fountain, as requested. The only thing that held me back from giving... More

Absolutely loved stay here. Comfortable room with a fabulous bed. Changed our booking to stay here on our way to Geeveston, complimentary parking, excellent restaurant, cheap mini bar prices. Well appointed rooms and very clean. Would highly recommend stay here. Arrived earlier than expected and they were very accommodating.

We chose this hotel purely on price/availability but found it to be comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. We were well within walking distance of the central harbour, museums, restaurants and shops.

I was super sceptical about staying here - it was so cheap that I was near on convinced that it was going to be a horrible experience. Nonetheless, trying to save money, we booked it in anyway, and I was beyond surprised. The bed was huge AND comfortable, the bathroom was newer and cleaner than some 4 star places I've... More

We only paid $99 per night in the King suite room plus $11.80 for breakfast. The room was spotless with a great view of the fountain. Staff were very helpful as well. The bed was huge and the most comfortable i've ever stayed in by far! I expected it to be much louder considering its placement next to a main... More

We had two nights in Hobart and this was a very good choice overall. Location was just a few minutes walk from the city and waterfront and around eight minutes walk to Salamanca markets. Friendly staff gave an efficient check-in. The room was nicely fitted out and very clean. Bathroom was well designed, although be warned: hot water can be... More

I've stayed here before and went back as it's central and a very comfortable hotel for this price bracket. The rooms are great, have everything you need (including mini bar at shop prices), very comfy beds and modern bathroom. It's much nicer than you expect looking at the rather ugly building from the outside! It is well located and walking... More

We spent 4 nights here (2 x 2 nights, beginning and end of our trip) and our decision was based on other reviews here on tripadvisor, plus a good 2 night minimum stay deal through wotif. The small restaurant was great for us and the breakfasts were great value - so much so that we compared all other locations on... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at Fountainside last weekend. We arrived two hours early and were allowed to check into our room early which was great. Parking was free and easy out the front of the hotel, very convenient. Our room on the 6th floor was very new looking and well appointed with a comfy king size... More
