Don't be put off by the slightly tired looking exterior, this is a great place to stay. I stayed in a king bed room on the 6th floor. It was quiet, spacious and well appointed. The bathroom had a spacious shower and was clean and well laid I out. The staff were all very helpful and obliging and accommodated my... More

We liked this place so much that we extended our stay by two days to six. We arrived in August 2014 and stayed in room 41 on the fourth floor. We are an older couple, and probably harder to please than most, especially if we feel that value-for-money is not being had. The good news is that the Fountainside met... More

I really enjoyed my stayed at Fountainside Hotel. Room is clean and spacious. City centre within walking distance. Very near Salamanca Market I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends / relatives. If i am planning for another Hobart tour i will come definitely return to this hotel as staffs are very friendly and helpful.

I had an interesting request with a delivery of some health requirements before my stay. The hotel obliged and treated my request as run of the mill and went out to double check on a shower request we had. The staff were friendly at check in and check out with assistance for local dining options. The toiletries, coffee making facilities... More

It is no doubt that the hotel is so value for money, what do u expect from 90 USD? The location is superb, just a 5 minutes walk to the pier. The room looks okay too. However, the service can be better: 1. I booked for 2 nights online and the front desk just mistakenly booked me in for 1... More

The room was clean and modern, and very comfortable. I was especially impressed by the mini-bar prices - they were very reasonable, which was a very nice surprise! Reception was very friendly, and the on-site free parking very convenient. The location was great, with only a 10 minute walk to the water, and only around 20 minute walk to the... More
