We were very happy with this hotel, two or three blocks from the main business/shopping area and also ideally placed if you are entering Hobart by car from the North (as most touring holiday makers will), Also, it's usually the first drop off and last pick-up point for the airport bus- which means you don't have to tour round other...

Stayed at this hotel early March and choose based on trip advisor reviews, price and location. Nice, clean hotel with everything I needed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Had a very good night's sleep - bed was very comfortable! Rooms were fairly modern don't let the slightly dated reeption area and slow lift fool you. Never usually bother with snacks... More

We booked a 3 night package & were really pleased with the room. As stated previously the free parking & cheap mini bar are great. We made use of the laundry & did find that it takes 3 goes with dryer to get clothes dry, so be prepared with the coins. We didn’t have a problem with noise at all.... More

Nice hotel close to most things. Good value for money (even the mini bar). Friendly staff. The room we stayed in had been recently renovated with a 50" tv. Nice.

We just spent 3 nights at Fountainside and were thoroughly impressed with the hotel. My husband and I rated it as the best that we had stayed out over our 2 week touring holiday of Tassie. The room was quite large and very tastefully furnished. We both thought it had just been refurbished but were told that they had about... More

I normally do not write reviews but this hotel deserves a good one. When we first saw the outside I was a little disappointed. Once inside everything changed. The staff was courteous and helpful. The rooms are the real jewels. Big and roomy with everything in like new condition. The linens towels were high quality and to top it off... More

The outside of the hotel looks a little shabby - needs an update. The lobby is alittle tired and also in need of revamp but the rooms are great. They have obviously been updated recently. The bed was super comfortable. The location was a little inconvenient - it was a long walk to North Hobart for dinner. But about a... More

I have just spent 7 nights at this hotel and you can't go past it for value for money. As mentioned by many other reviewers, the location is great and the free parking is an added bonus. It's location means it is very easy to get in and out of the city for day trips. The meals while nothing to... More
