Hi, We stayed one night (Thurs 1 Nov 2012). We are a family with two kids aged 10 and 12. We are generally happy to stay 3.5 star. We are happy if accommodation is clean, safe, well located and it doesn't have to have the very latest in decor.
We were very happy with the Fountainside. We arrived around 8.30pm and were leaving the next morning. We were able to walk the 5 mins to the waterfront and there is a Woolworths also within walking distance.
The room was clean and quiet. The room was an L shape so that when you first enter there is a kitchenette plus eating area in the corner of the room - has a corner window above it to look out at the view. The table and bench seating is like in a caravan - built into the corner.
Then there is a bathroom - clean, powerful shower. Not the latest tiles nor taps but didn't bother us.
Next is the lounge/bedroom area. It had a queen bed and 2 single beds with tv.
The only odd thing was the large step into the room from the main door - a bit difficult to have to lift suitcases over it instead of just wheeling in but really not a problem.
I would recommend this hotel - good location, quiet, and well equipped for a family.
