“Great stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Three night stay during the very busy Hobart Regatta weekend. Booked s/c apartment for 2 people. Comfy room was excellent. The biggest plus was the restaurant. Ate breakfast 3 morning but dinner only once. Dinner was great with $4 spirits. Main meal with soup and salad bar $23 - great value. Very easy walk to all of Hobarts attractions. All staff pleasant and helpful.Highly recommend staying here to anyone.

We stayed here for the 1st 2nites & last nite of our week long Tassie road trip. Was greeted both times by wonderful reception staff named Megan & Alisha, they were both full of friendly info.The room was comfy with no faults. U can walk down to many nice bars, cafes etc. This hotel is clean & we would recommend it & we stayed on the 7th floor. Enjoyed port Arthur & Salamanca cafes & bars.

From the other reviews, we thought we were in for a treat with this hotel. Well, if you like resting in the middle of the intersection of a highway and roundabout, perhaps Fountainside is for you. The only view is of roaring traffic. What a sterile, noisy environment. The overworked staff found us an alternative place to stay after a couple of hours delay. The venue is clean but a long walk from most of tourist interest. Avoid this one!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Stayed there in November for the Tasmania leg of our trip. Nice, unpretentious, 20 min walk from downtown, mostly industrial views from windows, chemical smell in the room, truly excellent breakfast and very nice inexpensive mini bar. Parking hard to find in late afternoons. A couple of very decent dinners in the restaurant when we were too tired to walk back out to town - the lamb was awesome and I don't often do lamb. Good value for the money but really not luxurious. Internet connection very cheap but not reliable. Not easy to find. Got lost three times when trying to get back.

Room was a good size, beautifully made up and clean. Great spot easy walk to docks and city centre. Lots of restaurants around for meals. Free parking. Free internet. Breakfast was about $11.00 per head with all the usual choices hot and cold. Staff were friendly and helpful when requested.

Fountainside was extremely clean and very comfortable - plenty of space and excellent service. We had a room with a queen bed and two singles immaculately made up and with plenty of towels and toiletries. A short walk to everything - I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I simply booked a double room and was very impressed.
