We stayed at Fountainside for 2 nights. The hotel is located right off the highway and is a short walk to downtown Hobart - both the shopping area as well as the pier. They have free parking which is great.
The room was large and airy. The bed was super comfy and the sheets soft. The best part about the hotel is that their minibar prices are very attractive. We usually stay away from minibars because the markup is so high but we happily dug in here.
One very minor issue with our room was that there was a strange smell coming out of the sink. Also it took a lot of patience to get the shower temperature right because the controls are on one wall and the shower head comes out of the other. Minor issues.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would come back.
