We stayed here over Easter weekend in April with our two 7 yr olds. It wasn't easy to find a place since it was a long weekend and we needed a room to accommodate all of us. Rooms seemed to be expensive for what u got (and many could not fit all of us in 1 room or wanted to charge us extra per person/night fees which I find is so unfair when u travel with young children). After lots of research and reading the many good reviews we went with fountainside and were not disappointed. This is not a fancy place and from the outside actually looks a little run down, but I guess they have done extensive renos and the rooms themselves look great. Ours was spotless and well appointed. We had a queen and 2 singles which was perfect. The room was large with a eating area and a well equipped Mini kitchen just as u walked in. Great to have breakfast with the family. Nothing bad to say about the rooms at all. Wifi not the best (we had to use it by the door but it was complimentary so can't complain. Other great feature was that it was a great location to shopping and short walk to wharf and other attractions. I would definitely recommend this hotel to families or people looking for value for money.

We just stayed six nights at Fountainside, and loved every one of them. Great rooms, good staff, very reasonable prices, even the mini-bar drinks and snacks are a bargain! Sure, the hotel looks like crap from the outside, but it's on the inside that matters. And that's where they've put a lot of effort fixing it up.

Room Tip: We opted for the top floor (7th), and loved it!

We found this to be a wonderful place to stay. The room rates are very reasonable for the location which is easy walking to the wharf. The mini bar,wines and breakfast are user friendly. The wifi works great in the rooms. The rooms are large and clean. The staff very friendly and efficient. We highly recommend.
