I had a room on the first floor, and it was a little noisy early morning and late afternoon. It was not enough to disturb me, though. Handy location to the city. Restaurant provided lovely basic dinner. I would definitely stay here again.

Great value hotel with friendly staff, free parking, free wifi and movies, clean rooms and cheap breakfast. Thanks trip advisor for the tip. Loved our stay. Easy walk to the city and marina area. The hotel looks a little drab on the outside but has been nicely renovated inside. Rooms are quite large with very clean and fresh linen and bathroom condiments. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great

I have stayed here many times, with my husband and with friends. It never ceases to amaze. Comfort, cleanliness, service and location. As usual, we all appreciate the breakfasts, dinners and mini bar prices. Best hotel ever.

This is a fab hotel! You won't be disapointed. Great location (at the theatre district, near the wharves and Salamanca), friendly staff, super clean rooms, free wi-fi, carparking, cheap mini bar and breakfast and comfy beds. Simply ideal. Will recommend to all who visit Hobart.

Room Tip: Think they are all good. Glazing on windows so quite all around.

Excellent value, clean and modern. We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant which is great value though the menu is limited so you wouldn't eat there every day if staying for more than 2 - 3 days.

We would definitely stay here again but also recommend their sister apartment hotel (St Ives) near Battery Point.

Only potential downside is the traffic noise which didn't bother us.

By the way, Fountainside and St Ives are the only hotels we have been to and used the mini bar!

I spent two weekend nights in this hotel, and have no complaints at all. The staff were very friendly - even when I rocked up at 4.a.m. - and the rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is located near a major roundabout but there was no traffic noise at all. It is a pleasant 15 minute walk down to the waterfront and the major attractions. With all this, it is less expensive than you would expect. If I'm down there again, this will be my choice.

A little rough looking on the exterior, this hotel is fabulous.
The staff are friendly, the rooms spacious, clean, and inviting. Large bathroom and a great and well priced minibar.
Comfy bed and despite the location near abusy round about you can't hear a thing.
