“Pleasantly surprised,Great Hotel”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

When we arrived here we didn't think much of it from the outside but once walk in its a nice foyer,greeted by very friendly staff who are happy to talk about what Tazzy has to offer and were interested in where we were from.
Once in the room we were again pleasantly surprised at the modern fit out.What we were most happy with was free wifi,how cheap the mini bar was and how cheap and good the buffet breaks was.
I would definitely stay and recommend anyone stay here and it's also really centroll to everything.We didn't use the car for 2 days,just walked.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family

Stayed here at the New Year and had a great time. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Add to that the location to the City and you couldn't stay at a better place. Although we didn't use it, the Mini bars the cheapest I've ever seen!

We had two nights in a family room.

Very clean and tidy and would recommend. It wasn't what I would say cheap but I don't think any accomodation in Hobart is. Room was $180 for the night and we had three in there.

Only criticism was the room was not made up after our first night stay. I guess for a proper hotel this should have been done.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of the main CBD and waterfront and has overnight parking included.

This hotel provides good quality accommodation, free wi-fi, professional and helpful staff and outstanding value for meals and drinks. It is very well located and easy to get to via the airport bus which drops and picks up at the door.

Room Tip: All the same! Lower floor is easier though.

The Fountainside is spotlessly clean, has generous size rooms and bathroom, all the things you want including very comfortable bed and pillows, plus the mini bar prices are basically bottle shop rather than the rip-off prices you get at most hotel.

It is ideally located only a few minutes walk from the docks and Salamanca Place etc and has free car parking. We have stayed here many times and we don't even think about going anywhere else.

Spent only one night at the Fountianside. The parking can be difficult but we managed. The front desk was there but less than engaging. The room was small and just adequate, nothing to make you want to smile upon entering. And the elevator was scary....making loud bumps when traveling up or down. If we are ever back in Hobart, we will no doubt look for a different hotel arrangement.
