The Fountainside is a semi-renovated mid-rise hotel on the edge of Downtown Hobart. It is within walking distance of the waterfront, Salamanca, and the harbor seafront restaurants.
Location advantages: it is convenient for day trips out of Hobart and within walking distance of the wharves/restaurants in Hobart.
Location disadvantage: it is located on a "roundabout" and noisy...even on the top
renovated floors. If you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. If you are a heavy sleeper, "have at it!". It is a good value for the money.
Breakfast is about AUD$11.80 and is sufficient to get your day started. The evening meals are adequate if you are too tired to go out, after a full day of exploration. The soup and salad bar are good; the main courses are nice and all in the low AU$20 range.
Parking can be a problem if you come back after 6 pm, but management will always find a parking place for your car.
