Stayed 6 nights whilst the Wooden Boat Festival was on - great value hotel and could walk to the festival. Staff helpful and friendly: went out of their way to accommodate us for an extra night. Fresh apples on the counter to munch on whilst walking to town - about 10 minutes. Stayed on the 7th floor - good views...

All the positive things said about the Fountainside Hotel are spot on. This hotel has generous sized rooms and bathrooms, which are clean, well serviced, and the prices are good value for what you get, including the mini bar and the breakfast. The location is a bit out of the main area, although we don't mind walking. We had three...

I was very happy with this good value for money no frills hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and had a view of the fountain and the Domain. Breakfast was very nice and good value.Staff were always helpful and friendly. The harbour front is only a 15 minute walk away which was no problem for me.

On arrival we were a little dismayed by the outside appearance, brown! Once inside the receptionist and staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms may be in need of some refurbishment ( would be called shabby chic in London) but everywhere was perfectly clean. Comfy bed, great shower and nice toiletries. We ate in the restaurant and the...

We stayed here for 3 nights during the first weekend of February. I am proud of myself to have chosen this hotel for our Hobart stay. Let me tell you why: - Its location is central, 5 mins walking to the seaside where you can find plenty of restaurants. Also, same distance to Salamanca Market if you are staying there...

We had a lovely time at the Fountainside and will definitely return. My mattress had a dip in it which was a tad uncomfortable on the first night but I couldn't fault anything else. My partner's mattress was completely fine though. The location is great and the parking is super convenient. There is a 24h McDonalds a few blocks away...

The room was beautiful and spacious. Easy access to the laundry. The restaurant was excellent too. The location was central to all things that we wanted to go to and see. The view of the fountain from our room was fantastic. We wish we had stayed longer and will definitely stay again on our return to Hobart.
