“Surprising”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We chose this hotel based on price and the king size bed. We were really amazed at the beautifully room. The prices of the mini bar were really reasonable and so was the restaurant. Food was nice. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have had on the trip. I would definitely return.

I picked this hotel because of the great reviews here in Trip Advisor and the hotel is what everyone said it would be.
Spacious room with huge T.V and quality bathroom products; tick!
Friendly and very helpful staffs; tick!
Great location; tick!
Value for money; double tick! I love that the room bar prices are just the normal shop price (might be even cheaper than the shop for some items) for example, can of coke $1.50, Scotch & coke $5.00 etc. Breakfast for hotel guest is only $11.80 for a full buffet and dinner cost only $23.80 which consist of soup of the day, salad (from salad bar) and main of your choice (a la carte portion not scaled down version).
I could not recommed this hotel enough. We certainly will stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for top floors

If you enjoy high quality in spacious surroundings, you will love Fountainside. The rooms are great.....we slept so well I our 7th floor room. Breakf,ast was good value, and the staff friendly and helpful. It was an easy walk to the Docks, Salamanca, and even Battery Point.

Room Tip: Traffic could be a bit of a problem, so the higher rooms are best....

The Fountainside, is a great place to stay in Hobart. We stayed in atwin room, which was very spacious & clean. Staff are exceptional.. well done. Breakfast is a buffet & for $11.80 per person it was fantastic value. The only fault I could find was we stayed on the first floor where we found traffic noise was aproblem at times, so next time I'll be asking for a higher floor to spend my time in Hobart .

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors as Hotel is on a busy street.

If only all hotels were like this, the Fountainside sets the standard in how to look after guests. Rooms are spacious and well appointed including to have massive beds and big big-screen TVs but it was the little touches such a quality products in the bathroom and a mini-bar with shop prices that made the real difference. How nice to be in a hotel and NOT feel like they are trying to shaft you on the price of a beer or bar of chocolate! Add to that a handy location & friendly staff it's easy to see why this place has such a high rating.

Room Tip: The top-floor rooms are not much more than the standard rate and worth it for the little extras (inc...
