“great location and almost everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

really enjoyed our stay.
the food was really good and surprisingly the mini bar didn't cost an arm and a leg we actually ate a lot out of there.
only downside was the lack of parking and the water pressure.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

Enjoyed a weekend in Hobart where I would usually stay at Hadley's or similar boutique hotel. I decided to check on recommendations made by other Tripadvisor members and decided on the Fountainside. We were certainly not disappointed. The rooms were large, clean, airy and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food at the restaraunt was of high quality and plentiful and Judy our waitress, was a wonderful hostess. My wife even commented that it was like staying with friends!

Stayed here for a conference nearby and had a wonderful experience. the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, the room was well appointed, comfortable, and clean, and they have a guest laundry room, which was something i needed to find on my month-long trip

best value for money,,in town! And any hotel that has mini-bar prices that you are actually happy to pay, scores a major plus!

This hotel is centrally located along one of the main roads into Hobart and 10 minutes walk from the Harbourfront and Salamanca Market. The hotel offers free parking for hotel guests. We stayed in a recently upgraded room on the 7th floor (whole floor has been upgraded with a.o. massive flat screen TV and a Japanese electric toilet). Hotel staff was very attentive and the room very clean.

Room Tip: 7th floor as this has been upgraded.
