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.

The hotel is located very centrally for Hobart - rooms are a big in size and bed was very comfortable! Staff very friendly and helpful. Although construction works were going on - I was unable to hear any noise/encounter any disruption. Great place to stay when visiting!

Really enjoyed our stay at Fountainside Hotel. The hotel was by far the best hotel we had stayed in during our trip to Tasmania. Good location, large clean room, comfortable bed, nice toiletries. The mini bar was the cheapest mini bar we have seen.. Late check in until 12 midnight was a bonus as we did not arrive to Hobart...

From the outside the hotel doesn't look much, but inside, it looks to have had a face lift and our room was clean, spacious and comfortable (standard king). We didn't eat here, but the restaurant looked spacious and the prices for breakfast and dinner very reasonable. The Mini bar was surprising - often overpriced the Fountainside offer items at low...

Ticks all the basic boxes for a pleasant city stay. Great bed, free wifi, nice views from the window, convenient location, lovely staff, and the best price I've ever seen for a hotel breakfast. The room was very nice, although if you are a light sleeper I would suggest asking for a room higher up to avoid slight noise from...

We stayed for four days at Fountainside and had a really good experience. The hotel is conveniently located near to all attractions and popular restaurants. Elishe (Hope I spell correctly) was really nice to give us directions and suggesting places that we should visit. Our room (on the top floor) was clean, spacious and had great views of Hobart piers....
