Friendly staff. Very close to salamanca market and battery point. Also close to airport. The minibar is at good value. The car park is a bit too small and seem it couldn't accommodate all customers during peak seasons. The bath room design is a bit strange where the shower water will splash out. Overall is great.

I can't understand the positive reviews of this hotel. This is the first time that Tripadvisor has let me down. I barely slept a wink all night because the traffic noise was so loud. I was on the first floor so whether this makes a difference I don't know but I booked months in advance for a weeknight and put...

This hotel was basic but totally adequate. No bells and whistles but everything we needed for our short stay. It was also perfectly clean, well located and had the friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever come across in a hotel. The in room mini bar was great value. No over the top prices, which meant we were happy...

we were two couples who chose a hotel which was reasonable central within Hobart and yet offered apparent value for money. We were not disappointed. The rooms were large and well appointed and our only complaint was that the free internet access was not able to be properly accessed by all our Apple devices. Otherwise everything was very good and...

We stayed here for a week from the 15th to the 21st of February and it is the second time we have stay there. Once again, we were not disappointed and this hotel would have to be one of the best value for money hotels you could choose. I travel a lot on business interstate and stay at a lot...

Stayed very recently at this hotel and mostly it mirrored the majority of reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed at the accommodation - king bed was very comfy - appointments first class. (The heated loo seat with 'extras' was different). The toiletries were top shelf if a little sparse - always nice to find something a little out...

We stayed for one night at Fountainside hotel. The hotel room was clean and had everything we needed. The location was close to everything and easy to find. The breakfast was also good and very reasonably priced. All staff we spoke to were super polite and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely quiet, we couldn't...

Looks can sometimes be deceiving !! And certainly the outside appearance of this hotel can discourage you, however nothing about this hotel is discouraging. Fantastic value for money, free wifi, free parking, massive TV! Great location! Breakfast at 11.50 was great with a great selection of hot and continental foods.

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of a trip around Tasmania as it was a fairly cheap and well rated place. We walked in to the room and were blown away, it could have been out of a hotel twice the price! Then we saw the minibar prices...$3.5 for a Boags Premium? Yes Please! Finally, a hotel...

The Fountainside was a great choice based upon TA reviews. My husband and I stayed three nights in a studio apartment. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The room was large and well-laid out. We had planned to eat breakfast in our room, but we ended up eating at the hotel dining room because the food was excellent and...
