I exited the hotel via the stairwell and was abruptly confronted by a member of staff, who said that this set off an ALARM. I apologised and asked if the exit was signed to request that the stairs be only used in an evacuation. the answer was yes. I again apologised. I checked later and no signage existed. The abrupt...

This hotel is located within walking distance of the CBD, well appointed and great value for money! We spent 4 nights at this hotel and we were thoroughly impressed. The staff were very friendly, the room was kept very clean and the minibar was very reasonably priced. We will be staying here again.

The location of the hotel was fantastic - we were able to walk into central Hobart, the wharf, and Salamanca markets. We were also within driving distance to other places, such as...

The Fountainside is Hobart's best kept secret. We chose it after looking at previous reviews and photographs and we could not have been happier. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bed was lovely as were the shower and bathroom facilities. No need to bring anything - it is all provided, down to the hair dryer. The mini bar is...

Even though the decor in the lobby is a bit dated, the room we stayed in was very comfortable and WARM!! The bathroom was tastefully renovated in grey and white. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast. The view of Mt Wellington, capped with snow, was a pleasant surprise. Free onsite parking is a bonus too,...

I am always sceptical about the reality of photos on a website but was really pleasantly surprised at how true to life they photos were. Don't let the outside of the hotel put you off, the rooms are clean and modern and well equipped. The mini-bar is so affordable that there is no need for buying supplies. The only short...

I agree with others, smallish hotel, easliy accessible,wifi in the room, free parking. Meals not too bad and good breakfast facilities. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Just a great stay. Some of the bigger hotels could learn a thing from here. Congratulations... Great hotel

Take a brutalist East European style Quality Inn, tart it up, get everything working, keep it all simple but functional, populate with friendly cheerful staff and this is what you get. Great value for money and a very enjoyable stay. Noting at all to gripe about, will definitely stay there again!
