As other reviewers have noted, this is a clean, centrally located hotel. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and helpful. We thought the breakfasts were good. Cereal, toast, poached eggs and bacon. They were very good at catering for gluten free customers, with cereal, bread and banana bread all gluten free. We did not eat dinner in the restaurant because...

The room was clean, neat and comfortable to stay in. It is very close to the city central. The breakfast and dinner offered in the hotel were really good and not expensive at all, absolutely worth a try! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Staffs are freindly and helpful. Room is clean. Good toilettery selection. Hotel location is not far from city center. The only shortcoming is the elevator that needs to be taken care of. We enjoyed our stay and would recomment to our friends.

Clean, comfortable room in a good location for a reasonable price. We were able to walk to many attractions and restaurants in the Hobart / Salamanca area. Staff were pleasant. We would stay here next time we stay in Hobart.

Stayed for two nights, loved the very comfy bed, it certainly made for a good nights sleep and the free WI-FI and parking was a bonus. It was our first time in Hobart and the staff were very helpful in providing directions and suggestions.

Great Location, Great Staff and OMG the price of the Minibar and brekky was outstanding such great value for money! Lift is being refurbed but didn't have a big impact. No balconies for smokers in the rooms but at the end of each floor there is a little area to have one if you don't want to go down stairs.

We like to walk the towns for attractions and restaurants. This hotel is conveniently located and only about 15 minutes to the airport. We have stayed before and got what we expected. Clean, comfortable room in a good location for a reasonable price. We would stay here again.

We were welcomed to a very comfortable room. As we had travelled far we dined in the hotel restaurant on the first night which was very informal but very good. The best value for money during our whole tour in Australia. Breakfast adequate. Fountainside is a ten minute walk from the harbour which is the centre for many activities and...

We walked to Salamanca markets which are a must do... and to constitution dock and to dinner in the city on our first night. Second...

I have stayed at the Fountainside before with my husband, this time I was attending a conference solo. I stayed in the same type of room as before complete with heated loo seat etc. The hotel is now looking a little tired, but they are renovating the lift which will be good. They still have the tethered iron which somewhat...
