Fountainside Hotel, Hobart
Perfect for a visit to Hobart!
Stayed there in March 2018 as a couple, in a large room with King size bed. Convenient location, just as you enter the city by car. Free parking! Easy 10 min walk to the harbor. Breakfast on location is good and a fair cost, less than half I've been charged for a hot full breakfast at other similarly-priced hotels. Staff very helpful answering questions about the local area.

Very Good8.0
Good city stopover hotel, convenient free parking
I have known this hotel as a Hobart landmark for decades but this was our first stay there. It was good to see that they have kept everything up to date and it certainly has no feel of being an old hotel — quite the opposite in fact. Check-in and checkout quick and very cordial. Parking extremely convenient, in an arc around the building. Amenities good and king bed very comfortable. Room carpet, while clean, looked a bit old and drab, a bit of a let-down. Appreciated the good-sized 2-suitcase stand, unlike the single stand in too many hotel double rooms. Good shower, and nice to have shelves to put toiletries etc. on. Hairdryer supplied, and usual toiletries. The room had aircon and free WiFi but of some reason it wouldn't connected me so used my phone's own mobile data. Usual iron, tea and coffee making facilities. A couple of inexpensive additions would lift these from average to pleasing: a coffee plunger and some coffee-ground bags, a couple of small packets of cookies, a water jug in the fridge and a couple of tumblers — none provided. Location is good. It is near the busiest roundabout in Hobart, but the room was not noisy — I think the windows must be double-glazed. It is particularly convenient for the Royal Hobart Hospital and Hobart's classic Theatre Royal — a block away in each case — and a couple of blocks away from city centre and waterfront. Also walking distance from Salamanca Place restaurants.

Glad we picked Fountainside
First let me say that Mel at the front desk is one of the best we have encountered. Friendly and very helpful. She needs a promotion. The hotel is wonderful. Good and well priced breakfast buffet. Good sized room and a great bathroom. The WiFi is thebest we have stayed with on our 14 month around the world trip, just great. The place is great.
