“Perfect hotel for travellers”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Located just a short walk to Salamanca Markets & Constitution Dock. Spacious room with comfortable bed, good sized bathroom and room to move. Mini bar prices were at supermarket rates - what a revelation! Reception staff were really friendly and knowledgeable.

We stayed three nights in a Superior King room on the 7th floor. Room was large with comfortable bedding, and very modern amenities, and a large TV. Mini bar pricing was reasonable as was the price for meals and breakfast. I usually avoid Mini bar but at the reasonable rates charged, we did make a few purchases. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great location - walking distance to Central city, Salamanca Place and Botanic Gardens. Free WiFi and free parking added to the great value. I wish there were more great value hotels like this one.

We recently stayed here for four nights. The room had all the right amenities. We especially appreciated the comfortable bed, the good lighting, ample storage space (including in the bathroom) and many mirrors. The staff was helpful. Breakfast in the restaurant was very reasonably priced. The mini-bar items were priced well. Free parking, good location. Would be nice to see the lobby updated to reflect the ambiance of our room.

Booked this hotel after reviewing on Wotif, the outside looks very 70's but the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. We initially booked 4 nights and ended up staying 9. The staff were superb with exceptional friendly service. We ate breakfast every morning in the restaurant - great value and catered for gluten and lactose intolerances which was a rare and appreciated find. Lounge area accessible any time with free tea/coffee, well stocked bar with prices that beat the nearest bottle shop !! Exceptional value for money and we would definitely stay again.

spent a four night break here at the beginning of April. What a lovely hotel - very friendly and helpful staff, especially with a neurotic woman who worried that she'd miss her flight! The bedrooms were spacious and (in out king-size room) the bed was enormous. Breakfasts were great value and plentiful - far cheaper than going to look for a place in town. If I was ever lucky enough to visit Tasmania again I would definitely stay at the Fountainside - the only drawback, which still did not stop me giving it an excellent rating was the traffic noise but we soon got used to that. Short walk to waterfront and shopping centre. Mini bar was amazingly good value.

Booked hotel on the basis of Tripadvisor recommendation and was somewhat dubious on first glance at exterior. Did not disappoint in terms of location, rooms and minibar (especially the value for money mini bar prices). Only point was parking was a bit tight at times but no biggie

The most comfortable bed, very modern appointment, spacious room, ample parking very convenient to cbd. Definitely booked to stay again. Breakfast excellent. Restaurant and sitting area was great with complimentary tea and coffee. Staff very helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in a king room and that was excellent, with very little noise
