Had to wait even though we booked as there was a tour group in. Simple buffet breakfast but a good price for what you got, wished they had baked beans. No pastries, only cereal, hot selection, variety of breads, juices and hot drinks available - unsure if the selection changes at all. Some parking on site and staff were friendly...

First bad omen was when I inquired about a quiet room and the front desk clerk offered me earplugs. The hotel is very close to the highway and very noisy. Next, first trip up the elevator I commented that we should use the stairs in the future, scary ride. Then next 2 days the elevator was posted out of service....

Nice clean rooms, adequately appointed, lovely hostess, happy with the food, would recommend. Also, an excellent location, close to main road but double glazing reduces the noise. Really nice beds. We strayed as part of a large group so not sure about value for money but I would be surprised if it is not reasonable. 2 lifts and onsite parking...

We booked this hotel for our last night in Hobart because of it's proximity to the highway to the airport as we had to pick up friends in the morning before heading up to Cradle Mtn. The room and bathroom were well appointed although we only had a kettle and tea/coffee/milk and a mini bar - no toaster or any...

We had two nights in a Superior King Room and loved everything about our room and the hotel. The Superior rooms are on the top (7th) floor and they are a few dollars dearer than those on lower levels. The big picture window looks out over parkland and thanks to double glazing, the room is very quiet. The room is...

Great location, easy walk to the harbour and facilities, free parking. friendly staff. Room was good. Breakfast was extra but good value at $A13. Only stayed one night. Workmen everywhere making a new lift and plastering. Didn't cause us any problems though.

We stayed here for 4 nights as we explored the area around Hobart. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We upgraded to the superior rooms on the top floor which all seem to have nice views of the park across the street. The rooms are quite large & roomy with extremely comfortable beds & pillows. The aircon &...

We stayed here for 5 nights. We had a twin room on Floor 1. The hotel appears to be nearing the end of a refurbishment. Our room was comfortable, clean and modern. The same could be said of the dining room. I suspect both have been upgraded. A new lift was being installed but this was being done with no...

Fountainside Hotel was a great base for a 6 night stay in Hobart. The rooms have recently been refurbished and are quite spacious and bedding comfortable. A large bar fridge is provided as well as the usual tea/coffee/milk and mini bar selection. While further renovations are being carried out, and thus impacting the dining options, (specifically breakfast), my husband and...
