                    Location was excellent.Being refurbished to excellent standard.Food was great and food and wine were very reasonably priced

                    Room was a little noisy due to the road

                    8.8

                    The beds are very comfortable, the bedroom and bathroom spotlessly clean, there is free parking and is very close to the centre- good value for money

                    Four star facility at three star price.

                    Aspect ratio on nearly all tv stations was wrong.

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    It was unfortunate that I needed this booking in that it was required because my daughter was hospitalised nearby. I found the staff to be willing to bend over backwards to ensure that I had minimal worries in relation to my accomodation.

                    The Staff were Extremly friendly and very helpful with information, they also respected privacy

                    No dvd player in the room

                    8.2

                    Don't be fooled by the rather plain exterior - the room was very nicely furnished, extremely comfortable (fantastic bed), and the staff were really helpful and friendly. And to top it off, the restaurant served better meals than three other (recommended by friends) restaurants I tried. Free parking was another bonus.

                    One lift only that is creaky and slow; some traffic noise intrudes (though it wasn't objectionable, and I quickly got used to it).

                    Friendly staff and access to the city.

                    Was not impressed with the breakfast - the food was little overcooked. Good variety all the same.

                    7.4

                    Unlike other hotels, the food and beverage offered by Fountainside Hotel are with the price similar or even lower than that in the convenience store.

                  • Single
                    9.2

                    The room was absolutely impeccable, nice, clean, tidy, toiletry products were amazingly good. The restaurant was very good quality and the prices very reasonable for a hotel. The products in the minibar were in some cases cheaper than in the supermarket. I wish more hotels would take note of that particular point!!! It is about service and not exploiting the customer! Internet was very fast and reasonably priced. All in all, I would definitely go back to this hotel either for business or holidays!

                  • Older travelers
                    7.8

                    The staff were very helpful. The room was very comfortable with good facilities. The meals were very good and good value for money and the drinks were fairly priced. It is very well located within easy access to all the city sights.

                    Though well located and in all other aspects an ideal hotel it is on a busy roundabout and there was traffic noise. Our room was near the lift and this added to the noise levels.

                    The staff were excellent and very helpful- particularly the waitress in the dining room.Value for money in the dining room.Very comfortable rooms.

                    Steps, Step at the front entrance and at your room door, which makes it a bit difficult to lug up heavy suitcases.Other than that..nothing!

                    Fantastic rooms, great bed, great tv, excellent amount of space and great value for $$$$!

                    The only slight dissapointment was the lack of power of the shower!!
