So sad that this is the last time we could stay at The Fountainside. Wishing all the staff the very best for their futures. Thanks so much for the many times we've stayed. Will really miss such a wonderful location, wonderfully affordable rates and most of all the exceptional customer service from all the staff.

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed at. They have an amazing and cheap mini bar which you can purchase and their breakfast is very good value. Reception is open 24 hours and the staff are excellent.
