“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights as a family of 4 on a city break. Really smart 2 bed apartment - 2 bathrooms, 3 tvs (kids loved this), everything we needed. Very clean, modern styling. Friendly staff on 24 hour reception were happy to help with recommending places to eat, directions etc. A little out of town, but bus stop round the corner and only 10-12 min walk to old and new town. well equipped kitchen and local Tesco Express means you can self cater if needed. 2 great local cafes on the doorstep though (highly recommend Loudon's), Zizzi and other local restaurants give you a discount. Highly recommended and great value.

Love it! Everything was CLEAN, well appointed. Location was very convenient. And 24-hour concierge!? What more can you ask for? I'd stay there again if ever I was in Edinburgh.

Stayed here with a group of friends. We had originally booked into the Stewart Apartments, (owned by same group) but were asked if we would like to move to Grove Exec due to an overbooking, to which we all agreed as the company upgraded us and gave us free parking etc - we were delighted!

The apartments are immaculately clean and well designed. We liked the built in sound system! Very nice furnishing and fittings and most of all loads of space. There is normally a charge for parking, but we did feel it was a secure car park.

The area is great with bars, restaurants all near by. We walked into city and it took about 25 - 30 mins, but there is a bus stop just yards from hotel also.
Would come here again. Staff were excellent and very helpful (special mention to Izzy for her assistance).
We will be back..................................

Room Tip: High floors and if you want peace and quiet then rooms to the rear of building are quieter.

Wonderful accomodation. Looks spotless - think it may be fairly new. 2 bathrooms/shower rooms to 2 bedrooms. Good sized beds, warm, spacious and well appointed. Grove Exec room is on the ground floor so views were of car park and not ideal but the actual flat was so lovely we didnt care. Just the two of us and really cant complain about anything. The surrounding area isnt pretty like central Edinburgh but its so easy to get into the centre by train, bus, taxi or walking. On the up side, the eateries within walking distance are plentiful and fabulous. Turn left and it takes you to a mini Tesco for those breakfast requirements or if you cant be bothered go to the first cafe across from Tesco (not the one next door to this one - surrounding was lovely but food and service awful). The cafe on the corner is fab though but you may need to queue to get a table. Back to the accommodation though - easy to access, receptionists were just lovely and very friendly. Cant rate high enough (and we are hotel and apartment tarts!). Hope to try another with views this time. Many thanks!

Room Tip: grove exec was ground floor - ask if you want a higher level

Stayed for International rugby weekend and all apartments were full. Despite this, we did not hear any other guests. Fantastic 2 bed apartment, which we shared with friends. 2 beds, 2 immaculate bathrooms and fully equipped, kitchen, diner, lounge. Whole apartment was exeptionally clean and comfortable, what more do you need? All staff we encountered, both over phone and face to face were very personable and helpful. Will always use again when in the area and have no problem recommending, what a gem.

We have stayed here a few times and have never been disappointed. This time we stayed in a self contained apartment with its own door on Grove Street and at the back of the property was a patio and decking area. Only thing missing was the sunshine. Will definitely be back. Perfectly placed for all amenetiesThank you

Three of us visited in December 2011 and right from the off Fountain Court did not dissappoint. The penthouse suite we stayed in was ludicrously spacious and embarassingly well-equipped - the tv in the bathroom was a personal highlight. The immaculate apartment was decked out with comfortable furnishings and allowed us enough space to sprawl out. The service we recieved was pleasant and relaxed - on one occassion a light switch in the lounge tripped, and within minutes an electrician came to fix it. Overall Fountain Court was absolutely perfect - great value, convenient location, stunning hospitality and a fine base for exploring the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Room Tip: The penthouse suites are slightly more expensive but are definately worth it, especially if you'...
