“Very good modern apartments”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

In he last few years I have stayed and these apartments a number of times on business and with my wife. They are a little out of the centre but i suspect if you are willing to pay their prices you will pay for a taxi when the walk or weather is too much.

The apartments are spotlessly clean, of a a nice size and with good facilities (washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, cooker etc.) on this visit we had booked a one bedroom apartment and were upgrade to a two bedroom one, which gave us extra space, and I always like a free upgrade!

The staff are all willing to help with any queries, in a friendly way that actual gives the impression they want to help!

In reality they do everything they say in their literature, and despite the higher festival prices (like everywhere else in the city) deliver what they say they will

We stayed at the Fountain Grove apartments in Edinburgh very recently and during the Edinburgh Festival. Our girls, elementary school aged, loved having the space to run around. They were clean, comfortable, and in a great part of town. A short walk from the castle and the Royal Mile yet just around the corner enough that we weren't barraged by a lot of noise from the evening/pub crowds. One note if you stay there - there are several Fountain Court properties right on Grove Street, so make sure you go to the right one!

We have 2 teen-adult girls and we love to stay in apartment rather than hotels. Fountain court is a wonderful place to stay. It is clean, spacious and with all the facilities a family needs, when on vacation. The staff is also extremely friendly and poised. I would recommend this property for sure!

These apartments are spotlessly clean with tasteful décor and were extremely pleasant to relax in after a busy day at the conference centre. I have very high standards when it comes to cleanliness and I felt completely at ease here. The staff were friendly and helpful, even showing my mother how to login to the wifi on her ipad. The showers were great with nice toiletries provided and the bed linen was clearly of a high quality and very comfortable. I have been recommending Fountain Court to friends.

Room Tip: We were facing the car park which was actually very quiet.

Had requested a 2-bedroom apartment with a double in one room and two singles in the other. Arrived a little early and were told that they would confirm the requested room would be available once it was cleaned. An hour or so later were advised by a staff member that whilst the couch in the reception area that my son (who had a migrane) was laying on was undoubtedly comfortable, it really "didn't look good" that he was doing so. When I mentioned that we were simply waiting for our requested room-type to become available, he immediately assigned us to a room with two double beds, which we discovered once we got to the room. This was subsequently rectified, and all else was ok, however a somewhat less than auspicious start to our stay...

Great location, not too far to walk to all central points of interest.
Great facilities. Spotlessly clean.
Ideal for a longer stay. Would stay here again and would have no problem to recommend.
24 hour reception. Internet room available.
Realistic prices. Fantastic find.
