Fountain Court Apartments - EQ2

Reviewed 2 July 2012 via mobile

Found apartment via trip advisor. Although our cabbie had a little difficulty finding the place ( not his fault, tram construction) check in was painless. Apartment was VERY large, lots of room to spread out and the free wi-fi invaluable. 15 minute walk to royal mile, and if you are lost , native Edinburgh residents actually stopped and asked if they could give us directions! Our last day we had to collect a rental car, and management was very accommodating with letting us park in the garage while getting bags packed & loaded. Only minuses, not sure if a water leak has happened or if the foundation is having issues; but the floor of the kitchen creaks and groans and is spongy in spots. The wall to wall carpeting is very dirty and stained especially downstairs. I would still recommend the apartment, just be aware of these issues.

We found Fountain Courts after a desperate search on last minute.com, as we had planned to stay a night in Aberdeen & found there were absolutely no rooms available there that night. Rang from Aberdeen & were offered this apartment at a very good rate. We were arriving after reception closed, so they gave us the entry codes & an emergency mobile number when I booked, no trouble accessing the lobby or the key safe. I specifically requested somewhere very quiet, as we had been in a very noisy room the night before in Glasgow, & this was perfect. We had a 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment looking out over the canal: there was a bit of noise from the bar across the canal, but it couldn't be heard once the windows were closed. Great bed & very comfortable furniture, well-equipped kitchen. There was a faulty light bulb in the bed-room, & the maintenance guy arrived to replace it very quickly. Our apartment had daily servicing which was great at the price we were paying.

This place could be very good.we stayed 5 nights in the 3 bed penthouse.Reception closes at 5pm so when we arrived early evening we had to phone a number on the reception door to get codes to access our room.No-one showed us our apartment but this was offered.Location was fine as we like to walk and took about 10-15 minutes to walk to the castle.This could be an issue for some though.Canal location still will be developed i presume as several areas of cleared land visible from apartment.
The initial impression of apartment was great but this changed with time.Initially noticed fluctuating temperature of hot water in shower which we could live with but on 3rd day there was no hot water and boiler had to be fixed which was done that day.we were given access to another apartment for us to have a shower.
Next day the shower leaked to my daughters bedroom below.Plumbers again came that day and fixed the problem.
Other problems included non functioning door bell and curtain rail nearly coming off.
We felt management could have contacted us directly about the problems we encountered and offered some goodwill gesture for the inconvenience.We understand problems will arise and we felt the maintainance team were excellent but customer care and concern were suboptimal.
In conclusion,we feel we would still stay here again and we were unlucky with the problems we faced but overall the apartment/customer care did not match the cost or the grading of the apartment

We checked in to these apartments. The guy on reception was so friendly & helpful. I told him about a bad experience I had in other apartments (Tartan Apts) He immediately upgraded us to the penthouse suite as it wasn't busy. I thought this was a really nice gesture. It was very much appreciated & made our stay. The apartment was truely amazing. Large & spacious with views over the Union Canal. 2 bedrooms, large living area, bathroom with shower, shower room & toilet. Private parking (think it was £8). I would definately stay here again. Really central. 5 min walk to Lothian Rd so no need for taxi home. Couldn't fault it. Fully equiped extensive kitchen if you wanted to eat in. What more could you ask for !

Room Tip: Splash out on the Penthouse, although I would imagine all the rooms would be lovely.
