“Wonderful apartments...will definately return”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

Spacious, modern, clean & comfortable...wonderful stay, excellent price...wonderful location & being able to use parking on-site a real plus point. I would 100% recommend these apartments - the rooms are a good size & the balcony a real treat. Definitely deserves the excellent feedback they have received!

Ian says:
We spent two nights at EQ2 in early April while moving house. The accommodation was spacious, modern, well-equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The location is perfect for anywhere in west or central Edinburgh. The availability of on-site parking is a huge bonus too.We'll certainly be recommending Fountain Court.
Overall, it deserves the excellent rating which others have given it.

Room Tip: Room 35 was very good..

lovely apartment the 2 bedroom one was spacious and comfortable the main bedroom had an en suite and there was a seperate bathroom too,nice big lounge dining area and lovely finish inside,the tv in the bedroom was a tad small would be my only grouch as the rest of the apartment was well finished,the location is not bad slight walk into town but nothing too far the location at the canal is good as there is a tesco near by and plenty of food outlets within walking distance,also underground car parking is good.

Room Tip: front facing over the canal has a nice outlook with small balcony

Stayed in room 35, overlooking canal.

Apartment had everything we needed and was roomy and a great location to visit all the sites. Easy to book and staff very pleasant. Plenty to do in a short distance with bars, restaurants etc.

Princess Street is approx 15 mins away when walking and royal Mile approx 10 mins.

Highly recommended :)

I stayed here for the night of my 30th Birthday and it was just brilliant. Gated, under-garage parking with inside access to the apartments. Very quiet, very clean. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment - 2 x double rooms (1 x ensuite) and a twin room with separate bathroom, kitchen/dining room and living room. It was ideal.
The apartments all look on to a beautiful setting of the barges on the canal. It was beautiful and peaceful to look out on to in the morning when then sun was rising and Edinburgh Castle in the distance.
I have booked to go back and would absolutely recommend to anyone to stay!

Room Tip: Any! They are all great

This property is outstanding. Quiet location, lovely place on the canal, comfortable bed and living room furniture, well-appointed kitchen with clean dishes in excellent condition. Restaurants are close to hand and the centre of Edinburgh is a 15-minute walk. We got a pre-paid non-refundable deal and it was excellent value. A free upgrade from 1 BR to 2 BR was a nice touch as well. This is one time I find literally nothing wrong.
