Not far from the Royal Mile and close to train st.

Posted 23-Sep-2016
Pros: Cleaning staff was very nice and the apartments had an elevator, which could be very convenient when you're carrying heavy luggage.
Cons: Having Washer and Dryer in the room (only washer was provided but they took our wet clothes and dried them before returning them to us on the same day
Location: Good Gin and Tonic bar, train station to go anywhere in Scotland, good places for breakfast and not too far from the city center
Very nice apartments, pretty close to the train station and nice pubs (like The Jolly Botanist for those who want to experience the Gin & Tonic world). Also not too far from the Royal Mile. Ahh there's a good breakfast place very close and grocery stores too.

Thank you for your review! We are delighted to hear that you generally liked our apartments and explored the great food options in the local area. Apologies about the confusion with the washer/dryer. In our Grove Apartments we only provide a washing machine and a drying rack. I will correct this mistake on our Expedia page asap. Best wishes from all of us at Fountain Court!

God beliggenhed

Posted 29-Aug-2016
Vi boede 3 voksne i en 2 værelses lejlighed beregnet til 4 Pers. på 4.sal. Der er meget støj og dørene smækker i et med et ordentlig brag. Fotos på booking side stemte ikke overens med min oplevelse. Lejligheden trængte til gennemrenovering. Slidt overalt. Maling skaldede af mv. Der var ikke plads til at 4 kunne sidde og spise på samme tid. Spisebordet var placeret helt op ad sofaen så der var ikke plads til at trække stolene ud fra bordet. Det var ikke muligt at flytte sofaen pga andre møbler. 3 gange ud af 5 blev vi sprunget over af housekeeping. Vandtrykket meget lavt i bruser. Vinduer svære at åbne. Ingen stegepande og skærebræt. Til gengæld rigelige mængder pulver kaffe,te, sukker, salt, kaffefløde. God beliggenhed ca. 1km til slot og princess street. Indkøbsmulighed lige ved døren. Jeg vil ikke benytte fountain court igen - primært pga prisen sammenholdt med standard og serviceniveau på lejlighed.

staff were good, apts not so much

Posted 11-Aug-2016
Pros: location and staff
Cons: apt maintenance
Location: it is close to the royal mile , grassmarket and princess street . there are really great pubs and restaurants within walking distance .
It's a good location close to the city center , plenty bars and food places nearby. the staff were good and helpful and tried their best to make our stay comfortable but for me the apts are needing a fair bit of maintenance. Hope they sort it out , it could be a great place to stay rather than just an ok place to stay.

Thank you for your feedback - we really appreciate it. However, we regret to hear that our apartments did not meet your expectations. We receive regular inspections by VisitScotland, who have awarded our apartments 4 stars. However, I will instruct our Maintenance Manager to have a closer inspection of the apartment you stayed in and suggest some improvements. Best wishes

Fountain Court Comfort

Posted 09-Jun-2016 on Hotels
Very good apartment hotel with well utfitted kitchen but lacking freezer. Within 15 mins walk from Princes' street but Tesco metro, Cooperative and Sainsbury's local within 2 to 5 mins walk.

Stort, billigt - och aningen obekvämt

Posted 08-Jun-2016 on Hotels
Fountain court apartments ligger bra till, knappt tio minuters promenadväg från centrala Edinburgh. Lägenheterna har förhållandevis stora rum, trevligt möblerade med tv, soffor, matbord osv. Trevligt att det dessutom finns både tvätt- och diskmaskin sam fullutrustat kök. Sängarna var tyvärr väldigt hårda, och madrasserna kändes överanvända. Byggnaderna kändes även de gamla och slitna. Rekommenderas för dig som vill bo stort och centralt, men inte kräver något exklusivt.

Well worn, uncomfortable, needs a renovation

Posted 02-Jun-2016
Pros: The staff
Cons: Rooms need renovating
If this were a cheap hotel I'd almost forgive the tired well worn décor, lop sided saggy uncomfortable beds & grubby carpets that are an asthmatics worst nightmare, but we paid good money for what was meant to be 4 star accommodation and were very disappointed. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful however the rooms have seen better days. The photos on the web page make the place look great, the reality however is a completely different story.

Thank you for your feedback - we really appreciate it. We would like to apologise for our apartments not being up to our usual standards. We have a mattress replacement programme in place as well as a carpet cleaning programme. However, I will forward your comments to our Housekeeping and Maintenance Teams to look further into it. Thanks again and best wishes

Good stay at Fountain Court.

Posted 26-May-2016 on Hotels
Great location, with easy accessibility to Haymarket and Lothian Road. Clean, but slightly run down apartment which was well equipped for a family. Onsite parking in a secure car park.
