First the not so good part ...when we arrived , Reception was closed ... Then we rang the number twice that we had and it just rang out , so we were parked opposite traffic wardens everywhere , and lost ... Thankfully after a period we saw others go up to reception , and this time a lady appeared from another door ... it transpires the reception was getting a make over , and they were temporarily working from room 11 ... all fair enough , but not slick ... a sign or message would have put our minds at rest ? Once in , the apartment was ideal ..clean , warm and on a nice spot by the canal , with restaurants and bars on your doorstep , or just a few minutes from Lothian Road .. Don't be put off by the initial experience we had , I'm just pointing out the facts so that the management can plan against our concerns in the future ... For Edinburgh , good value , and I'd go back...the underground car parking was fine , albeit at £10.00 per day , but again in that area , far better than chancing it with the traffic wardens ..

I stayed here with my mother, my sister and my adult daughter. This was our second time here. We had a 2 bedroomed penthouse apartment this time. The place is spotless. The views are beautiful. Lots of restaurants near by and things to do. We got a really good deal direct with them and you benefit from later checkout and it was worth every penny. We will be back again.

Absolutely first class stay in the Penthouse suite. Very spacious with a fantastic view of the canal and Edinburgh skyline. Well equipped kitchen and living area is fantastic. The three bedrooms were extremely comfortable and I particularly liked the clean, high-end two and a half bathrooms which saved any queueing in the mornings. It was also handy to be able to park in underground carpark. Very conveniently located for all Edinburgh attractions and worth every penny! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for over a month as work was getting carried out on our house. We stayed in a one bed apartment. The apartment was a great size. Was spotlessly cleaned every day. We had a view over the canal too. The apartments also have underground secure parking which you can reserve and only residents can use. The location is fantastic... easy walking distance into town. And lots of lovely little bars and restaurants all around the apartments. Would recommend for both long and short stays.

Lovely apartment, modern, clean and everything you need for a nice night away. Would definitely stay again. Lots of restaurants/bars near by too - great location. Definitely recommend to anyone coming to stay in Edinburgh.

Had a nice New Years weekend at this accommodation. It was clean and spacious. Everything was spot on, and service was with a smile. Good access to the city too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. :-)

We stayed at Fountain Court Apartments, with 2 other couples, using it as a base for the Christmas Wine and Dine in Edinburgh Castle and the lights show at the Botanical Gardens. The quality and clealiness of the apartment was first class and the location was excellent near Tollcross. We had an evening meal in Zizzi's one night and our apartment key got us 25% off the entire food bill (the £26 went towards the wine bill). This was our second stay at Fountain Court and any complaints we have are very minor. The parking was good at £10 per 24hours and it is in the basement of the building - so very accessible for unloading luggage, etc.

We stayed in a 3 bed apartment. It was fully equipped and very clean. Ensuite in master bedroom with walk in wardrobe. Main bathroom also. Great location, walking distance to city centre. Housekeeping daily. Very impressed and would highly recommend.

Stayed in 2 bed apartment with my partner and my parents. Apartment fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Location great 10 mins walk to Prince Street. Would recommend to anyone, staff on reception very helpful. Very secure car park in basement.

There were 6 of us that stayed here and the apartment was incredibly spacious! A large kitchen/dining area and living room, excellent bathroom facilities and very comfy bedrooms. The kitchen came fully stocked with tea, coffee and sugar along with all the utensils you’ll ever need. Huge plush bath sheets and towels. Although these are self catering, the beds were tidied and bathrooms cleaned daily and room service was just at the end of the phone. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, within a short 15 minute walk you’re in the middle of Edinburgh with plenty of bars and attractions along the way. No doubts over returning in the future!
