Fountain Court Apartments - Grove Executive4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Booked 2 nights at Fountain Court as an alternative to a hotel and was so glad I did. We arrived at 11am and were able to leave our cases and spend the rest of the day sightseeing. Upon return we were given our keys and went to the apartment on the 1st floor which was spotless. The carpet was new, bathroom very clean and looked like recently refurbished and microwave, washer dryer, dishwasher all looked new. The bed was very comfortable and the layout of the apartment was fabulous not to miss the linen and towels which were nice and fresh. All the essentials were provided e.g. hairdryer, shampoo, soap, 2 massive flatscreen TV's and free wifi. Our only issue during our stay was the people staying in the apartment above deciding to put their washing machine on at 1am, this is no fault of the staff or the apartment but I guess something that is more likely in apartments when comparing against a hotel. The apartments are perfectly located, 10 minutes to all the attractions with bars and cafe's en route and a handy Tesco express round the corner. Would definitely stay here again if revisiting Edinburgh
Myself, wife and two adult children stayed here for a weekend during Edinburgh Fringe. Excellent apartment, spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Quite conveniently located for the city and Fringe venues. Supermarket nearby for self catering purposes. Really nice place to come back to and relax after a hectic day at Fringe.
Our recent visit to the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic necessitated an over-night stay in Edinburgh – two nights in fact, as we planned to take in some sights too. But where to stay? Somewhere serviced; somewhere conveniently placed for all our planned activities; somewhere with a separate bedroom for our teenage son; somewhere with 2 bathrooms, lift access, free high speed Wi-Fi and secure parking; somewhere spotlessly clean to OCD standards, somewhere close to eateries serving ‘normal’ food that wasn’t presented wrapped in waxed paper or a cardboard box, OR ideally, self-catering facilities; somewhere with a 24hour reception team (just in case) ….oh, and somewhere affordable! Hmmmmmm……..it’s a good job I like a challenge! I looked at good hotels of course, and quality B&B’s and guest houses, but it was impossible to find somewhere that ticked all the boxes. But then I found it……………….. FOUNTAIN COURT GROVE EXECUTIVE SERVICED APARTMENTS at 121 Grove Street, EH2! Serviced? Check! Conveniently placed? Check! 2 bedrooms? Check! 2 bathrooms? Check! Lift access? Check! Free high-speed Wi-Fi? Check! Secure parking? Check! (for a small additional fee) Spotlessly clean to OCD standards? Check! (and it actually was!) Close to eateries selling ‘normal’ food? Check! (and with a Tesco just around the corner) Fully fitted kitchen? Check! Washer/dryer, dishwasher etc All mod cons? Check! - flat-screen satellite TVs, even in the bathroom (!), and a full home entertainment system. Affordable?.......... Check! I also discovered that these apartments were awarded the Trip Advisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ this year and that they won the title ‘Scotland’s Leading Serviced Apartments’ in the World Travel Awards last year. Considering that Edinburgh attracts almost four million visitors each year, that’s quite an achievement! Having now visited, there is no doubt in my mind that the Fountain Court Apartments are a true home-from-home experience. They are modern, stylish, and peaceful – a true retreat after a busy day of working, shopping or exploring the city’s many attractions. With a choice of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, guests can enjoy the space, freedom and flexibility of their own Edinburgh apartment combined with the style of a hotel. These apartments are close to Haymarket, the Financial District and Edinburgh’s West End. In fact, perfect for both business and leisure travel! You may choose to take in the famous city sights like Edinburgh Castle and The Scott Monument, Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill, as well as renowned galleries and museums; perhaps a ghost tour around the Edinburgh Vaults, a bus tour around the city, a visit to Edinburgh Zoo, the National Museum of Scotland, Camera Obscura or Dynamic Earth; or just a wander through the winding streets of the Old Town, a drink in the eclectic cocktail bars of the New Town, some shopping or nightlife – the list is endless! You should also note that discounts are available to Fountain Court guests at specially selected Edinburgh restaurants and attractions! Book it - you'll be so glad you did!
We booked through "Superbreak". Very easy to do. We required two rooms and didn't want to risk the rooms not being next to one another. The Fountain Court Appartments were a great choice. Clean, warm with every thing we required in an apartment. The Staff were friendly and helpful. Security was excellent. Well located approximately a 5 minute walk from Princes Street. Bus stop and Tesco Local at the end of the street. .
Impressed with the 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in. Checking-in was simple and efficient and off street parking is an absolute bonus in that part of Edinburgh (but costs £10 extra). The apartment was clean and quiet with very comfortable beds. Two bathrooms is a bonus too. Certainly will consider staying again as it's more relaxed than a hotel.
Very comfortable apartment. No hesitation booking as I have used Fountain Court before. Rooms nice and clean. Well equipped kitchen including a washing machine. Breakfast packs provide plenty of food...more than we could eat. Walking distance of main shopping areas and Castle or short taxi ride. Made use of the complimentary late check out and staff also held our luggage until later in the day. Great value for money and will use again.
Having stayed here previously in a penthouse apartment I had high expectations for our stay in a two bedroom apartment and it didn't disappoint. There wasn't much difference between the penthouse and the normal apartment apart from size and a bath instead of shower. Excellent fully fitted kitchen and these apartments accept dogs with is essential for us. My westie loved the sausage treats she found in the dog bed provided by fountain court. Drunken guests who woke us at 5:40 am on our second night did spoil it for us though. Overall a lovely clean fully equipped apartment just outside of the main thoroughfare.
Well located for attendance of a conference at the nearby conference centre. Spacious, clean and modern apartment with well-equipped kitchen including a washing machine. Helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended!
The facilities were neat, clean, and tidy at checking in... the house keeping during the staying was not good... The water system is very poor, you can't take a shower if any water tap opened anywhere in the building...
Me and my partner stayed here for the weekend after a last minute trip to Edinburgh. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the apartment we stayed in was clean, spacious and had everything you would need for a night to a weeks stay in the city. The location was great for us as it is only a short distant from the royal mile, waverly and rose street which is where we had based our travels on. I would 100% recommend fountain court and will defiantly be back again in the near future. Thank you.
