First of all we spent a long time on the internet trying to find an apartment which was a reasonable price and had at least one double bed instead of two twins. We went ahead and booked a room here with a double bed and a twin and sadly we got two twins. We got pillows with mascara stains on them and bedding with hairs on. We got a bathroom with several hairs around. We got stained carpets that had definitely not been hoovered. The management response will be that we should have mentioned this straight away and they would have moved us............well we could have complained but it had been a long day already and we didnt get there until 7 and wanted to just get ready and go out to eat.......we don't want to be going to making the complaint and hauling luggage to another block and changing rooms. A successful, customer oriented business will get things right for guests from the start without having to waste their vacation time moving them to a clean suitable room - we can honestly tell you that our room had not been cleaned and it didn't not feel nice knowing that. When we left I was asked if everything was ok, I reluctantly mentioned the issues, however I was only a sentence into the answer to their question when the guy seemed interested in other things in the reception area. Why ask the customer if you don't really care about listening to the answer? I paused and waited for his focus to come back and carried on in the optimistic hope that it may be properly cleaned for the next person. Note to management - Get it right for when customers arrive, not after they waste their dining and city-exploring time by having to complain and be moved. Secondly, you often promise to speak to staff involved and then give assurance that we will have a better experience next time..........well, that doesnt change the experience you gave us! Why would we pay to return to see if its any different? Did staff mention a partial refund? Of course not

16 of us stayed here for my sisters hen weekend and we couldn't have made a better choice! The apartments were lovely in side (just as advertised on website) very clean and in an excellent location. Less than a 5 minute walk to a Tesco Express and a number of cafes close at hand. Half an hour walk into town or plenty of buses passing the end of the street that you could jump on. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Extremely pleasant on arrival and always smiling. At one point, one of the apartments was far too hot and we couldn't workout how to turn down the heating. We called reception and straight away someone came across to take a look and sort it out for us. Service with a smile! Whenever we required a few taxis the staff were more than willing to organise this for us. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to book accommodation for a large number of people. Well done Fountain Court Apartments! Would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat!

Through for overnight stay for a short visit to Edinburgh, and booked into the apartments. Reception and check-in was efficient and friendly. Apartment was amazing, large and spacious with an excellent open plan kitchen and lounge area and a reasonable sized bedroom with plenty wardrobe space. Bathroom was a great size with a great shower. Tv's in the lounge and the bedroom and entertainment system in the lounge for dvd and blue ray. Spotlessly clean. Bed very comfortable indeed, ensuring a good night's sleep or was that the drink. Would be suitable for short or long stay. Ideally situated for Rose street and Princes street with many bars and restaurants nearby. Recommended.

This is our 2nd visit to the Fountain Grove Apartments. We returned, as the apartments are well maintained, very clean and everything in them that you would need. The staff are friendly and do a great job. We booked two apartments for this visit and requested them to be adjacent which they were, result! The apartments have their own heating controls, washer/dryer, dishwasher- tablets for both, fridge, safe, iron with board, hairdryer, toiletries, fluffy towels and tea and coffee with daily room clean, Close to small Tesco. 5/10 mins walk to Princes Street. Whats not to like. Thanks to all the Grove staff, you do a great job,

First time staying in an 'aparthotel' and it didn't disappoint. Our apartment had plenty of room and was very comfortable. Happy to have a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, toaster, ironing board etc included. Bathroom great and bed very comfortable. Good location near to several bus stops and Tesco. We have no complaints and would stay again.

This was a very nice alternative to the hotel I stayed in prior. The apartment has everything you need to wash clothes, do dishes, eat meals, and have groceries. The location is perfect with walking to city centre and also the Haymarket in the other direction. There are lots of restaurants and pubs, shopping, massage, and cinemas nearby. The floors were a bit creaky on the fourth floor and I felt for those below me a bit but never received any complaints. It's set far enough from Lothian Road you don't have noisy traffic or late night sound from the streets, had everything except a way to charge USB devices in the room although they say they have adapters for purchase at reception. I brought my own so I was o.k. Also I arrived quite a bit before check-in but they were more than happy to keep my luggage for me in a secure place. Friendly service at reception for Check-in

Beautiful 2 bed room apartment with all the facilities such as washing machine, toiletries, towels. TV, Coffee, dish washer, safe for valuables. There was even a big black book which contained all the details about the apartment and also shopping areas, places to visit, restaurants in the city. Upon arrival, we noticed hair dryer was missing but all we had to do was make a call to the reception to get it. Do not forget to check the inventory as soon as u check in because if something is missing and u do not inform the person at the reception, the amount would be deducted from your deposit. 2 things to be kept in mind while booking 1) bath tubs are very slippery so pls ask for a rubber mat 2) the floor shakes quite often and you would feel everything around you is spinning (we were on the top floor) but I think that's because Edinburgh is a hilly city.

I really loved my apartment. - It was big (living room, kitchen, two rooms, bathroom, 3 wardrobes), well-furnished (oven, microwave, kettle, fridge, cooking station, washing machine, dishwasher, hair dryer, iron), clean, and modern. All the appliances were quite new. - They changed the bed sheets once, and the towels daily. - The staff was kind and competent. - Free wifi and free parking spaces on the road.

Me and my girlfriend recently had a weekend stay in Edinburgh and stayed with Fountain Court apartments. The major plus side to these apartments is its location. You are only a 10 minute walk to Princes Street and are surrounded with options for food and drink. However I must say that the apartment itself was wildly overpriced, We paid £260 for what can only be described as a box flat. The apartment had 3 rooms all within approx 2 yards of each other. I can acknowledge that it was spotless however i feel like they should be charging half of what they did.

Arrived at the apartments late Fri evening ( 8/9/17) allocated room 101! On arrival all fine, fridge drip tray was full of water and mould ! Called reception as water spilled all over the floor ! It was quickly dealt with , no hot water on the Sunday, maintaince called and prob was fixed !overall had a good stay, cozy apartment and 10 min walk to central Edinburgh! The apartment was very dated and we were on ground level and felt curtains had to be constantly closed as non screens or blinds and the windows in the path of the car park , although we enjoyed our stay I would choose to stay more central as we have done previously for less money and more luxury , maybe just the fact we were on ground level, think the upper flats may have been more private 😊
