Reviewed 20 February 2012

We enjoyed our stay at Fountain Court apartments in Edinburgh. Very friendly staff and lovely clean bedrooms, living room and kitchenette. My only complaint was that the beds were not very comfortable.
Will definitely stay there again.

We have stayed in EQ2 quite a few times now and have been in 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and 2 penthouses. Each time the apartments have been excellent. Always good to have one with a canal view. Its worth asking when you book. To have secure car parking is excellent. £8 a night but thats good for the city.
Well equipped throughout and clean. This time we were upgraded to a bigger apartment than we had booked. Nice surprise.
We have also stayed in Grove Executive. Very good too.
We will return again!

The location is great and the price for new year in Edinburgh for two couples was excellent. The apartment was a two bedroom, two bathroom, had everything in it that you would need, I did not find the beds very comfortable but we are not talking luxury hotel. The Apartment was quite and you can not here any noise from the other apartments especially since this was the busiest time in Edinburgh, I was expecting some sort of noise.
The reception staff are very helpful, at answering all of your queries and were very knowledgeable on Edinburgh. the whole booking process was very professionally handled,

We booked this self-catering hotel for a quick trip to Edinburgh with family visiting from the states, and were pleasantly surprised. Clean, modern and spacious. We had four adults and a young child and were very comfortable for our 3 night stay. The location is a good 20 minute walk from city center, but worth it for the space, rate and the self-catering aspect.

We regularly visit Edinburgh over the festive season, staying usually at Waterfront Apartments in Leith. This time, we tried Fountain Court. Being only 10 minutes walk we felt it would be better than driving into Edinburgh City Centre and having trouble parking. Our 5 year old managed this walk with no problem. The Apartments are nice with enough facilities/equipment. Our main gripe is that, despite arriving early and being allocated a room early by the very friendly and helpful reception staff, the room looked out onto a building site rather than the canal. Also, arriving on the Sunday, parking was free on the road. However, be aware that the traffic Nazis are ruthless and commence their duties at 8.30...even around a back street I got a ticket for not paying and displaying, despite being at the car by 8.50. Merry Christmas. When we drove through the City, we noticed the wardens were out in force over that end of the City and they looked very busy - a veritable money-spinner for the Council that makes the £8 car park fee seem reasonable. The apartment was canny but will be heading back to Leith next year.

I frequently visit our Edinburgh office, and after a couple of years trying the usual nearby hotels (Hilton, Sheraton, etc.) have settled on the excellent Edinburgh Quay apartments. Very peaceful, great amenities and a view of the Union Canal.

Room Tip: canal view
