Last week we rented two three bedroom apartments for a family reunion trip to Edinburgh. The units were light, airy and beautiful, and one had a view of the Castle . Apartment staff was helpful and efficient, I highly recommend these large comfortable apartments to any family looking for an apartment in Edinburgh.Our units were on the higher floors. We... More

We stayed here in Februaray 2014. Very Spacious 2 bed apartment with 1 large bathroom and 1 en suite. It really was a home from home with everything you would need.The apartments can be quite tired in places and I noted that the door looked as though it had been forced open previously. EQ2 are lovely location overlooking the canal... More

We were a family of 6 and rented the 3 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. The flat was awesome with a great view of the edinburgh castle. Very clean and tidy and had all the facilities that you would need for a service apartment. Tesco express nearby was a great feature with a lot of eating joints nearby. Don't miss... More

We stayed for 3 nights during the school holidays in a 2 bed apartment. The apartments are clean and basic. The positives - space in the lounge good for families, close to supermarkets and buses across the city, showers ok. Negatives - beds quite uncomfortable, quite stuffy (we were on the ground floor and the windows were locked), slow wifi,... More

Recently visited for a long weekend. Our apartment faced a building site which was busy from 7am Saturday & Monday. The hot water was no existent and when we complained, we were told to run the water slower! It meant that to run a bath it took over an hour to run... Then there were the students. We had some...

This is not 5 star quality. The interior is dated. Beds uncomfortable. Very noisy, we have been kept awake every night by students, hen do's etc. the house keeping is poor. The location is good but that's all. Very disappointing stay will not be returning.

Outdated. Not what I would call luxury. Poor quality, old furnishings. Poor technology (eg, broadband quality, tv options). Noisy, particularly at weekends. Reasonably central but so many other better locations in the City. Below average servicing (eg, cleanliness, linen changes, tidiness). Overall more like a 3* than it's 5* billing suggests.

We've now used Fountain Court Apartments a number of times, both here at EQ2 and also over at Grove Executive. For years, we used to use The George Hotel in the centre of town, but to be honest, I don't think we'll ever book another Edinburgh hotel again because as a family, FCA meet all our needs and much more....
