We spent 4 nights at this apartment which was beautiful. My husband, baby and I enjoyed having a two storey apartment with two bathrooms to ourselves. The kitchen was kitted out with a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. All in great working order. There was enough cultlery and saucepans to use. We would definitely come here again and have recommended... More

We stayed two nights with Fountain Court Apartments EQ2 so we could watch Scotland Vs Wales rugby match with our son who studies in Edinburgh. The kick off was 3pm and check in was 3pm - what a dilemma but the staff were extremely helpful and flexible, allowing us access to our apartment at 2.30pm so we could settle in... More

The apartment was quite spacious, plenty room for us plus the visitors we had over new year. Kitchen was reasonably equipped but needed... More
