We moved in to Fountain Court EQ2 Apartments for two months whilst our house was being repaired due to a flood, Nov to Dec 14. I can not recommend the team at EQ2 highly enough.

We were booked into EQ2 for the new year. We had a "penthouse" on 2 floors with views of the canal and the castle (great for the fireworks) although parts of the area are still under development.. The apartment was quite spacious, plenty room for us plus the visitors we had over new year. Kitchen was reasonably equipped but needed... More

I love coming here. The apartments are spacious and and the kitchen is fully equipped. Parking is available on request and more importantly for me, the staff are just fabulous.

Located just next to the canal, I was on the 3rd floor in a three bedroom appartment that had lovely water views from 2 out of the 3 bedrooms in the appartment.
