Fountain Court Apartments - Grove Executive
Ranked #101 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

If you're travelling with a family then this hotel will suit you perfectly. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms on the 3rd floor at the back end of the hotel.
Pros - very clean, condition as advertised in the pictures. Location is about off the beaten path (15mins walk to main touristy areas) quite quiet. There's a tesco around the corner for your groceries. A fully functioning kitchen with all the utensils. Washer/dryer was a great thing to have
Cons - not in the touristy shopping area (if that's what you want). Toilets are clean, but if you want to be really fussy there are areas that has soap stains (lower part shower glass rails, overflow)

Booked the penthouse apartment on a road trip with my parents who were over visiting from Australia. Found them to be modern, clean and staff were helpful. Good location, we were able to walk to the castle and princess street. Australian receptionist gave us a map and pointed out all the spots to see as well as nearby pubs and restaurants for dinner which was very helpful! Highly recommend this place especially if you require more than one hotel room or some extra space.

Very well appointed apartments - dishwasher, washing machine (which is also a tumble drier) - the bedrooms are good as well (not far off Malmaison in terms of decor).

Staff are friendly and knowledgeable - be aware that the traffic wardens are on mopeds, so they can swoop very quickly! We were given 5 mins to unload and drive off by one!

When booking, ask for an apartment at the rear, as Grove Street is used as a cut through by late night revelers...

First and foremost, this place was great. Good location, within walking distance of the castle, and plenty of pubs and restaurants. When we checked in, there had been a mixup with our reservation. We had used our miles/points/rewards to book the room. I guess they had overbooked or whatever, but instead of turning us away, they upgraded us at no charge. We stayed in a suite overlooking the canal, and it was awesome! I would most definitely stay here again!

In he last few years I have stayed and these apartments a number of times on business and with my wife. They are a little out of the centre but i suspect if you are willing to pay their prices you will pay for a taxi when the walk or weather is too much.

The apartments are spotlessly clean, of a a nice size and with good facilities (washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, cooker etc.) on this visit we had booked a one bedroom apartment and were upgrade to a two bedroom one, which gave us extra space, and I always like a free upgrade!

The staff are all willing to help with any queries, in a friendly way that actual gives the impression they want to help!

In reality they do everything they say in their literature, and despite the higher festival prices (like everywhere else in the city) deliver what they say they will

We stayed at the Fountain Grove apartments in Edinburgh very recently and during the Edinburgh Festival. Our girls, elementary school aged, loved having the space to run around. They were clean, comfortable, and in a great part of town. A short walk from the castle and the Royal Mile yet just around the corner enough that we weren't barraged by a lot of noise from the evening/pub crowds. One note if you stay there - there are several Fountain Court properties right on Grove Street, so make sure you go to the right one!

We have 2 teen-adult girls and we love to stay in apartment rather than hotels. Fountain court is a wonderful place to stay. It is clean, spacious and with all the facilities a family needs, when on vacation. The staff is also extremely friendly and poised. I would recommend this property for sure!
