Fully Decked up great place to be in. Everything is a small walk away. Wonderful ambiance and you feel relaxed and comfortable with your family and you are free to cook and eat at your time and taste.Perfect place to stay for a family holiday.

These are gorgeous apartments, well-furnished, beautifully decorated and spacious. They are located about a 20 minute walk from Prince's St and near a great selection of lovely restaurants and cafés. The staff were very friendly and helpful and free wifi is also available. I would definitely recommend it!

Have stayed at various types of accommodations across the UK and I must admit that I didn't expect the Grove Executive to be as spacious and appointed as it was. Value wise i put it on par with any villa type rental in the USA. Bigger balcony and it would rank among the best. Ideal location near Hay Market, ICC and Lothian Rd. Very efficient and friendly crew always ready to help. Really great place.

Room Tip: Upper floors have a small balcony and it seem the lower floor has a shared patio

My husband, son and I stayed at the Fountain Court Executive Apartments in the middle of a 10 day trip. We greatly appreciated having such a comfortable space in which to relax, spread out and, yes, do laundry. The apartment was remarkably well equipped, plus there was a grocery store right around the corner. The front office staff was lovely and knowledgeable, plus it was nice to know that there was someone there 24 hours a day. It was a bit of a walk (10 min.) to get to town, which was fine until it started pouring. But hey, if you can't take real weather, you shouldn't go to Scotland. Besides, for £1.50, a bus around the corner will take you to all the major sights, including the Royal Britannica. Highly recommend!

I found the hotel via Trip Advisor and was a little skeptical when pick up and walked down the street to the Harris Complex. To my surprise, the apartment was clean, well stocked, and roomy. It was a little dated, but not "tired"

I had a unit that overlooked Grove street. It was a little noisy at night. The hotel is located just outside of city centre ...just a short walk to any place you want to go. There were several nice restaurants a block away on Morrison street.

I will definitely stay here when I come back.

We stayed here for three nights, it was warm and comfortable, the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Within walking distance of Haymarket, Princes Street and on the other side the castle etc. There is a lift in the apartments which was very helpful after my husband injured his leg!! The dog was also treated royally and had her own basket, towel and dog biscuits provided. Secure off street parking was an added bonus as parking in Edinburgh is expensive and a nightmare to find. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights recently and was very, very pleased with the apartment and location. The apartment is about 10 minutes walk to Grassmarket, and is avery easy walk straight all the way. The apartment itself was modern and immaculately clean, with house keeping each day who always went the extra mile and even emptied our dishwasher, or one day filled it with the few bits we had and popped it on for us. Location was quiet and staff were friendly, you knew they were there if needed, but left you alone if they were not. The only gripe would be the price of the car parking, which was a bit steep at £10 per night, however it is a city, and to be fair it is very secure, and it means you do not have to worry about it for the duration of your stay. We would definitely stay here again, and cannot wait to go back. Very sad to leave!
