“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Everything is great about this place.very quick check in at the reception just up the street and safe and secure parking for 8 pound a day.The apartment itself is superb very clean with everything you could wish for.bonus is free Wi-Fi and safe.It's location is spot on prince's street,grassmarket and Haymarket are all within 10 minute walk.theres a cafe that does a full breakfast for a fiver just outside the apartments.There is only one negative about the place and that is our room 9 sufferred from traffic noise but on balance this didn't bother us too much.

Stayed in these apartments for a weekend break from 26/10/2012 until 29/10/2012. When we arrived we walked from Waverley Station which was a mistake as it was quite a way carrying cases. The reception staff were very welcoming and informative as they were throughout our stay.Once we had our bearings we discovered buses stopped at either end of Grove Street which was much easier than humping the cases back to the station and were good value at £3.50 for all day unlimited travel.We found the apartments excellent in all aspects and when we did have a problem when the shower hose split this was replaced immediately. We had a ground floor apartment next to the entrance and didnt experience any excessive noise. There was an electronic secutity gate to the apartments and all the locks had recently been replaced for extra security. Couldnt fault the apartments as even the location is not a problem as the bus service is excellent. Wouldnt hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed in Harris Apartment for 6 nights with my Husband and our young son.

The Apartment is modern, has double beds, TV's in both bedrooms and in the living area. Kitchen was very well equipped with all what you may need; kettle, toaster, microwave, hotplate, oven, cutlery, plates, pans, mugs, dishwasher and a washing machine. And even packets of tea, coffee and sugar!

Living Area was bright and spacious, with a nice balcony and big windows.
Bathroom had an unpleasant smell, but was well stocked with towels; hand wash, shampoo and body wash bottles.
Although it was 4 C outside, the apartment remained warm and cozy throughout the day, and hot water was always available.

Two negatives things to mention; the parking was a bit far from the building (especially when we were coming late with a child) and the carpet MUST be either deeply cleaned or changed – it becoming beige with horrible brown spots.

Overall, it was a great place to stay. I will definitely rebook on my next visit to Edinburgh – yet I will still be checking the carpet!

7 months - Monday to Friday, flying between London to Edinburgh, made all the more easier by staying at Fountain Court - Harris. 5 mins from work, ideally situated from restaurants, cinema's, shopping districts, the designer shopping districts of George St and Princes St (10 mins away). The apartments are modern, clean, serviced daily and have double beds and TV's in both bedroom and living area; everything you could want in a kitchen and smart bathroom. Staff maintain the highest standards and are eager to assist no matter what time of day or night. Really can't fault these serviced apartments, good value and they even store everything for me whilst I travel back to London on weekends. Perfect really!

Stayed in Harris Apartment for 6 nights with my family. There is a lift to all floors, so we didn't have to worry about moving heavy suitcases up and down the stairs. The apartment was very clean and spacious. I liked the freshness in the apartment with good ventilation from huge windows and sliding glass doors. Kitchen was very well equipped and stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, packets of milk, i was happy to find that washing detergents for laundry and dishes were also provided. Bathroom was very clean and stocked with quality towels,rolls of toilet paper and small bottles of shampoos. Water pressure was good as we stayed on the second floor; no problem with hot water. Excellent housekeeping. There was even a little store-cupboard for ironing board and suitcases. Strong wifi signal.
Overall, it was a good place to stay for a holiday as it is close to grocery shops and city centre. Traffic noise might be loud during rush hours but it wasn't a problem for us as we could just shut the windows and doors for a bit of quietness.
The apartment looked exactly as advertised, fully furnished and spacious.

I booked 3 apartments for my hen do, and each apartment was absolutely wonderful. We stayed on the ground floor and had a big balcony which was lovely to sit out on in the sunshine. All the rooms were clean, tidy, and furnished and maintained to a modern standard. The apartments are located less than a 5 minute walk from a Tesco Express which is very handy, and its only a 10/15 minute walk to Waverley train station (even dragging suitcases behind you!) Would absolutely recommend these apartments and will definitely rebook if i come to Edinburgh again :)

Room Tip: Ground room floors have bigger balconys!

I got this apartment on a late deal through trip advisor for half the price and I was not disappointed. It was big enough for myself, husband and 9 year old son and a fantastic location within walking distance to the centre of Edinburgh. We did have an issue with the hot water whilst we were here (hence the 4 stars) which took a little while to sort out. However, the day we checked out I received an email apologising for the problem we had experienced with an offer of a free upgrade to an executive apartment if we come to stay again.... I really hope we do take them up on this offer.
