Pros: We had very spacious 3 bed apartment on canal side with castle view, very comfortable. Plenty of shops, bars& restaurants nearby and only 10-15 min walk into city centre.
Cons: squeaky floors but it didn't spoil anything. .

Fountain Court

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Pros: Location and comfort. Room service very good on the whole
Cons: There were some small items that were not perfect and neede repairs but very little.
Location: The hotel is near Tollcross and a 20 minute walk to Princes Street. Buses are all nearby and taxis get there in less than 5 minutes.
Good location for Tollcross and the city in a quiet location in the remodelled area round the end of the Union Canal. Room space was excellent and stocked for four. Beds were very comfortable and though pricey was a cut above most of the typical competitors.

Room was a bit tired. Location was good however, need to be mindful of constant pedestrian given location next to Union Canal.

Ideal location for couple of days break

Posted Nov 1, 2015
Good facilities and very spacious.beds are not as comfy as hoped. Really disappointed that the double room requested had twin beds put together. No balcony and no real views to talk about as we were only 1 floor up. Stained covered cream colour carpet as soon as you walk in! Ask for a room higher up and facing canal!

Within walking distance of the main shopping area.

Posted Sep 23, 2015
Pros: Modern Open views
Cons: See above note about experience.
Location: Camera Obscura & World of Illusions Edinburgh Castle
Overall a nice hotel. The kitchen/dining area was a bit compact and the doors to the bedrooms did not lock. The staff was friendly but there were slight mis-communications. An overall enjoyable experience and would not hesitate to return.

Pleasant, ideal and good location

Posted Aug 2, 2015
Pros: The location was good. The apatment was nice, WIFi available which is a must and parking
Location: About 15 mins to get to Princes Street. Apartment next to a canal which was nice. Plenty of restaurants, takeaway bars
Forecourt apartment was really good. Bed was really comfortable, decor was pleasing. It was clean although closer detail to finer cleaning, like skirting, tiling back splas in kitchen. It was not disgusting more like at home before a good spring clean. Washing up liquid, dishwater tablet, cloth and sponge were all very handy and all that was needed for a few days stay. A plus was the private parking (charged at £10 a day) . Wi Fi was available and TV was good quality, a smaller one in each bedroom. The location was good, did not take long to walk to the main area of Edinburgh. It was a really nice stay and I would recommend this apartment and would definitely come back.

Good location and size

Posted Jul 14, 2015
Pros: We were given a giant 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen, and 2 bathrooms. Way more than we needed but was very nice to have. The washer/dryer has a hug
Location: Very close to the castle, the main street of shops/bars/restaurants.
We were given a giant 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen, and 2 bathrooms. Way more than we needed but was very nice to have. The washer/dryer has a huge learning curve, you wouldn't think so, but I ruined many articles of clothing. The location is close enough to walk to highlights, yet far enough to be serene., The man who checked us in was fabulous. Super informative and friendly.
