Historical Traveler Reviews Fountain Court Apartments - Grove Edinburgh
Got it for approx USD 140/night and it was great. Very clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice option (apartment vs hotel room) given the Edinburgh weather (was raining half the time I was there). Centrally located (approx 10 min walk to castleand Princess Street).

Reviewer: A visitor
Just returned from a stay at the Fountain Court Apartments in a 2 bedroomed apartment. Walked in and it was just like home from home. All the mod cons including a hi-fi, dishwasher, washing machine etc. Staff very helpful and friendly, very clean place, near Haymarket Station which is convenient. Ten minutes walk to Princes St. Very quiet at night. Fabulous value for a 4 star. Couldn't recommend it enough!!!!
Great!!! what I want is 100% appear in the hotel
This apartment hotel is very great with 100% fully equipment, e.g. iron, washing machine, dishers machine, oven, mircowave, etc... also included diff kind of plates and knifes, forks, etc... also, the best is it will provide u salt and pepper for prepare food, provide washing ball for clean the cloths. So if u live in there, u no need to worry anythings.
Also, the free internal access is good for us to book our hotel onwards. I really appreciate the fully equipment and also, the room is not too small, it have more than enough place for me to put my luagge in and relaxing... If i will go to edinburgh again. I must stay in fountain court Morrison again.
Stayed there In Feb 04 for 3 nights, really really enjoyed our stay! The staff were excellent, the rooms were better than 'home from home' and spotless too! City centre is 5 to 10 min walk away, only flaw, and now its hardly worth mentioning, it the stairs. 4 flights of stairs with luggage or after a good days shopping is tough to manage. But deffo worth the hastle - recommended to all!
A perfect weekend
my husbend and i celebrated our first anniversary last Sunday and went to the fountain court apartments for two nights, i requested a quiet room and certaintly got it. the apartment was spotless the welcome pack was great, everything you needed was there even detailed take out menus and info packs, from dishwasher tablets to satellite T.V. we had a wonderful weekend and would definatley return, the staff were very polite and helpful. A perfect weekend, just perfect!!
No less than excellent
The Fountain Court Apts (228 Morrison) is conveniently located about 15-20 minute walk to the City Centre (Princes Street), Waverley Train Station, and Edinburgh Bus Station and about 5 minute walk to Haymarket Train Station. If you like walking long distances, then a leisurely walk to the castle is no sweat. There are several pubs, restaurants and take out places close by. Another option is to call for delivery.
The apartment is in excellent condition... very clean and well-kept, and provides a bit of a relaxing atmosphere especially after a long day of touring the city and elsewhere. The kitchen is very well-equipped... toaster, microwave, electric range/oven, dishwasher, dinnerware, glassware, serving dishes, utensils... you can actually prepare a fancy meal if you want to. There's also a washer & dryer, which I'm extremely glad was there. Also, food (milk, bread, butter, jam, cereals, coffee, and tea) is provided. If you need anything more, Sainsbury is just a 5-minute walk from the place.
Bathroom is also very clean. Easy to control temperature and continuously flowing water!!!
I only stayed here for 2 nights and had a very restful sleep on both nights. The bedroom is clean and well-kept and the bed is comfortable. Only thing is, since there are pubs close by, you do hear people shouting on the streets in the middle of the night. Didn't really bother me since I was too tired to be annoyed by it. Also, if you're staying there through a weekday, traffic can be busy in front of the apartment during morning rush hour.
I had a really great time staying at this place... definitely worth it!!! I recommend this place to anyone who wants convinience, comfort, and value for their money. There is no doubt that I will stay here the next time I visit Edinburgh again.
Just like home
Fountain Court apartments provide apartments which have all the decor and facilities of a hotel room. The feeling was very homey and comfortable.
When we arrived in Edinburgh, we had some problem getting the keys to the apartment since it was after office hours. However, that was quickly sorted out. Also, we had some problems getting to the parking lot of the Fountain Court apartments even with the directions they provided. Watch out for all those 1-way streets!
Great Value at Fountain Court
My daughter and I stayed at Fountain Court Apt. on Morrison St. in Edinburgh. The apartment was spotless; the kitchen was fully equipped, even with a washer-dryer; the location was quiet, but right on a main street only about 15 minute walk to the center, with busses available around the corner. This was a perfect place for people who like to have the option of their own food preparation; there is a grocery story 5 minute walk away, a great French bakery around the corner. The Haymarket rail station is a 4 minute walk. Everything was just right! I hope to stay there again!!
This place is the perfect location to see Edinburgh. The amenities (i.e. washer) are a blessing when one has been traveling for more than a few days. Very well kept facility and plenty of room to relax. I would definitely stay at this place again without a second thought.
The Fountain Court Apartments were perfect in every possible way. We had a 2 bedroom apartment that was furnished attractively, immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The apartments are easy walking distance from the major busline and The Royal Mile. There is a small neighborhood grocery store directly across the street for any necessities. I would recommend this property to anyone going to Edinburg.

... and caught the Airlink Bus to the Zoo, it ended up being much cheaper than we anticipated. We arrived there after a 15 minute ride and were greeted by Lauren, a volunteer. She escorted us to a lawn area, where we were to perform. I whipped out my new loud amp and the kids delivered a very good performance to all the people in the surrounding area and we handed out our flyers, buttons, bracelets to all. Smiles all over!!!
We then proceeded to walk ...
... been to Edinburgh and wasn't sure what to expect. If anything, I probably pictured a blue collar, industrial city filled with tiny, old red brick row houses like those in "Pink Floyd the Wall." And while we did see plenty of those on our bus ride in, downtown Edinburgh was as beautiful as any European city I've ever visited. Cobblestone streets, old churches, historic buildings, museums, cute little restaurants, pubs, and small pedestrian walkways ...
... the town I decide to pull over and put on a few extra layers and there opposite is a sign saying "coffee shop open".
Over the road I go and in through some large gates and up a long private drive which seems to go on forever. Finally after passing through a golf course and a few nice gardens etc I arrive at this coffee shop where a grand cuppa was to be had.
After a nice chat with the friendly staff I added a few more layers and continued my trip to ...
... and we went for a typical Scottish evening of haggis and bagpipes. It would be my first haggis experience! Excited to try this interesting mix of meat innards wrapped around tripe and covered with sauce, I prepared myself with a glass of wine prior to the tasting. Surprisingly enough it was delightful! I shocked everyone at home by actually enjoying this cultural dish.
As dessert of sticky pudding arrived, we were fully entertained by a local bagpipe ...
... to bring his own bags down. A little later, one of the workers that obviously was responsible for the baggage, came into the lobby and became quite indignant that he had gone through the hotel twice already and picked up the bags. It appeared as if the two were going to be involved in fist-to-cuffs. He stormed off, and about 5 minutes later came wheeling the luggage to the entryway. He didn’t appear too happy about it. What ever has happened ...
