Edinburgh - Week 1 We arrived in London at 7am on the 9th of Jan, went through immigration with no problems and then waited for our plane to Edinburgh. We found out that they had cancelled the first flight that morning due to high wind gust in Edinburgh (Eds). So we finally got on our plane at about 11am for our trip up to Eds. It was a bit of a …
... many churches (but didn't go inside) and of course the Elephant House where JK Rowling began writing the Harry Potter books as she sat there with her coffee too poor to pay for the heating bill in her apartment. The cafe looks out at a graveyard where there are three graves of particular significance; those of William McGo****ll, Mrs Elizabeth Moodie and of course Thomas Riddell. from the graveyard you could see the ...
... bands, highland dancers, and also featured bands from Korea, New Zealand and Mexico. Being a Seymour girl, which had many scottish traditions, I loved hearing the bagpipes and marching drums. It brought back countless memories from the many sports days, swimming carnivals and formal occasions, where we would all march down the hill to the beat of the drums. The castle acted as a spectacular back drop to the dramatic light show and fireworks during the ...
We caught the bus from just outside our apartments into Edinburgh this morning. It was quite surreal as we rounded the top of Leith Walk, remembering previous trips to this beautiful city, my soul's home and where so many happy memories of my childhood were born.
Despite the construction of the tram and the addition of so many new and shiny buildings, the heart of the old place still remains so warm and rich, and as soon as I stepped off the bus by Waverley station, I knew I ...
... store... I wish I could find a place like that in London! We strolled along the sea wall and out into the harbor where we met a nice fisherman who was about to head out for a quick toodle of the bay with his mum and invited us to join! We only had 15 minutes before our bus left but we went for it and it was worth having to run back up the hill to the bus afterwards! We spent the better part of the afternoon hiking and this was by far both mine and Adams favorite experience from ...

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).

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!!
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.
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.
