Can't ask for anymore really; clean, spacious, modern and absolutely fantastic features, easily worth double the £59 we paid. The accomodation offers classy and stylish facilities and we will definitely be staying again. It takes a lot to impress me: see my other reviews but i really am in awe here. Sent from my iPhone

A last minute booking--very helpful staff sorted out the booking and even provided keys etc on Christmas Day without any problems. Excellent rooms which are comfortable and with good quality spec. Excellent showers, great sound system and very comfy lounge area. Bit to cold to use the small balcony but can imagine it would be a great place for an...

My Husband, Brother, Uncle and I visited Edinburgh for the Tattoo back in August and had booked 2 nights stay at Harris Court. When we arrived, we were pleased to find out that we had been upgraded to a larger apartment in EQ-2. It was amazing, very spacious with good quality furniture, fixtures and fittings. It had just about everything...

We attended a conference at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. All of my colleagues were staying at the Roxburghe but we left it late to book and there were no rooms available. I did a quick google search for accommodation close by and it threw up the Fountain Court Apartments. We were the absolute envy of everybody. They booked into...

I have stayed at several Fountain Court Apartments - all good, clean venues and a great way to have a break. EQ2 is a little out of town but the centre is walkable. These apartments are fantastic and I cannot recommend them enough. Great new bar just opened on the Quay too (Hyde Out) and if you are into golf,...

Had an excellent stay at EQ2 apartments, the apartment was beautiful and would highly recommend a stay here. Apartments are set in an ideal location and have wonderful views of the canal. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the apartment was very clean on arrival.

We did not know what to expect because we had recently booked an apartment in London which was awful- we found the quality and facilities to be outstanding- despite us being a couple we had a 2 bedroomed groundfloor apartment which was spacious and very well equipped- we actually enquired about an extra night since we had found everything so...

Amazing hotel - great rooms with phenomenal amenities. HOWEVER, since they claim to be 5-star, there is definitely room for scrutinization. Beds are horribly uncomfortable - really need replacement. Location is a bit sketchy, lots of graffiti outside, questionable people on surrounding streets. Should not have to pay to park at this price. Overall we had a great stay and...

Found this place after reading reviews on the site so thought i should repay the favour and post a review.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
