  • Great restaurants in the centre, loved our stay and very efficient and friendly reception staff. Comfy beds and rooms, good kitchen and bathrooms, lovely fluffy towels. Excellent facilities.

  • The underground parking is fantastic and direct on the Fountain Court Apartments website. A great local to walk to the old city and the setting next to the quay is lovely. Staff are very friendly and efficient, rooms modern clean and beds amazing to sleep in.

    Kitchen not well enough equipped.

  • Underground parking, great helpful staff and fountain court is one of the best choise we plan long stayt. Also very central location and easy access to everything, i loved my stay here and would love to return again in the near future, the apartments are well appointed and comfortable. Within 5 minutes walk of a wide variety of restaurants.

    Offers good value for money, poor customer service.

  • The sitting area was very comfortable, overall everything about fountain court EQ2 was great and the location of the hotel was good less than 30 mins walk to the castle. The staff were very helpful, the apartment was large and the kitchen facilities were also excellent.

    Noisy building works and that water pressure is low at peak times.

  • Great city centre location and underground parking was very good. This place was perfect for me and fountain Court EQ2 WAS EXCELLENT. Lovely contemporary purpose built apartment block on the canal, the staff was really nice and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. Beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipt and also spotless.

    Tv was difficult to use and picture quality poor, our bedroom was right beside an exterior door that was very noisy and busy, the furnitures were not out dated. The dishwasher did not clean the dishes fully.
