Sustainable travel for a happy planet

At Fountain Court Apartments, we’re serious about our responsibility to the environment.

From lightbulbs to radiators, and suppliers to recycling, we reflect on every aspect of our Edinburgh accommodation to make sure we’re doing our bit for the planet.


We have recently refurbished our accommodation to get it into tip-top shape. Most of our apartments now benefit from energy-efficient double glazing, smart Nest heating systems, and AAA+ rated kitchen appliances. Each of these improvements allows our guests to enjoy the same high level of comfort while reducing energy use.

Green living

We make it easy to live sustainably. Our apartments have LED light bulbs, compostable coffee pods and refillable toiletries to avoid single-use plastic. You can also benefit from our recycling facilities and environmental housekeeping policy, which operates a four-day service with reduced-chemical products.

Behind the scenes

We’re just as committed to the environment within our offices, too. We operate a cycle-to-work scheme and our car park benefits from a city bike station as well as soon to be fitted electric car charging ports. We maintain a strict printing policy and 80% of our electricity comes from renewable sources.

The great British staycation

Edinburgh was practically made for staycations. A truly outstanding destination, we’ve got beaches, rolling green hills and extinct volcanoes. We’ve got comedy, nightlife and theatre. We’ve got museums, galleries and architecture. We also have fantastic public transport in the form of frequent buses and trams. Visit Edinburgh for an unforgettable experience, without the air miles.

The room was spacious, comfortable and very nice! The location worked perfectly for us. We walked to Old Town daily and there was a grocery right around the corner.
