Fountain Court Apartments recognised by World Travel Awards

World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony 2016 took place at Forte Village, Sardinia

Fountain Court Apartments has been awarded the prestigious title of Scotland’s Leading Serviced Apartments at the World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony.

Director John Neil commented: “We are delighted to win this award, particularly as the World Travel Awards are predominantly voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide in addition to those familiar with our brand, and this accolade recognises the hard work and commitment to excellence our team at Fountain Court strive for.”

This year Fountain Court opened its eighth property in Edinburgh’s city centre, Braid Apartments, bringing the total number of serviced apartments which it is operating in Edinburgh to 230, accounting for over 20 per cent of the capital’s apartment sector.

Neil added: “The serviced apartment sector has experienced significant growth over recent years and is one of the fastest growing areas in the UK hospitality industry, currently with a market share of 3.1 per cent of the UK’s accommodation sector, and seven per cent in Edinburgh.”

As well as being the largest financial hub outside London, Edinburgh continues to benefit from its global status as a premier destination for tourists throughout the calendar year. 

Savvy leisure travellers are looking to serviced apartments for a more family-friendly place to stay with plenty of space for entertaining and dining.
