We dont often go to a hotel so close to home. We absolutely loved our night away on the Dakota's Lazy Sunday Package. Just married a day earlier, we were made so welcome by all the staff. They took the time to chat and very genuine about it. Dinner was lovely. The room very comfortable. All that we needed to...

Was meeting up with friends and business colleagues. Hadn't stayed for a few years. Booked an executive room. The executive lounge was superb. Cannot praise highly enough the gentleman from Venezuela who was working there. Service and attention to detail was outstanding. Had dinner-great food but possibly a touch pricey in comparison to other places of a similar standard. Great...

First class service as always in a relaxed environment, the staff always make you feel so welcome and special! As it was early and quiet we had the best seat in the house which would be expected but it isn't what I've always found in other restaurants. There was a large amount of sandwiches and sweet treats, too much to...

The Dakota is conveniently located for the business traveller. Car parking is plentiful and the parking bays are a reasonable size - although I avoided the 4WD's. Check in was efficient and business like and I was pleased to note that my room number was not announced - so many places shout it out and for a solo traveller this...

Arrived at Dakota to a very helpful and friendly receptionist. Had called ahead to check if our dogs ( 2 chihuahuas and 2 Poochon) could visit our room for a time without having to pay extra...and was pleasantly surprised that it was OK! We had a very pleasant evening and our dogs enjoyed their family time before going to bed...

On entering our room,it was definitely NOT a KINGSIZED bed.I phoned reception to be told that all rooms on that level were the same size and if we wanted to...

Dakota Edinburgh (South Queensferry) is a big, shiny, black monolith in a retail park, beside a motorway. So far sounds anything but delightful. And yet, as soon as you step through the door and the wind-breaking curtains, you are in another world. Inside is a very stylish, modern, slightly industrial, tranquil space where you'll feel instantly at ease. We visited...
