Free parking and an amazing atmosphere. Just a mile away from the fourth bridge and only 15 minute drive to city centre. The room was beautiful and we had sky with all the channels. Friendly service very clean and I highly recommend this place. Unfortunately I didn't try the food here but there is always next time.

We were given a voucher for the Dakota at Euro central. We decided to use it as an overnight at South Queensferry instead and had no problems swapping over. Hotel caters more for business people and the atmosphere of the hotel is very formal. Room was lovely and clean but no bath which for me as a mummy was disappointing....

Our small family group stayed at the Dakota last weekend. The weather was very cold and blustery but the welcome was warm, friendly and the staff efficient. The overall ambience is peaceful warmth with high quality fixtures and fittings throughout. I bring an ice pack wherever I go to treat an injury and the staff went that extra mile to...

Checked in at around 6:30pm last night (Friday 10th Feb). I booked the Friday night at Dakota deal which includes £20 allocation x2 towards dinner and a cocktail each. I was told that we wouldn't be able to be seated in the restaurant until 9:30pm, this was disappointing but we understood the restaurant can get busy and we were told...

Stayed for one night on business. Ideal location for me as my meetings were in the nearby dockyard. Rooms are large with a decent shower and extremely quiet at night. All the choices at breakfast available. Friendly and professional staff too. Highly recommended. Free parking.
