Loved my stay here. We had a work meeting with the largest ham sandwich served up! The room was a good size, the shower fabulous and the reception team so helpful with chasing a missing order from our lunch order, then booking me a taxi for the next morning for a very early flight. I regret having such a packed schedule and an early flight as would have loved to stay longer. Thanks to the man on reception at 5.30 who made me a coffee to take to the airport. Dinner here was fabulous too. Would love to come back, just waiting for my receipt to arrive which hasn’t turned up in my email yet!

We had 2 nights at The Dakota hotel, great spot outside the city with free parking. Near the train station which has free parking and only a few stops into the city. Not much around so you are basically hotel based, There is a Tesco behind if you need any essentials. The hotel is a very dark theme but we liked it, gave a very relaxed mood. The shower was the BEST the WIFI the WORST! (None existent, the best I got was sat in the bathroom) comfy bed and nice decor.

We recently stayed at the Dakota and the hotel was lovely. The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was a great size and very comfortable and clean. We will definitely return. We did not eat in the hotel therefore cannot comment on the restaurant.

My sister got married at Dakota on 30th December and it was amazing, from the staff to the food, you couldn't fault it. She was let down a few weeks beforehand by Orroco pier and moved the reception to Dakota who were very accommodating especially Kim & Sophie!
