Stayed at the Dakota South Queensferry many times and told all friends and family how amazing it is. After flying through the night I arrived at 2pm for check-in and was abruptly told that 'check in was 3pm, come back then'. Not even 1 room was available at 2pm but miraculously they would be all available at 3pm. The receptionist...

We were glad the hotel was close to the airport having had a severely delayed flight with BA. It was clean, modern and comfortable and, although very close to the M9, quiet. Would be happy to use again. Did not try the restaurant. Very friendly receptionist at check-out. Glad there was all-night accessibility in view of our late arrival.

Apart from the dark and very gloomy ambiance of the hotel, it does not offer a shuttle service on the weekend. No indication when you book a room or on the website. A taxi to the airport costs approximately 20 Pounds.

Just back from an amazing overnight at Dakota Edinburgh. My partner booked Friday at Dakota deal for my birthday. We couldn't imagine we were going to have such a great time, whilst checking in we were informed we had been upgraded to a signature suite, we opened door of our room and WOW it's amazing, huge room with separate seating...

It is a big hotel with modern, nice rooms. The room was very clean. Unfortunately the whole hotel is dark, (matter of taste). The hotel is perfect after arriving or before starting at the airport. Driving time from hotel to airport is about 15 minutes by car. Dinner is espensive, but there are cheaper restaurants close to the hotel. Queensferry...

Whilst the hotel is quite nicely set it is in middle of nowhere and a by dark. The breakfast is abysmal with nothing on offer and lame excuse by an unfriendly breakfast manager speaking like a robot and repeating without doing anything about it that they have been busy and that the buffet will be replenished. Not at all te...

It's dark in all public rooms and the bedrooms are like caves !! Shower door leaks, shower has mould growing in it and room design is rubbish. Breakfast service on both days was a joke - service is non existent - food quality ok. This place can be summed up as "Fur coat - no drawers" - all looks and...

So ended up at the Dakota, earlier reviews have commented on how clean the rooms are and the was certainly correct, along with efficient check in staff, turned out we were better staying here than our normal hotel.

A 10 year old very modern style (American?) hotel. All black glass, dark decor and minimalist. Perfectly adequate for their market, - one nighters flying from Edinburgh Ingliston airport 6 miles away. It is on an industrial estate near the Forth bridge. We could not make sense of the room air conditioning, too cold at first, then on the second...
