We were given a gift of an overnight stay at the Dakota South Queensferry one Saturday in October. The hotel is located in a retail park in South Queensferry, a couple of miles from the Forth Road Bridge, and a 15 min car trip into Edinburgh. The hotels public spaces, are very dark, as is the trend with hotels nowadays but on a cold, and wet Scottish Saturday, it gives a cosy and welcoming feel. The staff on the front desk were very friendly, and we were allocated a room on the fifth, and top floor. The room was nicely furnished; with a double bed, large desk and a wall mounted flat screen TV. There is no mini bar in the room, but there are tea, & coffee making facilities, and complimentary bottled water. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with a large shower instead of a bath. The hotel also has a gym on the 1st floor, but I’d already been that day so didn’t test it out!
We dined in the hotel restaurant that evening, and the food was very good. A lot of seafood on the menu, but it did win “Scottish Seafood Restaurant of the year” recently! Again the staff in the bar and grill were very friendly and attentive, despite it being a busy Saturday night.
For the money, the Dakota is very reasonable, providing a welcoming and comfortable stay with great staff and good food. I’d recommend giving it a go.
