I often stay at the Dakota for work purposes and admit that when I first saw the big black glass box in the middle of two rainy windswept motorways I was not impressed. But as soon as you walk through the curtained doorway into the cosy and fantastically designed lobby I changed my mind.
Reception are friendly, helpful and efficient and the rooms are a good size for the price and cleverly designed to optimise space with clever touches like drawers under the beds for extra towels etc. The rooms also have a good sized desk if you are staying there for business.
The restaurant is also top notch with a great selection of steaks and fish (not so great if you are a vegetarian I suppose) and a three course meal is very good value. Again the decor of the restaurant is also very good with subdued lighting and plenty of space between tables and a good bar area as well. The only downside is that solo business travellers tend to get seated across the room from each other which means you are staring at each other every time you look up.
The breakfast is very good with a huge selection which finishes off a great stay.
