From the pick up at the airport until leaving it was a wonderful experience. Everything was as expected in a excellent hotel. The staff are excellent as is the restaurant. Nothing was to difficult for the staff.

Room Tip: hire a car as the public transport is not grat.

We arrived later in the evening, dinner set for 8:15pm. Arrived in our room which was very clean and tidy, quick change and down for dinner. Menu consisted mainly of seafood dishes as myself and partner dislike seafood out choice was very limited. We didn't get our cocktail that was part of the Friday package and on returning to our room I went for a shower then discovered our toilet wasn't functioning correctly. In the morning we advised the reception about the fault in our room, no discount was offered or any means of an apology. As a guest of the Glasgow Dakota and always happy with my stay there I was quite disappointed.

Anyone who has experienced the Dakota brand knows that it is all about style over substance. Employ cheerful, outgoing and 'attractive' staff and turn the lighting down to 'Chilean mine shaft' level to hide the blemishes and you can just about get away with it.

I used this hotel for a lunchtime business meeting, so ordered sandwiches and coffee. Ham and mustard. Brown bread for my colleague and white for me (sorry, but I am Scottish). When mine arrived I had a mix of brown and white. The brown bread was fresh but the white was stale. Stiff as a board. As it was Monday perhaps the Mothers Pride delivery hadn't arrived and I was being fobbed off with the remainders of Friday's batch. Anyway, as I say, style over substance.

The staff, however, are excellent. Perhaps that's why they get away with it.

If you are looking for a touch of class and some real ambience then Dakota is the place. The Friday offer is excellent value value for money but on the down side I had to request our cocktails and was overcharged for our food bill. In fairness these issues were quickly resolved when raised. There is a real sense of luxury in Dakota and everything about it screams comfort and quality. The staff working in the bar and grill were very attentive andTammy in particular was a star and did all she could to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

Our stay was fine, good food great service and very well decorated its the small touches that make the difference and free Wi-Fi went down well as well as the continental cooked breakfast in the morning.. No complaints for a cheap way to stay near Edinburgh this is the way to do it a fast train into the city is quick and efficient and means its never a chore to get to the capital.

Room Tip: No Gym or spa here but for a comfortable reasonably priced stay look no further!

My wife and I stayed at the Dakota in Edinburgh the night before flying out to Barbados on honeymoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As their restaurant was closed for refurbishments, they organised us a complimentary shuttle to a local restaurant and they picked us up afterwards. Kenny (the concierge) even looked after some of our bags while we were away on honeymoon. We also left our car in their car park (at our own risk). When we returned, we were pleased to find the car untouched and all our left luggage well looked after.

The rooms are comfortable and cosy.

Taxis to Edinburgh airport from the hotel are approximately £20 each way at the time of writing.

Thanks to the Dakota team for a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend them!
