Me and my wife had a one night stay here prior to going on holiday, we choose this hotel as we have stayed before and couldn't fault it and same goes for second visit. Very modern hotel with a cool vibe. We ate in the restaurant and shared the chateaubriand which was mouth watering and to our surprise were given 2 glasses of champagne because it was our 1 year wedding anniversary which was a lovely touch. Only a short drive to Edinburgh airport and you escape the corporate feel of the Hilton etc which has no identity. Staff were all first class from reception through to restaurant.

Stayed: May 2014

Nice comfortable rooms but don't expect any natural daylight as it's blocked out which makes the atmosphere very oppressive and depressing. Food is good in the Restaurant but is expensive for what you get. Nice location for walking down to South Queensferry

The Hotel is a modern classic, great service, great food and lovely rooms. This is the third year we have stayed at the Hotel and its is every bit as good as the first time. Looking forward to next year.

Booked this hotel based on the reviews for dinner and an overnight treat for my partners birthday! I can honestly say the staff were amazing nothing was too much hassle they made us feel at ease and after dinner the waiter took us through to the lobby to sit and relax with our cocktails that were topped up all night, the room was lovely. The only downside is there is no fridge in the room so we made use of a few ice buckets that were sent up to our room within minutes after requesting them. I will definetly be booking up again! We also bumped into Gerard Butler during our stay which made it that little more special !!!! What a birthday treat- thanks again to all the staff at Dakota!

Stayed here whilst visiting Edinburgh zoo as I could not find a nice hotel in the city centre for a reasonable price. I'm glad I chose the Dakota. Rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Restaurant food was delicious, some of the best I've had in a hotel. Staff we're very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again!
