This is the third time I have stayed at Dakota, which probably says it all. It is 5 minutes off the M1, beautiful appearance, lovely decor with a great sofa open fireplace area near the bar, nice beds and rooms, great bathroom, and reasonably priced. I have given 4 stars instead of 5 because I think that the food is... More

Sadly I have not yet experienced the Dakota Hotel, only the reservations department when trying to book a Cream Tea on a Saturday evening for the following Sunday afternoon I was told the chef needs 48 hours notice 'sorry its our policy'. I was told because the hotel need to go out and buy supplies for the Cream Tea! I... More

Dear Guest I am sorry to read your comment. The issue is not the sandwiches or the sparkling wine but the fresh preperation of scones and desserts. I believe if you look at the fine print on the booking you will find the notification period required. As you called between 9 and 10 pm the kichen that authorises shorter notifications... More

Stopped at this Dakota several times while away on business, our office was on Sherwood Park, 1 minute away. I'd never heard or come across a Dakota before but so glad I did. The exterior looks just like a black glass box that could easily be mistaken for an office block. Inside it is just all so sumptuous, low lighting... More

Me and my partner arrived at Dakota around 6pm after a day in Nottingham, we were told food was being served until 8pm, which is good! Although we headed a little way up the road to the hungry horse 'the badger' which was nice instead of dining in Dakota. We were in room 509, the hotel has a really modern... More

The hotel is on a business park and unless you have a car you are stuck with what you got. The rooms are OK but past their best, TV ageing, furniture a bit bruised. The reception is quite nice and the bar OK. The service is indifferent - nothing really wrong with it just a little bit extra would have... More

I've been there for two nights during a business trip. The hotel looks very modern from the outside but is very nicely decorated inside. The foyer looks very cosy, bar and restaurant as well as the guest rooms are beautiful. For me it's the ideal mixture of a modern and comfortable style. The food selection was excellent - especially in... More
