Have stayed here a number of times before. Lovely hotel, nice staff and we had a relaxing time. Great cocktails and really good food in the evening. Would of been 5 stars except a couple of things in the room should of been spotted. A double socket was a little loose and I had in fact reported one on my... More

We stayed at the Dakota for 2 nights recently, and as usual we enjoyed our stay, the rooms are always clean and comfortable, and the food excellent, staff are welcoming and friendly, and the addition of the new lounge is welcome and would certainly be worth looking at your executive rooms to have this facility, just wondering what else you...

As the title suggests we really enjoyed our stay at Dakota. The decor is modern and classy. The hotel was busy when we checked in but the reception staff were efficient. I was impressed the receptionist also had my dinner booking listed although I had booked.it separately from the room. We really liked the room. The decor here mirrored the... More

My wife and I along with our kids often use the Dakota as an airport stopover. The hotel is ideally located for the airport with a transfer time of only 10minutes. The rooms are comfortable with good facilities and excellent free wifi , perhaps a little "industrial" but that appears to be Dakota's trademark . The restaurant serves good food... More

I could not fault the Dakota hotel in any way whatsoever. I have been in this hotel previously for drinks with friends and knew I would love to come back to be able to stay. I booked the hotel as a birthday gift for my boyfriend as a little getaway and was truly impressed that there was a hotel of... More

The Hotel is super nice. Excellent rooms, stylish, clean and big. The restaurant / bar is lovely, very romantic and fashionable. I had a great Steak Tartare and my partner had "The best cocktail ever". Very very recommendable

To start with i have to mention the very friendly driver of the shuttle service provided by the hotel from the airport. Unfortunately i cant recall his name but was very friendly and informative about the attractions. The hotel is really nice. The lobby and the restaurant-bar have a warm and cozy atmosphere. Nice interior of the room with comfy... More

We've stayed here before but this is the first time we've reviewed it. As the title suggests, this is how a hotel should be run. Decor is very much to our taste so off to a great start. Check-in was so easy and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are very well finished, very comfortable. Shower was one of... More

I mean, it's alright. It's nothing you haven't see before and that's the problem with it. It's just........OK, but an expensive OK to the extent I didn't feel I got value for money. The Dakota takes that gloomy, dark wood and velvet style you see in Malmaison, not something I particularly like as it's really a bit depressing. Bit annoyed... More

Stayed at the Dakota for 1 night on a business trip. The hotel is wonderfully warm when you walk in and you are greeted by an open fire in reception. When checking in the staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed in a double room which was lovely. Room has everything you could need including iron and ironing board, tea... More
