Comfortable rooms. A bit pricey, but impressive non-the-less. Friendly staff. Train station a short walk/drive away. Well situated for travel into Edinburgh, and handy for The Forth Road Bridge for omward travel.

I stayed here with my wife yesterday (24/08/14) for a birthday weekend away. The room we were in was very nice. Very clean, and the staff were exceptionally helpful. On the whole I couldn't fault the hotel or the entire experience. The nearby town of south queensferry was great to walk around and the views of the forth road and... More

Stayed at the Dakota on Wednesday night and it was up to its usual excellent standard .Despite the festival being on the room rate was quite reasonable compared to lesser hotels closer to the city centre. I am already looking forward to returning.

We dinned on our return from holiday, after landing at Edinburgh airport. We dropped in by chance again and the 3 of us were accommodated in a professional manner, without any fuss, despite it being very busy. Service was first class (again!) and food was very good. My "dressed crab" starter was best and the 3 of us all had... More

Stayed at this ultra modern hotel in Edinburgh. The dark decor make this unique hotel special. The room was new and just felt like something out of a Tom Clancy Novel. Great service, great care great drinks. Delivery to the airport topped off a great stay. I will stay there each time at the Dakota at the olde Edinburgh town.... More

Chic, modern, cozy, comfortable dark surroundings, candlelit day and night. Comfortable room, great bathroom well lit (for makeup application!). Only minor niggle is took ages to find plug near mirror to use hairdryer - found next day! Staff were friendly and polite. Breakfast delicious, good choice, something for everyone. Would recommend and definately stay again.

we had a lovely time --but I am a women of an age and prefer a brighter surrounding, I enjoy the individualized care we received from Joanna, although she seems to have many tables to serve she did make us feel that we were the most important, with very attentive and prompt service. I love that we get free nuts,... More

I was booked here by a group so arrived solo unsure, I got a lovely smiling and helpful welcome so was put at ease immediately. it is a bit of a 'block' building, but inside the ambiance is surprisingly cosy. The room was comfortable and had all I needed including iron etc, and all very accessible so no 'digging around... More

So normally i end up in drab and dreary chain hotels with work, that's just what the budget buys. But this place was recommended by colleagues who've also needed to stay in the area and it delivers. From the moment you see the building from the motorway you know this is no Premier Inn clone. I only stayed one night... More
