“Wow, this is good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

As we drove up in darkness we were immediatly impressed by the look of the building , on entering it was beautiful, lovely atmosphere and decour.
Our room was HUGE!! Wonderfully decorated with everything we would need for a comfy night, the wetroom was spacious with plentiful hot water.
The staff were very friendly especially as our dogs would not get into the lift so we were shown the stairs for them ( yes they accept dogs!!!)
If I had a slight critisism it was a little to dark throughout, but a real gem, what a find, Ill be back for longer next time!

We booked the Dakota Glasgow for my
wife's birthday weekend, and having stayed at the Edinburgh venue I knew
what to expect. As it was a special occasion though I pushed the boat out a
little and booked one of the suites. As per usual the check in was brisk
and efficient, and the welcome warm. Moving up to the room we were pleased
to find a fabulous suite, which was very large with plenty of space and
some great touches. The dressing room is brilliant as is the mini bar
fridge which you could use for your own drinks etc, as it isnt one of those
annoying ones that log everything you take out and automatically add it to
the bill. I spent a very relaxing afternoon on the chez longue watching the
world go by from the large windows. Another nice touch was the delivery of
a plate of cookies, freshly baked, that we hadnt expected. We had booked a
table for a meal later on and this was very tasty and good value at £60 for
two including drinks. The only mild niggle with the room was the fact that
it only had a shower, rather than a bath which i would have tended to
expect in a suite, though the shower itself was large and powerful. I would
definately stay at either of the Dakota's again, and a lot of other hotels
could learn a lot from the business model in place here. Well done !!

We arrived late in the evening after our wedding reception & were greeted with champagne, 2 porters took all our cards & presents to our very comfortable double room where we soon headed for. We had arranged to move to a suite the following day, stunning, then we had dinner in the grill that evening, very possibly the best meal I've ever had, flawless in every detail other than location, pretty much in the middle of nowhere & next to a motorway.

I stayed at the Dakota for the first time on August 23rd. The hotel sits just off the motorway in an industrial/business park but we were aware of this on booking so the location did nit bother us. The staff were polite and the hotel was very clean and the decor was lovely (although the decorative cushion on our bed was so heavy i struggled to lift it haha). I especially liked the handwritten welcome note and the delicious fresh baked cookies in our room. Will definitely stay here again and next time will try the restaurant.

Fantastic hotel, atmosphere,food and staff all excellent, can't recommend this hotel enough. I look forward to my next visit. As in any business you can tick all the boxes but still have issues because the staff do not take ownership of the business aims and goals, this is certainly not the situation at Dakota Glasgow the staff cannot do enough for you and make your stay as pleasant as possible. A big thanks from me.

Stayed here for work recently and have mixed feelings about returning. I enjoyed the food and the service although had Wi-Fi issues, even after being advised that there would be none, nice cocktails but very expensive and took a while to check out but I have stayed in worse places. I would say that the rooms and dining area is quite dark and it does feel like its just part of an industrial park so on balance I would only return if it was convenient.

Room Tip: If you stay in floor 2 you should be able to access Wi Fi without issues, but I had a problem.
