The Grill is amazing everything reasonable in price and quality outstanding!
Room comfortable and stylish with everything to high standard. Loved the personal touches in the room. Thank you!
Concierge- prompt and easy to book service with excellent service especially Kenny who helped tremendously. Thank you.

I stayed at The Dakota a few years back with my partner for 1 night and it was amazing!

The hotel really is stunning, the rooms have a cosy homely feel about them and the facilities are great! Decorated to a very modern high standard!

The downside is the breakfast is quite expensive for what you get, however it was delicious. I have booked to stay here again in August :)

An unplanned overnight stay was a real treat! We were travelling north after a weekend break and decided to stay in Edinburgh to break our journey. There was a special May weekend promotion with dinner bed and breakfast, including breakfast in bed and a late checkout.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Service and dinner were spot on. Staff immaculately turned out and friendly throughout. What prevented an excellent rating was double (not king sized) bed, though at the price we paid probably to be expected and getting our breakfast order slightly wrong (we didn't report this as it was a minor irritation - forgot the yoghurt!). Would definitely return. Classy, sassy hotel!

I previously reviewed the Dakota Hotel in 2011 and have continued to visit for special occasions, and every visit (including our most recent in May 2014) has been excellent! From the moment you walk in it feels like a treat with a luxurious atmosphere and welcoming staff. We often go for a special night out even though its not far from home, as their dinner, bed, and breakfast packages are excellent value for money. Beautiful cocktails in the bar, delicious dinner with great service, clean, comfortable, modern rooms, an excellent breakfast (with continental selections as well as a hot breakfast options) before departure make a weekend night feel extra special! Will definitely be back and highly recommend.

I stay here quite often on business and it never fails to deliver. The rooms are clean and modern and remarkably good value. However, the food is worth a special mention. Some of the best fish and chips you can get anywhere. Can't wait to stay again.

Spent the night here as part of my partners birthday celebrations and have to say everything was as expected and also pleasantly surprised with just how good the hotel was.

For the price, i was expecting better than your usual standard hotels and it did not fail to deliver.

The hotel is decorated with a modern slightly industrial theme but also has a homely feel from the furnishings through to the pleasant that you encounter.

I also dined in the hotel restaurant and have to say the food was amazing. Reasonably priced food and drink done with a lot of style. The staff are very attentive and were happy to help with allergies that our party had.

Overall this is a hotel that i was expecting a lot from and it duly delivered. It is a hotel that i will always return to.

This hotel is an absolute gem, from the moment we walked through the door to the moment we walked back out of the doors a couple of days later, my wife and I couldn't find fault from the reception down to the chambermaids, the service, food and ambience was excellent. The same applies to our room also, excellent.
We wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel one bit.
Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
