I've been coming here when on business for some years, and finally got round to a review. I come about once a month, so why do I keep coming back beyond the convenient location just off the main road for the forth bridge. The hotel is a rather imposing and modern block all in black, but as you come inside...

This was a return visit to the Dakota & I'm pleased to say it was every much as clean, professional, welcoming & enjoyable a stay as the last. Relaxation doesn't come anywhere near what we felt. It will now be our 'go-to' place for stopovers in Scotland with our four-legged members of our family (the dogs have never been 'at...

The staff were all very professional and welcoming and the restaurant was one of the best we have enjoyed. The room was large and very well appointed with a dark boutique like style. The car park was free and very convenient. There were some issues with the building though. No hot water on one of two nights was a disappointment...

Stayed here on business as it was very close to the forth bridge. The hotel is amazing, very modern and stylish. The staff were exceptional and everywhere was spotless. Each room has its own wifi router which is great to get some work done whilst travelling. Be aware that food and drink prices in the hotel are expensive but the...

As we had an early morning flight, I booked the Dakota to ensure that we got to the airport on time. Didn't use any facility's but the reception staff were very helpful in giving us instructions on how to get back to the hotel from Edinburgh city centre. Room was spacious- we had a twin bedded room so I think...

We had never stayed in a Dakota hotel so were looking forward to an evening away & we were not disappointed. On checking in we found out we had been upgraded to an executive room and on entering the room we were very happy, especially my other half when he found out we had skysports & movies.

GPS is not infallible. We were routed to the airport and had to stop at the Holiday Inn Express to ask for directions. While the property is close to the airport as the crow flies, it requires a circuitous route to find. Once there, it's a great place. You are next to a Tesco grocery store, a good Italian restaurant,...
