Hotel with a luxury feel!

Posted 19-May-2015
The hotel staff were excellent and helpful. Whilst I would say its not a hotel aimed at families rather more for couples, they did have highchairs in the restaurant and made up a small bed for our yr old son and offered us an early booking for dinner. The room was lovely and had a large comfy bed. Would definitely go back.

Swish hotel within reach of EDinburgh city centre

Posted 04-May-2015
Pros: The decor and ambience.
Cons: Choice at breakfast
Location: We were there for a family party but did manage to get into Edinburgh the following morning quite easily.
This was just a one night stay in Edinbrpurgh for a family occasion and wanted somewhere close to Barton. From the outside I felt a little dubious but my fears were allayed as I stepped through the door into a reception area with a very special ambience. The staff were very smartly dressed, efficient and interested in your welfare. It was not to have a room which was not the usual beige, cream or white. Very comfortable bed a good size, comfy pillows and accessible lighting.Above all was the quality of the bathroom- a walk in shower so you did not have to climb into a bath; lovely soft towels on a warm towel rail and quality toiletries of a decent size. A very pleasant experience.

Ideal hotel for relaxing or meetings.

Posted 29-Apr-2014
Pros: It 's the attention to detail and taking care of the small things. That seems to make the calm atmosphere where everything appears to run smoothly.
Cons: Perhaps a little more lighting in the area in the bedrooms where jackets are hung.
Location: The Dakota is not far from the M90, the Forth Bridge , South Queensferry with boat trips. Easy access to Edinburgh Airport.
Our second stay at this hotel and, as with our previous visit, we were immediately made to feel very welcome and 'did we need a help with our luggage?' . It was easy to relax in the calm, spacious surroundings and this also applied in the Grill. The friendly, professional staff were attentive to just the right degree so we felt comfortable. The food in the Grill was beautifully cooked and the desserts lovely!

This is a great business hotel, the only problem was very slow internet connection.
