Lovely presented hotel. However had to pat £50 retainer fee in addition to room price. This was unexpected and pushed on me at reception which was poor.

The Dakota Edinburgh is absolutely gorgeous, and the decor details are fantastic. However, I slept maybe 30-45 minutes for the entire night due to a strange sound that seemed like running water in the bathroom, yet no faucets were on. The staff reminded me of the Robert Palmer video from the 80s of the expressionless, severe women performing their music in tight black dresses. They were efficient but not friendly. I saw one desk staffer rolling her eyes at the other staffer after a guest walked away from the desk.

This hotel is located next to a Tesco supermarket and in a residential housing estate but very near to the motorway and important away from the hustle of downtown Edinburgh but very close to South Queensferry. We picked this hotel as we were making our way from outside of London to Aberdeen and wanted a few days stopover to break the journey and explore Edinburgh. We used the local bus services to get in and out of the city which are very good value and the stop is located a short 5-10 min walk from the hotel. Room was modern and nicely decorated and most importantly very clean. Food and drinks were great in the restaurant, we had breakfast a couple of days and dinner one evening with the bar menu. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a high quality hotel for good value but not located in the city centre. The only fault which we raised late on the first evening was that in our room we kept hearing a creaking/banging noises every 10-30 minutes, it was quite annoying to start with but got used to it. We were told that somebody would look into the next day but didn't hear any updates. It appears that other guests have also noticed these noises to it may be caused from either the air con units or the building itself getting warmer / colder.
