Wonderful ambience in downstairs area and good too

Posted 31-May-2017
Pros: Good location for access to airport, efficient friendly staff, and overall interior design, comfort
Cons: Room really needed better interior lighting and easy access to powerpoints.
Everything seemed to run very smoothly at this hotel, it had a nice vibe, and I'd definitely stay at the Dakota again.

Very fancy hotel

Posted 30-May-2017
This is a "near the airport" type of hotel, with a twist that the style is amazingly cool. Great decoration, very interesting. Very friendly and efficient staff, big rooms with great comfort, all clean and new. I believe it was not too cheap, but you definitely pay for a great stay. Oh and there is a Tesco and some restaurants right in front of it. Very modern and comfortable.

Great Hotel

Posted 30-May-2017
We stayed here as we were eaving the next day and wanted to be closed to the airport. We had a medical problem and the hotel staff was outstanding. They went out of their way to find a medical facility and booked our appointment. The hotel is also outstanding. Clean rooms, beds were very comformtable and meals good. There are also excellent resjurants within 5 minutes

Comfortable hotel

Posted 28-May-2017
Pros: Good value compared to central hotel.
Cons: The strange smell in the bedroom and running the airport shuttle later.
Location: Not much but there is a large Tescos and a couple of restaurants a short walk away.
The hotel is quite a way out of central Edinburgh but there is a Tesco store, Frank and Benny's and other fast food places nearby. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The hotel is quite dark inside. The hotel room was comfortable but there was a strange and not too pleasant smell from the start that never seemed to go away. Overall a nice hotel to stay in.

Picked it for free airport transportation.

Posted 26-May-2017
Pros: Free airport transportation, large flat screen tv, quiet room, upscale lobby
Cons: Maintenance recheck of light bulbs, shower door leaking, etc.
Nice clean room with comfortable bed, large flat screen tv, and modern bathroom with wall mounted toilet and corner showere. Full service restaurant and bar in the hotel. Experience a few shortcomings - a blinking led bulb in the bathroom and a leak around the hinge of the shower door. The room was also quiet. We selected the hotel because we had an early morning flight and the hotel provided free transportation (15 minute van ride) to the Edinburgh Airport.

Dakota maintains high standards

Posted 17-Apr-2017
It's a few years since we've been & delighted that Dokata Forthbridge has maintained really high standards. Staff, food & accommodation all excellent. Only gripe? Breakfast coffee is ordinary at best.
