STAY DAKOTA

Posted 26-Aug-2015
Unfortunately my stay was brief due to an early morning flight...I got to enjoy my beautiful room for all of six hours! Handy location to 24/7 supermarket 2min safe to walk late at night for last minute buys, 3am wake up call, taxi to Airport 4.00am callout organised by reception, fast internet...I'd stay again!

Business stopover

Posted 23-Aug-2015
Pros: Reception staff were very helpful, polite and very accommodating. The room was great, may need double glazing improvements.
Cons: The restaurant staff need to look after individuals and not just their regulars. Chilled water in the rooms or a fridge would be good.
Location: There's good golf nearby, shopping nearby and a Frankie & Benny's restaurant for families. Easy access to the motorway and they have a gym.
Arrived quite late, quick freshen up in time for dinner, single dinner sat in the middle of the bar made to wait 45 minutes. Decided that I wasn't going to be kept waiting anymore so took dinner in my room, drink forgotten £5 charge for the privilege.

comfortable and convenient

Posted 19-Aug-2015
Modern hotel, helpful staff, convenient to Edinburgh airport. Tesco with fuel station nearby. Ample free parking. Room was relatively spacious as UK goes. Entrance and lobby are a bit weird, and the restaurant is pricey. No complaints; it was a good value.

Nice hotel, close to airport

Posted 17-Aug-2015
Pros: The staff is superb. Everyone was helpful and very professional.
Cons: I wish the shuttle bus could be utilized to take guests to the Dalmeny Train Station.
Location: Close to the airport and they offer a free shuttle to the airport.
My 9 year old son and I stayed 2 nights at the Dakota Forthbridge last week. The room was clean and quiet. We arrived early, but our room wasn't ready to check in. We went into Edinburgh to sightsee and by the time we got back, it was close to 9 pm. They had already moved all of our luggage up to our room and it was a very nice stay. I can't say anything about the restaurant as we didn't eat in it, but we did order room service with 10 minutes to spare on the last night. The food was prompt and hot and very very good.

Recommend with reservation

Posted 16-Aug-2015
Pros: Clean and modern bath fixtures
Cons: Not much...it is what it is.
Location: Good stopping off place on the way to the airport.
After touring Scotland in older B&B hotels, the newer modern hotel was an adjustment but it was clean and convenient to the airport. Two complaints.....there is no shuttle service to the airport on weekends and that was not clear when we booked. Had to call a taxi (+ 20 pounds) and was late arriving....didn't know we should have reserved a taxi the night before. Finally, Could not eat in the bar as they had no service available because of a large event being held. Had to walk next door to a fast food restaurant. In general...just an ok experience.

Pros: The rooms are very nice. Very pleasant staff and easy check in checkout.
Cons: Safe in the room.
Location: The location is not close to the city centre and slightly complicated to get there. The location is about a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport.
Good hotel. The staff were pleasant and kindly arranged transport to the airport. Sadly the shuttle service provided by the hotel does not run on Sunday. The front desk staff did book a taxi for us.

Great Find For A Great Price

Posted 11-Aug-2015
Finding this gem through Expedia was a perfect find. Staying just overnight because the airport was situated 6 miles away, the Dakota is packed with big hotel style I'm use to in the U.S. Very modern interiors, colors, furniture and technology gave me a sense of relief upon arrival. And don't pass up their on-site first floor bar and restaurant! The food and service was fabulous. The overall stay was a super value.
