Negative Reviews

Have car, will travel more easily

Despite being close to central Edinburgh, some visitors have noted that the hotel isn’t in the most convenient location Roughly 20 miles from downtown, the trip is still fairly lengthy by train and expensive by taxi Travellers with a car are best suited to travel from the more suburban locale Still, there are numerous transit options, as well as plenty of highlights near the hotel.

Money flows faster than water at the Bar & Grill

While guests of the hotel enjoy the fresh local menu and beverages, many have also mentioned the somewhat steep cost of food and refreshments at Dakota Edinburgh Hotel Budget-minded travellers may prefer to seek out less-expensive restaurants around South Queensferry.

Stuffy restrooms may leave you humid

The rooms may be ultramodern and comfortable, but the bathrooms, unfortunately, lack an exhaust fan While this may not be a game-changer, it does help to dehumidify the restrooms (and guest rooms) and remove any undesirable aromas.
