Dakota Edinburgh is a modern hotel with an award-winning restaurant located 30 minutes from Edinburgh city and 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport. Enjoy a special experience near the quaint village of South Queensferry, nestled on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Bold styling and subdued tones set the backdrop for the ultimate comfort, our bedrooms at Dakota Edinburgh are designed to deliver on every detail. Crisp, high-thread cotton linen for a beautiful night’s sleep. Stunning bathrooms with invigorating monsoon showers. Home comforts of 48” HD TV with Sky Package & Sky Sports. It’s the detail that sets us apart from other hotels in Edinburgh.

Immerse yourself in the heart & soul of Dakota: the Grill.
Our urban-chic, open plan restaurant is famous for steak. We source our prime cuts from grass-fed UK-bred beef, supplied by Scottish family butchers. With the lightest touch, we season and grill our steaks to perfection over hot coals. Seafood lovers will discover a range of mouthwatering fish dishes, from simple grilled cod to our signature monkfish curry. Be tempted to complete your dining experience by selecting one of our deliciously divine desserts. You’ll find intensely flavoured, classically inspired dishes on our Dakota Grill restaurant menu, made from the finest seasonal produce.
Relax by the fire, socialise with friends and enjoy your favourite cocktails at Dakota Bar. Choose to sip on a classic cocktail, explore our ever-evolving list of in-house originals, indulge in our premium spirits collection, or delight in a beautifully crafted coffee.

Enjoy a short stroll down to the quaint, cobbled village high street just 15 minutes walk for views of the River Forth as well as all three famous bridges; Forth Rail Bridge, Queensferry Crossing, and Forth Road Bridge.

Drive into Edinburgh city centre or take the train from nearby Dalmeny Station. Our stylish hotel is just a 30 minute drive from the city’s shopping, entertainment and cultural centre, ideally located for the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is just over the Queensferry Crossing from the Fife region.
