Great room, lovely meal, good quality ingredients, execution & service in the restaurant. Location very convenient in the centre of town, although lacking sports facilities in-house, relationship to Nuffield gym a 1/4 mile’s walk away.

This was our second stay at the Leeds Dakota and our experience was the same as the first visit. Reception and bar staff are excellent and were so friendly and willing to help. The room is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and lovely and quiet. However, the breakfast experience needs to improve. We booked a slot for 9am and waited an hour for our food, the staff literally made a point of ignoring us. No continental food was offered and we had to ask for drinks. When we complained we had been waiting an hour for our food, it instantly arrived but it was nearly cold. A shame as the rest of our stay was lovely. We will stay again but won’t be staying for breakfast.

We stayed at Dakota this weekend for my wife's birthday. Sophie dealt with booking for private dining in the Boardroom and was really helpful from start to finish. On arrival, Dave in concierge helped set the night up. The meal itself, was brilliant and our server A.J. was outstanding and really contributed to a magnificent and truly memorable evening, all of our guest were blown away by the event. All in all a superb night was had by everyone who attended. Thank You.

Spent a lovely night at the Dakota and was super-impressed by the quality - especially the fabulous team on reception (and especially Katie). Nothing was too much trouble and was met with a prompt, courteous and positive reply. Lovely room (looking out over Greek street but zero noise from it), super-stylish bar and restaurant areas. Very helpful doorman (we didn't catch the gentleman's name) who introduced us to the hotels welcoming dog, Fetch! Highly recommended.
