Dakota Hotels named as one of UK’s Best Places to Work

Dakota Hotels has been named one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ by The Sunday Times.

The boutique luxury hotel group was recognised within the Top 10 ‘Big’ organisations category for 2024. They also picked up the ‘Best Places to Work for LGBTQIA+ Employees’.

To feature in the list, workplaces are ranked on various criteria such as employee satisfaction, workplace culture, benefits, opportunities for growth, and overall employee experience.

Katie Forrest, Head of Engagement, Learning and Development said, “Dakota Hotels is more than just a place of employment; it’s a family, a community, and a home away from home for our guests and team members alike.”

She continued, “We are deeply honoured to be listed as a Best Place to Work. We firmly believe that our unwavering commitment to our employees sets us apart as a truly exceptional organisation in the hospitality industry.”

In their listing, The Sunday Times wrote of Dakota, “This boutique hotel group offers top-quality service to customers and top-quality career prospects to its 585 staff. […] Many of the team have been with Dakota since it was established in 2005, with a number of the senior team working their way up through the ranks.”

Of the LGBTQIA+ award, The Sunday Times noted: “One of the values at this Manchester-based hotel chain is to “be your best self”. The firm scores 93 per cent engagement among its 54 LGBTQIA+ survey respondents.”

With five properties across England and Scotland – Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Motherwell and Edinburgh – the Dakota Hotels group is expanding in Spring 2025, opening their first North East hotel on Newcastle’s Quayside.
