Just got back from Damson Dene. This was our 4th visit at this Hotel and would go back again. All the staff are fantastic, especially Wayne. The food is excellent and plenty to choose from. We had a superior room this time for room for the dog really good. We took advantage of the boat trip on Windermere, well worth...

We have just come back from the Damson Dene Hotel and our stay was lovely. We have stayed in a lot of hotels across the country and I must say the food was second to none! Especially the breakfast!

What a disappointing review. We have no guest rooms in the basement here at the hotel, but I am sorry we were not suitable for them. I'm pleased staff were able to sort out an alternative room on the first evening. Being extremely busy, we were unable to offer the same thing for the second evening. Again, I'm sorry we...

The hotel is very tired and noisy due to the style of doors and very squeaky hallway floor boards. Rooms and communal areas were not clean - almost as if the cleaners had got distracted halfway through particularly in the bathroom. Location is great provided you have a car, approx 15 minute drive from any pubs. Nice grounds but looked...

This review was disappointing to read and I don't feel it describes the true guest experience at all. The hotel undergoes a rigorous daily cleaning routine as is noted in many other reviews on here. Also noted on most reviews is the friendliness of our staff, and I would be shocked to find out any of them were in any...

The peaceful setting, the delightful staff, the gardens...and especially the outstanding food. There was nothing too much trouble. We heard guests being offered "whatever you like" in the dining room. Aside from this is the pool and fitness centre, all set in a peaceful area, just a few miles from Bowness. We will certainly return.
