My wife and I recently spent two nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Accommodation was first class as was the food. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful or efficient.

A great value stay, 2 nights B&B and evening meal for 2 for £149. Excellent food both in the dining room and bar. Room a little disappointing, with a little more care cleaning in the bathroom, it would have been great. Would like to return to see if this was bad luck or the general trend. Warning for others, this...

The Damson Dene hotel is set in beautiful surroundings so cannot fail to impress as you enter it's driveway; the grounds are well kept, perfect to sit in after a long drive. The reception is very welcoming, even more so when the log burning fire is roaring on return from Bowness on a chilly autumn evening. It isn't difficult to...

We weren't sure what to expect of this hotel as I had read mixed reviews, but we are great believers of "see for yourselves." We are so glad we did, what a place, staff were so hard working, but always pleasant, food was excellent. Also excellent standard restaurant and reasonablely priced.
