“Relaxing break”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

we have just spent a very relaxing few days at the Damson Dene Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and gave the impression they really enjoyed their jobs. The hotel was very clean, warm and cosy. The food was excellent. Overall it was a lovely stay.

Had a wonderful time. Went away for a few nights with my boyfriend as a Christmas present given to us. Whole experience was great. Enjoyed the swimming pool and steam room which we used everyday. Food was fresh and tasty both for breakfast and evening meal. Our room was a nice side and very clean. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Would defiantly go back and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Room 11 was great. Any room with four poster bed and Jacuzzi bath would recommand

Wonderful time had by all. Very freindly helpful staff. If you desirer any extras don't be afraid to ask. They really will try and provide whatever you need. Rooms clean comfortable and welcoming. Excellent tea tray provided. Lounge very inviting especially the log fire. Swimming pool excellently kept, easily excessible & extra towels supplied for pool use. The restaurant was set out well and decorated with taste. The staff were suitable attentive & very helpful and friendly.The dinner was to die for if you like quality. Breakfast was for those who like quantity, eat as much as you like buffet, but the staff were on hand to provide freshly made tea coffee and toast at your table. The view from the dinning room was wonderful and the birdlife around the trees was great to watch while eating your breakfast. Our dog was welcome with us in most parts of the hotel.Of course not in the dinning room, gym or pool area. Staff genuinely seemed dog lovers. It was our friends first visit to the hotel but they are already planning there second visit as they were both inpressed by both staff and comfort.

Room Tip: Tell the booking staff what you need and they will genuinely help you. Honestly.

Fabulous weekend. Meals although quite small, were extremely tasty, fresh and well presented. Service quick and efficient. Relaxing atmosphere in lounge with roaring fire.
Other guests appeared be in similar relaxed mood helping the overall relaxed atmosphere of the hotel. Our dog was welcomed and well-behaved in return!

The 'hootenanny' cheese from Knotty Ash was beyond compare and to be recommended ! A quiz was organised by the manager for after dinner and proved to be unlike any other quiz we've participated !




Overall, a lovely stay.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay

Dinner was superb; we could not fault the service or the presentation and the taste was lip smackingly delicious. The roaring logfire in the lounge was welcoming and relaxing. Our hyper active collie was made most welcome, even given treats from the kitchen by Wayne, the Manager which she thought excellent. Walking in the hills around the hotel was pleasant but it would have been nicer had we been able to relax in the hot tub afterwards but it wasn't very hot. Good value for money though.

We appreciate your kind review of The Damson Dene Hotel. We do love dogs here and are lucky enough to have so many well-behaved varieties! The local area is a great place to go for walks and we are not far from all the wonderful places the Lakes has to offer! We hope you come visit us again.

Just spent the last 2 days at the Damson. Lovely quaint hotel, with genuine warm staff. Service was good but not overly attentive as having to press a buzzer to get bar service is not ideal, but at least the guys came running! Food was hot and tasty, but portion controlled!! Sticky toffee pud to die for!
Room (32) was clean and tidy, but a bit tired looking, and was a tad on the small side.
but the best bit by far was the wood fire in reception with the huge sofa's to sink into and snooze whilst enjoying a glass of red!
Left feeling a lot more relaxed than when we arrived!

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view as i believe there are rooms that look onto walls

What a nice hotel - clean, comfortable, warm and very welcoming. The hotel is set in lovely grounds with a large car park and duck pond. We were greeted with a roaring fire and friendly receptionist. The pool and gym aren't massive but they don't need to be and the jacuzzi was really warm. The staff were great and gave good service but it was the food that we will remember the most. Our evening meal, which was included in our deal, was delicious, with the sticky toffee pudding being mind blowing. The breakfast was just the same with good quality bacon and sausages and the coffee was hot and strong which was needed after a night drinking the scrummy chilled Pinot. Would we go again? Oh yes, on my birthday! (hint hint)
