The hotel is in a nice setting and a good base to explore the lake district. The room we stayed in was #11 and has a four poster bed and jacuzzi bath, both of which were very good. Very comfortable bed and powerful jacuzzi although I was expecting a bigger tub, this was the size of a standard bath. The room was spacious enough for myself, my fiancée, our 10 month old daughter and our dog! We had fantastic views over the hotels gardens and the lake districts rolling hills. The room was clean however could do with improved decor, a couple of curtain hooks were broken and the bathroom was a bit worn. My only real criticism of the room was the shower which I felt could of been better due to its low power and poor temperature control.

The staff at the hotel were superb, very helpful and considerate. We ate in the restaurant the first night and the bar on our second and the food is very good, me and my partner both had the burger and it is the best burger we have ever had, well worth the £12.50 that I read someone question on a review on here!

I will definitely look at returning to the damson dene next time we visit the lakes with our daughter and our dog.

Just came back form a weekend at the Damson. very friendly staff, rooms were comfortable, and leisure facilties were good. Was a little confused though. The deal on offer included a 4 course meal on the first night. We had starter, main and desert, and found that the coffee had a supplement? Am still wondering where the fourth course was? The only thing that we can think of, is that we were offered a small bread roll when we sat down. Now forgive me if I am wrong, but surely a bread roll is NOT a course??? The breakfast was nice, but i did think that the meals in the bar were expensive. Burger and chips £13.00??? and when I say chips , you got around 8 chips in a bowl. TV kept freezing too. Nothing really major, woudl definately go again, and hope that we get FOUR courses next year!

Thanks for your review and for saying you will visit us again. I do apologise for the confusion on the 4th course. The coffee should have been included. If you want, please ring the hotel and they will refund the supplement for you. Thanks again.

Me and my husband have just spent a fantastic weekend at the damson dene. The hotel is lovely and all the staff are so friendly. Wayne the manager is brilliant he is there all day and night always smiling and having a laugh with everyone.
Our room had a four poster bed which was a lovely touch.
The food in the restaurant at night was absolutely lovely and we couldn't fault this hotel on anything.
We will be booking to go here again :-)

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel from 31st Jan to 2nd Feb 2014. We were so delighted with our four poster bedroom with it's large Jacuzzi bath! The food served in the restaurant was absolutely delicious and presented to perfection. Wayne the hotel manager was a delight to meet and I feel he makes the hotel with his charming personality and how he makes all the guests feel welcome. The hotel staff go out of their way to please their customers and this is priceless in itself... I am an author and I will be using the Damson Dene hotel as a romantic setting in my upcoming trilogy due for release in the spring! It's the perfect setting for my two main protaganists...I highly recommend this hotel and with it's spa, pool, steam room and sauna there is something for everyone. Thanks to all the staff at the Damson Dene Hotel. From D.G. Torrens (Author)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7, which was perfect for a couple. With a lovely four poster bed and large Jacuzzi...

I'm not sure the Damson Dene has ever been the setting for a novel before, you'll have to send us a copy when it is finished! We are really pleased you've enjoyed your stay with us and that has given you some inspiration. We'll look forward to reading your work. Thanks again.

Just been for a two day trip. My mum and I were big fans of the hotel documentary so it was a bit if a treat to stay in reality. I have to say, it was a fantastic stay. My little girl had a wonderful time being looked after by the staff. From Wayne putting bread out so the ducks would feed next to her window at breakfast, to the receptionist admiring her case and the waitresses generally making a fuss of her. Nothing seemed any bother. It was so relaxing and friendly that we will definitely be back. Damson dene you did not disappoint.
