We have stayed here on several occasions en route to Scotland from Wales. Our last trip was a one night stay. This time we ate in the bar in the evening as we didn't want a three course meal, the food and service were great as was the breakfast buffet, where we were entertained by the ducks walking on the...

Just back from our second visit to The Damsen Dene. What can I add - loved every minute of it! We arrived Friday evening and stayed for 2 nights. It was my birthday treat from my husband. Wayne showered me in rose petals on the morning of my birthday and, again, more rose petals scattered on the table when we... More

Stayed 23rd/24th Sept 2014, the service at reception was excellent as was the restaurant staff. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty on offer. The evening meals were excellent and well presented. The room was clean and noise free and comfortable. The rest of the facilities we did not use as we were out all the time. WI FI in... More

Me and my wife stayed at the Damson Dene Hotel in Lake District for two nights from 22nd Sept 2014. the room was very clean and there were no noise issues whatsoever. We can be a bit awkward customers for some, due to the food we can and cannot eat. But i have to give the hotel manager, Wayne, a... More

We took advantage of an Amazon Local deal for two nights B&B, dinner on first night and a Windermere Cruise which was good value. Damson Dene also has a spa, which my husband likes. I can't critique the spa, as in the event, we were too busy to use it. We have a small dog Harry, so checked first that... More

This was a very delightful review to read from lovely guests. You obviously 'get' what we are all about here at the Damson Dene; good value, relaxing breaks featuring delicious food and a friendly atmosphere. It is refreshing to read someone who is pleased that o2 seems to not know we exist as well (although somehow Vodafone and Orange have... More

We had a Living Social voucher for a two day stay, with dinner on the first night. Also included was a voucher for a cruise on Lake Windermere, which altogether made it a great value deal. On the basis of others' comments about rooms on this site we went for a room upgrade at £20 per night, and that was... More

This hotel features on many 'deal' sites probably as it is a few miles outside Bowness and not in a village location. We booked direct with the hotel and got a great deal with the best rooms. The hotel is in a rural location near Crossthwaite, don't worry about a room with a view just go outside, its everywhere. Away... More

Wonderful review thank you. We love our location which, as you say, is away from all the bustle. We like your tip as well, it is always better to ring us direct (or go to our website) for the best deals and to talk through exactly what you are looking for. Thanks again. More

We booked at the last minute due to a good weather forecast in the Lake District. Check in was friendly and efficient. Our room was overlooking a courtyard with kitchen and staff areas, so no views, but was comfortable and clean. Shower attachment to bath taps was a bit of a pain to use but otherwise room was fine.
