The hotel is in a lovely location in its own grounds about ten minutes drive to Bowness. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and tidy with tea and coffee making facilities, TV etc all the usual requirements. There are separate lounge, dinning and bar areas with plenty of seating and an outside terrace. Breakfast is... More

Wonderful review thank you. You do an excellent job of highlighting some of our best features so thank you for that. The ducks certainly appreciate being fed and all of the money from purchased duck food goes to charity so it is win-win! Thank you again and we hope you will visit us again in the future. More

The hotel is set in lovely grounds - beautiful dahlias in bloom while we were there. The dining room and bar have excellent views over the gardens and trees beyond. Plenty of seating outside and also comfy big settees in the lounge. The food was excellent, served by attentive staff in an attractive dining room. Our room had no frills,... More

We booked a Travelzoo deal for a 2 night stay and requested a twin room. Apparently this info didn't "come through on the system" and we were given a standard double (4'6" bed). We asked to be moved and were..... to a room with a double with a single bed; a much nicer, cooler and a more spacious room. Unfortunately,... More

Thanks for your review and we're sorry for the mixup on your booking. I am pleased, however, that we were able to make it right and that you enjoyed our location, view and leisure facilities. The heat in the room you are talking about was the towel rail, which has to be turned off in the room using the switch.... More

Can't praise the quality of the hotel enough, ALL of the staff we encountered were extremely helpful, polite and pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were very good and very clean with extremely comfortable beds. The facilities at the hotel are first class, the pool and spa and also the gym are excellent and spotlessly clean and... More

On the Wednesday the other receptionist was lovely and pleasant. Room a little small and the bathroom dated, room 9 shower mixer didnt work. Bath should have been cleaner. Food... More

We always appreciate helpful feedback and we are sorry you did not find us to be as friendly as the vast majority of reviewers on tripadvisor. We were only too happy to change the wine to something more suitable. We are pleased you enjoyed your meal with us and we will use your review to help us improve. Thank you. More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Damson Dene Hotel at the beginning of July. Straight away we were impressed by the grounds and external appearance of the hotel.

We visited this hotel recently on a recommendation. We found the room to be very nice, clean and well presented. The staff were polite and as helpful as possible. The bar area and restaurant were dated and in need of redecoration, the flowers were dead! However we must say the the food was wonderful and we would stay again.
