We stayed for 3 nights 19 to 21 July. We were allocated Room 1 which had a four poster and Jacuzzi bath. The room was very clean and comfortable. We have a small border terrier dog and it was ideal for him. Dogs are made most welcome by all the staff. We dined in the restaurant on two of the... More

With the most glorious weather we had a fabulous 2 day stay at Damson Dean. Loved spending time in the gardens, breakfast was very good. We sat at the window overlooking the duck pond and watching Wayne feeding the ducks - very entertaining. Service was always very good, evening meal lovely, absolutely first class hotel. We will be back Christine

Didn't have chance to try the pool and gym facilities during our stay but they looked to be to the usual good standard expected of a hotel like this. Location is charming and a drink outside in the setting sun is very pleasant as is the restaurant that has windows looking out over the hills. Food is very good and... More

Thanks you for such a lovely review. We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the weather even cooperated; although we have had a great summer up here to be fair! Even with such hot weather, it is still nice to climb into a Jacuzzi bath after a day out in the lakes! Thank you... More

Stayed here for a weekend break. It's definitely not the Ritz, but there is nothing really to complain about. It looks dated in parts, but that actually gives it more of a comfortable atmosphere.The staff are willing and helpful.Our room was in the basement, which might sound bad, but far from it. It was quiet and had a great view... More

Lovely review thank you and we have had some excellent weather up here, which we're happy you got to experience! Your room was on the lower ground floor, and there is actually a level below without guest rooms that is the basement. Your lovely picture shows just what kind of idyllic view is to be had from these rooms. Thanks... More
