Lovely hotel, situated in a very picturesque part of the world. Great for the keen walkers/cyclists. Lovely welcoming staff, can't do enough to help you. Also a dog friendly hotel, which is lovely to see.

We stayed at the Damson Dene for 2 nights in the first week of February Thurs-Sat. Upon arrival we were greeted with a lovely log burning fire and friendly service on the front desk. We had room 6 which was moderate in size but perfectly fine for 2 adults, above all it was clean and warm. We headed straight back... More

We booked a family room and ended up with a suite... all for under £90 per night for three adults... I have read other feedback and can say that our room was enormous and the beds and sofas were comfy. Food was excellent and staff were attentive - the pool and leisure facilities were as good as better establishments and... More

We have just returned from a 3 night short break at the Damson Dene Hotel. Everything about the stay was to a very high standard. The room was clean and comfortable providing a good nights sleep, the breakfasts and evening meal was excellent, well cooked and good quality food. Leisure facilities were good and changing rooms clean.

We thought it would be a restricted menu but it wasn't. The food was lovely the lamb shank just fell off the bone. The staff... More

A hotel which was OK but not spectacular. Room small but clean. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was OK if a little over priced. Not a lot else in the way of bars and restaurants in the immediate area.
