Stayed 2 nights and had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and in the bar on the second night. Have to say the food was exceptional and the staff were excellent, so friendly and helpful. The bar is a lovely room where you can relax and look out over the gardens. Our room overlooked the fields and was... More

Our room was small but well equipped but goodness how the floorboards creaked with every step and this got really annoying after a while.we were... More

To start with the positive; the restaurant is lovely. The view is delightful, and the food was exceptional, and very nicely presented. The staff, most of whom are there to perfect their English (which they have), are the hotel's best asset. Dinner must be booked in advance and as it is not possible to reserve specific tables you should get... More

Just arrived home from our 2 night stay at the Damson Dene hotel. It was an offer with travelzoo which was good value for money. The hotel itself is nice but a bit dated in places. We dined in the restaurant on the first evening which was part of our deal and the food was excellent as was the service.... More

Hi, we are a middle aged couple who stayed here last weekend. Here is my honest opinion: We found it to be a small quaint real English type of place, we had a great stay and the food was faultless. Rooms were small, the bathroom was very small indeed, but both were clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly,... More

As the title says, Damson Dene is both human and dog friendly. We stayed in room three, the "Four Poster Bed" room and, with our dog, had a lovely stay. The room is comfortable and clean with a large screen TV, biscuits, tea and coffee (lots of) and a jacuzzi corner bath. The hotel staff are really friendly, helpful and... More
