My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of July. We were given an upgrade to a room with a four poster bed and a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. Because of the bed the room seemed quite small but it had a fabulous television and plenty of coffee and tea etc. If you are using the... More

Thanks for visiting and for your nice review. Yes, the Jacuzzi will create a lot of suds and actually they aren't meant to be used with shower gels if you can believe it! We are surprised about your comments regarding our food as (after the staff) it is usually the star of the show! We do love that sticky toffee... More

We stayed one night this weekend (do so wish other commitments had not prevented us staying longer). We have stayed here many years ago with groups of friends, this time just the two of us celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. Reception staff were beyond polite and helpful, really cheerful and friendly too. Superb team in the restaurant and bar, excellent... More

We booked a weekend at Damson Dene Hotel for our first wedding anniversary and we stayed in the Bluebell suite. We didnt realise upon booking but this suite had a jacuzzi bath and patio doors which opened onto a small sun terrace and walled garden. The walled garden was perfect as we took our dog so she could run about... More

Wonderful review. Thank you so much for staying and posting your 5-star remarks! We think you covered all of our strong points very well. We would add that we don't force people to put dogs in their cars; we simply request that if your dog barks when you aren't around to take necessary precautions to not disturb those around you....

From the outset, this was one of the more difficult guests to please we have experienced. Although we work very hard to be a great place to visit, we understand that we cannot be the hotel for everyone. We were made aware of how unhappy the guest was with the room and were able to move them to a different... More

Stayed here in June for 2 nights on a groupon offer (dog friendly twin room). Nothing bad to say about my stay here at all. On arrival the reception team were very polite and helpful. The room was clean and beds comfortable. Food was amazing! We were given a voucher to stay again and definitely will be doing!
