Stayed 2 nights on a Wowcher deal which included a 3 course meal and breakfast both mornings. Food was very nice and all the staff provided a warm welcome and great service. Excellent location with lovely gardens (and lots of ducks) and handy for venturing further afield such as Windermere, Kendal and Keswick. Room and bathroom were clean, if a... More

Thank you for your lovely review and stay. We really appreciate your comments about our food, staff and leisure amenities. We're also pleased our WiFi allowed you to maintain contact to the outside world whilst you stayed; although sometimes being cut off provides for perfect relaxation! Thanks again and hopefully we will see you again. More

Staff are so friendly. Use if pool, jacuzzi, and steam room was good had it to ourselves. Log fires in the reception and lounge area. Resident ducks... More

From the moment we entered the hotel we were greeted with friendliness and smiles and this remained so throughout our stay. Beautiful setting, exceptional food, if there were any faults they were very minor and more than compensated for by the staff's helpfulness and friendliness.

This hotel is set in lovely gardens with loads of outdoor seating, unfortunately it rained the whole time we were there so couldn't take advantage of these areas. The reception area is also a lovely area to sit with settees and a fire. The restaurant is a really nice room and the staff very attentive and friendly. The food was... More

Thank you so much for your stay and 5-star review. We thank you for kindly highlighting some of our strongest features; excellent quality food, friendly staff and a comfortable setting. We are sorry for the naughty dogs (and owners!) in the bar. Our dog policy is simple; they are most welcome provided they have well-behaved owners who understand that the... More

My wife and I recently spent two nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Accommodation was first class as was the food. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful or efficient.

A great value stay, 2 nights B&B and evening meal for 2 for £149. Excellent food both in the dining room and bar. Room a little disappointing, with a little more care cleaning in the bathroom, it would have been great. Would like to return to see if this was bad luck or the general trend. Warning for others, this... More

Just returned from a two night stay at the Damson Dene Hotel, Crosthwaite. An added extra was we were able to take our dog at an extra cost of only £5 per night. Our stay was a birthday gift from our children to my husband and as we love the lakes this was a lovely surprise. The hotel is easy... More

The Damson Dene hotel is set in beautiful surroundings so cannot fail to impress as you enter it's driveway; the grounds are well kept, perfect to sit in after a long drive. The reception is very welcoming, even more so when the log burning fire is roaring on return from Bowness on a chilly autumn evening. It isn't difficult to... More
