Ok, so where do you begin. On booking this hotel it did seem appealing on the internet and they said it would be a romantic getaway but unfortunately it did not live up standards. On entering the driveway of the hotel it looked very tired and in need of a good strong coffee to wake it up. When walking into... More

We stayed here as part of a voucher deal so had two nights and a dinner. Initially I was a bit skeptical as our room was very small and a bit run down. We didn't have a shower curtain and the shower attachment wasn't attachable to the wall so had to hold the hose over your head to have a... More

This hotel offers something for everyone - from ducks who come to breakfast and dinner to pool and spa facilities. Staff are efficient and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and individual, food is fresh and locally sourced and the grounds are lovely to walk round or just to sit with a drink and enjoy watching the aforementioned ducks. Bowness and... More

We love the wording of your review, thank you for posting it. We do seem to have quite a few birds in the area don't we but we think our ducks are the friendliest and most intriguing to watch! Thank you again for all of your comments and we'll look forward to seeing you again. More

My compliments to the chef and all the catering staff as all the food on the day of the wedding was delivered in a tasty and efficent manner. I know that all the staff in... More

We were hoping to read a few more reviews from our wedding guests. We were delighted to play our small part and that we could help the day go so smoothly. Weddings always add something a bit special to our normal days and we appreciated hosting it. Thanks for recommending us to others and we hope to see you again! More

My husband and I and two friends spent 2nights, 3rd/4th September at the Damson Dene. what a wonderful relaxing stay. Yes, the bedrooms are a little tired, but the staff ,food and location more than made up for this. Eliza on reception was outstanding in her care and friendliness and the restaurant staff were delightful. I had two treatments in... More

Booked this hotel through a groupon deal and was not dissapointed. Hotel room was really nice with 4 poster bed and a Jacuzzi bath. Meal in the hotel the 1st night was really good with a good choice of options. Distance to windermere was too far to walk so needed to have a car to travel to the restaurants/shops/lake. The... More

Thanks for your nice review. We're so sorry that the beautician was off during your stay; she is certainly excellent at what she does but does deserve a day off here and there too! Thanks for your comments about our accommodation and meal as well. Thank you. More

The food was very good and the chef did an excellent job with the 3 course dinner he served. The staff in the restaurant were also very nice and friendly. Probably this was the only positive thing I can tell about the hotel. The breakfast was not very impressive. Just a normal english breakfast and toast. The location is however... More

On viewing the photo of the Damson Dene Hotel we were looking forward to a nice break near what looks like a large lake. How wrong could my partner and i have been. the lake was no bigger than a small pond. The room we had was noisy due to thin walls and bad windows. We couldn't have a wash... More

Quite a disappointing review to read. We do not pretend to be on any of the lakes and the photo referred to is simply a photo of our much beloved duck pond in the grounds of the hotel. We do apologise for the issue with the water and it seems to be fine now. Occasionally when everyone is using the... More

The hotel's postcode in our sat nav took us to a dirt track leading to a farm, but the hotel was literally just around the corner, right on the main road!! we stayed in room 18 and we could see the road from our window, but it...
