I stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend as part of a Wowcher deal. There are plenty of deals on there around the lakes but this one offered the best value (2 nights, use of their pool, sauna and steam rooms, en-suite, breakfast both mornings, 3 course meal one night (which was absolutely brilliant food) and afternoon tea for...

Used travel zoo and it was a great deal - two nights b&b and an evening meal. We enjoyed our cream tea on arrival and our table on the first evening was a delight looking out into the duck pond. I had a salmon starter and my husband had soup. We had the same chicken main and the same dessert.... More

The hotel is situated in a beautiful area but is a little isolated therefore a car is essential, however there is ample free car parking. ( a rarity in the Lakes) First impressions are important so the hotel lets itself down by the dirty white entrance doors which did not go down well with my wife. On entering the hotel... More

Myself and my partner stayed at the Damson Dene Hotel for 3 nights in April using a Wowcher deal, which was great value for money. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. The location of the hotel is both an advantage and a disadvantage - it's in the middle of the countryside, which is lovely if you want to get... More

Due to a long story and mistaken booking at an another hotel, we were recommend the Damson Dene. It was Easter Sunday and we were lucky to get in anywhere. The hotel itself is a little off the beaten path but don't take that as a negative. The hotel staff were very friendly and the room (actually one of the... More

We are delighted to read your review and we appreciate your 5* review. It is never good when a hotel mixes up a booking (especially over Easter) but we are pleased we could be there for you and that you say you'll return. We will look forward to it. Thank you. More

My husband and I originally stayed at this hotel 12years ago and when we arrived it was like nothing had changed.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in easter break, with a 10 year old and a 7 month old we wanted somewhere to cater for families after a day out in the lakes, this was ideal, everything we asked for from cot bed to sterilising bottles was catered for and the staff couldn't have done anymore to help,...

We visited this hotel through a deal purchased online. We have friends that have visited previously so were perhaps expecting a little more than we got. In terms of the deal we feel we had good value but little things could have made it excellent value. In terms of the hotel itself, it needs a bit of TLC, the decor... More

Stayed at the Damson Dene for 2 nights on a voucher offer, and overall we were pretty pleased with the experience. The hotel is situated in a very quiet country valley about 4 miles from Bowness – it is right next to the roadside, but since there is little passing traffic we didn’t have any problems sleeping. The bedroom was... More
