We booked this hotel because it was offered on Groupon and seemed good value for money. We paid £169 for 2 nights bed & breakfast, one evening meal and a sparkling cream tea on arrival for 2 people. We then upgraded for a further £40 for the 2 nights to a 4 poster/jacuzzi room. On arrival at the hotel I... More

My wife and I have just returned from a two night visit to the hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. I have to say the hotel is not the easiest to find but my trusty Sat Nav came up trumps once more. Our first impression of the hotel as we drove into the large car park was that... More

Thanks for visiting and posting your nice review. We are quite surprised your Satnav actually did the job out here as most people's bring them to a nearby farm; talk about a good start to a excellent break! All of your comments are very much appreciated, especially those about your clean accommodation, delicious food (best sticky toffee ever is high... More

Had an absolutely great mini-break with my dear friend. The location, weather and staff were all amazing! We never stopped laughing with the never-ending wit of the hotel manager, Wayne, who, along with his staff, made us very welcome. We had a small, but adequate, scrupulously clean room, with lovely comfy beds and very good amenities. Ideal location for sightseeing... More

As we drove in to the drive, my daughter suddenly realised she had seen this hotel on television. As I never watch reality tv, I had no idea about the show. But from what she could remember, nothing seemed to have changed. At reception we were booked in and given our key. We were told the swimming pool was open... More

We returned to Damson Dene after 12 years and were pleasantly surprised with it. Very friendly, polite and helpful staff, good amenities including the new pool, and a spacy cottage to stay in. A well-looked after garden area,in natural lakeland settings. Free wi-fi was OK. The meals were included in our price and servings were plentiful and tasty, accommodating my... More

My girlfriend and I chose this hotel having been drawn to an advert on groupon for a two night stay, which was competitively priced for a couple on a budget. I'm pleased to say going down the groupon route paid off dividends; we had a lovely stay. Room wise we had to opt for a twin , where the beds... More

The hotel was clean, the staff were very pleasant. The food was excellent, we have been visiting this hotel on and off over the past ten years and always enjoy our visits.the only downside would be that the paintwork in certain areas could do with a facelift.
