We had a lovely stay at the Damson Dene. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We had our dog with us & as dogs were not allowed in the restaurant(which is how it should be) & rather than leave her in the room, the staff set up a table for breakfast in the bar. We also had a restaurant... More

We stayed in a fourposter room which was nice and large with lovely views of the gardens and duck pond. Surprisingly though the storage space was poor, the drawers were just too small. The bathroom was ok but the shower was poor. Another small niggle was the bed sheet didn't fully fit the bed and kept creeping. The food was... More

My partner and I stayed for one night in the four poster, jacuzzi bath room. The room was gorgeous, with views of the garden and duck pond. It had tea and coffee facilities, a large television seating and a lovely four poster. The bathroom has a shower and jacuzzi bath, which is lovely but very loud! The staff were lovely... More

We had a good deal for two nights here and at the price we were not disappointed, but we would have been had we paid the full price. The bedroom was cramped and there wasn't much room to dry yourself in the en-suite bathroom. The decor varied throughout the hotel, smart in places but in need of refurbishment in others.... More

Well the good first; the staff were very helpful and attentive, we couldn't fault them. The evening meal was brilliant, I can highly recommend the Belly Pork and Black Pudding starter or the Daub of Beef as a main course. The linen and the room were spotless and the room had a proper full size hairdryer. There is also ample... More

Set in beautiful grounds, this wee hotel is a treasure. Although the room was too small, it was spotless as was the bathroom. The dining was an experience equal to a Cunard Liner!!!! Food was beyond excellent and served by friendly and professional staff. Booked two treatments in the spa and was pampered for an hour by Sharon. Wonderful!!! The... More
