We stayed in the family room, great value, very helpful staff, (they were great with our two children) very good stay and will be returning. The swimming pool was useful to have as an option. Didn't get chance to try a spa treatment but they looked very reasonably priced .

We had a two night stay at this lovely spa hotel about 4-5 miles outside Bowness on Windermere. The reception and lounge area are really nice & comfortable. Being able to relax with full use of the spa & gym is what we went for though a little disappoint that the beautician was on holiday so no massage treatments which... More

We stayed for a midweek break at the beginning of June. We absolutely loved the setting of the hotel and the food was gorgeous especially breakfast! Wayne, the manager, was very helpful and made us feel welcome and organised a fun quiz in the evening. A thoroughly enjoyable trip.

I could go on and on repeating the positives that I (or others) have already said, so this one will be short. If you're looking for a cosy homely, welcoming hotel in a beautiful setting with great food - then give this hotel a try. We've been going for about 18 years, I guess that says it all. More recently... More

Very friendly staff and good service. Food decent and setting lovely. We went for the walking break which was a good deal - though we had to request the walks / maps which were part of the deal and were given driving routes first. The packed lunch was a bit 'thrown together' but edible. We were in woodland suite which... More

We came across this hotel by chance last year and have stayed 4 times since with our 2 young kids. Hotel is very clean staff are very friendly. The pool is great and the kids love the ducks!

Had the most wonderful time with my daughter - surrounding area, the actual hotel, our spacious, peaceful room, our dinner, breakfast, the leisure facilities, the professional staff - the duck pond!!!!...... I could go on but suffice to say I give everything 10/10 - a fantastic stay and will be back.

Fantastic stay at the Damson Dene. Beautiful grounds and lovely view from the bar. Hotel staff are very friendly and couldn't do enough to help make our stay an enjoyable one. They even set us up a table in the bar area for breakfast each morning so our dog could sit with us. Meal in the restaurant was very good.... More
