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! Breakfast is a must. Due to the location hotel is very quiet so a good night sleep I guaranteed away from busy... More

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

Had a lovely stay here. Really cheap. Probably because there are renovations taking place, but they were very unobtrusive, room was lovely and breakfast was great. Staff attentive and professional. Fabulous views and lovely gardens. Also has a gym and pool, although I didn't use them. Best value stay so far.

Lovely review, thank you. We couldn't be happier that you have enjoyed your stay with us, including your wonderful comments about our staff and food. The ducks have quickly turned into the stars of the hotel, being fun to watch and feed. Thanks for saying you would visit again, we hope you do. Thank you. More

Took my hubby for a birthday treat. Spa was good. Food was great. Room was small but had everything we needed. Dog friendly too. Ducks liked to entertain, sat outside window in restaurant. Could do with refurbishing in certain areas. Great value for money.

My and my partner's room was lovely. Although it could have done with being modernised, it was clean and tidy and warm. The staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, they were friendly and went out of their way to make our memorable occasion enjoyable for all. I cannot rate them high enough. The food was beautiful, very well...
