Booked this hotel fairly last minute and, to be fair, we were warned that our room would be small and without a view - they were right! Initially it was hard to find as it is some distance from Bowness. On the plus side, the grounds were beautiful with a very sociable collection of ducks which delighted in poking their... More

Thanks for your visit and nice (as well as helpful) review. We've noted down your constructive comments on areas where we can improve so thank you for those. One of the best parts of the hotel is its location; serene and quiet, which is what brings many of our guests back to us again and again. It doesn't have the... More

From the moment we arrived, we knew this place was special. Really calm and laid back atmosphere with friendly staff. Room was small but fine and included all the things you'd need (toiletries, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities, spare pillow/quilts). Bed was comfy and as hotel only had a twin room left they pushed the beds together to make a... More

We were looking for a last minute break for two nights in the lake districted and came across the Damson Dene Hotel on Travel Zoo.

The "very goods" were the staff - particularly in the restaurant - plus cleanliness and desk organisation. Our room was barely big enough to house twin beds and an even smaller bathroom. The "not so goods" were odds and ends that just needed a few moments with a screwdriver - bathroom fittings etc. that were loose or missing for instance.... More

Thanks for taking the time to register your thoughts on your recent stay with us. We are delighted to read your comments about our staff and your evening meal with us.

I didn't know what to expect from the hotel or the Lake District itself but it did not disappoint. The hotel was about 7 minute drive from the Lake Windermere area.
