My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel from 31st Jan to 2nd Feb 2014. We were so delighted with our four poster bedroom with it's large Jacuzzi bath! The food served in the restaurant was absolutely delicious and presented to perfection. Wayne the hotel manager was a delight to meet and I feel he makes the hotel with...

I'm not sure the Damson Dene has ever been the setting for a novel before, you'll have to send us a copy when it is finished! We are really pleased you've enjoyed your stay with us and that has given you some inspiration. We'll look forward to reading your work. Thanks again.

We stayed for two nights on a deal my partner booked, room was clean and quirky! And the jacuzzi in the room worked a treat! We stayed in room 5, and had no complaints! The hotel is about 5 minutes away from Bowness on Windermere which is very convenient! The food was spectacular! The staff were great as well! We...

We were in a group of 3 couples and booked the Damson Dene through a deal on groupon. Warm welcome, cosy reception area with an open fire, the staff were very helpful too. The rooms are a little tired but again cosy and functional. The leisure facilities are small and there are a lot of outside activities happening e.g swimming...

Hi and thank you for posting your nice review. It is always nice when small groups turn up; it adds to the atmosphere. I am sorry you were shushed in the leisure centre; the lady obviously enjoys her aquafit in silence! Thanks for recommending us to others and we hope to see you again.

Stayed in winter last year under very unusual circumstances. It snowed so heavily that we almost did not make it to the hotel. Lovely warm feel when finally arriving to the main lobby with cosy fireplace. The receptionist - well - I have seen more enthusiastic people in my life but do not recall a name. The swimming pool was...

Thank you for your review. We remember that snowy February day well; helping guests dig their cars out was an excellent workout! No snow thus far this year. Hopefully you will make the trip up to see again in the future. Thanks.

Main reception areas comfortable and homely. Our suite was of a good size with flat screen tv and jacuzzi. Dinner was excellent and beautifully presented though the menu was more or less the same each night. Small but adequate pool and gym. Some upgrading required externally but all in all good value for a short stay.
