Reviewed 23 January 2014

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.

We've enjoyed reading your review, thanks for posting it and for staying with us. We are in a nice spot for walks and, as you say, not far from the bustle of Windermere either. Thanks again.

We stayed in the Jacuzzi room and were impressed! The made us feel welcome and were flexible with our requirements. They went out of their way to accommodate our dog (she’s very nervous) and it was appreciated. The burger was possibly the best I’ve ever had!

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Damson Dene for two nights November 2013, for our anniversary and his birthday. Because it was a special occasion, we upgraded to a deluxe room, with a four poster bed and a Jacuzzi bath, and we're so pleased we did! The hotel was so cosy and rustic, because we were from the city...

Could have tried harder. Restaurant cold. The rooms were too small to spend time in and they couldn`t be bothered to light the fire in reception on the Saturday night.

We were certainly disappointed to read this review. There was some confusion as to the offer the guests were on; they thought dinner both nights were included but it was only on the first evening. From that came a few comments that otherwise may have gone unsaid. It was an unfortunate turn of events really. We agree though, there are...
