Service,food & staff was all good. Pleasant hotel but a bit dated. Housekeeping needs improvement, a damp cloth would remove the detritus of dust on surfaces, dado rails, pictures, mirrors, headboard etc!! The exterior could do with some attention. Nice grounds although broken pots full of cigarette-buts, not nice, & a lick of white paint wouldn't go amiss. Would go...

Thanks for your review and saying that you'll come back to visit us once more. In the summer, the grounds will be in bloom and looking great, which is nice. Sorry about the dust, but that is an easy fix! Thanks again.

This hotel has a lot of character Nice open fire in the lounge area with plenty of seats. The bar is very relaxed and overlooks the duck pond- as does the restaurant. The food was great and we enjoyed a 3 course evening meal on the first night. The staff were very friendly. Hotel very handy for visiting Lake Windermere.

This was our first time to the Damson Dene Hotel. We bought the Groupon Deal that included 2 nights stay, with breakfast each morning and dinner on first night, also the boat trip on Lake Windemere, we must say this proved to be excellent value for money. The food was top quality and we decided to eat again on our...

Super staff in reception, bar and restaurant. Impressive meals - especially breakfast. Really appreciated the use of the steam room/swimming pool area. room slightly disappointing - no view at all apart from emergency fire escape and staff quarters! Otherwise a pleasant experience in a hotel of character.

I booked through Groupon for two nights B&B plus dinner for two. I was greeted by friendly staff and a cosy log fire. We were upgraded to a four poster bed and jacuzzi bath free of charge. Our room was not modern (yes it had net curtains which seems to upset people in some reviews I've read!) but it was...

This review does not characterise the experience with us at all. It is interesting that the title to the very next review to this one is "Great value". There is definitely WiFi in the rooms, although we are still working out the kinks to our new system. These guests were on a special two night offer that represents excellent value...

We have been here before and never been dissapointed. We were in Room 1 - 4 poster, Jacuzi Bath and fabulous views. Food and service gets better each time, easy access to Bowness, Windermere and Kendal. Very considerate towards dogs, took his bed and he settled well, dog had his own room service (us) and was very happy too

We arrived for 3 night break, although my wife was poorly, so we checked out after 2 nights. We couldn't fault the hotel or staff, who made us very welcome. We anticipate a further stay later in the year, this time with our son and his partner. A very nice hotel and staff!! We will recommend to our friends.
