I have thought very hard before writing this review as my feelings are mixed, a group of us went to the Grease Murder Mystery Weekend which was excellent and good fun so the weekend was very enjoyable. If indeed it had just been a couple of nights in the hotel without the entertainment I am not so sure I would...

Thank you for taking the time to offer us your thoughts. The Murder Mystery weekend was good fun and we are happy you enjoyed it. As always, we appreciate considerate comments on where we can improve. We are always working to improve the hotel, including making the very investments you suggest. We will continue to do so as well. Thanks...

Stayed for a couple of days midweek. Really nice hotel with helpful staff. We were upgraded to a family room as one was available which gave us some useful extra space. The leisure facilities were adequate for what we wanted: a sauna at the end of a day out on the hills. Food was excellent - we ate in the...

Lovely review thank you. We enjoyed the photo you uploaded as well. The damson trees are looking marvellous as others will see! We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your stay with us including the food, staff and location. We will hopefully welcome you back again in the future. Thank you.

Returned again to Damson Dene and the staff were all as friendly as ever and made us welcome and comfortable. Good quality rooms that were clean and well appointed just as we have always experienced. What wasn't as good as on previous occasions was the evening meal. The hot and cold salmon starter was missing the 'hot' element! The chicken...

Thank you for your review and your repeat custom. I am sorry the meal did not live up to the expectations we have set for you. It is a rare miss on our part, but we hope the next time you visit we'll be back to the standard you expect. Thanks for your nice comments about our staff and accommodation....

Ignore all the negative reviews for Damson Dene, people are entitled to their opinion, but it would be nicer if they gave a fair and honest review, rather than looking for negative points to criticise about. Initially I was a little disappointed not to be staying in the main Hotel as I felt that I was missing out on the...

We really appreciate your helpful review. We find once people check in to the cottages they are very happy with the layout, location and comfort. We loved reading your comments about our staff and food as well. We are pleased that the doggies were well-behaved (as they usually are!) for your stay. We hope to welcome you back very soon....

The best thing about this Hotel is that it's got a lovely olde world feel about it. The log fire in the lounge and the seating on the big settees make it a nice place to unwind after a long day. We must have dropped on a 'dog free' day because we never saw or even smelled one on our...

Thanks so much for your review and stay. We are pleased you enjoyed the old world feel of the hotel and that you enjoyed relaxing in the bar area. I am sorry your friends had to send their lamb back. Slightly "undercooked" lamb is actually a beautiful thing, but perhaps not to everyone's taste. We certainly hope you return to...

Thank you for visiting. Your review was enjoyable to read. Room 2 is a good family room; kids definitely enjoy being in their "own" room, but parents appreciate that they are close by as well.
