It was great to be back and it felt very much like coming home, we really enjoy the Damson Dene, we got a really friendly welcome from the young lass on duty who served us tea and coffee while we tried to sort out an issue with our booking. We got room 28 which was clean and tidy, the shower...

We attended for 2 nights. The welcome wasn't particularly warm as if our arrival was a hindrance but once we got past that we found our room. It was ok. Dated and tired but just a bolt hole for 2 nights. The meal however was very very nice. The portions were not massive but it was quite filling over the...

The staff were all extremely helpful, pleasant, and friendly. The food was excellent, with the evening meal being particularly delicious. The room was clean, welcoming, with a comfortable bed. A few points let it down. We purchased our deal from Groupon, and were upgraded to a 4 poster jacuzzi room without knowing. While we couldn't complain too much about this...

We have just spent a great 3 nights at the Damson Dene Hotel and I am pleased to say that it was a great experience. The hotel isn't a modern hotel but what it does have is plenty of character. It is one of the friendliest hotels I have ever stayed in, from the manager Wayne, to all of the...

we booked this as they are dog friendly and the dogs are allowed in the bar area so you can sit with your pet and eat breakfast , have a meal etc. However we left after one night. It is no good having a pet friendly place with zero soundproofing of the rooms. We could here EVERYTHING in the room...

We are very disappointed to read this review and apologise again that you did not enjoy your stay. Perhaps our cottage rooms would have been better, being quieter and built more recently and also giving easy access to outside for a slightly skittish dog. Just as a tip to others who have dogs, if your dog does require a quieter...

Just back from a two night stay with friends. The rooms are a little dated and not up to brand new Premier Inn standard, if that's the benchmark nowadays, but they are clean and comfortable. If that's a negative then the rest is nothing but positive. All of the staff and management are polite and made us feel very comfortable....

I had a great time at the Damson Dene. It's a very peaceful location with great views. It's nice to have breakfast with all of the ducks watching. All of the staff and the manager , Wayne, were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel and room were very clean and we'll presented. The facilities are good and the food lovely...

Thank you for visiting and posting your review. We're obviously disappointed to read that you found the sleep quality less than adequate, as well as your comment about cleaning staff coming into your room before 11 even with a do not disturb sign on. Needless to say, this shouldn't happen and we have had a discussion with everyone about what...
