Damson Dene Hotel, Kendal
Excellent4.0 / 5
Former private house, then youth hostel, then Methodist guest house, now upscale hotel with spa. Lovely location, good facilities, though our room was cramped. It was the subject of a TV reality show a few years ago and the wait staff seem to be still playing to the cameras. Would prefer genuine warmth rather than exaggerated manners. We were stung by the difference between the menu in the room and the reality of an expensive three course fixed price in the dining room. We discovered too late that we could not have what turned out to be the bar meal in the comfort of the dining room. Be sure to make an informed choice.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Stayed the penultimate week of August 2016. The hotel's decor is a little faded in places and redolent of the rooms I remember from my childhood holidays in the late 70s/early 80s, and I suppose that might put some people off a little. Not me - to be honest, the slight sense of nostalgia I got was rather nice. The breakfast was good; the staff universally friendly and helpful; the view from the breakfast room included visits from the ducks from the pond at the back of the hotel, which delighted all the children (including my 5 year old) and gave the older guests a smile. The swimming pool might - if being *really* picky - have perhaps been a couple of degrees warmer, but it was a good-sized pool. Didn't get the chance to use the gym facilities, but they looked fine; had the opportunity presented itself, I'd have liked to have sampled dinner at the hotel (based on the quality of breakfast), but the various trips around the area meant that it was easier to eat out. All in all, the base for a great holiday. I suppose the key question is 'would you stay there again?', and the answer is 'yes, without hesitation.'

If you don't try you don't know.
It was not bad for the first time here. But the hotel needs new decko. The room smell damp. We hear people walking and making noise all night in the room above. The family room is too small and there are not much choice for breakfast and dinner. The good thing is the swimming pool for the kids.

Basic Short Break
Room was adequate and the 4 poster bed a nice touch. However the whirlpool bath was not working. The wing that the room was on was very stuffy with no ventilation and the room itself was very hot and stuffy even with the windows wide open. Disappointed that the treatments advertised were not available, I was only made aware of this on arrival. On the upside the bar ran a quiz night for the Saturday night entertainment, the quiz master was very entertaining.

Nice countryside retreat, ideal for walks n rest
Damson is quietly located, about 20 min scenic drive away from Bowness, Breakfast buffet was sumptumous. Staff very efficient n friendly. We booked a cottage with 2 rooms. The cottage was spacious n well equiped, just room in attic very warm in summer.
