Having recently stayed two nights at Callow I have to say that it does not merit it's 4 star rating. The décor is dis-joined, nasty yellow pine stools with old antique dressing tables the mattress was not comfortable with springs, yes springs, squeaking . Black mould in the bathroom, badly patched holes where fixturing has been shifted, windows that wont... More

We stayed here as a treat in August 2015 not realising the place was worth little more than half the £110 for room only that we paid. The first room overlooked a hole at the back. The second place had a tiny, creaking bed with a worn out sofa, broken bath unit and 25 year old knackered mattress. Wallpaper was... More

Our room was supposed to be "superior" everything is just a bit tired the bathroom is tatty and the shelf above the wash basin is verging on the dangerous, don't they realise that people have to bend their head over the basin without whacking it on a glass shelf. The food has gone downhill since our previous two visits e.g.they... More

We returned to what was previously a favourite haunt with high expectations. Sadly, the change of ownership has resulted in a tangible fall in quality and ambiance. Clearly the focus is now on weddings with independent hotel guests like ourselves receiving very much second best. The decor in places seemed tired and in others bland. Small touches, such as fluffy... More

Lovely setting, very attentive staff, rooms big & spacious but could do with a little attention to detail in places as parts are looking tired, bar area needs to be a little bigger & serve a few more draught lagers/beers, wedding breakfast was fine but nothing special ..... Very nice but think the price needs to be lowered until these... More

We decided to have our wedding day at Callow Hall the first time we visited this beautiful property. It was the perfect place to celebrate our day and we weren't disappointed. We were able to get married in the incredible Secret Garden which was just the icing on the cake. It was a stunning location and everyone has told us... More

We were treated to afternoon tea at Callow Hall. It was late autumn when we went and the fire was on in the lounge the relaxed ambiance and pleasant staff as well as the fantastic tea ensured we went back again, we think it's great value for money. So much so that we decided to have our wedding ceremony there.... More

Recently attended a friend's wedding at Callow Hall. Beautiful venue with a very pretty setting outside for the ceremony. As there are only 16 rooms the whole hotel was taken over by the main wedding party so no other hotel guest were on site. This made it feel like our very own home!! The staff stayed in the background yet... More

For a hotel that is well known for being a wedding venue a worry was that we might just be one of a crowd. But not a bit of it. The staff at Callow Hall have the ability to make you feel that your wedding is the most important one they have ever had the pleasure to plan and that... More

Went on a 2 night stay for a friends wedding. Beautiful setting and a stunning looking building driving up to it. The wedding itself and the food and services were amazing. Married in the secret garden sun shining what an amazing setting. Just perfect for the bride and groom. Could not fault anything on their wedding day. The only thing... More
