Visit the hotel on 19th July on a dinner bed and breakfast rate of £193 provided via hotel connexions. Before I start the review I will say that perhaps we may have got a better deal and bedroom had we booked directly with the hotel. We will never know as we wouldn't return or reccomend the hotel based on our... More

Best value lunch in Gatehouse! Served in the sunroom overlooking beautiful grounds! Bar lunch menu is primarily sandwiches, soup and toasties! Fantastic service from all the staff, lovely fresh sandwiches, selection of teas and sweet treats! A hidden gem that I am sure more locals would appreciate.... And will be surprised at how 'cheap' it is, average sandwiches £4. Lunch... More

Visited Cally Palace in March 2014, for a 60th birthday break. Hotel and grounds are lovely - golf course good bit testing (but too many "non-golfers" can slow up play). Room was fine, pool facilities excellent. Problem was with the dinner menu and staff - poor value and not particularly helpful - whereas break fast was fine. Shame such a... More

Have been coming to Cally since before the golf course and always enjoy the drive through the gates anticipating a relaxing enjoyable stay with amazing golf, good food and chilling out. On this visit, and the first time, it was noticeable that gents did not adhere to the dress code for dinner and entered the dining room without a jacket... More

It was with great disappointment that I left Cally Palace after a two day break. The service was inconsistent, the food okish, and the suite shabby and tired. The grounds are magnificent, as are the views. Unfortunately they don't make up for the lack of "luxury" in this "Luxury Hotel"

We recently enjoyed a 2 night break in this lovely old hotel. We had opted for a suite on the 3rd floor (room 54). Fabulous room with a beautiful view over the first fairway down to the lake. Dinner was excellent and drinks prices very reasonable for a hotel. Golf course is challenging and there were a few lost balls... More

This is an amazing hotel with excellent leisure facilities, simply perfect for that luxury getaway. The approach to the hotel leads you up a mile long woodland driveway before the skies open up over the architecturally brilliant building, with its huge pillars towering over you as you walk inside. Check-in at reception was both swift and courteous. We were also... More

This is a delightful restaurant set in beautiful gardens and with all the finishing touches of a quality meal. We didn't stay at the hotel but maybe we will another time. The evening began with drinks on the lawn (it was a lovely summer's evening) and finished with coffee in the palatial lounge. In between there were meals chosen from... More

The Cally is an old friend. She is a magnificent old bird, with wings and a huge nest of the finest arboreal splendour you could ever wish to see. I organised a golfing trip for twenty one of us last weekend. We were treated with respect and kindness for every request. The food was great. The rooms were terrific. Larger... More

Although this hotel had been recommended to me many times this was actually my first visit. Everything about it was superb - including the weather! Delightful golf course, well maintained, attractive layout with some challenging holes - greens just a bit on the slow side. Bedrooms were excellent, breakfast was very good, dinner was superb, all served in a beautiful... More
