Beautiful grounds but lack of atmosphere in hotel.

Posted May 24, 2015
Cally grounds are lovely but hotel rather tired. Bar has no atmosphere. Frustratingly you can only have a four course meal in dining room. No chance for just a one course. So you then have to drive or walk to Gatehouse. Swimming pool lovely. Rooms in garden wing dark and view can be blocked with coaches parking

Hotel best for Bird Watching, Sea sand and Castles

Posted Oct 19, 2014
Pros: Swimming Pool, friendly staff, size of room and walks right from the Hotel front door.
Cons: Dressing gowns provided for the pool etc could do with an upgrade
Location: Many Historical Sites, splendid walks on deserted beaches, great area for bird watching.
A two night midweek break in splendid countryside specifically to see bird migration from Arctic Islands

Cally Palace

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Location and imposing building
Cons: rooms need a make over
Lovely location and building. Staff very polite and helpful. Booking via expedia was for two adults and one child, when we arrived the hotel only had a booking for two adults. Staff were quick to rectify and placed us in a lovely room. Will certainly be staying again. Only negative point re the hotel is that the rooms could do with a make over to bring them into the 21st century.

Hotel in Grand setting

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Setting in park environment
Room was stuffy. Wardrobe was smelling of damp. Bathroom cleanliness questionable. Bath wall tiles had mould on the grouting.

Beautiful location with plenty to do onsite

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: The rooms were large and we had a small balcony which was lovely Staff were very friendly and helpful The food was fantastic and worth every penny
Cons: The rooms are dated and not modern but perhaps that is part of the charm of the place
Location: Beautiful grounds and private golf course with woods and a 2 mile track down to a lovely sandy beach Great place for cycling with quiet lanes
We arrived with some trepidation thinking we had stumbled upon a very old fashioned but upper class hotel - this was a first time away from children for 4 years and we were hoping for some chill out and relax At the end we felt as though we had enjoyed a wonderful stay in a very friendly, charming hotel where its traditional values make it a very pleasant place to be - it was like stepping back in time - if you want a very modern place or simple premier lodge etc, then this wont be for you, but value for money we think it compares very favourably. The room was quite dated but very large and the balcony view into the gardens was lovely. The ensuite shower was good with loads of ppiping hot water We stayed for dinner on the second night and were not disappointed - the food was absolutely tremendous - 4 course with a very large wine list. Portions were not large but they dont need to be when serving food of this qulaity and taste Breakfast was also very good and set us up for the day The manager was an ever present and really attentive to guests and his staff (in a good way) - nothing was too much trouble even to the point of creating a cycling map for us for the day to come back and collapse in the jacuzzi and use the pool facilites (which were very quiet) was also great The hotel is starting to move with the times having removed its dress code for the restaurant and lounge. We did feel quite young with many guests being seniors but all very friendly
