We had a great time here. The staff were just tremendous and a very homely and old fashioned atmosphere only added to the charm. Food was good of course and the setting lovely. The pool was scrupulously clean too.

Very comfortable in every way. Food excellent. Staff could not be kinder. A relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the country with scenery second to none. The weather could have been better but in such a comfortable hotel who cares!
We will be back!

Two night stay Friday/Saturday , booked online, easily accessible in lovely grounds. A get away for two nights but not far too travel. Reception staff were good n helpful, asked if newspapers were required and it was an easy sign in to the hotel, ample parking outside. Room was in forest wing, ground floor, lovely large room with plenty of cupboard space,hangars, drawer each side of bed which was spacious n comfy. Room was clean, carpet lovely, two easy chairs and coffee table,television no did player complimentary water. Nice doors leading out onto a balcony with nice view , room was warm n cosy. Bathrobes and towels supplied for anyone wishing to use pool,sauna and jacuzzi. There is no safe in the room ,valuables could be lodged at reception with a recent for same issued.
Breakfast and dinner were very good, advisable to book beforehand or on arrival at reception as they have potential for large parties to be dining, EG golfing groups,family groups , however we were seated in a nice location which we were informed we had to use during our visit at breakfast etc so it was lovely with view of grounds towards golf course. Pool etc was very nice and when we used it no one else was there so hour and a half stress free relaxation, though obviously at other times we did see others using it, small but perfectly fine sauna, small gym one treadmill ,cross trainer bike and changing rooms clean well looked after. The hotel I have read on some reviews quoted as being dated but it is an old house but it's for me lovely inside.
Lounges with high ceilings ,decor interesting ,clean carpets, coal fire in one lounge.
There was also a room with full size snooker table and downstairs from reception a pool table, ( pound from reception to use that) all other equipment from reception for snooker. The conservatory which also housed the bar was nice although could be a bit on the cool side, bar staff very friendly n helpful , also staff served you at your table if you were in lounge and although not overly busy were always checking if you required anything to drink or eat.
One small gripe was that on the Saturday afternoon a golfing party turned up in lounge and as the rugby was on that afternoon were looking to get a television brought in as no TVs in either lounge, as we were the only other two people in that lounge they did add if we minded, an unfair question to be asked, and although they had been told by bar staff no, they went to reception and a member of staff approached us with same question re television, we felt we couldn't really say no , so as I wasn't there to be watching television we left and sat in conservatory which was cool ,not warm, so luckily a couple of seats were available in the other Lounge so we trooped back through there. A television duly placed on window sill, I have to say one or two other couples there for afternoon tea went in and came back out when they saw the golfers in a semi circle round the tv.
In the dining room our stay was made even better by the lady who served us during our dinners and also one breakfast time, Janet a local from Gatehouse waited on our table and was hard working, very pleasant and made us smile n looked after us well.
Check out was simple , newspapers were delivered as asked the wine was good, the food was good,
On the Sunday after we checked out as it was Mother's Day we had a party booked for afternoon tea, party of 6 , the tea or coffee plus sandwiched n cakes was really good,very enjoyable and again staff so helpful so that was a great way to finish off our stay,
All in all a good two night stay and as its not that far away we will be returning in the future, although it's near its far enough and in a lovely countryside location with walks.

Room Tip: Forest wing has rooms with balconies and its near to the swimming pool facility etc easy access from car park

We found The Cally Palace Hotel virtually by putting a pin in a map, having wanted to return to an area last visited many years ago whilst staying at a friends cottage near Kirkcudbright.

From booking in to booking out, we encountered nothing but friendly attention from our hosts. We felt as though friends had asked us to house sit their country estate and instructed the staff to treat us as family, resulting in the most relaxed four day holiday we have experienced in many a year.

The Cally Palace is situated in beautiful parkland, with golf course, mature woods and lake, a short drive or even walk from the delightful town of Gatehouse of Fleet in an area of outstanding natural beauty. So much to see and do.

Our room was quiet and comfortable, the swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi a delightful prelude to dinner. Dinner! The Chef is a culinary artist, over the four evenings there was not one repeat of the four starters, mains or deserts. Wonderful memories of guinea fowl, lamb, sea bass, chicken, venison, much of it locally sourced.

Tables set with crisp white cloth and napkins with fresh flowers on every table, the staff warm and helpful without being obtrusive.

Extraordinary, in our our experience, the generosity of the hotel in not slipping in exorbitant extra charges. When ordering drinks or wine we did not have to sign chits, such was the level of trust. Were a diner to have sufficient room, over the four (five with coffee) courses, to wish a generous and delicious local cheeseboard AND a desert, they are invited to offer a modest £3! Also, each evening we were invited through to the drawing room, to sit beside the log fire and enjoy inclusive pots of coffee and plates of petit fours. So relaxing the atmosphere, we usually headed for bed before 10.

Breakfast each morning freshly cooked and brought to our table, full Scottish for me and local kippers for my wife.

Highly recommended.
