About Cally Palace Hotel

Families can enjoy the charm and character of this traditional style hotel where impeccable food and service are founded on good old fashioned values. Cally Palace Hotel is in a stunning location with beautiful scenery.

Cally Palace Hotel is a family friendly hotel surrounded by stunning scenery in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. An indoor swimming pool, table tennis, swings & slides, a putting green and an all-weather tennis court are among the child-friendly activities within the hotel and grounds. And of course the lovely extensive gardens are perfect for little legs to explore. An optional children’s sitting is served within the restaurant at 5pm, and a child friendly menu is offered throughout Dinner. Choose a family room with a balcony within the hotel’s Forest Wing for al fresco family time. Or maybe adjoining bedrooms to give Mum and Dad peace of mind as well as peace and quiet. With a fabulous beach within walking distance, and a nearby Chocolate Factory and ice cream factory to visit, Cally Palace Hotel provides the perfect base for families from which to explore this picturesque area..

Enjoy the ambience of a bygone age in this grand, opulent country mansion. Cally Palace Hotel is situated on the outskirts of the pretty village of Gatehouse of Fleet and is set in grounds of over 150 acres, in stunning South West Scotland.

Cally Palace has its own exclusive golf course, as well as an indoor leisure complex with swimming pool, to allow you to make your family break as active or as relaxed as you choose. The grounds of the estate and the surrounding forest are a pleasure to explore and if you are interested in wildlife there are many places in the area to visit. The nearby sandy beach at Sandgreen provides an excellent playground for kids of all ages.  

Family Accommodation

Each of the 56 bedrooms has its own traditional style and character. Period details, such as a circular window, are made features within this individual hotel room design. The bedroom accommodation embraces all the modern facilities you expect like satellite television. Choose a family room with a balcony within the hotel's Forest Wing for family alfresco dining. Or maybe choose adjoining bedrooms to give Mum and Dad peace of mind as well as peace and quiet. You will find the family rooms are comfortable and spacious; some have bunk beds for children with those glorious views over the estate grounds, lake and golf course.  A complimentary sherry in your room for your arrival and fluffy bathrobes are welcome added touches.

Child Friendly Restaurant

Children are very welcome at Cally Palace Hotel, with an optional children's sitting served within the restaurant at 5pm, and a child friendly menu is offered throughout Dinner. For your evening meal it is rather a special occasion and the hotel requests that gentlemen wear a jacket and tie. Although this may not be everyone's cup of tea I think getting dressed up rather adds to the anticipation that your taste buds are in for a treat. The first class cuisine is prepared using the freshest and finest Galloway produce and served in the elegant dining room whilst a pianist plays.

Lovely fish and cooked breakfasts are offered in the morning with a full range of cereal and fruit, breads, juices etc. Or take the opportunity to relax in the sunny conservatory where snacks and refreshments are available throughout the day.

Leisure Facilities

The Cally Palace Hotel boasts its own indoor heated swimming pool. The pool is complemented by an air-conditioned gym, spa bath and sauna. You can also arrange for a massage to ease away stresses and strains. Elsewhere in the hotel you can enjoy table tennis or pool or enjoy a game in the snooker room. Not only is Cally Palace unique among south-west Scotland's hotels with its own exclusive golf course, there are many other ways to enjoy the surrounding parkland and estate. There is an all-weather tennis court, putting green and croquet lawn. You can explore the hotel grounds on foot or on bikes and if you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of the local wildlife; roe deer, red squirrels or sea otters.

Location and Days Out

Within the Hotel and local area, there are lots of activities and places to visit, such as onsite Swimming Pool, Swings, Slides and tennis court - and locally a Chocolate Factory and ice cream factory with adventure playground. And Gatehouse of Fleet is very picturesque with a lovely park, museum and quaint little shops. The nearby sandy beach at Sandgreen provides an excellent playground for kids of all ages; with a vast variety of activities available, meaning that they will never be bored while you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
