We stayed for 4 nights in a double room described as "superior" - but superior to what? On arrival we were given a condescending once over up and down look at the reception desk, our room has clear unprepared way damage to the cornices and walls (the mold was complimentary), housekeeping omitted to remove the soaps / shampoo from the previous occupant AND had helpfully left the accompanying hair (we had to ask for this to be removed). There was no change of bedding for the duration of our stay. A pot of tea for one was £4.40 which we felt to be a bit over the top. The view from our room certainly was over the front of the house as advertised - this is a car park with the garden a little further along. Callow Hall has self advertised aspirations to be known for the quality of their food - but maybe a focus on some of the detail related to getting the basics right would be more appropriate before they start shooting for the stars. If you don't mind a walk then this is a nice spot to be based for Ashbourne and Mappleton and it is in a picturesque area. There is a new ownership and they were clearly doing some upgrading in the grounds: but we didn't book our stay in the grounds or sleep in the flower beds so we suggest you check your room first.
