Travellers' Choice
One of the great Castle Mansion Houses of Scotland, Carberry Tower is a multi-award winning, luxury 4 star Castle hotel with an award-winning Bistro, situated just outside Edinburgh in beautiful East Lothian countryside. Standing regally in 40 acres of stunning, private Estate parkland and widely recognised as Edinburgh's 'Castle in the country,' Carberry Tower is a place of intimate grandeur and to arrive here, is to weave your own story into a history that goes back to 1480 when our first foundation stone was laid. Since then, we have been a gathering place for Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses and over the centuries, the great and the good have all come to warm themselves by our fires and feast from our banqueting tables. And with 30 en-suite bedrooms, ranging from elegant classic rooms to larger family rooms, well equipped executive rooms and luxurious Suites, we are able to accommodate up to 70 household guests in comfort and style.

I live in Musselburgh, just a few miles from Carberry Tower, and was looking to book something a little different for my husband's birthday in December. I booked afternoon tea and an overnight stay. I was keen to book somewhere local, working in the tourism industry ourselves we knew how important it is to support local and given the tier systems thought it was a safe bet. From the first call to the follow-up e-mails, the staff went above and beyond. Lynn Head of Guest Services was so amenable and even upgraded our room to an Executive Suite. The room was huge, with a large four-poster bed, big grand dining table, and couch. We'd never stayed in a room quite like it. We really felt spoiled and there was even a bottle of prosecco in the room. The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious and it was especially nice being able to enjoy it in the grandeur of our suite. The breakfast the next morning was delicious with great quality ingredients. Everything was very well managed in terms of social distancing and health and safety as well. It really was a fantastic wee getaway and we can't wait to visit again. Thank you so much to all the staff but especially Lynn, you are amazing at your job and really did make us feel so special.

I had originally booked at getaway further afield for my husbands birthday but due to restrictions I had to change last minute to somewhere locally. I have to admit I was worried that being 5 mins away it wouldn’t have same wow factor but I had nothing to worry about. We had the best stay ... starting from arrival into reception area with Christmas tree and fire going .... to the lovely rooms .... then there was the absolutely amazing staff - I don’t remember ever staying somewhere where the staff went the extra mile to make your stay memorable ... especially in current climate - everyone was so lovely... then last but not least the lovely food in the restaurant! Thank you Carberry tower we will definitely be back! :-)

As the annual trip to Australia was not possible it was always going to be a challenge to find a venue that could compete for my wife’s birthday/wedding anniversary treat. We may have had to swap Centigrade temperature for the same number in Fahrenheit but everything else at Carberry Tower hit the spot. From the very first point of contact everyone was extremely helpful and, ultimately, welcoming. Special mention here to Lynn. The building is full of history and character and our room, The Mary Queen of Scots Suite, was even nicer than the website photographs suggested. It is really an apartment as opposed to a suite. On both nights we dined in the Campaign Bistro and the food was excellent. Due to Covid restrictions the usual breakfast buffet was not possible but on arrival we received a pre-order form with a wide, perfectly adequate choice. This ensured that everything was freshly prepared and the ingredients were from local suppliers. All in all this was a great experience and I look forward to returning in the future.

We had a wonderful stay with dinner and breakfast in this magnificent hotel. We stayed in the Royal Suite which was amazing, so spacious surrounded by antique furniture with a four poster bed and a massive bathroom with an 8 piece suite! So comfotable and peaceful. The hotel and grounds are steeped in history. Food in the bistro and breakfast room was excellent. The staff were so friendly and efficient especially, Lynn, Lisa and Gordon. A faboulous experience. We will be back.
