Whilst looking at this site there was a price drop as I looked at the page so I promptly booked it. On arrival I booked in and was given the keys to our allotted room. On entry the room although small...

I note the comment by the General Manager Douglas McCreadie regarding Bob M's review of Carberry Tower. My husband and I hosted the wedding and did in fact complain to the Scottish General Manager about the the things Bob mentioned in his review. The virtually cold food, and lack of chice for the last few tables were our main concern....

We stayed on a Saturday evening prior to the Wings and Wheels show at the National Museum of Flight next day. Turning off the main road we were met by a fabulous tree lined drive up to this impressive hotel with ample safe parking for our classic cars. The inside of the hotel is equally stunning, lots of character, open...

A tremendous venue in a beautiful location. Staff were pleasant, friendly, helpful but not over attentive which made for a very nice relaxing stay. The building is a wonderful history story with some lovely quirky touches. The room was very clean and we had a most comfortable night's sleep. Both the evening meal and breakfast were excellent, well cooked, beautifully...

This castle was away from the main city center of edinburgh. But, if you wanted a castle with amazing surroundings away from hussle and bussle, this is the place to be. I advice to hire a car to go around places. If you do not have a car, you'll be walking half mile down the hill. If youre new to...

The grounds are beautiful and the vision of the hotel sitting proudly at the end of a very long driveway is magnificent. I had attended a few conferences there in the past and fell in love with the hotel and its location so; we decided to stay there as we were attending a wedding in the vicinity. Unfortunately, the excitement...

What a fantastic place! I tried last minute to book a bed for the night around the Musselburgh area, but even the Travelodge, located just off the bypass and in a car park, were asking for £110 for the night. I got a single room here with a smashing breakfast for £89. Feeling very smug on the drive up to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carberry Tower Mansion House and Estate is a place of intimate grandeur. And to arrive here is to weave your own journey into a story 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 also come to warm themselves by our fires and feast from our banqueting tables. And today, more strongly than ever, the banner that reigns over Carberry Tower continues to reflect the matchless values of excellence, abundance and grace - coupled together of course, with the very warmest of Scottish hospitality. Guests can dine in the Rose Garden Restaurant and enjoy a four course menu designed by Head Chef, commencing with canapes and a welcome drinks reception. Private dining for 2 or banquets can also be arranged. ... more   less
