From the moment you drive up the long drive to this 14c castle, this is a magical experience. It has lovely grounds and a great feeling of serenity and yet it is only 20 minutes from Edinburgh. The room we had was first class and the breakfasts delicious. I'd recommend it to anyone - great value.

We booked two rooms for a two night stay On arrival at 3.15 neither of the rooms were ready. We were asked to sit in a lounge until called. It was 4 o clock when we were told the rooms were ready. Our room had a cot in which took up all of the floor space. There was no bath,... More

We booked a two night B&B stay on a Travelzoo voucher with a gourmet meal included. The short break was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel itself is beautiful with numerous rooms in which to relax, all furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The grounds are extensive and well-kept. I understood the 'Private Grounds' signs to mean... More

We stayed overnight in this beautiful, historical building. We had a very comfortable spacious room on the 3rd floor with a great view. We enjoyed a four course meal which was served in the whisky room. It was very cosy and romantic as they had candelabras at the windows as well as candlelight on the tables. The staff were friendly... More

The hotel is stunning, great grounds and setting for a celebration. The staff were friendly, but could do with moving a bit quicker - there was about an hour delay in getting the bar open on the day of the ceremony, leaving a lot of people hungry and thirsty on a hot day! The barbeque the evening before looked good,... More

I celebrated my wedding not so long ago in Carberry tower. The place is spectacular, the chef and food that was served was great and the rooms were beautiful. The management, however, was pitiful. The staff, although friendly, had no idea what they were supposed to be doing. The days events: I got ready in one of Carberrys suites, the... More

I highly recommend your facility, the accommodations and setting are equally beautiful. The only down side was difficulty connecting to wireless in our room, but everything else was superb. The breakfast included is equally good, but, I believe one can order a "full or half board" as well.

Glorious hotel in beautiful surroundings...felt less like being in a hotel but more like being in someone's rather lovely country home..just on a larger, more formal scale. The staff were warm, attentive and highly efficient in an unobtrusive way...just perfect for a romantic break. The rooms have been refurbished recently and everything looked and felt new and fresh and tastefully... More

Booked this through Secret Escapes to celebrate my partner's birthday. Castle is gorgeous in landscaped parkland. However, it was obvious on arrival that the staff were worn out (or missing) after a run of weddings and events. None of the wonderful facilities described on the website were available; mainly catered for groups of people not single guests. Hotel was nearly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This 15th-Century Castle dates back to Mary, Queen of Scots, and is set in 35 acres of stunning parkland. Edinburgh city centre is 8 miles from Carberry Tower and the nearest train station is located at Wallyford, which is a 5 minute car journey away. Rooms at the magnificent Carberry Tower are elegant and luxurious, providing exceptional comfort and stunning views of your surroundings. With beds that you can melt into, luxury Egyptian cotton linen and toiletries by Asprey - it really is your very own Castle retreat! There are a variety of natural features, including rose garden, a lily pond, manicured grounds and you can often see free-roaming wildlife. The Tower still retains charming old staircases, fireplaces, and stained-glass windows. 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.
