I bought a groupon voucher for this hotel which included afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast and what a treat. I would definitely go back and pay full price. The hotel was fabulous. The food was superb and the staff were all really friendly and attentive. 10 minute drive from the centre of Edinburgh so it's in a great location to... More

Sister's civil partnership. Fantastic venue. Modern comforts like ensuite bathroom with power shower but respecting the layout and heritage of the venue. Really special place and perfect if you want a feel of a traditional ancient Scottish castle mixed with a modern feel to it. Gardens are elegant with a lot of extensive grounds to walk around in and explore... More

The boyfriend took me away for a romantic getaway, only 40 minutes from Edinburgh, yet in splendid isolation with fabulous views over rolling country side. Everything was just spot on. From the value for money direct booking of our Dinner/Bed and Breakfast rate, the upgrade to a classic room free of charge, the friendly welcome and early check-in to the... More

Carberry Tower is a beautifully restored castle with fantastic, historic spaces and glorious rooms. The original keep houses the entrance hall, the bar and the "Boar Hall". But the castle is littered with iconic spaces and you are sure to find a cosy corner to suit your mood. We had afternoon tea which was fabulous and served to us at... More

We stayed at Carberry Tower about 3 years ago, just as the renovations were being finished. It left a lasting good impression then so we jumped at the Secret Escapes package and persuaded our Edinburgh friends to join us for a two night stay with a dinner and an afternoon tea. The first floor library and sitting rooms are as... More

Just back from an overnight stay here for my hubby's birthday. I had heard they were offering a good deal through groupon but I couldn't find it. When I called the venue directly they were happy to match the groupon price. From the minute I called up to book I was very impressed with the service. Every member of staff... More
