Last weekend ( Friday 22nd & Saturday 23rd August) it was our greatest pleasure to attend the wedding of our son and his beautiful bride at Carberry Tower. Having read some scathing reviews about this venue and it's staff, I was a little apprehensive, but I need not have worried. From the start everything was taken care off by Douglas... More

A beautiful hotel that we stayed in a year ago to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. As this was the year of our 50th and we wished to attend the Edinburgh festival we again booked. This time we found when we arrived we had been upgraded to the Royal suite to mark our Golden occasion. This was truly royal as... More

We had our wedding at Carberry on the 13th June and it was absolutely fantastic. The only issues that we had (which I can assume has been addressed now) was that all the preparation for the months leading up to the event were a nightmare. It was only due to communication. I think the event staff were extremely stretched and... More

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 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

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.
