“Great Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were recently at a work colleagues wedding at the Carnbooth and it was a great day. The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive. The feeling was that you were at a restaurant receiving individual attention and not part of a huge wedding party. Prices at the bar were also reasonable and the surroundings are beatiful.

Attended a wedding early July and stayed overnight. The arrangements for the wedding were superb and nothing went wrong - quite the reverse. There were plenty of staff available and they were obviously all well trained . The grounds were lovely and guests could wander around. Would highly recommend this as a wedding venue.
The room for the overnight stay was great . Clean and comfortable . They were however a bit stingy , providing only one teabag each . The only disappointment was the breakfast where they ran out of sausages and black pudding and the bacon was hard . These however are minor points and did not diminish my enjoyment of the venue.

Just attended a really nice wedding at this hotel.
It was a service/reception and all of the formalities and reception thereafter were held in a marquee at the rear of the hotel.
Well laid out and service exceptional.
Staff all very pleasant and helpful.
Food for the wedding breakfast very good with ample portions.Choice of menu beforehand a bonus.Loads of nibbles for guests arriving for the evening.
Disco was good with sound levels at a level you could still hold a conversation with fellow guests.
Master of ceremonies very good.
Weather also made the day however if it had been raining/cold not sure how marquee would have fared,there is a small function room for very small parties. Perhaps long term owners might think of a permanent large function room to be erected,with the service etc would be a winner.
Lovely grounds for photographs.

What a shame that Carnbooth House Hotel has been criticised in such a way by a disgruntled member of the public. I'm sure if they had returned on a different occasion they would have been delighted by the service, food and ambience of this fine establishment.
Having booked lunch for 3 people we were immediately impressed by our surroundings and the classiness of the restaurant. Service was excellent and the waitress helpful and happy at her work! We chose the 3 course set menu which was small but perfect for our needs. Each dish was nicely presented, substantial and tasted wonderful.
Some people criticise without entering the place for one reason or another and most are not a reflection on the quality to be had at this hotel.
We will most certainly eat here again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your experience, good or bad we like to hear about peoples experiences.

We hold a number of weddings at the Hotel during the year and remain open to the public, on some occasions this limits access to certain areas of the property but not all.

The recent hot weather has certainly made the outside areas of the hotel more popular, with demand out stripping the supply of exterior furniture that we have.

Could I ask that you contact me on the email address below, so that I can investigate fully.

Recently stayed here for my fiancées birthday and took advantage of the Lazy Sunday deal, this included overnight stay in a suite breakfast dinner and a bottle of wine all for only £138!!!!!!!! We regularly Take advantage of Sunday deals at hotels like du vin and malmasion but this was by far the best Sunday deal and one of the nicest hotels iv been in. We have stayed in many 4* and 5* hotels in the uk and paid much more for less of everything. The room was beautiful, modern, lovely bath, comfy bed and setting area. The fixed menu was great not much choice but there's something for everyones taste. And then breaky amazing!!!!! Served in our room for free most Edinburgh hotels add £3.50 charge per person!! Great bonus. All the staff were friendly and helpful, we will be back.
