I have been coming to Carberry now since 2012 since Clarenco first took over and started doing up this amazing building. My second last time there we were put in a room that had a leak coming through the ceiling, I did of course alert the staff but there appeared not to be an alternative room. I shifted our suitcase...

We stayed in Carberry Tower for three nights in June 2016. The building, location and grounds are impressive with a beautiful long driveway leading up to the hotel. The room itself was fine but would have benefited from some TLC. There were cracks all over the bathroom floor, an odd tea-like stain on the valance of the bed, a window... More

Stayed for one night only but could happily have stayed longer. The hotel looks very impressive as you approach it along an avenue of lime trees. Inside there are plenty of period features to provide the feel of a country house, supplemented by a few modern touches that were quirky or out-of-place, depending on your perspective. Our room wasn’t massive,... More

It is such a shame to leave negative feedback on this lovely hotel however i have to say that the service of all the staff was pretty poor. The hotel itself is lovely although fairly tired and is set in beautiful gardens, upon driving up to the hotel and looking forward to staying in the suite my impression soon lowered... More

Went there for high tea which was really good. The House and estate was stunning. Niki our waitress was very friendly and gave us some information about the house. The grounds are great to a stroll through. We had a chance to look at some of the suites with four poster beds. The room that we had our high tea... More

Dinner and overnight stay at Carberry Tower was fun. The food was very good. The staff went out of their way to make sure our every need was taken care of. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The views from the rooms were excellent. The grounds are very well maintained.

We stayed here for our Edinburgh visit, it is a few miles away but fabulous if you have a car. The grounds are great and the room although small was perfect, we were told to ring direct next time for a better rate on a suite. We had a wander around the mansion and it is beautiful, well worth a... More

Spent two nights at this lovely hotel. The rooms are spotlessly clean with extremely comfortable beds. All of the staff members that we came into contact with were both friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the Manager and reception staff who made our stay so very special. Can't wait to return.

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
