Don't be fooled by the lure of an authentic stay in a historical character building; we were cramped into the tiniest attic room where we virtually had no room to move let alone put our small cases. The ceilings sloped which didn't help and the bathroom exceptionally tiny. This, the expensive dinner menu and the stale smell of the room... More

Attended for family wedding and had exclusive use of venue for weekend. From the start of booking venue for wedding to all the in between bits of organising and the Big day, the Staff and Amy, events coordinator, were fantastic. The day went exceptionally well, from the wedding vows held in the chapel to the dancing at night. Food was... More

We arrived here with low expectations as we got the hotel at the same price as normal standard hotels. How mistaken we were! Simply stunning and the attebtuon to detail was brilliant. I have recommended to everyone looking for a break. Just a great experience throughout!

I can't fault this hotel one bit, it's set in beautiful grounds is dripping in history and the staff are very friendly. I was kindly upgraded to a suite and it was lovely (nicer than my honeymoon suite) it's just a shame I was only there one night. I didn't eat in the restaurant but I did have breakfast and... More

Oh I was told I could go to the 2* Premier Inn down the road. Unfortunately the lift was never repaired our whole visit was ruined as my disabled friend was... More

I really enjoyed my visit to Carbery Tower, the room was lovely, the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. I hope to return another time. The only thing that marred my visit was an aggressive exchange between a bar man and a guest. The bar man did not behave in an appropriate way, unprofessional and aggressively rude.... More

I booked this hotel as I was working locally. It was easy to find and there was ample free parking. The check in was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and of a good size. As I arrived late I did not have an evening meal but used the bar and all of the staff were friendly. Breakfast was... More

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...

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
