This place is fantastic. The staff is great and the bar and food incredible. We ate crab cakes and duck. The estates grounds are peaceful and a great place to unwind. Our room was large and very nice and clean.

I was rereading some of my reviews and was reading down other comments. I was horrified by some - I no longer need my bed turned down, and I am OK for slippers and a robe, thank you! Another response is unfairly critical of reception staff, we thought them lovely, but then we're lovely guests!! Anyway on one of the... More

The building originates from 1480, but with several additions during the ages. It reminded us of Downtown Abby. It is situated near Musselburgh, which itself is no more than 15 miles from Edinburgh. A "Park & Ride" train station is available five minutes away at Wallyford and the trip to Princes St. in Edinburgh takes about 15 minutes for about... More

Well, what can I say about this wonderful and mystic hotel, steeped in history in order to do it full justice? Food, rooms, staff, location just fantastic. The suites are beautifully decorated sensitively furnished. Huge spaces to relax and unwind. So comfortable and tranquil. The setting is breathtaking. This one is a must do.

I was working at EDI airport so looked for somewhere out of the hustle and bustle (Carberry is 18miles away)...could not have been more impressed.The history of the castle with its Royal visitors is blended well with its stories of myriad ghosts.From the moment you arrive all the staff are GENUINELY friendly and could not do more for you.When I...

We've come from Brazil to spend our honeymoon in Scotland and other European countries. By far this was the best part of our trip. When we said we were honeymooners they upgraded us - as a courtesy - to the most beautiful room ever. All the staff were all so courteous and nice and made as feel very welcome. The... More

We loved this hotel. It's quirky, historic, comfortable, beautiful. The staff couldn't not be more welcoming and helpful. The food is very good (but not excellent). With plenty of different lounges to sit in and extensive grounds to enjoy the hotel is the perfect place to relax after a day sightseeing in Edinburgh. We will be back!

What a wonderful anniversary stay. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a castle stay. The history of this place is amazing! The food was quite good although limited menu and a bit pricey.

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
