I attended a friends wedding here and loved the day. The facilities were amazing and everything was well placed for the complete wedding package. Staff were brilliant, every one of them were very happy and keen to achieve the best in service. No less should be offered and they were all up to the task and they helped make the event an event, not just a special day. They tirelessly gave their all and it was very much appreciated by all the guests that I spoke to.
The only real let down was the cost of the drinks, £7.50 for a Jack Daniels and Coke. This was the only bad part of a great day. I don't mind paying a little over the odds for a beautiful venue with the environment and amazing staff, what I do object to is the over pricing of drinks due to the greed of the owners. Never have I been charged this for a Jd and coke and look at this £9 for a glass of wine. I was almost sick at paying this for a drink at a friends wedding, it is abhorrent.
The hotel and the staff are amazing with all other aspects of the entire day faultless. But the cost of the drinks totally detracted from the day and it was the thing that we some about the next day and not the wonderful day that we should have been talking about.
A wedding should be all about the day and everything associated with the bride, groom and the marriage, not the anger of the guests at the prices at the bar, unfortunately this will be my memory of my friends special day, bittered by the exorbitant pricing, which it didn't have to be.

Room Tip: Get one of the larger rooms, as the smaller ones are tiny. Double? Really more like large single.

Amazing venue, the real experience from reception to bedtime. We had the the best reception friendliest greeting in a long time, and we are well travelled.
From the magnificent driveway, tree lined entrance, you feel like royalty,even the recommended taxi firm R &J's comment and say they love the drive, the comments they get when arriving with new guests in awe of how spectacular it is, and when we had been out at night, the drive was lit up coming back to Carberry Tower.

It was a treat for my husbands birthday so we pushed the boat out, when I looked this hotel up,it gave an opulent feel with grandeur so I surprised my husband when booking, as he is a secret 'downton abbey fan' and this is as beautiful.
The history in this building is real, this shows with the extensive library where we relaxed and browsed a couple of books, the pictures on the walls show how the building once was and is very interesting.
This is a beautiful setting, and easy to get around, the rooms seem to glide in to each other, and the staff are happy for you to ask anything about the building.
We had the dining experience which we loved, the food was good, the delivery was personal.
We had a full Scottish breakfast, for the whole experience but there was plenty of fruit and cereals if you wanted.
We walked around the charming grounds, through the lovely rose garden onto the lawn, and further down beyond the lawn is a rustic haven of wildlife, including pheasants, then late afternoon the rabbits run across the lawn playfully, we watched this whilst having our evening meal from the first floor restaurant.
Think I left the best till last, the bedroom 'we had the royal suite' OMG, fabulous, the bed was so comfortable, we sank into it, the pillows soft and fluffy! It was lovely, the bathroom was warm, with the towels soft and warm for when my husband got out of the shower, I had a bath with the luxury bath/shower products and didn't want to get out!. The room was spacious for us, with TV and nice sofa to relax on. The furniture was very beautiful, very tastefully decorated. I was a bit cheeky and asked if we could take a look at some of the other rooms on our floor so when we go again if we have to have another room at least we know what they are for real! Internet is good but real is real, if that makes sense, they were of the same good standard and decor was lovely, can't wait to go back, a real gem of a find. as I say we had a real good walk around and proper nosey, loved it, sorry if I bored you, but can't say how much we enjoyed the stay, still raving now we are home. So fab staff, fab bedrooms, fab food. Yes it was amazing!

Room Tip: Royal suite was very good room 208, but if you want a separate lounge from the bedroom choose another room, can't remember the names but on the first floor, this is useful if you get up before your partner.

If you are looking for that perfect venue, then this is just that!!. We had been looking for some time to find our perfect wedding venue and Carberry did not let us down. Nothing was too much for all of the staff, so friendly and the food was just perfect. All of our friends commented on what a wonderful day they all head and this was very much down how, well organised and helpful Stacey and her team were. Good job Carberry you made a special day very special.

We went to view as a wedding venue. Stacey who showed us around was rude and abrupt and not very open to any of our ideas. She then said she would email us prices the next day...a month on we are still waiting! Even though I emailed to ask what was going on. A young couple written off as soon as we got in,clearly because they thought we couldn't afford it. Lucky we have now found a place,were the people seem to care!

Thank you for your comments which I have taken on board and have addressed in a constructive manner. Disappointingly that there was no communication from your initial showround and please be assured that we are happy to show all couples around our amazing venue with a view to them booking our wedding with us. I can only sincerely apologise you didn't receive the service and courtesy that is consistently delivered at Carberry. I hope you have a wonderful wedding day and best wishes for your future together.
