The bathroom was so big it had a gigantic tub, separate shower, three sinks, and TWO toilets plus bidet. Super comfortable four poster. We really enjoyed all the fun...

I don't usually write reviews but felt that our visit last weekend for Sunday lunch was exceptional and definitely merited 5-stars. Every staff member we met was extremely polite and helpful and answered all our questions about the hotel. The 3 course lunch was delicious and exploring the restaurant, library, music room and sitting room was like stepping back in...

Located not far from downtown Edinburgh, this ancient castle was the prototypical castle experience. Steeped in history with lovely grounds; it was an ideal setting for a corporate retreat.

This place is a real Scottish gem. Easy access to Edinburgh and some excellent local golf courses. However the 2 things that make Carberry Tower amazing are the place itself and the fantastic staff.

This delightful hotel is tucked away out of Edinborough but close enough to get a taxi (R&J's) and at a cost of £25 20 minutes later you will be in the city centre. The staff are truly delightful, nothing is too much trouble for them in this old building which goes back to the days of Mary Queen of Scots....

I visited Carberry Tower in July as part of a wedding party, a lovely location and an outstanding property. I did get the impression that the hotel was being run on a shoestring, the staff were friendly but somewhat down on numbers also the formal garden where guests gathered could have benefitted from a visit by the gardener.

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
