Ate here on a Friday evening. Needs better signed from reception to the bistro as we got a bit lost before we found someone who's directed us. It is however a lovely room. High ceiling, log fire, interesting artefacts. Service was good, only 2 other tables were in so slightly lacking in atmosphere. Cullen skink I'm reliably informed was very...

I took my husband here for a meal for his birthday. The service and food were first class and a lovely log fire was burning making it very comfortable as it was -1% outside. We both had three courses and each course was beautifully presented and tasted amazing..

We were pleased to book a royal suite at Carberry Tower for our Christmas Break. Ms. Finlayson was very helpful with our initial booking when we ran into a problem with the online booking system. After a long drive through stormy weather, it was wonderful to pull up to this country estate with a wood burning fire in the reception...

We were booked for afternoon tea which was delicious and had also booked an overnight stay. The journey up the main drive is stunning and the public rooms are very in keeping with the age of the property. The only thing I felt was out of place in the drawing room was the tv on the wall above the fireplace....

Booked champagne afternoon tea to have with my husband which was £50 for two. The usual 3 tier tray was brought to us. The sandwiches had been sitting out a while and were dried out the only scones available were cherry and coconut which I don't like and would think only suit a particular taste. There were no cakes only...

Stayed here out of convenience for a course. Arrived in the evening and checking in was delayed. No staff at the first desk, when finally managed to raise someone, was shown to my room. No mention of any services, the breakfast that was included within the rate. When later on requested a drink from the bar it was quite clear...

An absolutely fabulous meal tonight in the Carberry Tower CAMPAIGN ROOM BISTRO; we could not fault the meal and/ or service. We will certainly be returning, preferably in the daylight to see the grounds. Open daily – 10.30am till 9pm.

All arrangements for the wedding were made long distance from California. The property is beautiful and the staff is amazing. They got it BEYOND PERFECT! The wedding party and many of our guests stayed at "the Tower" for the whole weekend of the wedding and were treated like royalty. The staff gave us the full run of the place. I...

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
