We attended the wedding of a friend on Saturday 20th June. Carberry tower is a gorgeous venue but I feel a wee bit let down to be honest as a hotel guest. Firstly we had booked a family room so I didn't think it was unreasonable to expect at least a fold out bed for our daughter. What we actually... More

First the good. After all the problems, the hotel comped the whole night and breakfast. The problems were with one of two rooms we had booked. Both were in the annex, not the castle proper (other people have loved the castle so this review applies only to the two outbuildings). One room was okay, small but clean, nothing special. The...

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
