Travel Zoo voucher for what was a disastrous stay and Dining Experience Thursday 28 Nov.
Excluded from the 1st floor lounges, library and music room due to private party. We were not advised of this in advance and due to the ground floor bar and lounge being cold without heating, we were confined to our room for the afternoon.
The so called "dining experience" consisted of a half glass of proseco, 2 mini canapés, and the meal consisted of a miniature jug of lentil soup, a disappointing choice of two for both the starter, main and sweet courses, neither of which were adventurous, exciting or memorable. The dining room was large and cold and we were the only two diners served by the only barman on duty.
Having travelled some 100 miles for what was to be our pre-Christmas treat this experience was one we wish could have avoided.
This place is now the *OW factor having lost it's initial W.
All our concerns were discussed with the duty manager but she could offer little in return.
If anyone else has the misfortune to be visiting Carberry "Fawlty" Tower for this dining experience, I suggest you try for a cancellation or refund.
- 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
