A very quaint castle ( boutique type hotel ) only 15 mins from Edinburgh and set in beautiful grounds. The history of this establishment goes back to Mary Queen of Scots who was detained here and all the rooms are named after various personalities of the time. Inside the public rooms, library and lounges are exquisite and furnished accordingly.
Bedrooms on the East side look over lawns but they are very small and tight to manoeuvre, the basin in the bathroom was a hand wash not a traditional sink. No curtains only wooden louvres that restricted air flow and the room was very warm and un-comfortable.
Breakfast was included in the B&B deal but was not up to much. No fruit at all and a very meagre sprinkling of cereals etc. Orders were taken for hot breakfasts and while offering a great traditional
Selection service was very slow.
Dinner was based upon a set menu only at £45 per head and we declined.
A great experience but they need to re-look the basics.
- 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
