“A Charming Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

We received a warm and hearty welcome from one of the friendliest receptionists I have come across during many travels! Thank you. The adjacent Carberry Tower castle was just amazing and we felt very welcome when we enjoyed a drink there.

Although the room with its en-suite was small, it was cosy and comfortable. The scenic location is amazing! I will definitely stay there again: it was so charming and excellent value for the money we paid.

Stayed here for 1 Night when i was in Edinburgh and it was a really nice place. the rooms were cosy, clean and warm... the only downside was the bath.. it was rather small but managable.. you would need to have a car to get to this place as its a good 20 minute drive from the city centre. would love to stay there if i visited edinburgh on car..

Nice location,clean rooms but there would appear to be inadequate insulation between rooms above and to the side our our room no 4.
Able to listen clearly to conversations,arguments and bodily function noises from adjacent rooms?Attempted to order a pizza for a very hungry 5 year old and was advised that the wedding party had exclusive use of the kitchen and that I couldn't have a Pizza.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!!

Followed the signs for Edinburgh Lodges, arrived alone at this secluded location to find the door marked "Reception" locked and NO information about how to check in. Nothing on my booking confirmation either. Fortunately another guest came out and told me there is a large hotel further on so bundled the luggage back in the car and received a rather frosty welcome along with my key. Sadly the quiet night I was expecting was marred by a large party of kids making a horrendous din underneath me up until 11.pm! These annexes are not staffed - there are no phones, my mobile was on charge and the number of the main hotel was in my car - so I put up with it - even though I had to be away by 6 am the next day!!

Such a pity. The room was small but clean and modern and would have provided (I thought) a nice restful environment. Ah well - it was cheap enough - and I should have read the trip adviser reviews first about the lack of signage!!

Room Tip: Make sure you drive to the Carberry hotel to check in - and take ear plugs!

Stayed here for one night whilst we we in Musselburgh for a wedding. Room small but clean and had all amenities required including tea making fascilities, hairdryer, toiletries, iron etc. Warm welcome in the main hotel however a bit confusing as to where to check in initially as not well sign posted. These lodges would have scored better if it were not for the fire alarm going off both days we were there! On both occassions it seemed to go on forever with no one investigating the alarm or letting guests know what was happening!! My husband couldnt hear the alarm on the second occasion as he was in the shower!! A bit concerning if it were not for me going back to the room to let him know it had been going off for 5 mins!!

The room walls are not well insulated so you can hear people talking in the next room and we were right next to an automatic door in the corridor which we heard all night so ear plugs were required. Overall you get what you pay for and good value for a cheap overnight stay.

The hotel is part of the Carberry Tower historic estate in East Lothian. This is a country hotel and it has an amazing tree-lined drive up to the buildings. The reception area is in the main building and it looks very impressive indeed. The lodges themselves are annexes a short walk from the tower. I arrived quite late one Friday evening for a one-night stay and received a warm welcome at reception.

I was allocated a ground floor room in one of the lodges. The room was fairly compact but well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed, tea and coffee facility and shower room. The room was immaculately clean and I enjoyed a quiet night's sleep.

The location of the hotel is quite special, not far from the site where Mary Queen of Scots surrendered in 1567 after a stand-off on Carberry Hill.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for those looking for a country break or visits to Edinburgh. Probably not so good for those without a car or other form of transport.

Overall, I thought the hotel was excellent value especially for this amazing location. Staff were friendly, professional and made me feel very welcome after a long drive.
