        What's not to like, Premier Inn costs £100, this costs £125, an absolute bargain, could have stayed for weeks, shame it was only for one night!

        Couldn't stay for longer!

        I was visiting Edinburgh for work but with my family and we wanted somewhere nice to retreat to after a busy day of work / tourism. We had the car, which I would say is fairly important if you want to go into edinburgh regularly, but what an amazing place. Beautiful, comfortable and cozy, not the least bit stuffy, and to be honest, I could have spent the three days just in "my castle" and been perfectly happy. I would definately recommend this place, especially for a relaxing or romantic weekend, it is fine for work, if you are happy to commute a bit too. Food is great and reasonably priced.

        This is really not an issue, but I am a sucker for a pool or spa, and that currently isn't an option, but given the size and space of the grounds, who knows it could be added. It is the only thing missing in this 5 star place.

        Anytime we had a query, the staff responded positiveley

        It was the same menu every night. We had to eat out, rather than in the luxury of our own hotel. The chef seemed to have very limited skills.

        Carberry Tower Castle is a gem of a hotel. Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the rooms are comfortable, immaculate and huge! Although we only booked a double room, we were upgraded to a suite which had a large en-suite and walk in wardrobe. Only 7 miles from Edinburgh, this hotel is perfect if you want to visit the city then retreat to peace and tranquility. The travel links are good and the reception staff organised us a very good deal with a local taxi company. Superb old place!

        The staff were very welcoming but lacked direction. They were very young and, at times, a little inappropriate. With decent management in place, the hotel would be perfect!

        Beautiful surroundings. The rose garden is a lovely place to sit out and enjoy a drink on a warm evening. Lots of lovely rooms to sit and enjoy the view over the mature grounds. Definitely worth taking the time to have a stroll around the hotel and gardens. The staff are friendly and helpful.

        The Carberry has very helpful and friendly staff who take the time to make you very welcome and also make your stay very pleasurable. The food was excellent. The room was very good and the facilities were excellent. Will be returning very soon.

        This is a lovely country house hotel with very friendly staff. The hotel has a beautiful library and stunning 35 acre grounds. We booked a superior room and stayed in the Princess Margaret suite, which was huge with an excellent, well proportioned and recently refurbished bathroom. Our room boasted superb sound proofing, so we had an great night's sleep. Although the hotel was holding two conferences on the night of our stay, we were able to enjoy a quiet drink in the cosy bar followed by a delicious supper in the adjoining lounge. Breakfast was super. This hotel is in an ideal location for visiting Edinburgh. Wallyford station is a five-minute drive away and offers free parking and hourly trains to the centre of Edinburgh for less than £4 return.

        The location ,the elegance,the welcome,facilities ,food and staff were all excellent.

        The lift was an bit of a nightmare with a wheelchair but we managed and understood why so difficult in a listed building.

        Everything. The staff, atmosphere, room and service were all fantastic. The only disappointment was not being able to have an evening meal as there was a wedding on.

        Didn't not like anything.

        Carberry Tower had a very relaxing atmosphere.

        The renovation is ongoing although not too intrusive.

        A small problem re the room we had booked which was well-explained and a suitable adjustment made to our bill. The place was fantastic and will be even better when decorating is complete. The ambience was excellent and Douglas and staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful.

        Due to decorating, a strong smell of paint was a niggle. Also, the radiators were set at a very high temperature and we had no idea how to turn them off or down.

        Visited the carberry Tower as a business trip, To my surprise the Hotel/Old castle style home was beautifull and is currently being upgraded and 15 of the 30 bedrooms have already been refurbished. It is an Ideal place for a romantic couple or for wedding. The staff where very friendly and proffesional.

        The only critisism would be that the room did not have a tv in it, and if I was a single traveller as this hotel is within 35 acres there is not much to do on ones own. If I could recommend they have flat screen TV's in each room. As I had to go to the library/lounge area to watch tv.
