The whole experience of staying at Carberry Tower was excellent. The staff were amazing, the room was outstanding and the standard of food was out of this world.

The level of attention from the waiting staff was wonderful. Their attention to detail was exceptional

Lovely building and grounds with some fantasticly lovely public rooms which were sadly, not used for our experience. There is a beautiful dining room all laid out with nice china and silverware which could have been used for our meal but wasn't, I have no idea why, perhaps the hotel would like to answer?

When I booked this deal, what attracted me was the idea of a 'Banquet experience'. We were with friends who had never visited Scotland before and I thought that this would be a very Scottish meal with a group of people chatting and getting to know one another over the canapes then being seated around a big table in maybe the manorial hall or the castle dining room, with a good atmosphere and ambience and maybe pipes or dancers afterwards. What we got, was canapes served to us and two other people in the bar area which can only be described as dingy, followed by being seated at a table on our own in another dingy room on the ground floor. We could have been in a wine bar. The food wasn't brilliant either, and at the end of our meal the waitress accidently dropped some cutlery and food from one of our plates which was still there the following morning at breakfast time. This was not a banquet! Our room was tiny on the top floor, nicely decorated and clean but no room for luggage.

Beautiful surroundings and a feeling of luxury. A special mention for Dennis - Irish/Scottish Friday night barman who successfully combined efficiency, professionalism and friendliness - not easy. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and most were efficient.

We had a basic room which was small but beautifully furnished. There was lovely bedding but the effect was spoiled by a dirty, creased and ill-fitting valance sheet. I did mention this to reception so hopefully it was rectified. We were to be served Prosecco and canapes at 7p.m. We arrived at 7 and were duly served drink but canapes did not arrive until 7.25 - just before we went in to dinner - not good. For dinner we asked for one rare beef and one very well done - both arrived as medium. My husbands was taken away to be cooked more (I just accepted mine) and hence we did not actually eat together. This was made worse by the inexperienced waitress - when I finished she asked my husband if he wanted to carry on. When he said "yes" she took away my plate!
