Both Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Victoria have been guests at Melville Castle, just outside of Edinburgh.
Feel free to wear a crown if you must but blue blood is not a requirement when it comes to enjoying today’s Big Deal on a majestic afternoon tea for two at Melville Castle Hotel.
With vouchers valid until the end of March 2016, this offer would make a lovely afternoon out and could also be used as a rather regal Christmas present.
Set in extensive parkland grounds – ideal for a stroll in the spring sunshine – and located just 20 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, Melville Castle combines the elegant period features of its long and illustrious heritage with contemporary comforts and service.
Available 2.30pm-5pm, Monday to Friday and on Sundays, afternoon tea at Melville Castle is a sophisticated affair which is served in several locations in the castle.
We suggest you take tea in the Library Bar or one of its anterooms. Featuring stunning high ceilings, it also has lovely views across the lawns and fountain.
This offer has two options.
Option one is for two people to have afternoon tea with a glass of sparkling wine each – always a good way to inspire the gossip.
Option two is for afternoon tea for two.
In addition to a selection of fine teas or coffee, afternoon tea comprises excellent finger sandwiches, plump scones with cream and jam and a mouth-watering selection of seasonal cakes and pastries.
Melville Castle has been wowing visitors for centuries. These comments were taken from TripAdvisor reviews by recent visitors:

Snap up this offer and enjoy an elegant afternoon in the old stamping ground of Mary Queen of Scots.
A walk in the parkland grounds; a splendid afternoon tea and the option of a glass of fizz. This Big Deal would be perfect for spoiling a family member or treating a friend.
It could also be used as a charming Christmas present. The promise of afternoon tea in a castle is always a welcome surprise on Christmas morning.
