What’s Included

Overnight stay in romantic castle

Afternoon tea or lunch included

Convenient for Edinburgh

Available 7 days a week

Go back a few hundred years and the site of the current Melville Castle was once the hunting seat of Mary Queen of Scots.

Since then, the castle has hosted distinguished guests such as Queen Victoria and Sir Walter Scott.

Today, you don’t need to be a monarch or have a title to be treated like royalty at Melville Castle.

This Big Deal on an overnight stay is the perfect introduction to this romantic hotel.

Located in extensive parkland grounds, yet just twenty minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, Melville Castle combines the elegant period features of its long and illustrious heritage with contemporary comforts and service.

Classic room

Available seven days a week, this splendid offer is for two people to stay overnight in a classic double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast and your choice of a two course lunch or afternoon tea.

Late check out to noon means that you won’t need to rush your morning.

Classically furnished and individually decorated, the rooms feature complimentary Internet access, crisp linen sheets; fluffy white towels; enchanting views of the surrounding woodland and decadent Gilchrist and Soames toiletries.

Seasonal Scottish cuisine

As we mentioned, in addition to a full cooked breakfast in the morning, guests can choose between afternoon tea and a two course lunch in the hotel’s Brasserie Restaurant and Cellar Bar.

The Head Chef at Melville Castle serves seasonal, modern Scottish Cuisine with a strong focus on high quality, locally sourced ingredients.

The menus change regularly but typical starters include the gravadlax of Wester Ross salmon with pickled cucumber, lemon, wholemeal bread and dill mayo while popular main courses include the roasted breast of duck, with dauphinois potatoes, butternut squash, curly kale and a Grand Marnier sauce.

Bottle of wine

If both guests have a three course dinner in the hotel then the Brasserie will include a complimentary bottle of house wine.

Happy guests

Melville Castle has been wowing visitors for over 200 years. This is what a recent, extremely enthusiastic guest thought of the venue on TripAdvisor:

‘A magnificent place to stay…As soon as we turned onto the approach to the castle, we were magically transformed into another era, another lifetime, and a fairy tale that we will not soon forget. Our room was gorgeous, the views from our windows looked out onto forests and two grazing horses, the people behind the desk were lovely, and it was just an overall wonderful experience for us. We will definitely return!’

If you are looking for a romantic autumn getaway then booking a room in a castle is a very good place to start.

Take up today’s Big Deal and enjoy a night at Melville Castle with someone special.
