Close to Edinburgh

Melville Castle could claim to be by royal appointment, having hosted both Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Victoria over the centuries.

These days it’s a luxurious country house hotel, handy for the capital, and the perfect spot for today’s Big Deal – a one or two night stay with added perks.

Tranquil setting

  • Although it is just 20 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, Melville Castle provides a peaceful and relaxed setting in parkland grounds.
  • The hotel, rebuilt in the Georgian era as a grand, gothic Playfair-designed country house, combines period atmosphere with contemporary comfort, making it the perfect choice for a stylish escape, or romantic break.
  • Available seven days, the Big Deal option one offers an overnight stay for two in a classic double or twin room, with continental or full Scottish breakfast.
  • Option two offers a two night stay for two in a classic double or twin room, with continental or full Scottish breakfast each morning and afternoon tea on the day of check-in.
  • Option three is for a two night stay for two in a classic double or twin room, with breakfast each morning and a £50 dinner voucher to spend on the first evening.
  • All options include stays in pet friendly rooms, so you can bring along one pet free of charge.
  • Classic rooms at Melville Castle offer sumptuous traditional décor, graceful furnishings and period details, alongside all the modern touches of a fine hotel.

Refined dining

  • Option three includes a £50 dinner spend. Guests will dine in the splendour of the Brasserie, located in an atmospheric cellar, with the vaulted ceiling and stone walls complementing the romantic ambience created by candlelight and an open fire.
  • The menu offers a range of seasonal specialities, with typical dishes including chicken breast with crispy polenta, sweetcorn, kale, chorizo and white wine sauce, or the butternut squash pappardelle pasta.

Impressed guests

  • Melville Castle has picked up numerous accolades over the years. Queen Victoria’s TripAdvisor review is unavailable, but these are some more recent comments:

‘The castle looks phenomenal on the drive up, the staff are superb, food is good, and that, coupled with a great night’s sleep, made it a perfect stop over.’

‘We had a wonderful time here and hope to return soon, historical and interesting venue, worth the price, romantic destination for couples of any age.’

‘The lobby area is lovely with a crackling fireplace, beautiful chandelier and mandatory impressive staircase. We stayed in a gorgeous room on the top floor and it was perfect.’

Excellent Christmas gift!!!

It’s a unique beautiful place where I normally wouldn’t be able to afford, so it’s too good of a deal to not take up plus the added bonus of being able to take my dog with us means a lot.
