What’s Included

Spectacular afternoon tea for 2

Glass of Prosecco

Beautiful castle hotel

Great grounds for a spring stroll

Back in the 16th century, Mary Queen of Scots is said to have courted the doomed David Rizzio at Melville Castle, just outside of Edinburgh.

The alleged affair was the talk of Scottish high society and led to the grisly downfall of Rizzio.

Plot your own gripping gossip with today’s Big Deal on a majestic afternoon tea for two at Melville Castle hotel.

Parkland setting

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.

Great views

Available 2.30pm-5pm, Monday to Friday and on Sundays, afternoon tea at Melville Castle is a sophisticated affair.

Afternoon tea 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.

As well as afternoon tea for two, this offer includes a chilled glass of Prosecco for each guest – always a good way to inspire the gossip.

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.

Happy guests

Melville Castle has been wowing visitors for centuries. This is what a couple of more recent guests thought of their time at the venue:

‘Beautiful hotel. A place (where) dreams come true. Melville Castle is a beautiful hotel. Unbelievable surroundings, peaceful and stunning yet only a short trip to the city centre. The castle is superb, very grand but homely and comfortable.’

‘Gorgeous setting in a lovely location. Gorgeous castle in lovely surrounds, Very grand entrance and many original features still on display, very quiet you would easily forget that your close to Edinburgh and motorways. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.’

A walk in the parkland grounds; a splendid afternoon tea and fizz. This Big Deal would be perfect for spoiling a family member or treating a friend.
