We've just returned from a fabulous overnight stay at the castle and i can't recommend it enough! The castle is in lovely grounds with deer and pheasant running around, you really feel like you're in the middle of no-where and not a stones throw from town. The castle itself is in lovely condition and traditionally decorated with open log fires,... More

I arrived early and was greeted by the smiling face of the receptionist who could not have been more helpful - she carried my luggage to my room and also made a few phone calls for me. A hot cup of tea and a chocolate and orange biscuit awaited me and was enjoyed while I read through the history of... More

Everything was fantastic. The staff and room and dinner and breakfast were first class. Absolutely faultless. Thanks for a terrific overnight stay. Seriously cannot wait to go back and I only live in Edinburgh!

The castle is a lovely traditional hotel of immense character, let down somewhat by attention to detail. Whilst the stay could have been excellent, the gilt was taken from our experience because of inadequate room preparation and a disappointing evening meal. Our first room had no valance on the bed so the floral base and legs were on display as... More

We booked a night in the Melville Castle for 21st December 2014, using a Groupon deal, then upgraded to the honeymoon suite at an extra cost as we had got married on 20th December. We were really looking forward to our stay. We were given a four poster bed suite on the ground floor and told breakfast will be served... More

What a beautiful place and the staff were amongst the friendliest I've met. The food was second to none. I couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate my big birthday . Would recommend Melville castle to anyone. Thanks again

Stunning location with that old style castle feel. Me and the wife chilled out in the bar playing one of their many board games away from our normal city nights out. Food was lovely, staff were more than helpful. We'll definately be back.

I bought a night here as a present for my Australian in-laws so they could experience a night in a castle. They loved it, came back raving about it and could not have hoped for more! The service was great.
