I stayed in this hotel whilst on business in Scotland in October. I must say that I was particularly underwhelmed by the whole package from start to finish. The girl who checked me in at the start I found to be rude and not very attentive nor bothered about creating a good impression. The room was tired and dated. The... More

So much potential, but lacking staff and theatrical rooms to match the grandeur of the castle/manor house, we spent two nights here for our honeymoon. The receptionist was lovely warm welcoming everything you would ask for as meet and greet, the waiter was abominable, We pre booked our evening meal and confirmed this on arrival all was good. When we... More

Lovely Castle Hotel, with large comfortable rooms and really lovely staff!! The Castle is set in beautiful gardens, it was very quiet and romantic. We caught the bus to Edinburgh to avoid the traffic and parking hassles, it only took about 25mins to downtown. Really lovely place to spend the weekend and get away from it all.

Spent one night at Melville Castle on a £99 dinner, B&B deal and was pleasantly surprised! Food in the brasserie was first class as was the service, and despite previous reports, was not 'dungeon like' at all, just a very authentic atmosphere. Our room (room 12) was very cold on first entering and after a visit from the maintenance people,... More

Booked a last minute night at Melville Castle Hotel and we were surprised at what we got for £89! (A premier Inn in Edinburgh would have been more expensive!) The hotel is set in lovely grounds and our room was amazing - very comfortable, with large sitting area. Although info said that wifi was available in the bedrooms the signal... More

Just back from a very enjoyable stay at Melville Castle Hotel. The hotel & grounds provided a very peaceful environment for a relaxing break. There weren't as much grounds to walk in as we thought but pleasant enough none the less. The food in the Brasserie was brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal there, it was fabulous. Many compliments to... More
