Set in beautiful grounds this is a very grand looking hotel. There are lovely public rooms to relax in or wander around the gardens and forest. Lunch was excellent and the service was very friendly. Nicely appointed rooms with flat screen TV and free wifi.

We arrived two days early for a wedding, and stayed one night after. At the time of booking we talked with a wonderful young lady by phone, who even offered to have sandwiches available for us as we would be arriving on an international flight and the dining room would be closed by the time we got to the castle....

We stayed at The Melville Castle for my husbands 60th. Everything about our stay from the time we arrived till the time we left was fabulous. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Both the rooms we had booked were spotlessly clean and the food was excellent. Would definitely go back and would certainly recommend to friends.

We were on an overnight stay through 5pm.com. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely. We had lunch included in the deal which was very nice. The male member of staff who served us was very friendly and very efficient. The room we were allocated was very nice. We would certainly return in the future.

From the terse front desk agent, who finally tore herself away from a conversation with two other workers, to the unplugged wifi router and mini fridge, it was all disappointment during our one night at the Melville Castle. My daughter and I had one bath towel, the room had not been vacuumed in days if not weeks, and the last... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant Friday night stay and were particularly impressed with the quality of the dinner that was included in our package. Our room was a nice surprise as the bed was actually on mezzanine level, taking full advantage of the ceiling heights. I'm usually a terrible sleeper when away from home but the hotel was very peaceful... More

First night of honeymoon . On arrival a woman at reception greeted us with. "Your groupon voucher is invalid" it was supposed to be a surprise for my husband, he now knows it was a groupon voucher. How embarrassing. They could have at least contacted us prior to arrival after all they took the booking and reservation. How awful. Paid... More
