Welcome to Melville Castle

Hotel, Brasserie & Events Venue 

The bustling city of Edinburgh is just a few minutes’ drive away. Explore the heady delights of the city, then wind your way along the tree-lined drive to the castle’s private 54 acre estate to bed down beneath the turrets. Where better to stay when visiting Edinburgh than in a castle?

Reopening on 6th August 2021 after an extensive refurbishment...

Melville Castle combines Scottish grandeur with many original touches. Stay a while and take time to explore some of the curiosities. Each of the castle's 33 bedrooms and suites are unique - many have four poster beds. Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, University of Edinburgh, Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat are all within five miles of the hotel. Plus Murrayfield Stadium, the Edinburgh Playhouse and Edinburgh Airport are nearby.
