The bustling city of Edinburgh is just a few minutes’ drive away from Melville Castle. 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?
Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, University of Edinburgh, Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat are all within a 20 minute drive from the hotel. Plus Murrayfield Stadium, the Edinburgh Playhouse and Edinburgh Airport are nearby.
‘Edinburgh’s most eagerly awaited reopening of 2021’ – Melville Castle combines Scottish grandeur with many original touches.
From intimate fairy-tale weddings and secret elopements to exclusive opulent banquets for 150, their team is on hand to orchestrate your special day. Enchanting ballrooms, manicured gardens, a contemporary marquee and luxury rooms connect together to create the perfect backdrop to any celebration.
Food is one of the most memorable elements of a wedding, so it’s important to get it right. You and your guests are in very safe hands at Melville Castle. From melt-in-the-mouth canapés and gourmet wedding breakfasts to tantalising and moreish midnight snacks there is something for everyone. Their food is made using the freshest local ingredients and can be tailored to reflect your taste.
Don’t let the party finish without some rest. The 33 bedrooms including nine suites are each individually styled with unique key features and Scottish artefacts. The two Bridal Suites bask in the history of the lovers Mary Queen of Scots and David Rizzio, and will ensure a memorable night for newly-wed couples. Fall asleep comfortably in the magnificent beds, dressed with the very best Egyptian cotton bedding to ensure the ultimate comfort. Let the party continue at breakfast and reminisce the memories forever forged the day before.
The Castle was rebuilt in the 18th century and was built as a stately home so they have beautiful large windows which brings in lots of natural light.
Our Marquee is a fixed structure which stays up all year round. We have proper bathrooms plus a bar and fitted kitchen in the back. The ceiling is adorned in fairy lights and boasts three chandeliers so is different to most people's vision of a standard marquee.
Our bedrooms have just been refurbished and all have a different theme relating to previous owners and the Midlothian and Edinburgh areas so no room is the same.
We start wedding ceremonies at 13:00 in the winter and 14:00 in the summer with guests arriving approximately an hour beforehand.
Yes you can as long as we do not have a wedding that has taken all the rooms the night before. We have a beautiful two bedroom suite which is perfect for hair and makeup to have their own space and breakfast can be delivered to the room.
