    Everything great. Only let down by the 60’s style imitation fireplace in the bar.

    Beyond Our Expectations

    Melville Castle was a great choice. We enjoyed the history of the castle and the fact that it was not in the city center, but close enough via cab to reach to explore the city. And if you just want a stay without any stress, the castle has extensive grounds to explore, a beautiful bar/library. What made the stay even better was the staff. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and attentive. They catered to every need you expressed. The food in the restaurant can't be faulted either, and especially their dessert. My family had a truly wonderful and memorable time at the castle.

    Beautiful building, a little tired in places. Lovely suite looking on to gardens. Great service and very good food. Room was quite cold and bathroom needs upgrading but enjoyable stay nonetheless
