    Had a great stay at Melville Castle. The rooms were good and the food was superb. Everyone was very helpful and genuine. While is was outside of Edinburgh, it was not a bad drive to get to the Royal Mile, etc.

    I am sorry but you will need to direct your question direct to the hotel. All I can say is it is a lovely setting and if chosen for your wedding then I don't think you would be disappointed.
