Formerly the hunting seat of Mary Queen of Scots, Melville Castle is now a regal hotel offering princely hospitality on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

The Package
An overnight stay is £99, and you can choose between Monday and Thursday (up to a £199 value), or Friday (up to a £179 value), Both packages include a full Scottish breakfast, afternoon tea, and a bottle of wine if choosing to dine; guests staying from Monday to Thursday will also receive a late 1 p.m. checkout.

The Best Bits
• A splendid exterior and acres of gardens.
• A short distance from Edinburgh city centre.

The Property
A grand 18th century country house rather than castle, Melville is a testament to the refined tastes of its architect, William Playfair—as well the interior design nous of the Hay family, its current custodians. There are fifty acres of estate to roam, three lavish public areas to relax in, and your classic room comes complete with Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and elegant styling.

The Food and Drink
Included with your stay is not just a full Scottish breakfast, but also a sumptuous afternoon tea. If you choose to dine on three courses each in the hotel's Brasserie, which serves seasonal Scottish cuisine with a contemporary twist, you'll enjoy a bottle of wine to accompany the cuisine.

The Location
Located on the edge of Edinburgh, it's an easy trip into the historic city to take in all the culture, dining, and nightlife that the Scottish capital has to offer. If you'd prefer something a little wilder, the nearby Pentland Hills Regional Park is a perfectly untouched region to roam when the sun is shining.

The Need to Know
• This Escape is for two people.
• Superior rooms are available for a £20 supplement.
• One child under 5 years stays free of charge when using existing beds.

  • "Edinburgh is one of Europe's most beautiful cities, draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea."
