Verified Reviews of Melville Castle

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Tranquil Castle with History in the Countryside"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Group of 29 experienced travelers stayed for three days and found the rooms good to excellent. Food was good, wine prices moderate, and the receptionist and event manager was very friendly and helpful. Lovely surroundings as the place has a dramatic history. 10 minute walk through forest to public bus going directly in to town centre (bus ride takes some time though!) 30 minutes by car to airport. Understaffed after dinner! Difficult to find somebody in charge of reception or bar.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"When people provide customer friendly service in today’s world, it should be applauded! So many businesses have taken almost and adversarial attitude towards the customer, in other words, they over compensate for a consumer not following through. As a business, it is my understanding, that the business should always follow through and do as they promise! Loyalty between consumers and businesses should remain alive, profit above service is a bad plan and will cost the business in the long run!" R.F. - Denver, CO
