Nothing beats the roar of the crowd and camaraderie of match day. Celtic Park – home to Celtic Football Club – is in Parkhead, east of Glasgow city centre. The area buzzes when Celtic are at home or when the Scottish international team are playing. The streets around the stadium have plenty of accommodation options in boutique guesthouses, B&Bs and swish hotels. Here’s our pick of the best, all bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Seton Guest House

A mile from Glasgow Green, this family-run guesthouse is a 25-minute walk from the city centre and just 20 minutes from the bars and restaurants of Merchant City. Double bedrooms all come with king-sized beds, so you can spread out, and large, Victorian windows look out at a leafy green park across the road. In the morning, a hearty Scottish breakfast is on offer, cooked by your hosts.

2. Cathedral House

Built in handsome baronial style in 1896, Cathedral House is a Glasgow landmark. Each of the eight boutique rooms has individual character and style – some in dusky sunset pinks and purples, others in slate grey and mustard yellow. As the name suggests, the grandest rooms have views of Glasgow Cathedral in all its gothic splendour. Dinner is served Italian-style in Celentano’s restaurant, where the ravioli is handmade and the negronis pack a punch.

3. Fraser Suites Glasgow

The serviced apartments in this grand Victorian building in Merchant City offer all the luxury of a five-star hotel with the convenience of self-catering – though the restaurants and bars in this renovated Glasgow quarter might tempt you away from the kitchenette. Studios, one- and two-bedroomed apartments can accommodate up to four, and come with generous living areas decked out with plush furnishings. In the morning, a buffet breakfast is served.

4. Jurys Inn

Settle in for a meal at the Grill Bar, where a fine whisky selection accompanies the Scottish steak on the menu. At breakfast, you’ll find a buffet serving continental and hot options.

5. The Fullarton Park Hotel

Rooms cover every style of travel – a single, a double, two twins, and a big family room for those who want to stay close together. Meals are served in the light-filled conservatory. A light breakfast is included with every booking; you can upgrade to a full-cooked breakfast if you want something more substantial.
