​​Find – and book with Culture Trip – the best accommodation in Glasgow close to Scotland’s national football stadium, Hampden Park.

Hampden Park in Mount Florida, Glasgow is the national football stadium of Scotland. With a capacity of more than 50,000 people, the grounds are also in big demand by artists on stadium tours – Beyoncé, Take That and the Rolling Stones have all taken to the stage here in recent years. You can choose to stay in the thick of things in the lively city centre, or pick a hotel close to the laid-back and leafy southeast suburb of Mount Florida.

Between Crosshill and Mount Florida train stations, this large Victorian house is home to a four-star hotel, bar-restaurant and stunning beer garden edged by big trees. Some of the 26 bedrooms are in an adjacent townhouse, but the booking site makes it clear where you’ll be staying. It tends to hold weekend events, which can be noisy.

3mi from Hampden Park in Pollokshields, handsome Sherbrooke Castle is all red sandstone and crenellated turrets. Once a private baronial villa, it became a hotel just before World War II. You can book a room in the castle, the cottage or the garden suites – the hotel sits in extensive private gardens. There are 18 rooms and four event spaces, and as you might imagine, it’s often booked for weddings.

Once the headquarters for the Royal Scottish Automobile Club, Blythswood is now a sleek landmark hotel in the city centre. Georgian opulence begins with the stone exterior and continues into the vast lobby, whereas rooms are more contemporary – though the suites have large original sash windows. The spa thermal experience is not to be missed, but you must book treatments in advance. Parking can be paid for, or the concierge will order you a taxi.
