Sherbrook Castle Hotel / Glasgow
Sherbrook Castle Hotel is more than just a mere hotel. It’s an opportunity to take a step back in time and escape to the late 19th century for your mini-moon. Built in 1896, Sherbrook boasts a number of unusual features – from the arrangement of rooms around three sides of a large hall and a staircase, to the romantic Baronialism on the outside of the building. In fact, its high square tower is one of the best-known local landmarks.
This magnificent Baronial building offers luxury bedrooms, including a very special tower suite, a bar and a restaurant. The peaceful surroundings of the hotel are perfect for serene walks. Pollokshields, a conservation area established by the Stirling-Maxwell family in 1849, feels like a leafy Victorian suburb and is located right by the hotel.
Sherbrook Castle Hotel itself is also very conveniently located – it’s only 10 minutes away from the city centre and 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. If you feel like exploring the city, the world famous Burrell Collection, Bellahouston Park and the House for an Art Lover are nearby. Alternatively, those who are looking to embark on a road trip for their mini-moon will find that the M8 and M77 Motorways are within easy access.
