A look at some of the best Hotels inside or near Football Stadiums in the UK

When you travel to support your team or watch a big match, a hotel room at the stadium can be the ultimate base. Forget those long journeys to the stadium, crowded public transport, finding a good fan base in an unknown city, or getting lost on your way back to a random hotel after a few celebratory drinks… A room or suite at one of our Top 10 stadium hotels can help you make the most of your visit – before, during, and after the game, and beyond.

Hotels In Football Stadiums

Sportshotels.com is known for finding quality hotels around the UK and around the world to suit the greatest sporting holidays. These stadium hotels will get you closest to the action, and many of them offer deals and packages specifically designed for sports enthusiasts. These five even have rooms with a view of the pitch so you can watch other matches and practice sessions, and feel the energy build.

DoubleTree By Hilton Milton KeynesStadium MK

This Hilton is built into Stadium MK, and is only an 8-minute drive from the train station. It’s all you need for a comfortable stay supporting the MK Dons or for any other events at Marshall Arena, and the hotel has conferencing and meeting facilities too if you want to bring a team of your own. There’s even a warm cookie on arrival to make you feel welcome!

Guests have great things to say about the “football vibe” and fantastic view of the pitch, as well as the quality of accommodation, helpful staff, and tasty breakfasts.

There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby, but without leaving the hotel you can treat yourself at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, or tuck in at the Pitchside Restaurant and Bar.

Holiday Inn Norwich CityCarrow Road

Built into Norwich City Football Club’s Stadium, with great pitch views from many of the rooms, this hotel is a favourite with football fans and leisure travellers alike.

It’s easy to get to, with a 10-minute walk to the railway station or a 10-minute drive into the city centre, with plenty of buses available.

The restaurant will get you ready for a hard day’s cheering, with popular breakfasts and handy meal packages. From a full family deal to pizza and prosecco or burgers and beer, there’s something for everyone after the game.

This is an excellent base to turn your sports overnighter into a weekend away for the whole family.  

Bolton Whites HotelThe Macron Stadium

This hotel was built by football fans, for football fans. It has a popular Pitchview pre-match package from only £22 per person, as well as matchday bed & breakfast packages with early check-in and late check-out at 1pm, so you can sleep in. You can watch BWFC from your own balcony with a perfect view of the pitch.

DoubleTree by Hilton Coventry Building Society ArenaCoventry Building Society Arena

It’s no surprise there’s another Hilton DoubleTree on our list, and this one is in Coventry. Many of us still think of this stadium as the Ricoh Arena, but it is now officially the Coventry Building Society Arena – home to the Wasps and Coventry City Football Club – and the hotel is firmly nestled within the stadium walls, less than 5 miles from the city centre.

Rooms with pitch views are first prize, but any other room or suite will provide the same Hilton standards and comfort we know and love. This hotel also has a casino and pet-friendly rooms, with an on-site restaurant and room service keeping guests well-fed before and after the match.

If you’re after more than football, the city of Coventry features theatres, restaurants, and sightseeing to keep everyone entertained, and there’s a railway station within the arena, making it even easier to get around.

Blackpool FC HotelBloomfield Road

Blackpool Football Club guests have a four star hotel option that’s right inside the stadium, complete with the Corner Flag restaurant and pub, a luxurious spa, and the lights of Blackpool within easy reach. The seafront is a quick 6-minute walk away, making the stadium hotel a fantastic base for endless fun.

Choose from pitch view or town view rooms, and indulge in a Sunday Spa package, or afternoon tea overlooking the pitch. This hotel is also well-equipped to host conferences and events, so you can make a football match part of an occasion, conference or teambuilding.

Hotels located opposite or very close to a stadium

You won’t necessarily wake up to a view of your team on the pitch, but these hotels are so close to the stadiums that you can feel the roar of the crowd and and be part of every game. They make walking to and from a match quick and easy, and Sportshotels.com is impressed with their facilities and consistently great reviews.

Hotel FootballOld Trafford

“Eat. Drink. Sleep. Football” is the tagline, and this hotel delivers on that, time and time again. This hotel does in fact have excellent stadium views, and there are “squad rooms” specially kitted out for families – in addition to various other room types.

Hilton London WembleyWembley Stadium
