Welcome to the Award-Winning Burnside Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon

Welcome to the Award-winning Burnside Hotel, an independently owned luxury 24-room boutique hotel located in the charming and historic village of Shottery, just a mile from the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon and conveniently situated for driving access to the railway station.

Originally an imposing 19thCentury manor residence, Burnside Hotel has been sympathetically fully restored and extended to the highest standards to provide a luxury guest experience, which is why we have been crowned as the Best Boutique Hotel in Warwickshire by LUX Life.

The village location itself offers pleasant walks amongst other period properties and is just a 5-minute walk to the internationally famous, iconic Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, the family home of Shakespeare’s wife.
