Why We Love This Hotel
- The hotel occupies a 19th-century former manor residence

- Anne Hathaway's Cottage is around five minutes' walk away
Burnside Hotel is in Shottery -- a small town a mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon. The hotel occupies a 19th-century former manor residence, which has been fully renovated and is now a 21-room boutique hotel.
Shottery is famously the childhood home of Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare's wife. The 15th-century cottage where she lived is a 5-minute walk from the hotel. The property's "perfect location" (Britain's Finest) is five minutes' drive or around 20 minutes' walk from the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon; the hotel runs a shuttle service, costing £5, each way. You can watch a play put on by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Royal Shakespeare Theature or visit Shakespeare's Birthplace -- a 16th-century half-timbered house, now a museum. Every year the town celebrates Shakespeare's birthday on the closest weekend to 26 April.
The Burnside restaurant serves seasonal dishes prepared using local ingredients. The kitchen has its own tandoor oven, and serves a special Tandoori Night menu every Thursday. The hotel recommends booking in advance, as the restaurant is open daily to both the public and hotel guests.
All Double Deluxe Rooms come equipped with a 40-inch Samsung smart TV, luxury toiletries, and bathrobes and slippers. Higher-category room types benefit from extra space with handmade furniture, Burlington showers and kingsize beds with Egyptian cotton linen.
